answering questions on brexit. we have christian fraser and chris morris standing by to help yacht. any question you have got about where brexit has got to... while theresa may has been making her case in brussels, but let's be clear, this was not the situation she wanted to end up in. here's laura kunz berg saying... and let's the uk awaits its fate. a country that has a permanent seat work through how the prime minister on the un security council has shifted her position. first of will have its future decided all who she is talking about whether by its neighbours. this evening, the eu the brexit deal, she agreed with the will take two decisions — eu could be changed. no such alternative deal exists. whether to grant a brexit extension, the political declaration sets and if does so, how long the framework for the future that extension will be. relationship, and the next phase the uk has no control of negotiations will be our chance to shape their relationship. over either decision. but we cannot begin those talks unless, or until, we agreed if any of the eu's 27 member states the terms of our withdrawal. vetoes an extension, and the european union will not agree to any other deal for that withdrawal.
the uk will leave the we will now take this mandate forward, and seek to obtain european union in two days — legally binding changes to withdrawal agreement. with a deal or not. the deal with concerns we do know one thing. on the backstop, while guaranteeing theresa may wants a brexit delay no hard manure return to a hard tilljune 30 at the latest. border between northern the prime minister spoke earlier. ireland and ireland. i have been working to make sure we can leave the european union. indeed, we could have left the the prime minister has also shifted european union by now but parliament on whether brexit is going to be did not pass the europe withdrawal delayed. agreement. we need that extra time an extension to article 50, a delay in this to ensure we can get a deal through process, doesn't deliver a decision in parliament, parliament that can enable us to it doesn't deliver a deal. work ina if the house, having rejected parliament that can enable us to work in a smooth and orderly way. leaving with the deal negotiated with the eu, then rejects leaving on the 29th of march, some important updates from without a withdrawal agreement and brussels. this from reuters. future framework. the government will on the 14th of march, bring forward a motion on whether parliament wants to seek a short limited extension to article 50. and then she changed her position on how long that this is that you concerned that if extension was likely to be. the prime minister is replaced by someone the prime minister is replaced by someone else who does not agree with the arrangement she signs up for, they could disrupt them. let's look the house has to understand and accept that if it is not willing to support a deal in the coming days,
and as it is not willing to support at this from reuters. leaving without a deal on the 29th of march, than it is suggesting that there will need to be a much longer extension to article 50. remember, the french are taking a such an extension would harder line than most you members —— undoubtedly require the united kingdom and to hold european elections in may... most eu members. donald tusk has as prime minister, i am... order! said we need serious guarantees. the french are staying at the moment, we i am not prepared to delay brexit have not not those guarantees. any any further than the 30th ofjune. eu members can veto this plans. this we are about to find out this from the brexit summit... remember, evening if indeed she will accept a delay that goes beyond the 30th of june. we don't know the outcome of that you's to liberations, but all that's a version of what the prime of these chaps and changes, combined minister has already asked for. she with any number of government is setting june 30 as an end date to defeats in the house of commons, the extension but she says she would means that her authority as prime like to get brexit done sooner. minister has been badly damaged. looks like the you is saying we like already people are looking beyond the format but not the date. perhaps her. here's a report from chris mason yesterday, about two cabinet
consider a longer extension but with an option to end it sooner. i was about how cabinet ministers within the conservative party already manoeuvring. remember the mentioning donald tusk. he is the prime minister has said she'll stand down if deal gets through president of the european council. we talked about this yesterday. parliament. that's a big if of course — but ministers are already openly he favours a longer talking about who they'll extension of up to a year. back to replace her. yesterday, he wrote here's one of them. to the national leaders that he represents and said... there are a number of people obviously scouting around at the moment for support. he may want to avoid humilation. and who do you fancy? so i mean i will be honest, that precise word has been used i backed savid javid when he was part of by many commentators to describe the team with stephen crabb and all, this stage of the process for the uk. and i'll do so again, i think savage this is how the irish prime minister javid is best placed if he runs to represent modern britain and take the tory party categorises the situation. forward post brexit. lets bringing christian frazier in it's evident the united kingdom is brussels, here we are again ina very it's evident the united kingdom is in a very difficult position. they christian, good to speak to you. i guess all of the chewing and have got themselves into a bit of a throwing in westminster doesn't give you a great deal of confidence when fix. they don't want to leave without a deal and they don't want it's trying to work out how to to vote for the deal at the moment deal with brexit the medium—term. and half don't want to leave it all,
