3:02 pm
trap britain in the blocks over it for years and hardline brigadier jacob rhys modest now moving to force me out of office he has requested a vote of no confidence in the british prime minister. we'll get reaction and analysis from our correspondents straight away but let's first listen to prime minister may's defense of the deal in parliament delivering bricks it involves difficult choices for all of us we do not agree on all of those choices but i respect their views and i would like to thank them since is. 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 director ration sent sounds in a range meant that it's better for our country to both of these a more ambitious free trade agreement than the e.u. has with any other country. our correspondents have been following this story all day we have barbara vessel in london and max haas money in brussels good to have
3:03 pm
you both back with us barbara let's start with you because we've been hearing rumors of this all day but now it's confirmed take a priest mog has now submitted a letter of no confidence in the pm he is a hard liner brags of here what does this mean. he's come out from parliament and has been spoken to the press a couple of minutes ago and he confirmed that would start the leadership challenge he said that this is not about himself he was not putting himself forward as the new leader of the tory party and supposedly new prime minister but we know a certain british custom to say the exact opposite from what you mean so in fact he might actually be challenging to reason may end sort of putting his own name out because there is really nobody else who is stepping up to the plate at the moment but things are moving really rapidly it seems clear that she now will have to
3:04 pm
contest this leadership challenge coming from the hard line breaks tears in her own party we don't know yet when it might happen tonight my temperament or no tomorrow she is really really safe and in secure in her job now you know suzumiya what it means when international rescuers set off the call of off mayday mayday no indeed this is it's what we're experiencing here today in london you know barbara she is indeed a facing a stiff challenge not only from take a priest monk but as you said from the break to tears in her own party this is something that was going to be a hurdle for her all along let's listen to what jake a priest marc said to the press. conservative party referendum or which always to conserve. said specifically but we would leave the customs union it did not have any small print saying oh unless we decide to have a backstop it is a permanent customs union that is harder to leave the leaving your opinion on of
3:05 pm
course fifty. barbara this is an argument we were hearing in parliament all day that this is not pregnant this is a failure we've seen theresa may survive other crisis but we're seeing now a letter of no confidence and also big resignations today dominic robb the the brags that minister can she really survive all of this. what's even worse than the resignation of done many for obviously for the future is that michael god of the cabinet minister who is at the moment responsible for agriculture and who is one of the few remaining big beasts of the tory party somebody was experience and influence in the party that he declined to take up the job off dominic dominic grab a he took a few hours to think about it after it had been offered to him and then he said thank you but no thank you he does not want to be responsible for the mess he does not want to secure fice himself on the altar off trees amazing breaks
3:06 pm
a deal and that goes to show that even the support she nominally seemed to have last night in cabinet isn't really there seems to be crumbling by the minute really and that has a lot of people concerned there in london but also likely in brussels that brings it to max and brings us to you max now what reactions are we seeing there. and sort of a half shade half sun as you can see behind me on the commission building in brussels meaning they're happy that they've got a they've got to agree on something on that withdrawal agreement but of course people are worried here about what's happening in london because they think they might lose the prime minister they negotiated all this with they already lost the minister they negotiated all this with so the strategy for now seems to be to be a counterweight to london where things are very fast moving and here they're trying to keep it more or less slow and just keep on keeping on with the process the process that they've outlined earlier which is that now the member states are checking the withdrawal agreement not all of them are happy with what's in there
3:07 pm
there might be some minor changes to it going forward forward in the next days and as you know this agreement has five hundred eighty five pages so it will take them a while to pore over this next week then they want to go forward with the political agreement which is about the future relationship the relationship will see some years down the road probably more than two years by the way and then the sherpas those are the people who do the hard work on the documents in the wording and everything will finalize that thursday in the week to prepare the summit which will follow if everything goes according to plan on sunday the twenty fifth of november and that's where they would agree on you know the final versions of this send it over to london and say all right u.k. parliament it's up to you that might be fun all right so they're continuing on with business there in brussels maxine of this morning we saw michelle banya the chief you negotiator from bragg's that symbolically handing over this document to to the
