9:02 pm
seven other european union members they're not changing the narrative here they're happy to offer warm words and some moral support but a renegotiation of the breaks a deal remains out of the question. theresa may needs help selling her breck's a deal at home and right upon arrival at the summit european leaders seem eager to offer support to say i just said i think i'm ready to help. we're ready to have i have to agree to suspect from the way she's doing this the tenacity of this i do is elian so she really has reason to your question i'm really admiring meanwhile the british prime minister is facing an impossible task lobbying for concessions on the withdrawal agreement that none of the other leaders want to make i recognize the strength of concern in the house of commons and that's what i will be pushing to colleagues today i don't expect an immediate breakthrough but what i do hope is that we can start to work as quickly as possible on the shorts is that
9:03 pm
a necessary. headwind for may also from outside the european council this group of activists had come all the way from london to protest the deal because. she's coming here begging the european leaders we demand an absolute right to have a final say on that deal it is shocking it lets britain down breaks it is is a is a horrific. thing for britain and britain needs to stay in the you because britain will otherwise get much poorer and actually no bracks deal is good enough for the british people because the best deal that we've got is the one inside the european union theresa may is seeking legal changes to the withdrawal agreement in particular the irish backstop a red line for you leaders who want to guarantee that a hard to border between ireland and northern ireland be avoided at all costs to harm the to the old one salute of course we have our principles and i don't see that we will be changing it with the dollar going with again but we can certainly
9:04 pm
talk about it dish will assure and says he will. but will that be enough for may to win over support at home for now lewis political assurances and some cosmetic wording seem to be all she can get despite the empathy. fyi and our very own myself and he is following the talks force in brussels leading to you max we understand the german chancellor angela merkel she has said that and i'm quoting here we can talk about additional assurances i mean what does that mean what can the e.u. now give theresa may to take home. assurances are nothing that are part of a legal text so she's also excluding basically that the withdrawal agreement that was just mentioned in the report by law so to speak there will be reopened so we're talking about the political declaration which is supposed to outline the future relationship between the u.k. and the european union they need to find something to satisfy the critics back home in the u.k. for theresa may so they're probably trying to figure out together what that could
9:05 pm
be they have an informant here at that summit normally is just a recent may saying something about her situation then she has to leave the room and the e.u. twenty seven so the other leaders discussed their point of view this time in between those segments they have question and answers with theresa may the u.k. prime minister so that's new maybe is to find out if there is anything in the wording in that cosmetic wording in those reassurances that might be enough for her to save the deal back in london and that's an it's an interesting point and max if they use additional assurances if they are not enough what will happen then. well look brant look at the room behind me there we can take a look here you have hundreds of journalists you have experts you have spin doctors even have politicians coming here from the e.u. parliament you know what they have in common nobody knows what's going to happen the only thing that we do know is that one upson is off the table since wednesday
9:06 pm
night which is her party at least has confidence in her more or less so that means theresa may is going to remain prime minister at least if it comes down to her party everything else is still on the table second referendum. hard breck's it maybe even that it will pass at some point in january and i would be lying if i said to you that i know what's going to happen i mean i heard someone say earlier today describing what happened yesterday in london for theresa may the theresa may have walked through hell and that she would be happy to be in brussels today how or are domestic troubles how are they being seeing where you are in the context of grex. you heard the dutch prime minister in that report i just mentioned he said he wasn't a mire of to reason may that might be a little exaggerated for some of the other leaders but they are happy that there is only one person they need to talk to only one prime minister and that they don't have to deal with another prime minister now that will probably take weeks to choose you don't know his position so that would have been definitely
9:07 pm
a huge problem for the deadline that we are running up against which of course is the twenty ninth of march two thousand and nineteen that's the braggs a date and if they had to deal with the new prime minister would have been very hard to meet that deadline even with the current prime minister it's very tough all right next off and yet again you sum up for us tonight we'll see how long this one goes max thank you very much. if there's another big story of you summer tonight stephen beardsley is you're going to talk about europe keeping up the pressure on russia that's right bret's leaders extending economic sanctions against russia for another six months citing the ongoing conflict with ukraine now the sanctions target russia's financial energy and defense sectors the ukraine russia conflict flared up again last month when russian forces seized re ukrainian vessels and twenty four crew members as they tried to pass through the carrot straight from the black sea to the sea of us all some e.u. members of called for new sanctions as

9:09 pm
traditional waters we don't get to this a total catch as whole decided by them and we feel that the european boats touch more than our wars and no escutcheon of them or. may is about britain will become an independent coastal state free to catch what it wants and negotiate access to its waters plan calls for the country to remain in a transition phase lasting at least twenty one months during that time it will continue to obey e.u. fisheries. rules. the fishermen pitching me was skeptical that the deal will lead to an independent fisheries policy. as a cool as a bargaining chip officials say that they are all looking at the bigger businesses cut imports by us we are just going on the hunt for the government officials a bargaining chip. the catch is predominately exported to the e.u. members like france the netherlands and spain which could impose tariffs on such imports if britain doesn't grant a fisherman continued access to its post bricks fortis. and staying with