so and half don't want to leave it all, soi well i think the prime minister put and half don't want to leave it all, so i think we need to give them flexibility by giving them a little ona well i think the prime minister put on a better performance tonight than more time to come up with a she did back in march. lessons learned as far as number ten is concerned. they put a lot of legwork solution. into the meetings in the last two and the core message from the eu is that an extension has days, phone calls, that to berlin to serve a clear purpose. this is michel barnier. and paris. so they know little bit 0ne one point is important. the more about the process. and it is processed that she setting out, extension has to be useful and serve because we all know nothing concrete has come out of these talks with the labour at the moment. all she can a purpose, and our point to is it's very unusual extension has to be useful and serve a purpose, and our common extension has to be useful and serve a purpose, and our common purpose is situation in uk politics, whether to get ratification of the having across party negotiation. if withdrawal agreement. that doesn't work, and she's not and a reminder, these talks are putting any time frame on it this going on right now. as and when we evening for the eu leaders, if that doesn't work, then she sang love, will put all the brexit options to get developments, they can go quite the uk parliament, they will have a late into the night in brussels, but free vote on all of those options as those developments emerge, we'll command whenever there's a majority bring them to you. for, the uk government will stick by that. that is the process she here are the main players arriving. setting out. the problem is of emmanuel macron is taking the hardest line — course, this question of whether the saying an extension must have conditions attached. we showed you that statement from uk takes part in the european elections, it's a very sensitive the french presidency a moment ago. time for european leaders. and what theresa may is actually saying in he also said nothing should her letter is, i want an extension be taken for granted. untiljune the 30th, but obviously
remember, he alone could force the uk to leave on friday. if we pass this withdrawal agreement the french president and his own anytime between now and then, then right has more power than the uk we don't want to take part in it. government over what happens to the that is confusing and irritating to uk at the moment. he is also the european parliament, into many of those leaders who are in the battling his own domestic pressures. room. tells about these can conditions the french want, and the this is interesting from some french detail and how they work in practical terms. as it stands, there posters. his approval rating is 29%. will be rigorous conditions put into the extension if and when it's that is incredibly low. he has his agreed. there will be known in own issues to deal with other than coaching of the withdrawal brexit. agreement, there will be no in—depth next, angela merkel. negotiation over the future she has said she supports relationship, and of course as i've an extension — but, remember, any eu decision must be unanimous. just said, the uk would be expected let's bring in the bbc‘s damian to ta ke just said, the uk would be expected to take part in the european elections, if indeed the deal is ratified by the end of the week, which will be. then pass that, there grammaticas. experts are watching is this concern that the uk could for clues. what do you make of where we are getting to? those comments become some sort of truculent member from emmanuel macron, those comments on its way out, getting in the way of discussions over and eu budget, he made on the way in, or something over the selection of commissioners, and the head of the commission. that worth watching because as you were saying, they need to reach a
sort of thing. it might play unanimous decision. that doesn't hardball. so the french originally really ultimately mean that we said that they would want a review expect the french to veto everything but what it means is they can sort of sway the centre of gravity of the and renewal process, a rolling three month review of the extension to see decision more their way, and mr whether the uk is behaving itself. legally, that's very difficult, because the uk would stay within the european union with all the rights that every member has. so they've macron was saying now is decision put ina that every member has. so they've put in a paragraph i understand into time. he had a couple of key these draft conclusions, and it made principles. 0ne changes, it always does, through the time. he had a couple of key principles. one is we must not danger the european project, as he course of the evening. a paragraph puts it. that points to tough in there which basically gets a commitment from the uk signed to you conditions. he said nothing could be taken from the guaranteed, no long know, to uphold the roles come into extension... he heard all the talk behave themselves, and not to play ha rd ball behave themselves, and not to play hardball with the eu. whether that's about the long extension. nothing going to satisfy the french side or like that could be guaranteed. it's a signal the french are talking not, we will wait and see. emmanuel ollie will be the last to speak i about a shorter amount of time. he think tonight, and he is the one did say the decision time is now. that's driving the hard bargain. the uk voted to leave. he said we should not be fighting to stand in christian for the moment, thank you. if you have any news come back. i their way. he may have had some know will be back in a minute anyway tough questions for theresa may and to help us with questions from the indications they are that the eve ryo ne to help us with questions from everyone watching. remember, if french will put serious conditions you've got questions for christian, on the uk staying in and limit, andindeed you've got questions for christian, and indeed for chris morris from the
