10:40 pm
this is bbc news. i'm ben brown. the headlines at 11:00: mps fail to resolve the brexit deadlock after rejecting the eight alternative options put remember, as she explained so many to them in a ballot. times, the eu would ideally like it to go through, that's looking difficult at the moment. let's bring in respect of mr kenneth clarke's in christian, to ask them to help us motionje, with the impossible task of trying to plot the next few days along. we in respect of mr kenneth clarke's motion je, customs union, in respect of mr kenneth clarke's motionje, customs union, the ayes thought we spoke a few hours ago, we re motionje, customs union, the ayes were 265, the noes were 272. so the friday was a big day it could be another boat but i guess we don't noes habit. just make habit. the know for sure any more. now, i suspect she will bring it back for a vote though we'll see what comes after tomorrow. i like they say in striking thing is that two of them received more votes in the house of the house, but i was looking at the results and it's amazing what you commons than the prime minister's see when you look at them or mark, deal got when it was defeated for when you look at the customs union the second time. from this, there was no majority tonight for any of them. but he felt just eight short, and it was the closest one to bring them back majority in favour of one of the
10:41 pm
options, suggest short from saying yes, that's what we could back. christian, could i jump yes, that's what we could back. christian, could ijump in, the point of the customs union is here and if you can't cut your entree deal suffer a loss of brexiteers, that was a big selling point of brexit that they could sell its trade deal, so presumably parliament talks towards that, then the brexit wing of the tory party is under extreme pressure. yes, i think that's a fair point and this is the plate the prime minister has been making all along and again tojeremy corbyn today that a permit customs union would roll out uk independent trade policy, so you know, it does keep the uk closely aligned to the european union. but i suppose, with those who backed teresa mae's deal would say is that the insurance policy of a customs union and the backstop, and driven —— given there is no majority way forward we are in
10:42 pm
a crisis point which is a couple of weeks ago, is it not better to pass the deal and then had longer debate about where we go after that but of course those who want a second referendum, the wind is back in their cells tonight by looking at margaret beckett and that meant motion and they would say that's very good for us so it's off to play for we see where we go on monday, second round of the voting it'll be one to watch. hello and welcome to our look
10:43 pm
ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are caroline wheeler, deputy political editor of the sunday times & henry mance, political correspondent of the financial times (pres) many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the guardian leads with those indicative brexit votes — where mps voted against every option they had come up with. the metro goes with theresa may's offer to conservative mps to step down if her deal is passed. the financial times reports the same story, but says hardliners are sticking to their guns and the sun also splashes with what it calls ther—exit. those are all the papers we've had in so far. let's take a look at some of those front pages in more detail. sta rt start at the guardian i supposed to be stories really, so much drama, but that's parliamentary indicative beds and the prime minister saying
10:44 pm
that she will go if a deal gets through, let's start off with the indicative vote, where you surprised they can agree to a single one? no not at all, i think we are just saying about this, it's like a merry—go—round it's round and round and round we go, one step forward you think that it has been opened up a gabion indicative both of us to find something, which the house of commons could find a consensus around, and of course one of the things the government has been saying all along is actually, there is no consensus, saying all along is actually, there is no consensus, everyone saying all along is actually, there is no consensus, everyone has their own views on what brexit is and what he should look like. no one is going to come up with something that cannot support at the house. customs union wasn't too far out. no it wasn't but what's interesting to know and i think it's where the story moves on from, of course on the basis that she doesn't actually get the deal through the sea, which is well, it's a possibility earlier on but seeing the dup statement this evening, if again looking quite shaky again with she can do it but
10:45 pm
where a custom here is here going to narrow down the options now. so you've got afm today, and the suggestion is bring forward more boats on monday, and that perhaps a position where people have to really start focusing down on what they want, but of christ that's going to open all sorts of scenarios as well, you know, some way it is difficult to gain not, do people want soft brexit what their support for customs union in order to support a second referendum. and those that don't want a second referendum than vice versa. did they do at the other way around so you can then just end up way around so you can then just end up with lots of inconclusive results all the time, and this is the huge problem. how do you see it in terms of indicative votes, it will we have another round and if so what does it mean? i take away is there are two options tonight they got more votes than her deal, so when it does with the customs union and another was second referendum they're not fully formed and ready to go but they are
