8:02 pm
know what's been agreed. what we knew about the text is that it's forty pages long and contains all the legal details the terms and conditions on which britain is supposed to leave the european union and on the to the on march twenty ninth off next year and there are of course some particular stumbling blocks one and that was the last point that negotiators from both sides have really been talking about to end sort of wrangling over day and night since the weekend now is of course northern ireland and we don't know the details yet basically the agreement says that britain after the transition period where we have a legal status quo nothing changes after the transition period if then a new relationship was great it was great britain has not been agreed it will stay in the customs union in order not to have a hard border in ireland between northern ireland so that's the main thrust but of
8:03 pm
course the devil is in the details here as we know throughout these lengthy negotiations. mass and london what bob officials talking about there was this is this is become known as the the backstop now the big problem as far as theresa may is concerned is that her premiership depends on support from northern islands democratic unionist who are adamant that the north will be treated in exactly the same way as the rest of the u.k. as we speculate. just what we've heard of this deal sound like it will satisfy. the democratic unionist. i think as barbara says here as well the devil is in the detail what the democratic unionist don't want is any sort of food in between the u.k. main them and know that nod and so any set of stops and customs stops that
8:04 pm
separate northern ireland from the u.k. it's for them on acceptable they also want to have the right to withdraw from the backs of say you have the unilateral right to withdraw from what we speculate this might not be the case it looks like the reason they may have given in on this so in that case it would be unacceptable but we really have to wait until we see the full text and then to we have also official statements for from the d u p who are basically propping up series of maize government and really really does depend on a mass even if this is good news in as much as there is agreement this is just the start of a fresh set of headaches for britain's prime minister because she has to sell it now to cabinet many of whom will look at this scans and then to the parliament. yes and we've already had brett city as speculating a whole thing that cabin that ministers should resign over this and they really

make they have that club that boris johnson for example he was of course the for a foreign secretaries a former foreign secretary if i said this looks like a vassalage to the e.u. says anything that keeps britain very close to the european union like the customs union where then britain's wouldn't be able to do its own traders around the world which is something that him and i was great city is hoping for that this could give britain a competitive advantage towards the e.u. anything that prohibits that is completely unacceptable and if this is to be the case in this deal then they will not go with it and the question where is all the cabinet ministers resigning over this and what's parliament going to say so the labor party also has made signs of them not going to vote this year so it's going to be a really really tough sell for to resume at home for bass in london very small in the strasburg thank you both. the middle east and now militant
