this is the dubliners live from berlin a deal or no deal britain's parliament debates whether to crash out of the european union it's a scenario the prime minister theresa may has been working to avoid for two years now lawmakers will have that site and we have special coverage of yet another vital vote in westminster with just sixteen days before britain's schedule at. eight pm.
i'm frugal welcome to the program britain's parliament is due to deliver a second to pivotal vote on breakfast in as many days and the next to alan lomax is expected to decide whether to rule out leaving the european union on this was not a match without a deal about what's in the bank the rest of it could happen anyway but it was the trees the writer said that she would vote against a no deal with this after parliament overwhelmingly rejected the both of the deals that she goes face it with the e.u. if lawmakers votes against another deal breadsticks tonight it is likely that they will want to delay withdrawal but the e.u. says there will be no extension without clarity on the u.k.'s intentions. well here's a guy to serve the twists and turns of tonight's. events is that the doctors are
briggs it's a means to alex for as to why it's a little box that you see three that is mostly what's going on in poland to welcome alex sort of guide us through what is happening a tonight right so at the moment i'm part of the screen you can see that m.p.'s are in the chamber of the house of commons and they are walking out of the chamber because they are going off to vote now they are voting on an amendment to the government's motion tonight which is to rule out possibly a no deal brix it this is an amendment that has been put down to all to the well wording for that which is basically saying ruling out a no deal what ever happens because there were fears that although the government is offering m.p.'s the chance to roll out a no deal bricks that they're worried that the pats the government can bring it back at a later date so this is an attempt by one a few m.p.'s actually to try to make sure that this is going to bind the government
to doing that once that vote has taken place there will be a second amendment which is based to chance the conservative party trying to come together and to offer a different form of bricks it which quite frankly is not going to fly and then we go into the government's motion of rolling out a new deal price and have i completely lost you. see if i got it right there in very latest news they get it we're looking at three votes we hope we have a three two amendments on them and then they may yes ok i'm a bit which is what to recently has been forced to put forward because yet again last night she lost the vote on her deal which she had agreed with the european union with brussels back in november she lost it in january by a whopping two hundred thirty vote she lost it again last night by one hundred forty nine so now she has had to say to m.p.'s right do we leave on the twenty ninth of march. without
a deal and this is the chance for m.p.'s to say we do not want to live without today which is what the majority of m.p.'s do not want to see there are some breaks it is one u.k. to leave what ever said this is their chance to say no to leaving without a tail and then tomorrow night they will get the chance to see whether they want to delay brix it by extending article fifty so the whole notion of a no deal is important because you will because the parliament has said has thrown out both of the deals that the prime minister has put before them but they are saying it's not that we don't want nothing we just don't want what you have offered us so if they throw those two options out today but they don't want no deal i they want a deal so one of us is just to put their hands up and say ok so it's taken seriously two years to get this far and you throw that were married the next few
days has to say what about this exactly so one of the amendments is being table tonight is by the conservative party the conservative party some voted to remain some voted to leave what they are saying is we will be happy to delay projects until the twenty second twenty third of may but then whatever happens the u.k. must leave the e.u. front we will be in a transition period so nothing will change for two years also probably there is a big problem because yesterday the e.u. is chief price in negotiating michelle bonnie i said listen you are not going to get this transition period and unless you sign up to the deal and so far they do not want to sign up to the deal so that is a problem what i think we will see is from tomorrow night m.p.'s pushing forward some more amendments to say you have got to give parliament more control over this process we have to be allowed what's called in ticket. if votes to rule put