10:46 pm
i think indications that there may be potential to get to a majority, if you had a ranking system that basically forced you towards an outcome said this isjust the as many outcome said this isjust the as 5 outcome said this isjust the as many easy like yes i know i'll abstain to you want but i know abstain to you want but i know abstain if you want that on monday it's more likely they use some kind of syste m it's more likely they use some kind of system whereby you have to rank your preferences and an the least popular a winner, which has 317 votes. but none of it is binding on the prime minister government. no, she said some can't be negotiable and not committing but then others said in response we can legislate if we've really come up with a solution and you refuse to legislate a contempt of parliament to be, we can go through legislation to force the hands situation is tricky, it's not quite as bleak as the headline makes out. i mean we knew people weren't instinctively going to rally around one idea, this is perhaps the start of the process rather than the final word parliament will have. quite a
10:47 pm
good headline, parliament finally had to say and then, eight nose. anyway let's move on to the second strand of the story today that brexit story, which is prime minister saying that if her deal goes through she'll be off in the summer. goes through she'll be off in the summer. again, where you surprised oi’ summer. again, where you surprised ordid summer. again, where you surprised or did you see it coming. it's interesting the suggestion she has to follow and resorted to command enough support to get the deal through has been knocking around now for several weeks. the suggestion being that you know ultimately that could swing people over to support her, and immediately after we had the 9022 committee this afternoon, it was boris johnson first out of the trap saying actually, this was enough to convince him that he would in fact support a deal. was it a surprise she made the decision today? i think there was a suggestion it'll be more implicit, not. you think she promised torres as she met at the do you think that's the promise he made there?
10:48 pm
logic is let's happen, but not something that's confirmed by downing street at all, but certainly something i was told earlier that day was that she wasn't going to expressly come that she was going to leave if they backed radio, but there was a sort of an implicit understanding among stand that she was going to do it, so from my perspective i think. so it's explicit. it is but it isn't, again she says she doesn't think she's a person to be there to see and never see the next phase of negotiations. and she has said that clearly, but it's all depended on her deal getting through, and the other thing which has not been made much of, as if she does not get it there, my understanding is that number ten are quite happy for her to continue and be obstinate and they want that threat there at that she will just keep going on and on. best hotmail ofa keep going on and on. best hotmail of a slow brexit and which perhaps it all drags on for months and
10:49 pm
months and she stays prime minister. exactly if you're boris johnson or older generation now of tory mps and you think the sooner the leadership contest comes, the more of a chance of winning at the four new faces like dominic rob come and become established, you can get out the door as soon as possible. i have to say though, i think this was a sort of inevitable turn of events that she would have to come at the last car chance to play she lost about twice polemic and she got to try and offer money, try talking to dp, trying to put back to brussels is everything she has, but is also something slightly extraordinary about the prime minister saying she's going to resign if they get the deal through. telling that to tory mps in a closed meeting, not coming out and doing a statement to the public hour to parliament, i think these images of her in the car, it's not how you expect the prime minister to leave, you expected to be in front of the cameras expressing sadness as david
10:50 pm
cameron did in 2016 about living office. but does not take the question as to whether or not she really believe she's going, that's what we are saying, ultimately if she doesn't get the deal through, and she doesn't leave, she knows no one can really touch her until he get to december, which is when the immunity runs out again. that's look at their financial times, they've got the second story, she offers to resign in the final plea backing that brexit deal, as we discussed, some of the brexiteers have come on boy for the deal, boris johnson, jacob rees—mogg and so on, but others have not. so the erg is as it's called, the brexiteers group in the tory party, she's pretty divided. and of course dp had been to, so where are we? i mean, is it her deal still a long way short you think of getting enough votes?|j think of getting enough votes?” think there was some expectation that the dup was slightly more in a place where they were going to say
10:51 pm
make a swing in behind her. i mean, secondly, before the last meeting for that one end, there was a sense that the latest —— legal advice to trade it happening. this suggestion was that they were both signed up to it than they wear i went and actually came to pass. i think the issue though with a hard rub still vips who don't want to back it. and they said publicly i would not vote for a day bl whatsoever stopped to let you know, mark francois whined those people saying they want back it, and you know the argument is. it's not brexit, it's a backlash once said to me this evening, and they not be in years' time, by five yea rs, they not be in years' time, by five years, i think the public will remember that i not see it as being delivering a brexit, so... without the hard core erg she can't get the deal through. i the the hard core erg she can't get the dealthrough. i the deal the hard core erg she can't get the deal through. i the deal -- the hard core erg she can't get the dealthrough. ithe deal -- dup the hard core erg she can't get the dealthrough. i the deal -- dup sits on their hands and but i think i