3:08 pm
council president donald truss they both sounded cautiously optimistic we also heard for the german chancellor earlier let's listen what she had to say about the steel. the we must now check whether the twenty seven member states can support what's been worked out. or. we have a great deal of faith in me said daniel but there's lots of pages we'll have to analyze the ment discuss them with our parliament our vote on the work is ongoing but i'm glad we reached the stage yesterday although some acts we heard at the chance are saying i'm glad we've reached this stage it's also a good draft a deal from the u.s. perspective. it's what was possible it seems because at the end it was all about. the border between northern ireland or an island or the lack of that border meaning to keep it border free and that's why they needed a backstop
3:09 pm
a sort of an insurance policy for the future that there wouldn't be any border between northern ireland which is part of the k. and the republic of ireland which of course is part of the european union but you don't want i'm going to america also said something else and it's sort of an implicit reaction to what is happening in london where some of the members of the parliament there said they needed to renegotiate what was on the table and are going to mexico said why should we really go sheet i don't see any reason we have an agreement that was agreed on by the cabinet of theresa may the prime minister of the u.k. and by the chief negotiator of the european union so this is what will we'll stick with basically she's answering she's she's she's being the counter which she says this is our procedure we're going to stick to it and that's very much cholesky by the way that's the way she does politics but i want to pick up on one of the points the next guest talked about there which is the question of the irish border which is one that is really held up any possibility of a deal a deal
3:10 pm
a negotiation of the last two years we heard jeremy corbyn the labor leader saying earlier in parliament this draft deal essentially draws a border down the irish sea is he right. yes and no of course there will this is not explicitly mentioned in the paper anymore because the british side insisted upon that the boarding had to disappear that we could not talk about that bought of course there still is it difference between the two parts between mainland england between great britain and northern ireland as a region because northern island is supposed to be kept closer to european regulation after transition period is over and when this assumes union period kicks in because then you really would need no border controls towards the republic of ireland who will still be a member of the european union and to achieve that so they say ok to just need to
3:11 pm
be like brothers really one less work on the same level work according to the same rules and then it's going to function well and that of course is something that the do you want to kill or the northern irish unionist party says we will not go forward we will just not bonnie that and there will be consequences on the force of the party chief has said this again and again so it looks not good and if labor sort of turns against that even that it's difficult to understand they shouldn't and it really has no chance to sort of get through parliament was particularly was that regard ok barbara last question we heard max say that the e.u. is now preparing the next steps looking ahead to that november twenty fifth summit if all goes to plan what happens next there in london. what happens next year in london is that we're waiting for the e.r. g. the european research group those this hard line tory faction to get together and to sort of mount their leadership challenge we don't know the timing off that yet
3:12 pm
and then we'll have to wait for the outcome of that and then we will know what the tory party still has a party leader and still has a prime minister so that's the next step here is oh it's a much it's a lot more basic less technical then and brought so it's small out of real life and it is very fast moving and nobody has any idea of what the result will be ok we could still see a lot more drama there in london today our correspondent barbara vessel there and max hoffman in brussels thank you both. now to some other stories making news around the world a top saudi prosecutor is seeking the death penalty for five people charged in connection with the murder of the journalist jamal khashoggi the official deny that crown prince mohammed bin solomon was involved in any way turkey has attacked the findings of the saudi investigation was killed last month after it entered the saudi consulate in istanbul the death toll in california's wildfires and now stands at fifty six with authorities warning that some one hundred thirty people are still
3:13 pm
