2:02 pm
for all that they have to we were told that we had a binary choice between the model of norway or the model of canada that we could not have a bespoke deal which the outline political declaration sense housing arrangement that is better for our country than both of these a more ambitious free trade agreement than the e.u. has with any other country. let's bring in our correspondents barbara vessel was in london max of money is in brussels good to see you both again barbara let's start with you we've seen a flurry of resignations today most notably the braggs it minister dominic robb what does this mean for theresa me. it means that she is in fact under tremendous pressure and that the hard line breaks tears in her own party might be leaving her and do searching her because a rumor has it that the r g y so-called european research group which is the
2:03 pm
organization so so to speak the club off their heartbreaks to cheers is just at this moment meeting in parliament and figuring out what they want to do and there's also rumor that jacob riis mark is ready to throw down the gauntlet stood to reason may and sort of say let me do it or at least do step aside so things are moving fast here and they are moving against the prime minister a lot of drama unfolding there in london today barbara no german chancellor here and america has commented on this deal this morning let's take a listen to what she had to say. the we must now check whether the twenty seven member states can support what's been wiped out. we have a great deal of faith in me said on you but there's lots of pages we'll have to analyze them and discuss them with our parliament but the work is ongoing but i'm
2:04 pm
glad we reached the stage yesterday all. sounding cautiously optimistic there max that brings us to you in brussels what does the way forward look like for the e.u. twenty seven now. what i'm going to just said is very typical of the approach that the e.u. seems to have keep calm and carry on but i'm going to michael also said this she said that she said this on no reason to renegotiate what they already had here because the british cabinet approved that and the e.u. approved it so this was an implicit reaction to what is happening in london but if you do keep calm and carry on then the plan is that the e.u. member states are going to back and said will now deal with this well analyze this we do know that not everybody will be happy with all of the parts that are in there for example the lack of the fisheries would probably not go down well with the french and then as of next week they will start preparing a political agreement that deals with the future relationship between the e.u.
2:05 pm
and the u.k. and all that works out after some frantic work then there will be e.u. bragg's it summit on the twenty fifth of november most likely here in brussels and after that it's up to the u.k. parliament we'll have to see if we get to those steps next because as we said theresa may facing a lot of opposition at home arch breaks a tear conservative party member take a priest was one of the m.p.'s who was challenging the prime minister in parliament in the house of commons let's listen to what he said earlier my role i don't have a friend and she's on question the owner said we would leave the customs union. the next two says otherwise my right on friend said that she would maintain the integrity of the united kingdom the whole procedure called says otherwise my right on the friend said we would be out of the jurisdiction of the orkin court of justice on school one hundred some to fall says otherwise i was on my right over
2:06 pm
the french was what i write only for dollars no longer match should i don't write to my right on befriend the member of. west. as we said jacob chief brags a tear there are you mentioned already that a senior euro skeptic conservative lawmakers are meeting right now we are seeing one report that jacob we smog might be putting in a letter of no confidence in the prime minister barbara we're seeing this leadership challenge ken theresa may hold on here. if her own party tells her that it doesn't want her anymore as a leader if the confidence is if she's voted down within her own party if there is a no confidence vote within the conservatives no i mean then she's gone and it's over for her and the question now is will reduce mons who sort of the leading figure of the hard line here is and who is somebody who'll can really kill
2:07 pm
political opponent was politeness as we have heard and will he sort of step up and say let me be the leader of the party for a long time four months or of the summer in particular he was sort of slated as being the man off the future who could sort of really galvanize the party and have support and many people in the public and many inside the party like him as a new leader of course the people who are the pro europeans and and those who are really who think that all this is going too far they're against three smart but he is certainly somebody who could try and put a temper as leadership challenge i would just have to wait whether it happens it's not going to last long till they emerge from palm and behind us and let us know what their plans are all right so cabinet ministers have resigned we could be seeing a leadership leadership challenge among the tories that max coming to you if this deal falls apart what does that you do next. that's
2:08 pm
a good question but i think the next steps are not necessarily here in brussels with the european union because if this deal falls apart most likely the reason may falls apart as well and then it depends who will be the next prime minister of the united kingdom what his or her position is and then we can see further i mean the e.u. has been known to put together last minute deals and make them work so they'd certainly be open for anything that the u.k. has to offer as long as it avoids a no deal scenario and as long as it keeps within the red lines of what the u. once for example the integrity of the european single market but that's where the problem is if you have somebody like rees mogg as the next prime minister he's certainly not going to care much for what reason may has negotiated earlier and then of course the scenario of no deal bragg's and so a crash in this case becomes pretty likely. our correspondent max housman and barbara basal again thank you both. now let's catch up on some
