this is the w. new small i got from berlin tonight another nail biter vote in the british parliament teresa mayes government survives a no confidence vote just twenty four hours ago the british prime minister's bright studio was overwhelmingly rejected by parliament today she won a confidence vote by a margin of just nineteen now she's about wanting to work with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to make the right sit mean rex.
i bring golf it's good to have you with us there were nasty names but no nasty surprises for theresa may today the british prime minister has survived a no confidence vote in the u.k. parliament. on how to see the next to the last three hundred twenty five so the names. that those came in just a day after british lawmakers rejected a teresa mayes breaks a deal by a huge majority the biggest government's defeat in the country's modern political history but many m.p.'s who oppose that deal were not prepared to back. in the demise of teresa mayes government the prime minister addressed parliament just as.
the results of the no confidence vote for its holder mr speaker i'm pleased that this house house expressed its confidence in the gulf and. i do not take this responsibility likely and my government will continue its work to increase our prosperity guarantee our security i'm just trying to show you here and yes we will also continue to work to deliver on the so much promise we made to the people of this country to deliver on the results of the referendum and the. incredible twenty four hours in the political history of the u.k. but also in the political career of theories of may to talk about that i'm joined here at the big table by our very own reporter charlotte shells and bill show is good to see you i mean it's mind boggling when you think about what theresa may has gone through what the government has gone through what parliament has gone through in the last twenty four hours she survived this no confidence vote tonight. does that mean though that she can still govern well many people are asking especially
people internationally watching this unfold in the united kingdom how is it possible that this prime minister is still standing given the fact that she lost that vote all have breaks a deal yes they have by such an enormous mansion a historic mansion and that under any other circumstances as you said she'd be ounce of a job but nice she keeps on ploughing on and the challenge is still mounting against her she cannot get support for that breaks a deal that she hasn't said a compromise she's trying to walk a fine line between those not just within her own party but within parliament as a whole he was either more in favor of remain or do you think she should have gone much farther with a deal and gone for more of a hard bragg's it's a less alignment with the european union she's found clady at this line of compromise isn't watching because no one's happy and i mean no one's happy and when you get when you look at the margin of victory tonight ninety. team vote i mean
when he came across there was this collective in the newsroom but should we be so surprised i mean we expected to survive we didn't expect a big margin did we well it doesn't seem like a lot but of course the opposition we're going to vote against so they want to govern themselves they clearly think that they can do better job there are a lot of them they voted against it what it does show though is that a lot of her own m.p.'s within her in party they voted for her that you know you could have argued wasn't necessarily a guarantee because they showed yesterday in overwhelming numbers that they don't like her deal we also saw is that the party that's propping her up in government the d. they said that they were going to vote for her today it appears they have they will say dio they always i would like answered it there's a lot of them correct so she it just goes to show that maybe it's not reason may that everybody has a problem with it's. she and because of that she is meeting with leaders of all the
parties tonight we understand in trying to find common ground so that's what she's got to do at home and she also has to take whatever they can agree to and present it to the european union in brussels doesn't she hyun the european union has made clear that it thinks that the deal that's on the table to resume a deal is the best possible compromise so a lot of people are now asking the question well what is her next means she has rule downs in the last twenty four hours once again that she doesn't want to make any major changes to her deal for example it's been it's been mooted it's been suggested that she could go towards a softer bret's that that would mean for example having the u.k. staying inside the customs union the trade union from the from the european union she's ruled that out and of course if she wanted to go for that option that would involve a major renegotiation with the european union there's nothing to say that perhaps because they might be in favor of a soft break that they wouldn't go for it. what it does mean is that the the time
is running out now for a deal to be struck is just ten weeks before the united kingdom leaves the european union they need to have a deal all that just simply going to crush out without one there has been at least one report this evening that the european union is signaling that it is for period to delay breaks it until twenty twenty we can't confirm that there's only one report of that but if that report is out there is that where we're headed this week is maybe her asking for a delay march twenty ninth is around the corner there have been has been speculation growing that said the european that the u.k. exit from your union will be delayed let me just give you an idea of how that would work exactly the you know united kingdom would have to offer that to happen and then all twenty seven members the remaining members of the european union would have to then agree it if it was for the right reasons if that happened signals that your opinion would agree to do that and just with that deadline for the u.k.