bbc reality check team, they'll both be live and what is a few minutes' trying to limit its power to do time now on outside source. we've already got quite a few questions, influence come a particular but keep them coming. we will work long—term decisions the eu will there as many as we can. needless to say, we will be able to answer some take. the other thing is date wise. all of them such as what will that you offer in the end, but those that what date is going to beis it as we can answer, of course we will short as theresa may wants? maybe we take. now, let's turn to washington. are looking at something along the the us attorney general says american authorities spied on donald trump's presidential shorter end or in between. some talk campaign in 2016. here you go. here it must be six months, which i am going to be reviewing both would be late summer, but for new the genesis and the conduct of intelligence activities directed european commission, european council president take up their at the trump campaign during 2016. roles for subset could be a time, a sort of a natural break. all sorts i think spying on a of things in play, but i think we political campaign is a big deal. should look for some tough it's a big deal. so you're not suggesting though that spying occurred? conditions from the french. should look for some tough i don't, well, i guess you could... conditions from the frenchlj should look for some tough conditions from the french. i guess no one is going anywhere. do we have any idea when the leaders may emerge? no. in a word. that's one of the sort of guessing games here. i think there was spying did occurred, yes i did think spying
occurred. everyone was asking everyone, how he also said he doesn't think there was improper surveillance. long you think it is going to be? which left a lot of people thinking how late do you think we are going — hold on, aren't those two to sta ke how late do you think we are going to stake was mac and everybodyjust things contradictory? did not know. i think there was a sense that in this summit, the he it was one tweet we saw who leaders had been talking to each other quite a lot beforehand trying said... to align their positions. mrs may had been yesterday to paris and berlin, also trying to align thinking closer to hers. that might ina way is that right she asks, i'm going to thinking closer to hers. that might in a way mean they came and prepared need anthony to help me out here. with some sort of ideas, but what you never know with these sort of was that a decent summary? events, particularly language and yeah, ithink eight there are crucial decisions, was that a decent summary? yeah, i think that certainly is a political decisions, to be made, how start one way to look at this. we do know that there was surveillance, a the dynamic will go and how long the leaders will argue it out and slug government wiretap for carter page, it out themselves, and how much mr who was an adviser to donald trump's presidential campaign. but it wasn't macron wants to bang the table and authorised until after carter page he is heard. i think we could be looking for a little bit yet from left the campaign. then there have been news reports about the fbi's them to get through all of the things that the leaders want to air use of informants reaching out to tonight. because this is a pretty people who are in trump's presidential campaign. carter page
crucial decision for them, remember. being one of them, george do they want the uk and with a tough papadopoulos being another, sam deadline looming or a long deadline clovis being a third, that hasn't into next year that been confirmed by the government, would you call that spying, spying isa would you call that spying, spying is a very loaded term. it could be the uk staying as a sort of half viewed also as part of into the half outcome with an eye on its exit. damian, stay with us. counterintelligence investigation by the fbi, because they had indications that russia was trying to metal in the us 2016 election. so i think what's noteworthy here is something else happening in brussels today — listening to will bar talk about the first ever image of a black this, and use the same sort of hole was unveiled. language that the president used, in more about that later. but as you can imagine, saying that the investigators that's a gift commentators essentially are going to be on brexit had. investigated. that something that this was peter brookes in the times donald trump has been calling for — suggesting theresa may's plan for a long time, republicans in adds up to a blank page. congress have been calling for a enter the internet. peter's cartoon long time. so it is a rather significant development, if this is more thanjust has been changed. there is the black significant development, if this is more than just a show. thank you anthony, don't go anywhere, got hole. plenty to ask you about the chair of and this is from one the housejudiciary plenty to ask you about the chair of the house judiciary committee jerry nadler. he says these comments dutch cartoonist — directly contradict... he is talking featuring the spea ker‘s "0rder, order!" coming from the black hole. and this worth emphasising, too.
this from the bbc‘s jack evans. of course of robert mueller and his and he shared some of the literature inquiry into alleged collusion that comes with the summits, and you between russia and the trump can see theresa may listed not as an campaign during the 2016 election. eu leader but as a guest. he submitted his report to the justice dept almost three weeks ago. neither the public or 0ther wire copy coming in. that you politicians have seen it yet. we do have a summary written you saying we are going to have more by mr barr that told us there was no meetings without britain —— the eu. evidence of collusion. all of which leads me to ask you, he now says that a redacted report is expected to be released to the public within the week. damian, while we wait for that, where is theresa may now and how did president trump has asked mr barr to look into the origins of the inquiry. she fit into the process? she had to here's the president. it was an illegal investigation, it was started illegally. everything about it was crooked. leave the room when the other 27 eu this was an attempted coup. leaders set to discuss what they this is an attempted will prepared to give as an take—down of a president. and we beat them. we beat them. extension. i think what she will anthony those are strong words, an have done is go across the road to the british mission, if you will, attempted coup, completely illegal from the be getting. how's the president went to back that up?