missing thousands of firefighters are still battling blazes in the north and the south of the state with already say they're slowly gaining the upper hand. the european court of human rights has ruled against russia and a case brought by opposition activist alexina volney judges in straw for excited with no volley and said his various jailings by russian authorities between twenty twelve and twenty fourteen were politically motivated him only as a fierce critic of president vladimir putin and it's found himself behind bars on numerous occasions russia accused him of organizing a legal demonstrations without detaining him let's bring in our correspondent in moscow emily sure when it was standing by for us hi emily good to see you so what does this european court of human rights decision actually mean for moscow. well certainly it's a bit of a blow on the one hand it is a blow to russia it's a bit of a mix or other on the one hand it is a blow to russia because this ruling says that these arrests were politically
3:14 pm
motivated so essentially the ruling is questioning the existence of the rule of rock law in russia which is something that officials here including putin always emphasize as being very important and of course russia does care about its image on the international stage but on the other hand russia has been kind of setting the scene to question the legitimacy of any ruling that comes out of the european court for human rights for several years after the annexation of crimea in two thousand and fourteen russia was stripped of its voting rights in the european council which means that they also do not elect the judges in that court so they say and they have been saying now since two thousand and seventeen that this course the court is somehow biased against russia kind of setting the scene to really question any ruling that comes out of it so it's hard to know whether this ruling will really have a big effect but it is a blow to russia's international reputation emily alexy developing really has been
3:15 pm
in the past a thorn in blood in her putin's side what role does he still play in russia's political scene. well as you say a thorn in the near putin side certainly one of his fiercest critics a well known opposition politician who has called for protests over the years anti corruption protests which have sometimes yielded a huge turnout he's also created various investigations into the corruption of several members of the political elite including the prime minister need to be made if which have gone viral on you tube but it's hard to know how big his popularity really it is in russia on the whole in part because he is regularly discredited by state media in fact state t.v. today hasn't even been reporting about this court case at all they often don't mention him by name but it seems that he does have some sort of a a presence even if he's not named in political life here for example
3:16 pm
a new law has recently been brought in front of the do mother russian parliament which would make it punishable to call for miners to come out onto the streets for unauthorized protests a law which though it doesn't name certainly seems to be aimed against him as young people have often come out in droves to his protests. and reporting for us from moscow thank you so much. and back to a break that covers now investors are keeping a close eye on developments in london today gary hart has more on that and that's right sumi the british pound is struggling in the fallout of the u.k. government's bragg's it plan it fell one point seven percent against the euro following news of bags of minister dominic grower resignation its largest single slide since twenty seventeen can see markets have been highly volatile as details of a looming breaks it remain unclear since the referendum two years ago the pound has lost ten percent against the dollar and against the euro. so let's have
3:17 pm
a look at the repercussions the briggs's turmoil in love that is having on european stock markets let's cross over to frankfurt and our correspondent don you know that down here the british pound took a beating which was to be expected but how a stock markets taking the news. here i want to dig hard i can tell you that also most of the investors here on the trading floor they are all watching extremely closely what is happening there right now in the u.k. parliament and the blue chip in the exec's i guess you can see it in the background also as well with other indices here in europe has been really like a roller coaster during today's trading day and up and down the same situation at the footsie one hundred there in london as well we really went up here from the green this morning true red and are now down with about zero point seven percentage points there was some initial hold this morning that this could go through up parliament but when the first news was breaking we see that in the background that
3:18 pm
one of the cabinet ministers was stepping down and then even for this often isn't was really fading away among investors at this moment it seems nothing is certain for investors is to reserve may by the end of the day still the prime minister of the u.k. is there going to be hard breaks it or will we even see new elections coming up in the u.k. i was also talking to. investor a little bit early in london all they want for the moment is certainty what is going to happen let's see how this i guess we can really call it nerve wrecking day also here for investors it's going to continue here on the open i thank you. and that's all for this quick market up the specs we know thank you there have that today is the day of the imprisoned writer the annual event is organized by pen international to highlight threats to freedom of speech around the world tennis highlighting the cases of five individuals who it says embody the fates of many