leave in your opinion getting so close and the dangers that are involved in an idea of both european union and the united kingdom it does look like that could be where we're headed let's take this story now to london or barber of easels she is standing by as she has been doing for the past couple of evenings good evening to you barbara i mean this was a close result this new confidence vote. how does it look from where you're standing tonight. it shows that of course it's happening what we expect that juries a maze own party would sort of reality and pull everybody together and say ok we want her still in government because what it means had they not done that they would have lost power probably because it's not certain that they would win the next election if there were to be one so this was just a simple self-preservation that prevailed this evening and it's not really about
trees of may it's about staying in government it's about the tories sort of keeping their hold on power and they are absolutely building under all circumstances to do that and that is the only reason that they keep on so if we're texting and carrying and guarding theresa may in office because there is nobody else who wants to dirty their hands at the moment was the problematic situation and so she is safe from all this and even if she can't really move much even if she's incredibly weak and saffold and they can't really go forward the charges will still keep her in office just to guard car. immediately after the results were announced so a bit of this no confidence vote to the head of labor jeremy corbett he drew a line in the sand and said that he wanted to the prime minister to guarantee that a no deal breaks it is off the table is there something that she is going to be
able to do. no of course she can't because how can she do that because she is still a cartoon this sort of circle off not having a majority in parliament for her deal is on the one side not being rebuilding really to alter and change her deal substantially on the other side so how can she do that however we know that one of the tory remain or is one of the pro european tories dummett green is going to table emotion next monday when trees mais expected back in column and it was her so-called plan b. and that will then ask the house do you vote for would you vote down no deal would you say that we do not want to no deal and then might be very well majority for that so paul newman is moving that in that direction and trees i'm a would then have to follow of course what about moving in the direction of a second referendum barbara are we closer to that now to resign me she definitely
looks like a wee girl leader even after surviving this no confidence vote i mean she's been known to change her mind before. has she changed her mind once she finally gets to the point where the where she feels that banging her head against the wall doesn't make sense anymore so she might in fact get to that maybe in february maybe a bit later it wouldn't it would not be very soon as some of service here in london say yes. britain has come closer to a second referendum others are still skeptical and say the jury's still have some room for maneuver and there are still some possibilities which is sort of legal out of the situation and to sort of keep grex it to guard it if the european union in fact gives britain more time than just the three months that are so seem to be basically on offer in mediately and then of course the chances for
a second referendum get to lower because then of course the government in parliament have so many more months to run in circles centered debate what they want and what they don't want that sort of the pressure is off and it would sort of be in the future so we'll see how that plays out no progress no says from this point in time from london where you know history does like to repeat itself for barber of a sort on the story for us in london and charlotte until here at the big table with me to both of you thank you. briggs it has been dominating politics in the u.k. for the last two years there's not much time left for people's everyday problems like jobs health care education and that's making many feel fed up with the brics this process. every day abdul's a fostex up the newspapers at his small london kiosk and every day he gets more and more frustrated with the headlines. each and every day if you see everybody
in that mine it's a big city what is big city like. people are suffering you know only the everybody everybody and everything in mind the first when you wake up but it's it when you sleep big city for london is the chaos over at westminster has become business as usual on tuesday the rejection of terry's amazing briggs's deal today the vote of no confidence against the prime minister. so for me is driving me crazy get on with it do it and it's and it's true what the votes it i think anything since they have i'm a set that many of my kitty caesium on my all the novela everyone know what they give you know because it's got an old fart's a real and confusing moment people especially myself people are uncertain and hum unhappy people of all ages all generations all parties or thoughts and beliefs are unhappy and uncertain and we need a bit more certainty in decision making you know it's this uncertainty which threatens apple's a far as small business most of the products in his shop come
from europe with breaks it he expects serious problems. all the business suffering because if you know exactly what will happen. what a big seat is happening on either doing i that don't believe that would be so now abdul has to wait off the rule is only one thing he can rely on another day another breaks a headline. oh here we are a long way from being finished with breaks in the developments in london of being watched with interest and amazement in brussels seventy two days to go until breaks in british the british parliament is still arguing about what kind of breaks it wants to take the story now to our own correspondent he joins me now from brussels good evening to you georg so i'm going to throw this at you georg have you heard from your sources there about an appointment a meeting a conversation that is scheduled with theresa may later this week frank
