6:01 pm
i'm phil gayle welcome to the program. british prime minister theresa may is in the midst of one of the most challenging days of her political career she's seeking cabinet backing for her draft deal for the u.k.'s departure from the european union but senior ministers and britain's parliaments are deeply divided last night said deal beats between the government and brussels is under criticism the prime minister faced and paste in a rowdy parliamentary question and answer session on the leader of the opposition's was just one of the voices challenging mrs may over the deal and the meeting is now under way and running over. last night the usually breaks it negotiates a report to be told the twenty seven european ambassadors the u.k. must align their rules but the e.u. will retrain all the controls is that
6:02 pm
a fair summary of the prime minister's deal prime minister can i say to the right honorable gentleman as i have said all along throughout these negotiations what we are doing is negotiation a good deal for the united kingdom we're not going to say. we're not going to see you know a deal that delivers on the face of the british people that takes but control of our money to warrant the orders that he shows we need for common fisheries policy we need a customs union we need to come in like a cultural policy we pretend that we protect jobs we protect security and we protect the integrity of the united kingdom you get more from berga to mass in london welcome back it was just the opposition leader jeremy corbett accusing the prime minister of caving in to brussels what sort of time did you have to prime minister's questions today. not surprisingly not a very easy time it's really difficult for the reason i was made to say any deal really with the e.u. because for those people in the house of commons who are advocating to remain
6:03 pm
within the e.u. any concession that's reserved made makes will not be as good as what britain has now basically staying within the e.u. and for those who are advocating for gretz as well they are very afraid if that's the reason may is negotiated we're in the process of negotiating something that's in their point of view too close to the e.u. that she makes to learn to come sanctions she could see it as she wants to avoid a really hard crash and no deal which would be terrible for the british economy and three's a maze under a lot of pressure from british business to avoid any cost so it's not an easy time at all in the house of commons and also not with the cabinet this talk about the cabinet she was having meetings with them across the night in the morning. meeting happening now and has run over what are we hearing. well i think we haven't had any resignation so far as far as i'm aware sue that's
6:04 pm
a positive sign for two reason may she will hope that she will have the cabinet on board one way of thinking about it is here in the u.k. that there is some speculation that maybe the cabinet is going to be behind reason may because they don't want to be seen you know us as the ones to thwart the deal and that they were maybe hoping that in parliament it could be over town so that it's not up to the cabinet to do the job and to work through anything into the span and really create enormous difficulty for tourism a but it's going to be in parliament that's one way of thinking and that's only speculation we are really awaiting for this cabinet meeting to be over and for to resume to make a statement just after that within the next hour of. course the biggest stumbling block in this process has been uncertainty over the border between north and the island which is part of the u.k. and therefore leaving the irish republic which is
6:05 pm
a separate country and remaining what do we learn about what this deal says about bode. well the border is really the crucial issue and we have to really wait for the details of what people in northern ireland are fearing mostly the people who is helping to these amaze government they are fearing that there would be a separate status for northern nodded and they didn't want to accept that whatsoever says they are already very skeptical the noises that we're hearing from them so that makes it more difficult to reason may what's reason may to sell this in parliament so a lot of skepticism in northern ireland but it would have to wait for the exact details to come out to get mass in london thank you. to israel now where the defense minister avigdor lieberman has resigned over the latest ceasefire with the palestinian militant group hamas the truce was agreed to
6:06 pm
end the deadly escalation in cross border violence that followed an israeli raid in gaza one israeli officer and seven palestinians were killed in the fighting over the weekend the fisherman in gaza was killed today avigdor lieberman was one of the most hawkish members of the israeli government and had demanded a much tougher response to palestinian rocket fire. mushfiqur. the cease fire combined with a deal with hamas is a surrender to terror. there's no other way of defining it no other meaning than to surrender to terror. now having to lieberman's resignation has rocked israeli politics i'm to could even trigger early elections now there is even doubt about whether the ceasefire will hold. in jerusalem tony kraemer updated us about reports that a fisherman had been killed by israeli fire today. well palestinian house officials
6:07 pm
are saying it's a twenty year old man he is a fisherman and some conflicting oppose whether you was killed at sea near the fence to israel the israeli army says he was approaching the fence music keen this is near the beach and despite giving out warning shots as they say here both being shot at according to their rules off and it doesn't seem at the moment at least at this would derail this calm tense calm you have to say of course it's always tense in a few days after what happened in the past couple of days but hamas and other militant groups at the moment are more preoccupied of saying that they having set new rules of engagement they are seeing this also as a victory having fired over four hundred rockets into israeli communities and they even go as far as saying that they brought down the defense minister and possibly even the cabinets of course this is deflecting
6:08 pm