here. they are just literally across i guess that is the question. he has the road. what then happens is as been calling this a political improper investigation into his the road. what then happens is as the leaders come up with something, presidency from the very beginning, and of course when that 4—page there will be a shuttle process back and forth, at least once, maybe letter from william barr summarising the molar reports came out, he more, as they will take to her what claimed total indication that he had been exonerated because robert muell they have decided. because it has to bea they have decided. because it has to be a decision the uk agrees with his decided not to file any addition all wealth of she will have to sign up tonight and by indicating her charges on his path possible consent, that will indicate an collusion investigation, i think agreement of all sides which it's going to be interesting to see when we do get this report that the tomorrow would be then sort of deal it details and there we know sanctified. it will be written down the top line that no new charges in the exchange of letters. the we re the top line that no new charges were filed, but we don't know if ambassador here, or mrs may's there was anything that could be politically damaging within that report. so you know, this could also ambassador here, or mrs may's ambassador would send a letter donald trump's rhetoric here could saying she has excepted this also be viewed as a way of conditions. that is the sort of diplomatic little dance that goes attempting to undermine any sort of on. i should say that one cartoon damage that could come from the about the uk being a guest, mueller reports, once it comes out. technically, this is a summit for things anthony, appreciate it. the 27 leaders who remain in. i that's anthony at the bbc newsroom in washington. i'm here the bbc newsroom in london. in a few guess that's why they would say mrs minutes, we will turn to the most
shared story today. scientists reveal the first ever may, although the uk is a full eu image of a black hole, member, is a guest at this summit. and it's one of the largest in the universe. very useful. thanks, damian. we more details on that in a minute. appreciated. dan dalton is a british conservative children dealing with mental member of the european parliament. health problems in england face a postcode lottery when it comes to getting the help they need. mr dalton, thank you very much for being with us. some people have that's according to a new report by the children's commissioner. our health correspondent sophie described this whole process today asa described this whole process today as a national humiliation for the hutchinson has more on the story. uk. how would you describe it?m a mindfulness lesson not what we wanted. that's for sure for these children, to help with the pressures of life. for we hoped we would get the deal through parliament before we got to but for those suffering from low—level depression this stage. and certainly not something we want. i would not or anxiety, school counsellors and drop—in centres are thought to be helpful. discovered as a humiliation but is today, however, a report not what we would have wanted. but uk is lost all control of something by the children's commissioner has warned that access to that which was supposed to be about help is patchy. the report shows large regional taking back control. that is the variations in the amount spent by local authorities on low—level article 50 process. once you trigger mental health support. article 50 process. once you trigger article 50, and if we cannot get the the most is almost £18 deal through westminster, you end up per child in london. in this situation. we recognise the power of this is what the ee you but compare that to around e7 in the south—east,
leaders and it is certainly not and the lowest is around just £5 where he wanted to be. we are. how in the east of england. that means that children and parents can't rely on what is there. would you qualify or quantify so there is funding available success for theresa may today centrally, but it is being left to local authorities and to local asked health ccgs, to decide how much is spent. she asked originally for an i want much, much more scrutiny nationally. but while some parts of the country june 30 extension. are spending a lot less, june 30 extension. if you can get the report did find overall spending the extension at shortest possible, on services, like counsellors, that goes closer and closer success because that gives her the had risen by 17%. opportunity to then try and drive the aim of low—level support the deal one more time through the is to prevent mental illness from escalating and the need house of commons if possible. the for hospital admissions. it is clearly much better to support a young person when problems first emerge, rather than waiting for a long time. i mean, we hear about children whose problem with that idea she had a problems have got worse ha rd problem with that idea she had a hard deadline before and at the last and they have dropped out of school, moment lincoln made clear she actually wants go for no deal in any and that means one of their parents circumstance. that doesn't work, might have to leave work and look after them. does it was it can have devastating effects on the whole family. the government insists it is focusing on early help, —— does it? particularly in schools, and that its plans will allow 70,000 -- does it? parliament have made it clear they will not support no deal. more children a year to have access
to specialist mental health care at the moment, no deal is off the in the next few years. table. even with an extension to sophie hutchinson, bbc news. june 30, we are almost certainly going to have european elections in the uk which would allow for a further extension. i think the question tonight is where the eu is going to grant a longer extension or if it's going to say we want to go back to this process again at the end ofjune. but by that stage, the uk will have already had to have had i'm ross atkins with outside source, we are live european elections. if it has not, here and bbc news. our lead story is it is not going to be able to remain brexit. theresa may has made her pitch to european leaders after the 30th of june. it is not going to be able to remain after the 30th ofjune. that is where the challenges tonight. you for another extension to the brexit process, the uk is currently due to leave the eu on friday. will be aware some conservative mps we await that use decision. we will be live at that brussels summit in a in westminster have threatened be disruptive if there is a long few minutes' time, but we must turn extension. the european union is clearly worried about that. do you to undoubtedly the most shared story today. think it is a real possibility the astronomers have released the first ever image of a black hole. uk could be disrupted?” this was the moment. i never believed that this black think it is a real possibility the uk could be disrupted? i don't hole was as big as people side. personally. for the last two years until we saw... under article 50, the uk has been in that. the same situation. the uk has been this is the nucleus of the galaxy
m 87, and this is the anything but disruptive for the uk's actually moved out of the blocking first—ever image of black hole. minority it had in the council on applause budget issues, uncertain free movement issues, it was actually the here it is. uk part of that minority. for the this is thought to be one last two years, the uk has of the largest black holes in the entire universe — democratically clearly it is not a0 billion km across. disrupting eu business. iwould not the halo here is super—heated gas see anything changing that if we have a longer extension now, although i can understand from the falling into the void. european side their concern about at the centre, of course it. i don't think past evidence it's completely dark — a black hole is an incredibly dense really suggests that this is actually what is going to happen. area of space — it has a gravitational pull dan dalton, thank you very much for so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape from it. here's the lead scientist again. joining us. we appreciate it. thank you very much for watching. it feels like we're looking at the gates of hell, at the end of and time. if you have any questions about brexit, will have chris morris and the event horizon, the point of no return. christian frazier. a lot of time on that is awe—inspiring, to me at least. brexit. not just but also important for physics. christian frazier. a lot of time on brexit. notjust doing brexit, though. in a few minutes, we'll talk for a long time black holes have mainly been studied in theory — about israel. benjamin netanyahu set scientists now have a serious amount of observational data to work with, hence the excitement.