you've mentioned interest and amazement and let me add frustration and quite a bit of frustration to that i haven't heard that. the there will be an extension until twenty twenty and frankly i don't find that rather unlikely so. i think that's one of those rumors that really is not going to fly if there will be an extension for a practice that of brecht's a delay i'm think we're looking at a couple of weeks possibly months mid-summer otherwise it will endanger the european elections that are upcoming for the european parliament and is it the consensus in brussels tonight that to rescind may is going to come knocking on the door some time this week to get some badly needed adjustments to this agreement. i've i've heard from some sources that there was that they were nervous about
a plane that was ready to fly already yesterday even inc i think there is an expectation i mean the chief negotiator michel barnier has said look we're ready for renegotiations not saying we will shift all the red lines and the german chancellor has said there is time for those renegotiations i think what they mean is of course she is welcome to talk about this because let's face it breaks it heartbreaks it would have such a devastating consequences that it would be madness to say now this is a deal take it or leave it we won't talk anymore so off course brussels is open for renegotiations but it does not mean that there is a whole lot of concessions waiting for the reason may if and when she would come to respond again not just giving us the view from brussels we'll be back to talk with you later in the day georg thank you. well many pro conservatives voted against a recent days deal for leaving the e.u.
yesterday but today they backed her in that no confidence vote to avoid an election that could bring a left wing labor government to power you correspondent barbara vaghul has been speaking with one of the most outspoken breaks it hears a former junior breaks administer steve baker. as the group of conservatives in common parlance called the bricks tears help to those downed trees a maze deal on tuesday evening yes now the country seems to be in crisis so at least the government and prices parliament and prices thanks well you know what's next is this plan which we produced and published last night we've set out how to achieve a deal with the european union of the character which the european union offered us in march and repeated in the autumn so a comprehensive free trade agreement no tyrus no qualms to restrictions security cooperation range of other areas of cooperation so that's what we want people often mischaracterize us with people who would prefer to leave with an agreement of the coins that the e.u. offered us but if we can't get that agreement then we'll have to be ready to leave
on each year term so that's what's happened but i hope you won't mind me saying that since i resigned from the government i've said time and again that this deal would not go through parliament and that the result would be a crisis so in a sense on very sorry that we've reached this point but you know the government was warned that this would not work so what you saying is series of may was warned and decided to sort of carry on regardless and should she have looked for majorities much earlier in this process well yes of course but you know i sat there was a taxi a minister in the department for extremely european union and all of us sent together and told officials we needed to go for a free trade agreement based brics and a few weeks later president took off a matching agreement you know said let's have an advanced f.d.a. but then it's you know it's a matter of record it's been explained several times to officials and the prime minister's worked on a different plan which came out to check as and this is why david davis and i resigned so i'm afraid this is a council. trying to deliver a relationship something like the european economic area plus something like the
customs union on a freight conservatives who want to govern our own country outside the e.u. however much me what we may wish to be friends we wish to govern our own country outside the e.u. so. you know it's not the relationship we were going to vote for so this is why we're in this period of crisis i'm afraid i hope we can resolve it as quickly as possible so to reason may pursue something that was impossible anyway because checkers wasn't on from the side of the e.u. that never said they said they wouldn't they don't wouldn't want it and said it was cherry picking which was not an offer so now you come with this plan and say can you step back in time you would need much more time that you don't wouldn't do this overnight i mean that's a long ago shading process what you basically asking for is to go back to zero and start again is it so we're absolutely not asking to go back to zero you know again people say wrong compromising us not true i'd encourage people to download this plan have a read of it it sets out the changes we would want to the withdrawal agreement and we're ready to table legal text so you know we've even gauge with serious people to
try and be constructive we would like to hand the european union the solution to the archibald a problem so that we can rescue the withdrawal agreement agreed to find agree on pay the financial settlement league linking it to progress on the free trade agreement which michel barnier i offered the u.k. you know we're trying to be reasoned citizens' rights we need to do anyway either in accordance with a withdrawal agreement or unilaterally so we're trying to be reasonable and do the right thing but what we can't agree to is a position of being indefinitely locked into a european union that the british people chose to leave but sorry to sort of puncture this particular balloon there is no agreement on a free trade agreement was the e.u. within like two months three months four months or so that is going to take time period don't you believe that so i'm very clear that we if we leave with a set of agreements with oral agreement that we should still ask for an implementation period and we should negotiate the free. trade agreement not sign but you know we've got to be very careful how we position the difficulty or