3:19 pm
journalists and writers across the globe here's a look at three of them. arrested. jailed murdered three cases thousands of miles apart all persecuted for their work first leg sense of he's known as russia's most famous prisoner the ukrainian writer filmmaker and fierce critic of the kremlin is serving a twenty year jail term he's accused of plotting acts of terrorism charges he says are politically motivated. so he do alum an award winning photographer writer and activist he was being held in pretrial detention since august this year he was just granted bail thursday he's accused of making false and provocative statements during student protests. he says he's been beaten in custody
3:20 pm
critics say his arrest is part of a growing crackdown on dissent according to reporters without borders he's one of one hundred seventy journalists currently behind bars around the world activists say this number is growing at an alarming rate authoritarian governments are becoming increasingly emboldened and are targeting writers and journalists in ever greater numbers some are paying a heavy price for merely carrying out their work they will not be silenced. finally there was a breach of. veteran crime and politics reporter shot dead in her car in mexico in march twenty seventh teen she'd been investigating mexican drug cartels a note found next to her body read because you talk too much this year pan international say they want to drop particular attention to her case and recognition of the extreme violence taking place by lines that's claimed the lives of more than sixty journalists this year alone. let's bring in scott griffin
3:21 pm
the deputy director of the international press institute or i.p.i. in vienna scott thank you for joining us on our program where are the most dangerous hotspots for writers in the world. well if you three examples of places that we're looking at it and this is an opportunity to raise awareness about anyone who is behind bars for exercising his or his or her free expression but one place but particularly concerned about is turkey where according to our bureau one hundred sixty journalists are currently behind bars most of them on farcical charges of supporting terrorism based on their political therefore you forgot to mention we've monitored personally about fifty five trials a lot of journalists this year most of them lack basic guarantees of the rule of law student journalists are prevented from even attending their own trials and testifying in their own defense. another country that we're very concerned about is egypt and we don't. no the exact number of journalists imprisoned there you know
3:22 pm
for example of the photojournalist shot who received you know eskimos of all press freedom prize this year was supposed to have been released in september he was apprehended a few years ago for for doing his job of getting pictures of the arrest in egypt and despite this court ruling he hasn't been movies we don't know what his situation is that egypt is not providing information about this in a number of other cases and another country i think that we need to pay attention to is is in the end why are we have two journalists from reuters who were arrested and ultimately convicted for violating the so-called official secrets act which is the colonial relic basically for reporting on the growing job massacre. using information that they obtained from the police and this is a particularly concerning case because i mean i was thought to be a country that was emerging from decades of dictatorship and of grace in press freedom so what can a day like today actually achieve for a journalist and writers who are behind bars. well it's
3:23 pm
a really important opportunity to to raise awareness and to say you know press freedom is not given something that we have to fight for and get a position where you know globally we're you know we try to stay ahead of a lot of forces that are trying to keep your office and other you know critical voices silent and i think it's important to recognize that these sorts of campaigns can have an impact i want to point out the example of a journalist in nigeria james of erie who was held for two years basically incommunicado with the you know the prison where nigeria we didn't know where he was he was accused of plotting against the state it was no evidence he was there and eventually things who campaigned by pirates as a committee to protect journalists he was released charges were dropped it was the press freedom so we really have to remember that these campaigns can have an impact all right scott griffin a deputy director of the international press institute in vienna thank you very much for joining us here and. if you've. now hundreds of central

3:25 pm
gratifying that a lot of people are helping that it brings out the humanity in us and it pleases me to see the difference we are making it up with apple yet we're all very proud to be mexican this is the same. mexico as in migrants heading north travel through the country for decades this is a chance for it to express solidarity with them. that is we have to deal with this acutely painful situation to reach out to people passing through who are working on this that. colombians and who think that we reject them we have to support each other because we are all human beings and we feel for them. but the migrants have not been welcomed by everyone some mexicans have begun lashing out at them. that they have no problems because they don't was
