4:02 pm
turmoil almost led to a leadership challenge the prime minister's the prime minister's critics accuse her of giving in to the e.u. and of negotiating a deal that is bad for great britain well however during prime minister's questions in the u.k. parliament the prime minister argues that the case for the kitten argued the case that the situation is the exact opposite of the package of the deal that we will be to we are negotiating with the european union has two parts to it this is leave in part which is the withdrawal agreement on this a future relationship which is what is currently being continuing to be negotiated with the european union they go together as a package yes the withdrawal agreement has been agreed in principle the whole package will be what is brought before this house will be will she is considered the european union council on sunday and we continue to negotiate on that future relationship to get the good deal that we believe is right for the united kingdom
4:03 pm
a good deal that protects jobs protects all you need to protect our security and that was the british prime minister theresa may there defending the draft brings a deal that she has to sell to the british parliament or she's on her way to brussels as we speak so let's bring in a did correspondent garrick much as he is at the e.u. h.q. on the story for us good to see you georg we'll see you chief sweeten the briggs's deal what sort of concessions is the european union likely to allow theresa may to take back to her parliament to help her seal the deal. you've heard the british prime minister here saying that the divorce part is agreed in principle and that's also the perception that the e.u. has of that deal so the eight hundred fifty eight pages of the divorce agreement i don't think anyone wants to touch those pages anymore when it comes to the political declaration that is part of the total divorce agreement i think there's
4:04 pm
some wiggle room there the e.u. has always set in a lose lose scenario and that's what bracks it is for the you there is no success element in it they are keen to guarantee an orderly breck's it and if a few more fluffy formulations in that in that few of the future relationship will help to reason may get that divorce deal through parliament then i'm sure that is something that can be done all right so nothing substantial expected all right garrick stay with us if you would as we wanted to look take a look now at another headache that's facing brussels where you are now in this time it's really the european commission has rejected the latest draft of the country's budget opening the door to disciplinary proceedings including significant fines for rome and a freeze on funding the country's populace government has been at loggerheads with brussels over its spending plans for months rome argues it needs to stimulate the
4:05 pm
economy and offer italians some perspire after years of austerity but brussels says italian spending is out of control and worries that the size of the country's proposed deficit could spark another debt crisis that could in gulf the entire your p. in the union. this is very serious we're talking about the third largest economy in the eurozone just how big a problem is this going to be for the commission going forward. a potentially it's a huge problem you name it third largest economy in the eurozone that means it's too big to fail too big to save as well and that's why a commission is today said to stick to those limits regarding debt unless you're sleep walking towards instability that's one commissioner was set another one said vulnerable to shocks and that vulnerability does not only affect italy it is
4:06 pm
a scenario in the worst case that could draw in the entire euro zone because and that's the picture that commission is used today we're all sitting in one boat so let's all play by the rules it's particularly important for countries in the north of the eurozone who want to emphasize who take italy as a showcase to say look we've got to stick to those rules otherwise we're all doomed . just reporting from brussels thank you so very much we'll check in with you later in the evening. now the italian government was elected on a promise to bring radical change to italy partially in the form of more generous welfare one of its flagship programs is the so-called citizen's wage for the poorest italians which brussels thinks is too expensive our correspondents at milan he out of credit bol went to center in italy to find out what people think about the program and italy's relationship with the e.u. . just south of naples twenty year old

lawrence is on his way to the job center italy's new populist government has promised that this job seeker certificate could soon and him and millions of other poor talents and a generous income of up to seven hundred eighty euros a month but do it in such things it's unlikely he will ever see any of what's being called a citizen's wage is where you would use the baby and i think in the end just a little bunch of people are going to get its. citizens wage eagerly awaited by many italians will cost billions of euros it's the most expensive item in a budget which has raised concerns in the european union that italy could soon be sowing the seeds of a financial crisis. gordon so he's worried that it's an increasingly strained relationship with the e.u. could play a big part in breaking up the union. yeah i think i'm worried we would be be was the. us. is really
4:08 pm
doing. is really hard on the european union i'm worried about but lawrence is views put him in the minority here in the south with the wiring levels of youth unemployment most people support the government's hard stance towards the e.u. and have high hopes that the citizens wage could change their life the question is though can it really stimulate the country's economy or is it just a populist inefficient giveaway that neither italy nor the e.u. can really afford thirty two year old moto who has been without a job for four years has a clear answer he supports rome picking a fight with brussels. see i believe it's right to stand up to the european union. the most part of ns i think to comply and i've left italy behind.
4:09 pm
and all that i think the new government will change the situation for the better. but you are. not far away in front of another rundown drops and in the city more unemployed neapolitans are queuing to learn more about the citizens' wage they to support the new government. when i hope that something good could happen. i hope i hope so i trust this government i voted for the walk otherwise we complement. gordon so however if i'm convinced that this government or the citizens wage will in any way improve his situation maybe i just have to mow. s. where. it's not personally open for. to say and change something about it's getting harder and harder to fight the good you keep looking for a blank if not into me then somewhere else in the you could do
