says a d.w.i. news on live from berlin e.u. leaders have endorsed of brecht's the deal at a special summit in brussels. is to be posted with just the first the post you were just so you see a rudy. european commission president. marks what he said it was a sad day for the european union. but british prime minister theresa may says she does not share that sadness and is calling on her country to move on may now faces the challenge of pushing the deal through her own parliament the opposition labor
labor party has already said it will vote against it. then women around the world take to the streets to call for a stop to domestic abuse and gender based violence. nick spicer welcome to the program. the european union has officially agreed on a divorce deal for britain's departure from the bloc it took the heads of the e.u. used twenty seven other nations just an hour at a special summit in brussels e.u. officials said they were sad at the u.k.'s withdrawal but stressed the walk and britain would remain partners and friends u.k. prime minister theresa may urged britons to support the deal but it won't be plain sailing britain's opposition labor party say they will vote against the deal when it's put to part of it in just over two weeks' time. she still has
a seat at the table british prime minister to resign may today in brussels but after a long and arduous period of negotiations e.u. leaders have inched closer to britain's final departure many openly expressed their regret. thought you had. just the country leaving the e.u. does not make me want to raise from pain glass or applause it's a sad day and everybody us spoke with today expressed this sadness of it was unanimously shared we don't need to move. a relief nevertheless for tourism a who's facing ever stronger headwinds at home the nearly six hundred page long withdrawal agreement covers citizens' rights the forty four billion euro divorce bill and the irish border issue it also sets out the basis of the future relationship i recognise some european leaders also out at this moment but also some people back home in the u.k. will be at this at this moment but the way i look at it is actually this is for us
now to move on to the next stage to move on as i said i am full of optimism about the future of our country may now has to seek parliamentary approval at home which will be much more difficult amidst divisions even among her own party and e.u. leaders today made clear there will be no renegotiation of the agreement. this is. this is an accomplished diplomatic feat i want to emphasize that this is an extremely difficult situation high situation without any precedent because we haven't had it before this a european country lose the e.u. this agreement not considers the interests of both sides and also looks into the future. for theresa may the drama continues in early december that's when the british parliament is expected to vote on the deal but even if it's ratified that's only the beginning of many months possibly years
of negotiations on the future relationship between britain and the e.u. . and a look at the future relationship let's bring in correspondent bill gates's masts mass who is in london for us in new leaders are calling this a sad day but what are the reactions been in the u.k. so far. well that's not exactly a lot of champagne corks popping here in the heat that a lot of people have problems with the deal and that's been yes well today businesses pushes these food to for them it's the end of a lot of uncertainty say they don't except they're not exactly enthusiast because for many businesses they would much rather for britain to remain within the e.u. but it's these day they think if this deal comes through at least and it's not the cliff edge at the end of march next year however we've heard from many palam and herion from the opposition the labor party the biggest opposition party here in the
u.k. that they're going to vote against the deal because they believe it's just not good enough and jeremy cool been the leader of the labor party has even said well if labor did take over he believes he can negotiate a better deal however we do know that brussels doesn't really think that well precisely let's listen now if you don't mind to. who was very clear saying there'll be no negotiations with that clip right now. i'm invited to go. to work if i just didn't feel the house of commons truth. this is the best thing for which this is the best course for europe this is the only course. now and when he says that is he trying to help theresa may get this through parliament in a way. i think he is you know i mean everyone knows how problematic it is for the reason made to find consensus in parliament and
there will be pressure on each and every one of the conservative m.p.'s because we know that especially conservative m.p.'s are also very very critical a lot of them who have food for breakfast they think that the u.k. will be tied to the you much too closely and and possibly for. an indefinite period of time so they don't really want to go ahead with it then there are others who also injuries and bait parties think that the second referendum could be possible to reason a strong card is well if you don't help me then we'll be at the situation where we just crash out at the end of march it's going to be chaos for everyone chaos for business pays at the borders so we just need to get this deal through it's my deal or no deal. and then what happens if if the deal gets voted down from the from the day it gets voted down to the to the weeks after what kind of scenarios communication. well there was
a discussion here in london in the u.k. that then parliamentarians would sense reason made back and ask her to just get something a little bit better from the e.u. but then you know we've had today that this is very unlikely to happen so who knows they might still try that or to resume could so it's a step down and she has tied himself very closely to this withdrawal agreement to this deal so she could say well if you don't support me then try it with someone else that would be one scenario then there are some people who would hope that if m.p.'s basically con can't get any agreement within themselves then it has to go back to the people in the us to get to a referendum on this deal they argue that when people vote for press that they didn't know what bracks it would mean but now we do know what it would be roughly what it means if these we have a sort of outside and that this is the people and they should decide whether they
would really want it over they would want to stay within the e.u. say those are all possible scenarios but what actually is going to happen nobody knows at this stage thank you so much for shedding light on the situation for speaking mass reporting for us from london thank you. and now to some of the other stories making news around the world the ukraine. the navy says russia has seized three of its ships in the black sea after firing on the vessels to vote for damaged and two crew members were wounded off the courage straight near russian controlled crimea ukraine president petro poroshenko has called an emergency meeting of his top military brass. and ugandan divers have retrieved thirty one bodies after a boat capsized on lake victoria dozens more are feared dead the vessel was on a routine pleasure cruise and believed to be overcrowded with nearly one hundred mostly young revelers when it sank saturday evening at least twenty seven people

refuge at the safe house for women three years ago she also went to a safe house but eventually went back to her husband like many women she says she let herself because jolt into returning she hoped for reconciliation not least because of their small child. if there's anyone out there who wants to leave they should just leave and never go back i can only it wise to do that because afterwards everything gets much much worse. the women's refuge has started a poster campaign to highlight the plight of women like sandra with the words the dignity of women is in buyable other women who found help at the safe house also have a clear message they want work times to make their experiences public and get help to other women out there don't be afraid to take a step forward you'll get support. if i didn't know where i could get help i was just at home waiting for someone to come and get me out of this hell. beaten in