something down voted out the next idea down voted out and i think in the end we could well end up coming up with a soft bricks it that everything is completely on the table and there is still the possibility that the reason may try is to bring her back again to parliament possibly next week or so as we are in the box that is just there was saying quite empty chamber what why is that this is an important vote going oh yes if this is we think not fast amendment so they've got a first of all they don't want to focus on the first amendment they have fifteen minutes to get to a vote and they leave the chamber literally walk out of the chamber and walk through either the on ice which is yes or the nose and they are counted one by one it's very old fashioned and then they come back in and we we await the vote we listen to to who has got the whether this is pasta whether it's not passed if you
know personally probably on this amendment it's probably unlikely to pass it all goes to the shuttle we're looking at the main event happening in about what half an hour yes maybe a bit longer ok r l except for so i think we'll be our guide through this and our. yesterday's breaks that vote seem to have created more questions than it answered once again leaving both parties in politics as fractured as ever meanwhile e.u. leaders say they need clarity from london before they can entertain the possibility of delaying breck said let me just remind you britain is juice and leave the e.u. in only sixteen days that's the twenty ninth of march. recriminations after one of the biggest parliamentary defeats ever for a sitting prime minister with prime minister to resign may's bracks a deal overwhelmingly rejected for a second time in the house of commons u.k. lawmakers will have to vote on whether to leave the e.u. with no deal at all if no deal is rejected they'll vote on whether to ask the block
to delay breck's it by extending article fifty british lawmakers gave their pessimistic predictions. more chaos. literally. chaotic at the moment parliament doesn't know what it wants parliament can't make up its mind on anything i know that we only have sixteen days left it does seem like we are absolutely at the end of the road but we will keep trying until the last moments and we will ask for extra time if we need to in order to have another referendum or frankly if this government can't govern we need another government so we should have a general election. some politicians want a decision now without delay even if that means the u.k. crashing out without a deal. i will not support any kind of prolongation if we get a clarification from the petition site what they want to achieve because it's a basic problem they have no my charity in favor of anything they only have only my treaties against innocence but if they don't give you a clarification and ask for an extension you know. just.
to minimise trade disruptions in the event of no deal the government now says it would not impose tariffs on most goods entering the u.k. but british businesses have also reached the end of their tether. businesses here in the u.k. are you saying enough is enough last night's parliamentary vote needs to be the last of the parliamentary shenanigans that been going on for the last two and a half years because we need to remember that jobs and livelihoods are on the line with this deal. though it's just over two weeks until the bracks a deadline practically nothing is certain. ok so the u.k. going through yet another crunch photo gets crunch crunch crunch. as we get towards the president live here with me in the studio president analyst alex forrest watching outside the house of commons in london is that they don't correspondent
barbara so barbara as we face yet another vote this week what is the mood tonight. the mood of course is expected in a way but then also there is a lot of frustration even here in britain not only on the european side where you leaders have voiced their corn cern's and also a certain amount of anger since yesterday but even here because it's still seems to be the case that instead of concentrating the mind last night's vote the second big defeat for two reason may for her withdrawal dear still didn't bring out the sense of togetherness the sense of looking for consensus and walk going forward and now finding sort of reasonable and viable solutions that would work for go science in the house of parliament here but instead the squabbling sort of carries on and of course now this taking
a new deal vote off the table is an important thing that's an important step because so far the brics the tears all of us have emphasized oh we need this we need this to strengthen the e.u. and then at the last moment they're going to give in and then they go into sort of then finally handles the last concessions the one says we want about the irish tax up that is not going to happen to reason may has understood that now and so she is even backing this but it is like it is slow an incremental move away from the edge of the cliff two words what in the end needs to be a negotiated solution and. in agreement that will sort of have an orderly and guarantee an orderly exit for britain in a bar but you spent a lot of time walking the corridors of brussels on the question of an extension do you detect any shift in attitudes among lawmakers.
