this is deja vu news live from berlin it's this deal or may not even happen at all those are the words of the claude juncker appearing alongside theresa may a late night press conference warned there will be no third chance for the new conditions enough to win over the support of the british parliament and a vote later today also coming out. algeria is ailing president says he will not seek a fifth term this move comes following mass protests next month's elections have
7:01 am
also been delayed raising concerns about the country's political stability. and on the trail of kenya's sandrock high demand in the construction industry has led to environmental damage and a number of deaths in the rural areas where sands being collected. i'm brian thomas a warm welcome to the show prime minister theresa may has struck a deal to revise the terms of britain's divorce from the european union but it is unclear whether she's done enough to win over parliament with about three weeks to go until the deadline the prime minister made a last minute trip to britain france for talks with european commission president john claude younker there she clinched changes to her plan lawmakers are due to vote on them later today of london. well european commission president john claude
7:02 am
younger agreed to the changes during the strasburg meeting but warned that there would be no third chance the main change may secured concerned the future of the border for northern ireland the so-called backstop. see to guarantee that there will never be. this absolutely right on this the u.k. solid commitments in the belfast good friday agreement but if we ever have to use that insurance policy it cannot become a permanent arrangement i just know the template for our future relationship. the deal that m.p.'s voted on in january was not strong enough to make that clear and legally binding changes we needed to set that right today we have agreed to the. and joining us now from london is dean of hughes bagot moss and max hawkins covering events for us in strasburg welcome to both of you good morning bigotry
7:03 am
some a sounding very positive about what did she get in brussels from the e.u. to win over the british parliament. she is sounding very positive because she has to this is really crunch time for treason may only if really days and weeks to bragg's it and she really has to get something through how have paula meant here at home and what she says is something that's legally binding so she puts a positive spin on it but what she has not gotten is the reopening of the withdrawal agreement so the whole comes to text that regulates the future between the u.k. and the european union and this is something that's many people here in london that we have seen very skeptic about the backs of process have been demanding so the question really is what she has secured with this be enough to get havea through parliament and it will be voted on later on today in what's going to be a nail biting session here and care max over to you in strasburg where the changes
7:04 am
were hammered out apparently what does the e.u. make of this agreement. or the e.u. has many voices brian but john crow junkers seems to think that this is it this is the last chance he said there was a second chance there will be no thirteen chance and this is a different kind of tone than we've heard in the past because the commission the e.u. commission that is in charge of negotiating this agreement on behalf of the european union said they were always open for talks although they didn't budge that much now it really depends on what the member states do because they are wholesale part of the european union of course but they have already said they will follow the lead of ireland because ireland will have to deal with all the consequences to avoid this hard border between northern ireland and ireland it's a clear. is that the commission had close contact with sick in ireland it seems that the irish are on board so probably the rest of the e.u.
7:05 am
will follow the lead of ireland here ok begin a new tone there we just heard from brussels what happens if parliament fails to pass the deal later today. if parliament fails to possibly exit deal and this is going to be interesting that marx was mentioning ireland because i think a lot of m.p.'s here in london will follow the lead of the northern irish members of of parliament of the d u p so you know arlen is really at the center of this disagreement over the future of northern ireland and the future of the u.k. and the european union if this deal fails to get through it's really interesting to see by what margin because last time treason may try to get a similar deal through the house of parliament she does by over two hundred votes that's a lot if she loses by less she might have maybe by only about fifty or a little more she might try to get a true against her parliament but that would be at some point in the future first
7:06 am
of all there's going to be more votes here in london to reason may has promised that m.p.'s will get a chance to exclude a new deal exit of the u.k. from the european union crashing out without any agreement at the end of march that m.p.'s can exclude and if that's then gets through the house of m.p.'s make clear they don't want to crash out without any deal then there will be a vote on a possible extension of the whole withdrawal process so that's the reason they would then be instructed by parliament to go to the european union and ask for an extension ok so this is a crucial week for bracks a max the e.u. commission president john clarke youngers said that if parliament and one fails to back this bracks a plan as it now stands there might be no bricks at all. right and it's all connected to what they did just said because if they don't back this deal but at the same time they want to avoid
7:07 am
a no deal drugs and what does it mean it might even mean a second referendum or new elections and that of course is the worst case scenario for hard drugs to tears they might be willing to swallow this agreement if it means that they can still have their brags and avoid no brags it because you don't know what's going to be the result of a second referendum if it really takes place so this is zone clode younger the president of the e.u. commission building up even more pressure for this crucial vote in the house of commons on tuesday what really happens afterwards we don't know but this is this is really the kind that's the important part we've been steering towards this for two years and all sides are trying to build up pressure as much as possible and in the case of jointly juncker in order to force the house of commons to pass this deal with to successful or not we'll see later in the day max often force and strasburg and big moss rose and one very. good work there for both of you bring us up to date
7:08 am

7:12 am
a figure in december so this is not. in use in you suggestion and use solution to scold the ongoing crisis. they were trying to build a new consensus within the regime in the comments so the suggestion of a national conference of consensus is not more than a political maneuver to stay in power and to keep things on what was behind the decision to postpone april's presidential election. it's important to have a look at the the way how the as you're in regime is working we're not talking about a dictatorship we're not talking about an autocratic regime we're talking about a semi automatic within composed of several wings and what we're witnessing for quite a while is a power struggle between several of these wings so when we could look it was if you elected in two thousand and fourteen these wings couldn't agree on another candidates or put the future was kind of an emergency solution because they
