10:02 pm
most lawmakers oppose her deal with brussels but they also don't want britain to leave without an agreement together. while the prime minister face the facts there is little support for a deal or no deal in this house the prime minister is frozen in feel you're asking m.p.'s to write a blank check for hardline fault breaks but if the prime minister attempts a no deal brits it we will fight tooth and nail every inch of the word labor is clear the deal is not in the national interest it doesn't come anywhere near meeting outer it will make the country poor and divided it won't protect jobs in the economy the new majority for any proposition on a future relationship with the european union in this house of commons except the majority of it is clearly against leaving with no deal. in a second defeat for terrorism a in the space of two days members of parliament voted to make the government
10:03 pm
quickly come up with an alternative if may's deal is rejected next week that would not be the end of it and we've also been looking at how parliament can take a greater role as we take these negotiations on to the next stage and so i can tell the house that in the event that our future relationship or alternative arrangements are not ready by the end of twenty twenty parliament we'll have a vote on whether to seek to extend the implementation period feelings are running high and a superior prominent conservative lawmaker in favor of britain remaining in the european union was abused outside parliament this week by hecklers who accused her of being a nazi. with the close down to threats at the end of march divisions are as wide as ever and pays a due to vote on may's deal next tuesday. i want to bring in quintile he is an associate fellow of the international think tank chatham house in london quint it's
10:04 pm
good to see you again so what did we see happen today in parliament so i mean is this the parliament trying to reassert its authority over a brakes a plan that no one seems to be able to agree on yes that's precisely what it is it's a real struggle for control of the process between the parliamentarians of both parties across the middle of parliament and a government that has been constantly denied it itself and doesn't have a majority the trouble is that part that in the british system government always has a slightly stronger hand the parliament said parliament is really fighting a guerrilla war to try and maneuver itself into a position where it can actually dictate to the government the road ahead and this road is very very difficult because as you said in your report that it doesn't look
10:05 pm
as if there's a majority in the parliament but any particular outcome and it made me that they going to be reduced to horror of horrors actually even holding a second referendum and it's expected that next week when parliament votes on teresa mayes withdrawal plan it's expected that lawmakers are going to reject that so how does today's action how does that fit into that. well what in fact the reason may have been trying to do have two weeks is really friday to members of parliament into voting for the deal she's agreed with the rest of the earth to release by saying the only alternative to this deal is crashing out with no the told and then pull governments horses and many other people have been underlining just bad crashing you know with no deal would be enormous queues at the

border lorries backed up in traffic jams across all the major ways but also airplanes not taking medicines in short supply even crude running out of said horror stories right across the border now suddenly two reason man is being faced by parliament and we've said we're not prepared to accept this there is a clear majority that says we have not prepared to crash out without a deal you've got to come back with a clear plan b. which isn't just no deal said that's really the instructions he got today and we know when it takes two to tango in the european union he has said all along that the deal to go share with theresa may dance the deal and that's it do you know in u.k. parliamentarian's do they realize they are fact. yes but i think that they've also got quite a clear message from the rest of the european union that if there is a fundamental reason for a delay that's to say either
10:07 pm
a general election or. a second vote a referendum or even perhaps there's simply isn't time to get the legislation through parliament those are all valid reasons to delay the date of actually leaving the european union from march the twenty ninth and i think in those circumstances that would be acceptable it's still got to be a unanimous vote of the other twenty seven but i think that's more likely what i don't think they would do is say ok you can have more time to try to resolve the internal divisions of the government of the british conservative party that i think they would just put their foot i would say forget it yeah it's an issue that remains unresolved that is for sure quintile feller with chatham house joining us tonight from london when as always we appreciate your insights thank you. well the court in istanbul has sentenced every foreigner who works for the w.