3:26 pm
if i come here to contribute than that welcome his seems not the having a day at the beach. or a throw away the food we give them but they keep their big. numbers but many of them are drunk you're amazing in public everywhere mexico cannot cope with receiving them in the hope that from now on officials check their papers and give them what they deserve and give us what we deserve their human rights are apparently worth more than ours and. some of the migrants have experienced these attitudes during their journey. but even so most a mexico has offered them good care. now one person in so to does we don't like that but i guess we have to accept it we are invading their country. mexico has received us very well we're very proud because it has given us all this support for you we have not

3:31 pm
bangladesh had a chaotic start to its controversial repatriation program for refugees today one hundred fifty working go were meant to cross back to me and mar. not one of them turned up instead there were angry protests at the border hundreds of thousands of muslims are currently living in sprawling camps around the bangladeshi city of cox's bazar huge exits began last august following a military crackdown and min mars for a kind state bangladesh has already made several unsuccessful attempts to send back to me in march despite repeated warnings that conditions are still not safe the u.n. high commissioner for human rights michelle bachelet has urged to call off the program in a statement she said quote we're turning for him the refugees to me and maher at this point effectively means throwing them back into the cycle of human rights violations that this community has been suffering for decades bring us now fear
3:32 pm
they will be sent back against their will most of the twenty two hundred people out of bangladesh repatriation list have reportedly gone into hiding. the sheer scale of the refugee crisis in bangladesh hundreds of thousands of residents and muslims are living in squalid camps like this they fled to me and ma because of army led violence following a military crackdown but with agreement from me on mon today bangladesh begins the enormous task of trying to repatch reate them it's a move that's proving deeply unpopular for. the entire community leader told me that my number has been listed and i have to return to myanmar my son and daughter were killed there i cannot pray there no one talks about our rights there we were sent away after being labelled bengali we will not go back there. this family have fled the bangladeshi can't they called their home and are in hiding so fearful are
3:33 pm
they of returning to me and mom well more with they have tortured us so much there are no words to explain it we went through so much pain and if we go back again to face the same why should we go it's better to die here by taking poison. there will have to stay in camps were already in camps here i feel that i will die here so don't try to understand age organizations in the un refugee agency at mit there are still concerns for the safety of those who do return but never the less the work to repatch one hundred fifty row hinge or a day is under way into this we're still talking to the work in jail refugees or people on the ground or working to encourage them to go back are associated organizations are also working on the matter. life in camps like this is far from easy but for many rahane staying here is far better than being forced to return
3:34 pm
back home. let's bring in deborah guha she is the head of death of use asia department she recently returned from a visit to the camps near casas bazaar differently thank you for joining us tell us what you saw there how worried were people about the prospect of returning to myanmar yeah actually people are immensely immensely in fear i mean they want to go to the our own land but without a national id not without difficult mission from myanmar moreover there is no more village existing anymore in myanmar saw that they don't any reconstruction without their homes big cannot go back and of course there is a fear of genocide and torch is still there so they do not want to return to their security is in short ok so they don't want to go back but bangladesh says these repatriations will actually be totally voluntary how can that be the case. to know none of it taken to the transit camp u.n.h.c.r.
3:35 pm
also confirmed that a number of the listed are being honest which are all and over two thousand have agreed to return to their rock and state so as spy believed it's news the process of repatriation has been postponed the u.n. and the red cross both say a kind state isn't safe enough to send bring us back that this whole process has been rushed why do you think then that both governments seem so determined to start this program now. well for me and martin there is obviously a huge pressure from the international community along with the white spread criticism because of which myanmar signed an agreement with bangladesh in the beginning of this year to take back the recently displaced as for bangladesh the pressure is from the local community no one should understand that drawing does are a majority now in that area which is also resulting in tensions and even clashes we should also keep in mind of bangladesh is not a wealthy country how much of a strain have these hundreds of thousands of refugees been putting on the country.
