boris johnson speech what do you see is the main takeaways. i think he left delegates a little bit puzzled because his speech was widely anticipated to be a bid for the leadership but that hasn't really happened and it's clear form he did talk quite a lot about conservative values it was quite a wide ranging speech he tackled security and powers with the police he tackled how the ownership and tax codes so really about the conservative belief system and he also tech gold bricks and of course this is what people were really waiting for how far would he go to to criticize prime minister resigned to check us plan which is have plan of how the e.u. should be left and he said it's time to chop check us on the other hand though he did not really make you feel bad for a leadership he said to reason they should be supported albeit in the old so not in
a new checklist plan but in the old original and in is thinking more bold plan to leave the e.u. on more clear and hard you mentioned his views on brands that they're actually let's hear what he had to say in his own words and then bear going to like to get your reaction there i. think what we could do if we had a free trade deals. and that is why it is so sad and so desperately wrong that we are preparing to agree terms with brussels that would make it much more difficult if not impossible to do such deals and that's why it was such a mistake of us to is industry the entire economy would be exposed perpetually to regulations that might have been expressed the design at the behest of foreign competitors they ping whatever they want by the wall those who have been at least considered by brussels in the last few years all this nonsense we would have to implement with no ability to change or resist
that is not pragmatic that is not a compromise. he's dangerous and unstable politically economically my fellow conservatives this is not democracy. that is not what we voted for. boris johnson very clearly they are calling for a bolder brags that fear good what does this mean for prime minister theresa may. well it really lays open the pressure that she's on the from a lot in her party boris johnson got a lot of applause it's really what many people in the party base wanted to hear they recall the e.u. as on the elected throughout crissy as undemocratic and to foster the u.k. can sever the ties with the and the clearer they can do it the more applause they
will give the reason there are others also here the conservative party conference who want a second referendum want to in effect reverse breck's it and these are the two opposite poles that are trying to influence reason and she has to make a decision she has to decide what's right well not just for the party but really for the country and we know that that clock is ticking on bragg's at just under six months away now they are going to pass with the latest from birmingham thank you. soccer star christian hernando was being sued in the united states by a woman who claims that the portuguese player raped her in two thousand and nine she says the assault occurred in her knowledge as penthouse suite in the las vegas palms hotel the woman bringing the case says that the player quote or rather that his fixers she calls them tricked her into keeping quiet for payment of three hundred seventy five thousand dollars plus vegas police confirm that they have
