5:02 pm
crumbling five ministers resigned from my government this morning saying they couldn't support the agreement between london and brussels one of the five who quit was the minister responsible for bracks it dominic robb who said the deal was a very real threat to the integrity of the u.k. now hardline. jacob reese mog move to try to force theresa may from office through a no confidence first reaction and analysis from london in brussels in just a moment first here is the prime minister defending that 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 says sincerely for all that they've done we were told that we had a binary choice between the model of norway or the model of canada that we could not have but they spoke deal which the outline political decoration sense housing arrangement that is better for our country than both of these
5:03 pm
a more ambitious free trade agreement than the e.u. has with any other country. well let's get the latest from barber of a school in london and max hoffman in brussels welcome both barbara let's start with you cannons to the left callum's to the right does it look like mrs ray is going to get this deal through parliament. it seems that treason may has really set off civil war in her own party that is the first thing that is happening and that is what we are seeing today here in london because the brits cheers are now in full battle mode against a reason may you just mentioned jekyll freeze mark who've said i'm throwing down the gauntlet against her leadership but we will have a leadership contest it is not quite yet clear when that is going to happen bot it bodes ill thought to reason may and so she really is surrounded by enemies and as
5:04 pm
you said there are cannons speaking fired from all sides so a tough day for the prime minister first they would have to had deal now it looks like they're coming after her let's hear from jacob riis mark the conservative party referendum on which almost all conservative m.p.'s stood said specifically that 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 course fifty baba faisal in london it's important to remember that this is a man from her own side her own conservatives that didn't tell us who is jacob reese mark. jake a free smart is one of the leading figure off the hard line breaks to tears he very early on recognized that this was a cause that he could galvanize the the anti europeans and the tory party with and he has been almost the sort of been
5:05 pm
a figure on the backbench has never really put himself out into the limelight never said i want to be a leader i want to do anything but always been sniping from the bag but his popularity within the tory party has been consistently high in some all with all of us have said he could be our next leader and then of course there are those who say you have to help us that not happen so he is really is somebody who is very divisive but he is smart he is a good strategist and he has now seen the point in time where he can finally pounds and move against a tourism a something that has been months in the making the top one in brussels e.u. leaders have been aware of the bitterness of this fight in the u.k. parliament if may go is this deal likely to stand. it really depends who comes afterwards if you talk to the social democrats for example in the city there is there is reborn hope here that there might even be
5:06 pm
a second referendum and then that referendum wouldn't be in favor of the remainder or so that there is no brags it at all in the end but of course it's really hard to save somebody like jacob riis mog becomes the next prime minister of the united kingdom that's probably not going to be the case so the overall strategy at the moment is to stay the course keep calm carry on meaning that there is a withdrawal agreement and that the us taking all the necessary steps to prepare that brags that some of that is scheduled for the twenty fifth of november meaning they're getting the feedback the analysis now from the different capitals of the member states on the withdrawal agreement also at the same time preparing the political agreement that's supposed to hint at what the future relationship between the u.k. and the e.u. is going to look like is it going to be a free trade area is it going to be a customs union so a lot of work to be done a lot of questions to be solved until that summit and really the next step is in the u.k. so they can't really do anything else but wait what's going to happen in london the
5:07 pm
a you of course has stood foursquare behind that lead to go to michelle bonnie i so when the summit happens does it mean that this enormous document will just get not need through by heads of government and indeed by the european parliament. surprising unity absolutely right phil something that not many would have expected because you know one of the troubles in the e.u. you have a lot more you have a lot more problems but it's the first time maybe the change or big changes at least made to it not very likely what we're hearing there might be some changes here and there but weeks expect that unity to hold up also the e.u. bragg's its summit if it really happens to pending or what the developments are in london providing still if there's no confidence move against prime the british prime minister does have a lot of the time scales are likely to be if she loses when and when would she go
5:08 pm
that is the big question that everybody is asking here because i have told earlier it might happen fairly quickly now reason marx said in the meantime it could be a measure of weeks not of months of course because he knows that all this is moving forward very quickly on the on the on the stage in brussels and internationally but it could be a matter of weeks so we have to wait for when the hardline tories are staging this revolt against a reason may and we have to wait for the result. is also put out some names very well known names mostly as future possible leaders boris johnson of course david davis the big beasts of prey and of course dominique roth who just stepped down as for exit minutes or so if these are the people who are going to follow what mike said is of course completely right this whole deal needs to be binned because they're not going to get to go through with it but all this is still up in the air and the tory party the the hardliners in the tory party have not yet said we will
5:09 pm
do this and that and that day we have to wait for that bot the move move things are very dynamic here and they seem to move extremely quickly revisal in london max hoffman in brussels thank you both. all right let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world a top side you prosecutor is seeking the death penalty for five people charged in connection with the murder of the journalist of. saudi arabia's public prosecutor denied the crown prince mohammed bin sultan was involved in the plot turkey has attacked the findings of the saudi investigation because she was killed last month after entering the saudi consulate in istanbul. the death toll in california's wildfires now stands at fifty six with the authorities warning that about one hundred thirty people are still missing thousands of firefighters are still battling blazes in the north and south of the state there with others who say they are slowly gaining the upper hand. africa's fastest train line