3:36 pm
when it's huge and there is a lot of internationally for example the refugees are given rice lentils and oil that distil need cash so what to do when to sell part of these aids get cash and buy vegetables fish so picks it up this is resulting in a parallel economy in bangladesh there are many shops outside or inside the camps now on the other hand the refugees are not allowed to go out of the camps after four pm there are schools for the children but there are no books that are secured places for vim and children but there are nothing for young boys that's they're getting into criminal and illegal activities so the strain on bangladeshis not only to provide them with food and shelter but i think that it is also to provide a decent livelihood and i think that this is tough and i really believe that it will take a. very long time and they would still much longer time than expected all right deborah. thank you so much for joining us thank you. turning now to
3:37 pm
a global global problem that often goes under reported due to social stigma suicide the w.h.o. estimates that around eight hundred thousand people commit suicide worldwide every year and different gender rates of suicide indicate that around three hundred thousand of those deaths are women and a new study says an alarming number of women in india are taking their own lives the length that medical journal says women in india kill themselves at almost twice the global average in fact of all global female suicide deaths one third are in india the study's authors are calling it a public health crisis reports from mumbai. she finds cooking therapeutic her life hasn't been easy after putting up with years of sexual abuse as a child she thought tried to commit suicide in a teenager. the scars never really healed as she tried to sell
3:38 pm
a farm many years later studies have revealed attitudes diverts female sexuality in india but sexual abuse survivors at a greater risk of targeting suicide. and in woman's wirt in this is the idea unfortunately that lives and it's come to lead needed a ved by the certification of chastity that is distorted bonhomme by the so-called you know keepers of of the modern you know state and standards of the society you either have a goddess. on your tomato on your record. there is no in between. she thought isn't alone of every four young women who die in india each year three teenagers who have committed suicide studies are short of the females you signed reads in india is exceptionally high academics say that
3:39 pm
there are certain cultural reasons that make women in india particularly vulnerable just suicide some of these reasons are gender based discrimination gender based violence sexual violence and also a culture of silence around anything to do with mental health in this country. is a leading psychiatrist and a specialist in female psychiatric issues she says many of these social problems lead to them and want to end their lives. is sexual abuse that goes unnoticed at the workplace you've been taught you know there is still. which is so vivid get depressed as a result of which it is depression that all too horrible new problems which cause depression in been which go unnoticed thanks to the ignorance that as a society and thanks to the stigma about it going to a mental health professional. but social problems are not the only difficulties
3:40 pm
indeed women face and trenched cultural norms in a country that is changing rapidly to the pressure of just you expect to do a lot of things because a good big get to be in law if you're expected to go because when you're expected to go to children. and your husband and his knee and. the husband usually never partakes him any of it other than just begin wanting a home so that's the set up being you know enough to fit. back in our apartment sheetal is busy with work she thanks her friends and therapy for helping up a true she is one of the lucky ones. that report from raul dzhokhar and he joins us for more on the story from mumbai reichl good to see you so this high rate of suicide among women in india has been called a public health crisis what is the government doing. that's right you're absolutely
3:41 pm
right to point that out researchers have said that the number of women committing suicide is alarmingly high in india combat do the numbers statistically speaking across the world and the second thing researchers seem to agree on is that they're required to be there is in fact an urgent requirement by the government to have a national suicide prevention strategy that is gender specific i mean that has been sporadic at that and by both non-governmental organization and the government so there have been help lines that have been set up there are lots of activists who often with a bit of government aid going to schools and colleges to women in the age group of sixteen to twenty five to spread of venice about this is you but the missing link here really is an order arching policy that ties together all of these things together in a targeted way and in a gender specific fast well what are some of the barriers that women face in accessing our mental health care. you're quite right to bring up mental health
3:42 pm
because actually often the precursor before a person decides to take the ultimate step is is a long term condition to do with men to have them often in india there are two barrier the one big barrier that simply the number of mental health care professionals in india is just they just don't exist and the second is that often women within within families fighting pretty hard to come out there and say that hey actually i really need to see a mental health professional because that is that level of stigma it's a taboo and people often especially women who say that they are in need of mental health are often cast aside by society aren't good at is rather just like our reporting on a very important story there for us out from mumbai thank you so much. turning now to south korea were a hush has fallen over the country today as more than half