for a fifth term as israeli prime minister. more on that in a few as i was saying, obtaining this minutes. sir richard branson says his virgin train business could be image was a huge global effort. "gone from the uk" in months. here's how they did it. that's after its partner stagecoach was barred from three franchises. it was years in the making, absolutely years, tom burridge reports. and they had to push the virgin trains have been running technique of bringing together services from here up to glasgow and information from these different telescopes! manchester since 1997. they had to push the technique it's all set to come to its limit, because they to an end because the two were using a slightly companies behind the venture, virgin shorter way of lengthening that is normally used, and stagecoach — including sir richard branson, they had to bring in new algorithms and processing techniques. the challenge involved cannot be underplayed. who's written a pretty so there are eight radio dishes around the world, that worked in unison to get these data. stinging blog tonight — are in an open dispute with the government. and the reason you needed so many, it's all about pensions. the government says if there's was he basically needed to get a a shortfall over pensions, telescope that was then train companies should pick it the size of the earth, and we can build that, up over the course of a franchise. stagecoach and virgin say that's equivalent to asking them but we to write a blank cheque. and a leaked letter i've seen —— can't build that. tonight shows the pension can make one virtually system across the railway by using different telescopes. is in dire straits. and using an effectively it all matters because the railways a big telescope means we as a whole are under financial can see smaller and smaller pressure, the government's trying details in the night sky. to modernise the tracks, so to be able to resolve this the train companies are trying as an image needed a to bring on new trains and, they say, at the same time big telescope, but they're all kinds of challenges that go with that.
keep the price of your ticket as low as possible. so understanding and measuring when the and it feeds into a broader issue light comes into the different telescopes, precisely knowing the here — who should carry time at which it's being the risk of a franchise? collected, than those should it be the government, data have to be sent toa broadly speaking, or should it be central processing units, and put the train companies? together, to reconstruct an image. and even, one thing i was reading was, you have to take into account the atmosphere above each telescope. 0utside source. we are live in the bbc newsroom. 0ur lead story comes so it's radio data from brussels. that's being collected, by say the water content theresa may has made her pitch the atmosphere. so across these different to european leaders for another sites around the earth, extension to the brexit process. taking data at slightly different times, different atmospheric affects she has left the room and able to so you have to count for that. it's a huge challenge. side whether the uk will leave the you on friday or not. in sudan, thousands of protesters let's go back to brexit, this has are camping outside army headquarters for a fifth day. they‘ re demanding that just come through. angela merkel president 0mar al—bashir, says she determined that brexit must who's been in power not place in relations with britain. for 30 years, resigns. police bosses have ordered so at least the mood music is officers not to intervene against the demonstrators. supportive of the uk's situation. meanwhile, the president's supporters have called for a counter rally. let's get some help with the questions you've been sending in. that is from bbc arabic. question fraser is back with us. chris morrison the reality check in honduras, another tea m chris morrison the reality check team is with us as well, chris i migrant caravan is forming.