there is a shift of attitude in the sense that even lawmakers are of course more frustrated about what happens here what they have to watch and there is of course a certain shift of attitude in lawmakers in britain the sense that they now see that this cannot go indefinitely that they will eventually have to stop squabbling and somehow sit down together and figure out where the future lies and what the powers to that future is so the question of the extension that has been so incredibly calm tensions for so long and that some of the demonstrators that you see here and maybe even here in the back of us who are just yelling to their heart's content for hours and some of them are yelling de lay is betrayal that is the point that just has to be has to be overcome because time has run out theresa
may has run down the clock on this to no effect to to to to to just deliver a second defeat for her last night and now there has to be another pos and in extension is pretty much the only way to go forward because otherwise there's no time for anything all right barbara very. good for now i thank you you're watching special coverage. live from but we're covering what's going on in the british parliament which is that they are voting again today. on a practitioner and this is whether or not they should take no deal off the table three votes or expect. what has already happened this is amendments they'll be another remembers and then the big vote will bring that city you live as it happens in the mean time we will look at what is going on elsewhere around the world will start in nigeria where emergency workers in the case in the business capital lagos say that several people have died after a multi-story a building containing
a school collapsed the tragedy happened in the city it's a foggy area scores of people including children and feel trapped in the rubble are the top floor of the building house to private elementary school with about one hundred students. and it's the chaos and confusion one boy pulled out alive but many more feared trapped in the rubble. local authorities say the building housing a private elementary school and a nursery on the top floor of a residential apartment block collapsed late morning with around a hundred students inside attending class. of sawdust passing by i was just passing by and i heard a building had collapsed with people living inside so i had to come and rescue and help them to make it to the hospital. from the water just due to the. rescue operations on the way but the emergency services say their efforts of being
complicated by how densely populated the area is they've been on able to cordon off lots of parts of it. with around twenty million people and growing lagos is one of the biggest cities on the african continent. it was not immediately see why the building collapsed but such incidents are not uncommon in nigeria critics say they often caused by on scrupulous investors cutting corners on materials or private being paid for building permits. and be done because one of hundred shots is at the site of the building collapse and she's been talking to emergency personnel and residents. more and more people are coming here to see all this rescue efforts are ongoing many of them have been here since early this morning and many are saying that they are going to stay here overnight because they want to see and witness themselves if people and children especially who are believed to be on that is troubling the great number of being pulled alive from underneath that rubble now according to the state governor who was here this afternoon about twenty five
people have been already pulled from below that rubble but some of them with that he said. if you look at this crowd not just people standing by it's also relatives. all of those people was there on the mr robert especially parents of course not very much worried about their children they want to know where they are and they want to know whether they make it out alive. for the child or forcing it from lagos nice or some of those stories making news around the world the u.s. federal judge has sentenced former trump campaign chairman paul manifold three and a half years in jail on conspiracy charges that's in addition to a four year sentence for tax and bank fraud the new york court is also indicted him on numerous fresh charges. police in brazil say ten people are dead after a shooting at an elementary school in south out of two people will see it entering the building and firing weapons the shooters are amongst the deadly one news agency
reports on that they turned that guns on themselves. u.s. backed forces in syria have shelled the final strip of territory held by circled the islamic state in the town of. report described the jihad is being cornered in a seven hundred m.b. to cluster bombed out buildings i'm three thousand jihadi stuff surrendered to the mainly kurdish forces since monday. now let's return to our top story we're covering live events in the british parliament you're looking at the speaker speaker boehner. a vote has just been taken so let's just listen in. for this alex. alex so far as why yes so. can i tell you just what's happening to members so they've moved on to the second amendment they voted on the first amendment which was about taking no deal
completely off the table and. it has actually poss so there's a lot of excitement from those m.p.'s who do not want that to be and no deal bricks it on twitter one of the merry creasing we have defeated the p.m.'s motion no deal is off the table so this is quite significant because many people didn't think that this would necessarily get through because the government itself was saying that they didn't want their own ministers to or their own party members even to vote for it however it is still got through now i don't know what the results are yet because unfortunately we couldn't hear the actual result but that is significant no m.p.'s of voting on this second amendment this is the one we were talking about the so-called malthouse agreement and it's basically a conservative plan to say we're going to leave the e.u. on the twenty second twenty third of may whatever happens and we will go into
