britain crashing out of the european union breaks it with no deal that outcome is not even supposed to be an option but it's looking more likely by the day well how bad could that be for britain we don't know but we do know the u.k. foreign secretary says no deal would be a mistake and there's guidelines for everyone there being called survival plan i'm burnt off in berlin this is the day. poppy caution about a deal because we haven't reached anything anything we have a duty as a responsible government to plan for everything. whether it's trade security maybe i shouldn't use it seems u.k. citizens in europe i mean it really would be a catastrophic ending all of these negotiations that we've seen all reach a deal let me be clear about this it is not what we want and it's not what we
expect. we must be ready. also coming up tonight more tit for tat tariffs between the u.s. and china and who is taking the hit ask the people in wichita kansas. we're hearing from companies they they may have to lay off people they can only have their or you know the head on their profit margins for so long and then they'll not be competitive competitive they can't they can't sell they have to lay off. or we begin the day with preparations in britain for life after brags that this iconic british sign from one nine hundred thirty nine which suddenly seems more relevant than ever in just a seven months britain is scheduled to officially leave the european union when the british approved bright sit in a referendum two years ago lawmakers insisted that a divorce with no deal was out of the question for a minister to resume a spent months repeating her mantra breaks it means breaks it when she's not doing
that anymore today the u.k. government began issuing guidelines for citizens and businesses on how to deal with an option that is not even supposed to be one a bricks it crashed britain's brags it minister dominic rob says that he is still confident in reaching an agreement with the e.u. but that the advice published today explains what will happen if no deal is reached which brings us back to that sign first used when the u.k. was bracing for war now no one is implying that he breaks it crash would be about wife and death the government insists that these new guidelines are meant to show that london is ready for any outcome but if you asked brits to describe these new guidelines you'll hear the words survival plain. the message is loud and clear don't panic britain's prime minister dominic robb emphasised the guidelines issued today a manly a contingency plan for the event of
a new deal something he said is unlikely and i'm confident that a good deal is within all sides that remains our top priority. there remains overriding priority. naturally we've got to consider the alternative possibility that the e.u. doesn't match our ambition and pragmatism that we'll reach a deal let me be clear about this it is not what we want and it's not what we expect but we must be ready to deal rob was at pains to stress that even if there is no deal there will not be chaos in britain's. but despite ongoing negotiations between the twenty seven even member states in the u.k. and no deal scenario could have wide reaching consequences without a trade agreement britain's relationship with the e.u. would be governed by the rules of the world trade association customs chance would be reintroduced which would lead in turn to massive queues along access roads to ports. w.t.r.
rules do not cover and traffic however airplanes would not be permitted to fly from the u.k. into e.u. airspace and vice versa that would have a knock on effect disrupting the delivery of foodstuffs britain imports thirty percent of its produce from the e.u. u.k. supermarkets could feel the pinch rob was eager to allay fears of a food shortage critically important issue so let me assure you that contrie to one of the wall the claims you will still be able to enjoy b.l.t. off the bricks that and there are no plans to deploy the army to maintain food supplies. health care services and the finance sector could also be his citizens living in the european union could lose access to the u.k. bank accounts should recognise that rob is sticking to his daniel tammet mantra adamant that the u.k. is ready for breakfast with or without a deal very much. all right let's pull in our correspondent bob of angel she joins
us tonight from brussels good evening to you barbara you know i read that the european union had already put together its own documents on how to deal with a break sit no deal and now we're hearing that the brits are doing the same so what the e.u. jose makers make of this do they believe that britain is ready for a no brakes deal. at least britain is finally acknowledging that frex it is going to be highly complicated because in brussels so far as there was a general sentiment that the british side completely underestimated what it means the complexity of the issue all these things that concern the supply not only of food but the whole supply chain of industrial production flights access to bank accounts this whole a complex web of modern life is going to be torn apart forcefully if there is no
deal and that is something that is a thought that british the british government nobody really seem to entertain now finally they get into gear to make contingency or to say emergency plans and so brussels of course gets the feeling that yes they are looking at reality now and they might then and the next step may be ready to move again and it's hard to understand the reasoning isn't it if you've always said that breaks it with a new deal is not an option why would you even publish these guidelines to begin with but despite that you've got the u.k. brits and secretary dominic robb saying he's optimistic that a deal will be reached from brussels perspective from where you're city do you think this kind of optimism that we're hearing in london is well founded. optimism is certainly misplaced because from the e.u. perspective what needs to be and what needs to happen is that the british side
needs to move again the reason may has put her latest proposal on the table before the summer and that's the so-called checkers paper is something she cooked up with her cabinet in her country seat checkers and. looked at it and said what she says about friction is traffic customs union and market for goods that is not palatable to us we can do that that is against our rules so it is waiting for further compromises or take britain taking a different tack however nothing is to be seen so really what they're doing when they're meeting each other here and now and negotiations are continuing now in the weekly basis it's just running in circles and so optimism is misplaced at the moment. so what about the likelihood of a new deal. taking place. seen in brussels. the problem with the no deal breaker brand is the timing and the timing works for it
