insisted the current compromise being discussed is a sellout grex it be watered down and. right now we're headed for sort of a halt in the whole file no man's land customs union membership that could go on for who knows how long and this is not what people voted for. as britain and the e.u. continue negotiations in brussels information leaking out of the talks point to britain remaining in the customs union after brock's it until a permanent trade agreement is hammered out customs checks would be avoided on the border between arlin and northern ireland a controversial concession to the e.u. brics that supporters and teresa mayes government fear could take years to reach a long term trade deal making an emergency compromise permanent the prax it minister says that should not happen. what we can do is see the united kingdom look to involve the back door to customs union and union arrangement

a large dinner crowd but anyway tallahassee is one thing all the counties between here and we're talking about one hundred eighty kilometers until we are hitting the coals all the counties all this area between here and those and the coast where hurricane michael hits at the worst are still impact that thousands without power without gas without anything basically they're lining up in front of trucks. to get handouts food the military sending out m r e's is that or is that right so the situation is is everything but flying in those inland counties all right steffen and so what's the federal government's plan to help. well of course the federal government has activated see mind she might has put all its punch in helping florida flirty ends. in land as well as at the coast of course
however that is a friend of the fim eyes the federal emergency management agency this is a huge effort at us with a large bureaucracy and we're talking about millions and millions and tall means of materials being delivered from point a to point b. and point b. and a they're quite hard to get it because you have to remember there is still there are still. humongous obstacles from traveling here because trees are still down power lines are still down situation is not not safe at all the red cross for example just today is delivering the billions of meals to their shelters which they have set up all over florida where people are hurting the most but this is a major undertaking ian said all right well as local government officials are they really trying their best however it is with the people who make that really work. stephanie amongst reporting for us from tallahassee florida thank you.
football now and germany have slammed two defeats in the nation's league losing three in the away two rivals the netherlands in an incipit display fergal fan dake open the scoring after thirty minutes heading home from close range two late goals from the netherlands then sealed a deserved victory germany have now scored only four times in their last six games leaving coach him live and defer the pressure off to a poor both cup. correspondent joins me now from outside the stadium in amsterdam pascal a well deserved win for the dutch tonight. absolutely i mean the result says everything three no that's a shocker to be honest no one would have expected that he had of the game germany just looked very poor sloppy in the back and also up front where they missed many clear chances they couldn't avoid counterattacks they can defend set pieces a very poor display by the germany team against
a dutch side which we have to say doesn't really have many work up players in their squad they're not the force they once were but still they managed to fully deserve win against a varying germany side ok pascal what does this mean for germany coach with him is he's job now under threat. but more than ever i would say judge germany because you're human if had to explain himself after the world cup of course he said he wanted to regain trust and he wanted to get back to winning ways but it just didn't work out and there are many critics in germany questioning him just recently all the of this week former germany captain michael ballack came out and you speak to the dalai exclusive exclusively saying he's surprised that germany coach you know him if still has a job so there are many critics in germany questioning him on the other hand though the german if they and all the players so far they are still backing him they're still supporting him and but of course he is definitely on the pressure more than
ever ok pascal very quickly before you go germany makes face champions bronze that's on tuesday how tough that game going to be. but that will be an interesting game this one here in amsterdam this was just an appetizer next tuesday against france they would cup winners in paris again and away game a really tough challenge for germany because you often live and stuff really exciting to see how this pans out. and reporting they are watching the diving is life on the island station for moment back at the top be out. take it personally you anything with a little wonderful stories make the game so special. treat. people more than football.
