recently has just been grilled on live radio talk radio in london what were the main takeaways there. the main takeaways were that she could survive that rather easily because the host of the talk show who is generally feared as being rather fierce sort of gave her a lot of soft soap he let her get away was defending her breaks a deal rather easily and people who might have ranted and raved for over the telephone we're obviously screened out she talked about the n.h.s. about her own diabetes and of course she was asked rule michael gove the agriculture minister who is one of the stabilizing forces in her cabinet will he stay or will he go and she said of course i'm always very sorry if somebody feels that he has to leave cabinet i would love him to stay on but that is his to this decision and he hasn't come out here yet to talk in front of the t.v. cameras and say what she's going to do so we don't know yet whether her cabinet
will see further turmel and further resignations during the course of the day and what we also don't know is whether the have lined tories have reached the this threshold of forty eight letters to be sent into their chairman in order to trigger in internal sort of no confidence vote within the tory party against reason may well barbara with so much the turmoil there in london we sent our reporter out onto the street to get we actions from wonders last night let's take a look. chaos and confusion not just inside punishment but on the streets of london as well for the people here outside westminster the bracks a drama is anything but it done deal i mean are you going to. remove. him and must
agree and i will try to go back to the country give them a choice do you want this deal the compass negotiated. or do you want to remain within your opinion. is just ridiculous as a willing to kill. for the opinions and your opinion state definitely say the original vote was made without all the information that people needed really to make the decision people's vote no. across the city it's all i saw in the case politicians and their heated cracks a chair down and it's not just remain us who don't like the deal thanks to tears on happy to. the politicians. and. some of them in the middle of the end of the day the referendum was a binary choice was winston churchill said the majority of is in off.
by you voted to leave i'm not going to lie but right now i would stay we need to fight the threat that. the difficult compromises haven't united the two sides have to be paid on the country great citizen remain assumed to be further apart than ever but on one thing they do agree this is not the deal they want for their country. harper nobody seems to be happy with the steel what exactly do people there say is the problem with this agreement. it is the conundrum at the core of breck's it really for the cheers who want to clean break was the european union who want out and cut all ties and be completely independent it's a brick city enough because it ties britain for years to come it to the rules of the european union's for the remainders of course they say now come on folks this is worse than the deal we have now as being members of the european union why should we do this there is no purpose to it does hold pro checked so those two
sides are standing there in it is not three com so i little the difference between them because the deal of course is to reason may emphasize over and over again it is the best deal she could get in brussels and it is of course already a compromise botched people do still find it in palatable unpalatable and that goes for both sides of the political divide all right barbara vessel for us in london barbara thank you very much now it's been called cambodia has nuremberg moment in the last few hours two leaders of the khmer rouge regime have been found guilty of genocide by a un backed tribunals the court and non pen ruled that to some and were responsible for the murder and slave meant torture and persecution of nearly two million cambodians between one nine hundred seventy five and one nine hundred seventy nine it's considered one of the worst atrocities of the twentieth century the verdict is
the first official acknowledgement that what the camaro rouge regime did was genocide as to find under international law. we can talk to our southeast asia correspondent boston heartache who is following the story for us hi boston what more can you tell us about these two men. well so me there are the two most senior figures of the career regime who are still alive being the right hand man of pol pot pol pot of course the former leader of the khmer rouge who died in one nine hundred ninety eight and was head of state under the khmer rouge so they are really top tier and they were both already serving life sentences for crimes against other crimes against humanity that they were convicted of in a previous trial and they both denied responsibilities for these crimes however and they weren't the only two who were indicted in this trial they were two other
senior figures but because the trial dragged on for so long and it happened quite late remember that it's almost been forty years since the end of the commit regime those two other figures have since passed away so they're these are these two are the ones that the only ones that the court can still convict in this case to me how significant is this verdict. well you mentioned it what observers are saying is that it's significant in the way that it acknowledges for the first time that what happened under the khmer rouge was in fact genocide now this could also have implications for other countries take me in march for example where the un is saying that what's happening there what happened there with the road in western me and mar that is also genocide so should there ever be a trial this could be basically a role this could function as a role model now it's also important for the many survivors of the c'mere regime
you can see that if you look at the numbers over the course of this trial some eighty three thousand people came from all parts of the country just to spend a day in the courtroom and to see justice being served and many are saying that it's very important to them to see that happening and that these crimes don't go unpunished even if it's just the top tier of the career rouge regime who are who have to stand or who had to stand trial here soon. our south-east asia correspondent bussin heartache speaking to us earlier now to some other stories making news around the world japan's prime minister shinzo are they house aide and historic visit to the australian city of darwin avi and his australian counterpart scott morrison laid a wreath at the darwin center tower obvious the first japanese leader to visit the city since it was bombed by the japanese army in world war two. north korean leader kim jong un has allegedly visited the test site of a new tactical weapon it was the state media first mention in months of