because tourism a has a constant conservative party conference in early october before that she can't make a move because the hard line breaks to is already out for a battle against her if she survives the party conference then she has about six weeks maximum six weeks till the middle end of november to sort of get negotiations in brussels going again make for the compromise and figure out an agreement that is a very very tight time frame almost impossible so the mall in the weeks race down to the end of november the more likely in no deal scenario is and i don't know if you're hungry barbara but you know mr rob do you sure britons that they would continue to enjoy their bacon lettuce and tomatoes sandwiches no matter what would brussels brussels stand in the way of a good british being able to sandwich even in the event of no deal. basically non
bought some of them are even assembled made in northern france and that won't have many anymore after brights it of course and if they have brits don't mind a bit of wilted lettuce and some of the tomatoes and then of course they will continue to have they be o.t. because it will be stuck in trucks. however maybe for britain it's the best idea to go back to the good old british pork pie know that that might be the future of the united kingdom and we know it is all about nostalgia and the times i did this but i don't know how hungry i am anyway just by that i would say thank you and he will in brussels thank you bar. well it happened exactly as expected the us has slapped more tariffs on chinese goods and china responded in kind of this is the second round of tariffs from the trumpet ministration a twenty five percent tariff on sixteen billion dollars worth of imports china's
latest tariffs or aimed at three hundred american fraud. new negotiations couldn't prevent the latest turn of the screw so far the u.s. and china have each imposed import duties on goods worth around fifty billion u.s. dollars now american companies in china are getting on the easy to mid issue that our companies think about is the uncertainty that the conflict brings uncertainty isn't good for business it limits your ability to invest in new developments in a country that impacts your ability to hire new staff u.s. president trump is not just attacking the trade deficit with china he's also fired shots at beijing's industrial policies accusing the chinese government of paying high subsidies to companies in the tech sector like robotics and out official intelligence the sectors hit by tariffs starting to hurt on both sides like at this market in beijing many have stopped ordering agricultural products from the. u.s. because they've become too expensive the new g.-d's also affect items like turbines
and chemicals china's retaliation targets included raw materials like coal and gas us and china two engines of the of the world economy if if if this trade will lead through and. it will slow down will shut down i mean that could be disaster to the world despite strong resistance from within his own country trump is already threatening new sanctions on chinese goods with two hundred billion us dollars taking effect as early as next month. or in the regions of the us where manufacturing in farming depend on chinese demand these tariffs well their economic poison and nowhere is this tariff toxicity greater then in the city of wichita in the state of kansas the brookings institution says no other metro area in the u.s. is be impacted more by the u.s. china trade well alexander phenomenon visited wichita.
handrails and alloys. and good driver own too just a company in wichita that over a wide range of aluminum. over should have been strong decision it's becoming more and more difficult for the brothers to calculate their contracts a big impact for us we're still in about six months. if. we didn't affect our market but we have to be very careful not to project your project let's say in january and then goes up thirty percent by march in your bid is not very good in the morning from her terror of taxes on imports and exports says karen paige c.e.o. and president of kansas global partners for twenty five years she's been working to help local companies to improve their position in global markets now she has to deal with more and more businesses suffering from treat. it we're hearing from
companies that they may have to lay off people they can only absorb you know the head on their profit margins for so long and then they'll not be competitive competitive they can't sell they can't sell they have to lay off. according to a recent analysis which should tell with its focus on aerospace manufacturing and agriculture as more exposed to chinese terrorists than any older us metro area but it's not easy to find business people ready to talk about that some of the meat off camera they don't want to be seen to contradict president in this deeply conservative state for now many manufacturers here say they're holding their own but with one in four dollars in which the us economy coming from exports to tariffs are expected to have a huge impact an estimated twenty thousand jobs are at stake and at the moment it's the farmers who are paying the biggest toll one of them is keith miller at third generation farmer. he's been the rep for the last three years and now he's afraid
of losing china as the market dropped despite the fact that he saw it being doing just fine. her prices that we are receiving any were from a dollar to two dollars less than they was three months ago and it's cause an oscar for her real concern whether we're going to be able to. get those prices back in the near future and we're we're definitely worried about the worth of the income is going to come to the fore nevertheless keith miller still supports. his the firth president fighting for you asked. the farmer that trump can strike a deal with china and most of all hope that this will happen soon. well the trade conflict with china is just one of many possible explosive devices
in u.s. president trump's political minefield two days ago trump's former campaign manager was convicted on eight charges trump's former personal attorney michael cohen surrendered to the f.b.i. and admitted to several counts including bank fraud he also said under oath that trump and ordered him to commit a crime by using campaign funds to impact the outcome of the us presidential election but now the editors of time magazine have released the cover of their latest edition with the two words in deep the image shows the body of presidents from trying to swim in an oval office submerged in water after this week's black tuesday for trump the new time cover speaks to a white house administration inundated with crises some of them an existential threat to the presidency of donald trump. what trump is firing back at the accusation made by his former attorney yesterday on fox news's of fox and friends