almost 1000 people have gathered understand you've been getting some in the city of san pedro sula, detail on how the conversations are from where they plan to travel together to the us. going. that's a journey of more than 4,000 km. yeah, what's happening now is each thousands of migrants who made their way north with previous caravans remain of the individual eu leaders is making their speech inside the room, stranded on the mexico—us border. speaking for a few minutes each. i understand that most of them, not all of them, most of them have that's from bbc mundo. these images argued in favour of a longer extension toward the end of this year, possibly into next year. the germans, the dutch, the portuguese, from taiwanese tv are widely the italians, the checks among them. watched. a woman there was found to have four crucially, the french president live bees living inside her eye. emmanuel has not spoken yet, they're about four millimetres long obviously he's one of the leading and known as sweat bees voices saying what is the point of because they drink sweat and tears. a gust of wind blew the bees this longer extension, wouldn't a into the woman's eye shorter extension put more pressure whilst she was gardening. she's expected to make on the uk to come up with a a full recovery. solution? one or two others i've been talking to kristian about this, have also spoken out in favour of while we focus on whether the eu that shorter extension. we grants a brexit extention, understand the austrian chancellor among them. so opinion is divided, keep this in mind from and don't forget there are 27 of the bbc‘s rob watson. he asks... them in there. they all want their four minutes each, and we think they arejust over four minutes each, and we think they are just over halfway through that there's no guarantee that more time first round. then they've got to
have a bit of a debate about it. so will fix the core problem — this could go on for sometime. a mac it's quite clear, there's a that theresa may can't get her disagreement between the french and brexit deal through parliament. here's the prime minister today. german camps. they will have to take we could actually have been outside it outside the room and resolve that. you make eu summits usually the european union now if we had managed to get the deal through, and get results when the french and the i'm continuing to work to ensure we germans are on the same page. at the moment it doesn't appear that they can deliver brexit and can do that are. and we've seen some pretty ina way can deliver brexit and can do that in a way that works with people tough rhetoric from emmanuel macron across this country. coming into this meeting over the and this is the brexit secretary. last few days. both from him in it is parliament that is refusing to public, and from officials and private. the key thing though is what he says when he's inside that actually honour the referendum result, and the reason we have to go room, those 27 leaders sitting back... we have a right to leave on around on their own, and actually discussing what's going to happen. the 22nd of may. we had that around on their own, and actually discussing what's going to happenlj discussing what's going to happen.” suppose when it comes to the extension, you have to decide what agreement in the last cancel. we you want from the extension, maybe reason with a go back today is not that's where the disagreement is posedif that's where the disagreement is posed if you want to ratify the because the prime minister, is because the prime minister, is because parliament once again agreement, keep the pressure on them, they may go short. if you refused to vote for the withdrawal agreement. —— it is not because. think that this is a political process, and an anomaly in the political process, then you let that play out over the course of the year, and maybe who knows further the bbc‘s political editor... that, maybe you can get to the uk side to revolt articles this will get 50, or our second referendum.
there are those who think actually a of course those brexiteers found longer extension in a strange way theresa may's version of brexit unacceptable. puts more pressure on the uk, and then there's this point. because it demeans it says too many people who support a tougher form of brexit, look, you're in danger here of losing the whole thing, because the longer this goes on, the more other people have a chance to come and laura highlights the fact that at the moment commit does not quite forward and put forward alternate look like that. let's try and solutions. let's get into some of understand with that process is. the questions that have come into alex foresight is labour this firm you. linda watching on the bbc news westminster. —— alex forsyth. channel says how much is a long extension bridge across the uk? that isa extension bridge across the uk? that is a very tricky want to take on, but can we say there's a cost to the conversations going on for sometime now and senior members of labour's extension? well, don't forget if we shadow cabinet met with some left on the original schedule on the government ministers yesterday. they 29th of march, the way we would've done that is under the prime said there was no break yet but minister's deal. if we left with her deal, by now we'd be in this 21 those conversations continue to month transition period, in which mark. both sides have insisted they pretty much all the rules and are taking these processes regulations and the costs would've seriously. they are trying to see stayed the same. so you could argue some common ground. we know there at the moment, that instead of being
in transition, this extension means we are paying to be full members, are still substantial differences between the two parties. not least rather than being we are paying to be full members, ratherthan being in we are paying to be full members, rather than being in this transition what the uk cosmic future a state. i suspect there will be relationship with you should look like. whether we should stay in a some slight differences in the financial payment, but customs union, keeping very close they will be fairly small. only if economic ties with the eu, and we had left with no deal and said we crucially whatever the people in that room are saying to each other, are not going to pay the budget any if they save think they can find more, we are not paying the divorce some sort of compromise, they have bill that's been agreed. the payments have been substantially then got to sell it to their own different. if we did that, then parties and we know there is a lot we've heard very clearly from the of unhappiness on labour and on the re st of we've heard very clearly from the rest of the eu, the only way we are conservative side, and the fact that going to start trade talks as if you the pairor come to an agreement on three conservative side, and the fact that things. we further before. the the pair or even talking. the fact divorce bill, citizens' rights, and talks or even ongoing, assigned cup the irish border. so i'm not sure arises far off. is there a sign of there's a massive financial implication of going for a longer one way or the other? mps not extension at this stage. i'm going tojump in, extension at this stage. i'm going cutting as many bricks as they to jump in, because extension at this stage. i'm going tojump in, because this is interesting, just coming through on normally would do. that presumably cannot go on indefinitely. everybody the newswires here. this one is excepting a fact this is a pretty extraordinary time, and whatever saying... now that is incredibly happens in brussels, there's going to be lots of legislation that has to be lots of legislation that has to be lots of legislation that has strong language. yeah, and it was