otherwise of these negotiations but it's in all of our interests to reach a tariff and restriction free agreements and we are in a position of complete home in isolation on the relevant areas so if there's goodwill and we take the precedence of the agreements the e.u. has with particularly with canada and japan i believe it's eminently possible particularly if you forgive me saying you know germany now understands heading into technical recession france go to certain difficulties it's a lead to the use in a position where we would where it needs me to help one another we voted to leave we should go and we should go into an agreement so i think if we can rescue the withdrawal agreement by putting in place a permanent compliant and invisible solution for all and which we are ready to table and negotiate in a free trade agreements which works for soldiering the implementation period then we can exit with an agreement in place ok thank you very much thank you thank you for that are back here in studio three a broad set fallout continues with helena i'm afraid so brant essentially i mean the city of london is just bleeding jobs right now more and more european banks announcing their plans to move those
positions out of london moving them to other financial centers i mean even if briggs it hasn't actually happened yet is certainly having a very real impact on the world of banking and once a person has officially their european union will london based banks will no longer be able to conduct operations with. without they subject to a host of other regulations one reason why frankfurt has had to when it's made its own video looking to attract those fleeing the braggs it financial fallout nice to meet you the name is. frank. frank said oh i've heard of you know modern architect the video was posted online several months ago it's aimed at the family of the briggs it uprooted banker who's not so keen on moving away from a world class city like london viber not life british the. capital is europe's finance center and home to some of the world's biggest banks but to keep doing
business with the e.u. will have to be located in the block and that means more than just a shingle on a door or a mailbox at least according to european regulators. it means moving personnel and capital about forty banks have already received a license and you city. a few of them went to dublin some to luxembourg and others to paris but the vast majority around three quarters to frankfurt starting to actually believe you. were serious business. you're not easily convinced you better believe it. frankfurt is talking about ten thousand bricks that related positions moving over things could get tight in the banking quarter but the outlook for doing business in the e.u. still it's better there than from london. well here with me in the studio now is and they ask outside the c.e.o. of the association of german banks glad you could join us now your safety action is called the decease of may's deal quote
a serious warning shot to everyone involved what exactly do you mean by that it's a last warning shot because time is running out to be prepared for a new one do you know neil brooks that situation because this is the worst situation that we could imagine because there's a lot of transfer of data a lot of sign of services for customers of german banks done in london that means that over the last months to be. very hard execution on how this services could be provided in the situation of the no deal breaks it is very serious it could be very dangerous if you are not prepared so what you're saying essentially is that german banks have already been preparing for the eventuality of absolutely no deal i mean how strenuous has that been no deal means that there is no longer the legal basis for all this service is done actually on this passport think agreements which means that you don't need any additional license or so for what you're doing in london we went through all this operation the thousands of
people over the last months with all bags all customers to find out if there is no longer a legal basis like passport thing is there a need for additional alone says for licenses and the german parliament bill passed this week additional laws which entitle the banks to go on with their operations but on a preliminary basis and it is very important that the supervisors of the banks in london and in frankfurt know exactly what's going on they observe in very. concrete what's happening but sort of break this down for me we don't talking about you know sort of a massive new users money we're talking about potentially moving money from london to to germany for exam. i'm a brit of course i do banking and in different countries i mean how difficult would it be for people like me to move money how difficult would it be even just the businesses to operate without a deal it's a good example we want to do everything that there is no break in the night from
twenty not to search it's much because our customers should know realize that there is a change but you have to prepare a lot of things transfer of you you licensing and so on that all these operations can move forward and there is in this moment and these days there is an enormous transfer of capital actually not only to frankfurt but to paris to dublin because all the international banks cannot rely on the longer the existing sporting framework they bring out their operations to bring old people to the continent and bring money to the continent to be able to serve the clients the same way they do as they do it actually all right and that is couch c.e.o. of the association of german banks could have you with the thank you jim. to another brags it affects bugs it's likely to interrupt the flow of pharmaceuticals between the u.k. and the e.u. potentially causing shortages that is the warning from the german pharmaceutical