he denied any wrongdoing but listen and pay attention to the word most sitting presidents would never a wild across their lips in public seventy six days away from the midterms hard to believe if the democrats take back power do you believe they will try to impeach you. well you know i guess it says something like high crimes and all i don't i don't know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job. i'll tell you what if i ever got impeached i think the market would crash i think everybody would be very poor. because without this thinking you would see that you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse all right going to take the story out of washington our bureau chief alexander phenomenas on the story for us good evening to you alexandra we heard it drop there use the word impeachment extraordinary for a sitting president to do that is he issuing a threat here. well it sounds like a threat like
a warning don't think there are two that are wise you're going to pay the price and that is i would say up trumps usual strategy to tack to bully his critics his opponents to threaten them and to make up stories but this is also a message to the republican voter as to his supporters and the hope to mobilize them to try if them to the polls this prospect that the president may be in the political peril and so he's sending this message saying them you have to vote for me in the midst elections to prevent democratic party from taking over the house because if that happens that's really it's possible that we are a very likely that we are going to see impeachment proceedings starting then and i was there to do this interview it comes on the heels of that plea deal by john's
former attorney michael cohen over hush money. and adult film star over an alleged extramarital so your listeners know what trump had to say about michael koch you directions many many of the deal he made the deal and by the way he pled to two counts and on a crime which nobody understands i watched a number of shows sometimes you get some pretty good information by watching shows . those two counts are even a crime they were in campaign finance. months ago when he pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations among other charges you got strong very saying this is not a crime so what are we supposed to make of this. well the president is arguing that there is no crime because the payments were made to with his own money but that doesn't exonerate team because the rules or the law is quite clear here you have to disclose any come pain expenses whether it's coming from
a complaint fund or from a private account. and then there is attorney general jeff sessions he has watched bank it strong today saying that justice will not be influenced by politics now how significant is this alexander. i think that this is very significant not the fact that once again criticized criticize sessions but the fact that sessions this time hit back normally he would say he wouldn't respond to the president's criticism he would just continue he's work at the justice department so the fact that now he is pushing back it's very significant we have to remind ourselves that sessions was one of the earliest and most high profile supporters of president and he might be now in jeopardy there are some republicans already
talking about that that that the president might fire sessions after that mitt's terms all right of course when alexander phenomenal the storyboards tonight in washington the xander thank you very much. well despite the unprecedented challenges facing the european union and just think of bricks from the u.k. and migration in border control along the mediterranean the e.u. remains one of the world's most sought after clubs in fact countries are waiting in line just for the chance to apply for membership well that includes the former soviet republic of georgia germany's chancellor is visiting georgia and the country's president is presenting his case for joining the e.u. and nato but the west is reluctant to antagonize neighboring russia and today chancellor merkel rejected any fast track membership for georgia. well in the one
visit calls for a more liberal georgian society have been growing louder tbilisi's l.g.b. ji community is spearheading a push back against hate crimes and reactionary politics he. reports. this is the soundtrack for social change in georgia. techno clubs like he'd b.d.c. are part of a movement pushing for bt rights and to ease the country's unusually strict drug laws there islands of freedom in a conservative post soviet society. club culture is growing very fast but. the years to change the mentality of the people who. people like. strange. don't deserve to be part of this society so. change. trying to change that.
dancing became political in may after armed georgian police raided two of to be most renowned clubs coffee gallery and looking for drug dealers in response to what many saw as the heavy handedness of authority as hundreds took to the streets to protest the government and to fight for progressive values by down say. gay rights activists live on video needs that organizes the regular bt night at one of the clubs that was raided he says the community often faces abuse and violence in georgia and that's why they are a key group in the push for a more liberal society to community as well as other groups have enjoyed by c.n. yes a safe space as a space where they can enjoy a very quality freedom. well which is quite lacking outside of the
ng in those club scenes it's very conservative outsides and though the club rates for presenting this threat to the safe environment georgia appears to be at a crossroads between its past and its future but conservative forces including the georgian orthodox church are also very powerful in the country and in recent years several nationalist groups have appeared on the georgian political scene. that she really is a musician and he's also the co-founder of the ultra nationalist movement georgian march which has rallied crowds against migrants and for what he calls traditional family values question he feels georgia is losing its national identity to western liberal values. we want to know why pushing towards why are we rushing towards darkness when we can't see anything. saying georgia is european
country it's absurd this is the caucasus country. at the best that i'm. a candidate from georgia in march will be running in georgia's presidential elections in october but with different groups and generations pulling the country in different directions it will likely take much longer for georgia's future to take shape. well it is being hailed as a giant leap forward for weather forecasting after sixteen years of in terms of planning a new satellite has been sent into orbit to monitor wind patterns around the globe . i begin tonight going to. iraq and the satellite blasted off from the european space agency's spaceport in french guiana it's been named. after the keeper of the winds in. hopes the data collected will
help to more accurately predict extreme weather and climate change which. and back here on earth the day but as always the conversation continues online go find us on twitter either at the news or you can write directly to me you see my handle right t.v. and don't forget to use the hash tag the day and remember whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see the never.