to be put through parliament pretty quickly. number ten's ambition assumed to bring back some sort of brexit deal and get mps to agree to taken when it came into the building it before the uk has to take part in tonight. talking about a european those european part of entry renaissance and the where they've elections on may 22, but there's a got to do —— work they've got to do. he was elected on that premise as whole raft of legislation they have well about the european reform that was required. what he doesn't want to worry about. mps being kept on a is for brexit to consume those long finger. i spoke to one today conversations, as it has done, up saying they don't know what they are until this point. it suffocates a lot of the talk within the european doing. everything feels very union. everyone here tonight from uncertain and all eyes are on brussels to see what happens there, all these countries are here to talk and how it might affect what happens specifically about brexit, and here in the next few days. alex, they're all sorts of issues about thank you for the update. we will you know, the debt problem europe, turn away from brexit and talk about migration, you know, the rise of populism across the europe, they need to get to grips with. they do wa nt to need to get to grips with. they do want to be talking about this issue israel. incessa ntly, want to be talking about this issue incessantly, but then some would say that's exactly why we need this this time yesterday, benjamin netanyahu's main rival longer extension. because angela was claiming victory. merkel swords, we are going from crisis to crisis to crisis every today, mr netanyahu is preparing month, and what they want to do is to begin a fifth term get out of that cycle, they wanted as israel's prime minister. to be as short as possible as she he will become the longest serving prime minister in israel's history. said, but we wanted to be long as the results became enough to restore some calm and some sense to the debate here europe. so
clear, there was a kiss for his wife and a speech thatis sense to the debate here europe. so that is i think part of the for his supporters. disagreement between the two sides. just in the last minute we've got translation: i want to thank you chris... will make the 27 leaders from the bottom of my heart. you brought an amazing, almost bringing them here, go on. we've only got a few seconds, but if inconceivable, achievement. it is labour and the conservatives cut a almost unimaginable in the face of deal, a lot of viewers are asking with the eu then have to renegotiate hostile media that the party has with the eu then have to renegotiate with the eu then have to renegotiate with the uk before anything could be actually drawn dramatically. agreed. well if they cut a deal, it's really to do with the political the man who'd claimed victory was benny gantz — declaration on the future a former senior military man. relationship, the eu has made clear he formed the blue and white coalition in february with a centrist party. that the withdrawal agreement the he did well — but not well enough. terms of divorce and i could to change. in all of the discussion this is how it looks to be shaping we've seen, can it be a customs up. blue and white union, it's about looking at the is expected to get the same number future relationship. the words of of seats as mr netanyahu's likud. likud's right—wing allies mean that nonbinding political declaration could change the they can form a coalition together. here's benny gantz speaking. withdrawal agreement itself, no. both of you, thank you very much indeed. i hope you have some snacks, it will be a long evening. we will translation: i reiterate that this keep you posted, see you soon. isa translation: i reiterate that this is a historic achievement. this never been such a large significant party with so many good people built
in so little time. the people speak hello. high—pressure is set to to us. the people seek another way dominate our weather forecast for and we are going to provide it to the next ten days. at least. it does them. hold the rudder very steady in terms the bbc‘s lyse doucet of the conditions across the uk. at from jerusalem. the moment, it's also locking into it's an extraordinary achievement for both of them. for benjamin place some unseasonably chilly air. this height centred across candidate be a, if you follow the isobars back netanyahu, for both of them. for benjamin neta nyahu, who for both of them. for benjamin netanyahu, who increased likud's around her, pumps all the way into strength the israeli parliament, airfrom the arctic. despite fact he's got three possible around her, pumps all the way into air from the arctic. it drags it across europe, and then feeds it indictments for corruption and fraud into the uk on a chilly easterly looming over him. and if ordinary breeze. as you can see, even through the end of the week, and into the achievement for benny gantz. years weekend, that air is locked firmly are guarded is the toughest challenger to benjamin that and in place. milder conditions out west yahooin challenger to benjamin that and yahoo in the last decade. in in the atlantic. so our outlook for elections, as in sport, there can the coming days, a chilly one. a chilly start to thursday after clear only be one winner. in israel's skies overnight, early widespread political system, it is the frost, some decent sunshine to come strongest party as the leader who through the course of the day. always more cloud along with those will get the first crack at trying north sea coasts. more clout in to form a government. and that looks general i think for northern set to be benjamin netanyahu, given ireland, and for the northeast of scotland. could see a few sharpish the array of right—wing and religious parties who are more of showers here through thursday afternoon. just 7—8d along the north his natural allies.