10:52 pm
relate out explicitly as well this evening. you think that could be a late change of heart. we have another 2a hour is that for going for the boat on a friday, and we know the dup are very good at negotiations they can extract negotiations they can extract negotiations exactly what they want, perhaps they see some benefit and this. is difficult for the dup to turn from the language they use which is about backstop in the weighting of the agreement, it's not given as an e1 weighting of the agreement, it's not given as an £1 billion for a regional project is not given as reinsurance it's record this agreement doesn't work for us. that, i think agreement doesn't work for us. that, ithink is... agreement doesn't work for us. that, i think is... theresa may stopping it -- i think is... theresa may stopping it —— talking about telling or saying. could be worse -- making it worse because they spoke to those close to the conservative party, and they haven't heard it —— like what they haven't heard it —— like what they heard because they feel those people are more willing to sell out on the union had to create borders between great britain and northern
10:53 pm
ireland, then exit theresa may, who always talked about being a prime unionist despite having backstop, which they dislike. but in fact, make —— might make them less happy. that they'd meaningful vote and then a fourth meeting for the.” that they'd meaningful vote and then a fourth meeting for the. i mean everything is so uncertain, we may have a third one, the speaker, who e njoys have a third one, the speaker, who enjoys putting every spoke of the wheel, he put another one today saying by the way i heard that the procedural mechanism you can use to try and bring back that the stats if it does not changed, you can't shoot it does not changed, you can't shoot it it out it has to be changed, so they have to change the deal split that agreement or something, but my find lots of little ways, and then decide if they have a majority in the house. it's really impossible to predict, we can predict on monday the borisjohnson was predict, we can predict on monday the boris johnson was swing a predict, we can predict on monday the borisjohnson was swing a mind to be we can predict on monday the borisjohnson was to be we can predict on monday the boris johnson was swinging behind the deal like today, but you just. feel sorry for all the people in the eu watching all this i try to make sense of it all. let's look at the
10:54 pm
sign finally, which is the front page we have, same story. i am off back deal, the prime minister bows to the last brexit bag but dup refuses to budge. if you finally come it wasn't until monday then someone come it wasn't until monday then someone called on her. so it's a pretty good campaign if you ask for monday and get it by wednesday. how say this, is it teresa exited? it's not easy to say i don't think that will catch on. there is, is there a certain honour and the prime ministers saying this is the deal i believe in and i am willing to sacrifice my premiership for this?” think one of the things that has been talked about and the last few days particularly after the discussion of whether or not there is going to be asking herfrom discussion of whether or not there is going to be asking her from the cabinet has been about getting her —— letting go of integrity and also with respectability, i said yes and she's going to drag kicking and
10:55 pm
screaming are they will come for her, there was a sense of wanting to go on your own terms, it's interesting, how many prime minister is ever really leave on their own terms. you know, there's always a situation where there is a general election and they lose it and get booted out and have to do a walk of shame, or there is an event.” suppose she can look back and say if she gets her deal through, that's what i achieved, i guided through. but remember the speech he gave on coming into downing street about burning the injustices it's about starting at executive pays in a racial disparities in digestive system. there's so much she wanted to do which she has not been able to andl to do which she has not been able to and i think reality is chaotic —— catching up with a quicker than she liked. and it brings us to another possibly conservatives prime minister? absolutely. who is next? that's it for the papers. they will
10:56 pm
both be back as well i at half past 11 for another look at the front page and scan that we may have a few more by then. coming up at 11 o'clock more on the brexit boats. good evening, no major changes in the next few days, meaning from some of you that may be a little bit grey and cloudy, likely saw on the coast today, there is blue shy shown and thenif today, there is blue shy shown and then if anything more in the way it's guys like this come across the country through a ten mile and indeed into friday. at that today, you can see what happens at the clear skies, central high—pressure toys as outlets, becloud pushing around, northern and eastern areas and cloudy skies today, he breaks here and there isolated touch of frost, overcast skies again towards wales at mid is not the thing that most likely to see across a two to
