struggle to push for reforms in the gulf. to get back on track with the host. for the huge loss in its previous match. welcome to the program from mr theresa may is making a final push to defend that agreement with the e.u. she set to meet european commission president. a day ahead of a special summit to approve the deal now its passage depends on whether spanish prime minister bedroll sanchez is satisfied the issue of gibraltar has been adequately addressed he has threatened to boycott the summit unless spain has written assurances over the future of the british. see no it would have the if there's no deal. then it's clear that the european council summit will not go ahead
11:02 am
because if it was. from all i'm joined now from brussels by my colleague max hope on next spain is saying that it could go peter the cement even vetoed the whole briggs the deal over gibraltar and actually do that you know there's that's a question we asked ourselves all week it's the most asked question of brussels at the moment and we came to the conclusion here in the studio brussels then yes they can because normally at these summits decisions are taken consensually which means that spain could stain and it would still pass but if they actively say no we do not want this deal then it will not pass and by the way this this dimension the magnitude of this whole topic is such that anything else than unanimity would wouldn't fly in this case so clearly gibraltar is very important but is gibraltar the only issue in today's talks between me and you commission chief. it's the biggest chunk of what remains there are other contentious issues for example
11:03 am
fisheries and we're now hearing talk of an additional document that might be side tomorrow on sunday during the e.u. bragg's it's something we already have to the first one being the withdrawal agreement so that the force agreement between the u.k. and the european union the second one being the political agreement that will outline the future relationship between the u.k. the e.u. and now maybe a third document to give interpretations some context to those contentious issues like the balls are like fisheries because they have to wait and see if this is enough for spain it can be a lot of eyes will also be on your prime minister to be some man who is himself a second out of resistance on old sides at home over this deal what's the view in brussels about how to lie been a partner she is right now. well they're all following it very closely the drama that's unfolding in the united kingdom but she's also earn some respect in the last weeks and months and of course it's a very puzzling situation now the only to reset may but how the whole brags and
11:04 am
drama will unfold now so much so all that i really had to get it off my chest by it by making it a little poorer and you know what it's called it's called survivor and here it is. and. what would we all do without drugs it's the story of a lifetime keeping thousands of politicians public officials and journalists busy most of all of course to resubmit yes she still is the prime minister of the ukraine at least at the time of this recording. but i believe with every fiber of my being that the course i have set out is the right one for our country and old people you have to give the to her she's nothing if not persistent. it used to be different may was ridiculed
11:05 am
disregarded to clerics who are politically dead but that all changed with the brilliant move she made. to words. dancing queen. so this clearly shows that theresa may is beyond caring what people think of are ok that's not the only reason she's earning some admiration for you the paper it's written on prime minister it's also the fact of simply still being there but now things are about to get really dicey not necessarily here in brussels it seems likely that leaders will sign off on the withdrawal agreement and the political agreement on sunday. this is where the real battle will take place. well as the battle already is taking place really interest in this house of commons yourself man this empty document. this
11:06 am
empty document could have been written show years ago it's happened with phrases such as the parties will lookouts the parties will explode watching us as the government been doing for the last two years with this kind of resistance what happens next. let's say european leaders approved the divorce agreement that's up to the house of commons and you know what they're like. if they do say yes then the european parliament and the e.u. member states need to form a view approve the deal at the beginning of next year. results an orderly brecht's and at the end of march two thousand and nineteen if the house of commons votes no and that seems likely at the moment chaos ensues. after some reflection time all of these possibilities are on the menu from directors it chaos to no gregs at
11:07 am
all my thoughts on that. there's still lots of work to be done for me so i made yeah we always say that but you know what it's true this she remains prime minister for the sovereignty all right. and what happened that doesn't max. well the likelihood of our brags it increases because suzi a new prime minister will take time and that's the one thing that nobody has at the moment of course depends on who will become the new prime minister of exit here then the chances of our bracks an increase even further back so when in brussels always a pleasure talking to you thank you very much not as all the other stories making news around the world a new study in brazil say is the destruction of the amazon rain forest has reached its highest level in a decade the government data called illegal logging