statistic suicide is the number one cause of death for people under thirty in south korea. and so quiet vigils across the nation on a day that could decide the future of so many young lives. sports now after their spectacular downfall of the world cup it's been a very slow rebuilding process for germany's national football team they're playing a friendly against russia tonight we have max mel from d.w. sports with us max this is a friendly but how important is this match for germany yeah it's important because of the lackluster revamp like you said it hasn't really clicked into place back again after the world cup we were promised this big revamp it hasn't quite happened yet germany have had one single clean sheet in the last fourteen months that was against france in a nil mill draw just two months ago but also there's a lack of scoring on the other side of the pitch their attackers aren't doing well
3:46 pm
their defenders out well so lots to improve your live and we'll take a look at how the preparations are going. to take two of the rave in germany go into the friendly against russia still seeking to regain their fans confidence following a disastrous world cup their recovery after that debacle hasn't gone well when they've lost their last two matches that might be the reason that there are still ten thousand unsold tickets for wednesday's game over the couldn't sell. off to the year we've had we can't exactly expect the fives to be queuing around the block and that's all you can and we have to ask ourselves some hard questions kids in the. next week germany face the netherlands in the european nations league but they could be already relegated from their group by then if the netherlands beat france on thursday yohimbe live is remarkably relaxed about that danger. clar sure
3:47 pm
as i can knock off it's out of our hands now whether we'll stay in the group we have to wait and see the netherlands front result and we need to learn to confront christ didn't know me as if we are in a lower group in twenty twenty so be it that's not the end of the world we can always get promoted again the gun the company over the. twenty eighteen has brought only disaster and disarray for the german national saud their upcoming fixtures of their final internationals of the year two last chances to end on a hawr. right max we're hearing that you know fans aren't exactly rushing out to get the tickets why is that well i think is a couple of reasons i mean you know you live did address that the bad results surely don't help in the sort of mean sign when they're trying to sell tickets for friendly's games the really officially of any of importance i do think also thursday a quarter to nine in germans on courses on in the evening is not the ideal time to lose droves of fans and also you can say that lights is not

a big footballing city at least traditionally in germany it's growing juice the fact that they now have a boost to your club but overall it's most probably because of the bad performances from germany at the moment i think fans are thinking twice before they go purchase a ticket you mention that. what does this match mean for his future if they're relegated is that the end of the road for him yes i mean like we heard in the report on friday so tomorrow there's a game against between the netherlands and france with a group of rivals in the u.a.e. for nations leagues now it's a very complicated format this nation's league but essentially if netherlands beat france germany finished balsam of that group and will then be relegated to a lower tier in the nation's league a bit of a kick in the teeth really for. but he's not too worried he says i think his job is not really in danger at this point we heard he was backed off of the world cup and he's been backed again since then but he's experimenting now so i think they're going to give him
3:49 pm
a little bit of leeway and at least until the euro's twenty twenty and one thing that's interesting is that he's starting to complain about he's promoting his lack of options at the front of the pitch and striking positions in the press conference yesterday he gave examples of players like robert levin edinson cavani and luis suarez plays that he would like to have so he seems a little bit discontent we'll see how long he feels comfortable in the job all right the rebuilding process continues tonight in a friendly against russia mexico from debby's for thank you very much thank you. yeah paintings. what do you mean by conservation. you might be asking too much of people i'd like to share my vision with people who can see what i see the way i say yes. because my vision is closer to the reality of the world i can make people feel what it's like

his and his painting changed a lot in the last ten years of his life it was also when he was most productive but came out of price as we all know i became depressed. also the time it includes the incident. of his own but the mental disease was not only painful for him it was also a chance for art. is more valuable than laughter he once wrote and allowed us so that's how i look at the trader of this movie. some of the writing say you are a painter. because i'm not i have surpassed. the bone pain. yes. you know. the terms i can't do anything else and greet me after time.