sea coast, perhaps up to 12—13. best i will speak to you in a couple of minutes' time. of any sunshine for the northeast of scotland. could see a few sharpish hours here through thursday afternoon. just 7—8d along the north sea coast, perhaps up to 12—13. best of any sunshine further west. as we good evening. move through thursday evening over night into friday, well, gradually with some chilly days and frosty we start to build up a little bit nights here at home this week, more cloud. so still a relatively you might think it doesn't chilly evening, but overnight, if anything, the temperature's coming feel very springlike. up anything, the temperature's coming up little in contrast to thursday but that is nothing compared with the winter weather morning. for southern england for still gripping parts of the usa. wales, and for northern ireland, you can see on the satellite because... a chance of rust across picture this cloud moving northern england, and parts of across the rocky mountains. scotland. here though then, the best a storm system sliding to the central plains of the sunshine to be found on of the usa, and deepening. friday. further south, and west, a an unusually deep disappointingly great day. just like winds, nothing to turn the cloud area of low pressure. over. underneath that plank of very strong winds blowing cloud, really chilly phil. highs of around, gales in places. and as you can see, some snow just 8—9d. top ten church league on the northern flank. so a combination of gales and heavy snow will give blizzards temperature 11 or 12. so, when will across the northern rockies. things start to move on? definitely not through the weekend. a lot of in the northern plains fine weather to be found, yes, but and the upper midwest. 30—60 cm of snow is likely. still seeing that high and still that will cause power cuts and major travel disruption. sitting very much the same position. severe thunderstorms for parts soafair of nebraska and kansas. sitting very much the same position.
meanwhile, down to the south, so a fair story, a friend tries to strong winds combining with squeeze into the west on saturday, hot, dry weather to give but to very little avail, and if the potential for wildfires. this whole storm system lumbers anything on saturday, saturday similarto anything on saturday, saturday similar to friday in terms of eastwards as we head towards the end temperatures, and the picture, the towards the end of the week. north more cloud further south. and along this frontal system here, we are likely to see sunday in general, more cloud for some showers and thunderstorms all as the front does try to squeeze drifting towards the southeast of the usa, including close ina all as the front does try to squeeze in a little more to the west, to augusta, where the masters golf is getting under way. perhaps a little rain for the southwest and for northern ireland. now to south america, a little drizzle after some thicker there has been some severe flooding in rio dejaneiro in brazil. cloud elsewhere. definitely we've had a line of wet weather, disappointing temperatures on sunday. so it doesn't look too some particularly intense downpours appealing, does a? but bear with me, here over the last couple of days. because let's push forward ahead now and the effect... into the week before easter, and well, the effects let's watch the high. it starts to have looks like this. be orientated self, it starts to some major disruption and sink further south, and on the some loss of life as well. southern flank, we dip into air from it's reported that rio dejaneiro further south in europe, and that saw over 300 mm of rain looks quite promising for us than it in the space ofjust 2a hours, by the end of the week ahead, and by way more than the average the time we get to easter weekend. by the time we get to easter weekend. by the time we get to tuesday — for the whole of april wednesday next week, we have warmer in an ordinary year. air in the southern half of the uk, now, the wettest of the weather and the second half of the week, is sliding northeastwards. still very wet across the northern that warmer air should transfer all half of brazil and back westwards towards colombia, the way north, we should be talking
but for rio itself, as you can see, largely dry through tomorrow about average, or even above average with some spells of sunshine amateurs by the time we get to and temperatures up to 30 degrees. easter weekend. perhaps even up to now from rain, back to snow. 18 degrees in the southeast of and this is europe. england for good friday. the story this is finland. does look a little bit more u nsettled, does look a little bit more unsettled, perhaps though, for the we've seen some significant snow first half of the easter weekend, here over the last couple of days. with an increasing risk of showers. we've had a little area if anything though high—pressure may of low—pressure that's developed, has been spinning around, return from easter saturday onwards, feeding snow persistently into this part of scandinavia. making for a dryer story once again. but that low is now retreating, it will just and high—pressure is making for a dryer story once again. it willjust depend on how that high building its way in. states, very much as i has done in recent days, whether we do see the so the weather here drying up a little bit during temperatures dip away a little once the next couple of days. but as this high builds in, again. we've got some pretty cool air filtering southwards across europe. a lot of cloud as well. so for germany, into poland, rather cloudy conditions on thursday. maybe the odd snow flurry, and temperatures in berlinjust 6 degrees. meanwhile, it stays very unsettled for the eastern side of the mediterranean, with some heavy showers and thunderstorms. back home, pretty quiet for the next few days but rather chilly by day, with some frosty nights as well. plenty more details on the uk weather coming up in half an hour.