a transition deal with the e.u. and everything is going to be great but we already know that michel barnier a only yesterday he's the e.u.'s chief negotiator has said you cannot have a transition day a deal without a deal with us so that is not going to fly even if the commons tonight vote for it ok let's bring in barbara via. the house of parliament a lot of people are going to be looking at this around the world and just asking themselves what is. going on in britain why does parliament seem to be in open revolt against the prime minister. it is not really a result against the prime minister even though it is i mean it is it's a complicated procedural thing in parliament that this first vote has passed that is the vote rigidity had been tabled by the opposition and obviously a number of tories moderate tories have supported it it is the stronger of the
motions that were on the table tonight and so it is pasta and there wasn't a big cheer went up behind me in that camp of the pro europe for testers that are in my back that people was the blue and yellow flags that we could probably see back there in the distance and it is in a way of course another slap for treason may because she had her own motion on the table a government motion that was similar of a big week or a big vaguer maybe to take no deal off the table and so the opposition has passed and that is down the bed for the prime minister in a way and of course we have camera teams here all around us from all over the world from all countries and continents and everybody is trying to explain what is happening in the house of parliament behind us here and how difficult and complicated the way for which august the bracks is more rests is for british
government and parliamentarians and lawmakers to spring and explore swashing on this you know we've we've got the numbers for the vote so basically the government lost that vote by just four vote so three hundred twelve voted for the amendment which was to say take whatever happens take no deal off the table and three hundred eight voted against that gish how divided the house of commons is also what's interesting about that was it was a rich and he supposed to be moved by a conservative. m.p. she said at the last minute she didn't want to move it but a labor m.p. stood up and said that she wanted to move it instead because there is a lack of faith in the government that they are really going to remove this no deal they're really going to take it off the table now at the moment as it still stands the u.k. will leave the e.u. on the twenty ninth of march with or without a deal so even though m.p.'s have voted against a no deal bricks it still they would have to be a change of tone
a change of parliament a piece of legislation that would have to be laid down to say that they are not going to leave without a deal on the twenty ninth of march but this is a very strong sign that that basically the m.p.'s don't want to leave even though it's only party for votes ok so that was that that was the first of a was a remember that was the first so there were three votes that was the first of three for us watching the fact that we'll return to you in due course so those of votes in the course of the next we'll go there live here on d w another news a course in australia has sentenced a former vatican treasurer to six years in prison cardinal george pell once a close adviser to pope francis was found guilty of molesting two choir boys in the cathedral and he's been he's the most senior clergyman to be convicted of child sex abuse. a satanic priest protestors outside melbourne's
courthouse view cardinal george pell seen here arriving from jail for sentencing the judge handed him a six year prison term. you may if the want you to control the situation by reason of your authority as archbishop whether or not that belief was well founded such a state of mind would have been extraordinarily arrogant. but the offending which the jury has found you having. was on any view breathtakingly. in december the court found guilty of sexually abusing two thirteen year old boys in nine hundred ninety six one of them later dr for heroin overdose. meanwhile rose through the ranks at the vatican attaining its third highest position. he maintains his innocence and plans to appeal the verdict a lawyer for the surviving victim read a statement. has acknowledged what was inflicted upon.
however there is no risk. in the face of widespread public outrage the vatican has launched an internal investigation but it refuses to comment on the case until the appeal process is finished. you bring some breaking news canada and the united states have joined other countries including boeing seven three seven planes following sunday's fatal crash in ethiopia the move boxes if it's significant. to allow the passenger jets to continue to operate canada's transport minister. justified the decision by saying that new satellite tracking data suggested similarities between some things crash a month five months ago featuring the same. u.s. president donald trump also. with this statement. will go to its destination and thereafter be grounded until further notice so planes are in
the air will be grounded. if they have the seven thirty seven max will be grounded upon landing at the destination. pilots have been notified. airlines have been all notified airlines are agreeing with this the safety of the american people in all people is our paramount concern. our hearts go out to all of those who lost loved ones to their friends to their families and both the the opi and the lyon airlines crashes that involved the seven thirty seven max aircraft. let's get more from the opposite side so stephen visit welcome steve what's behind this sudden change well the f.a.a. just released a statement on this phil and here's what they had to say they said that as a result of the data gathering process and new evidence collected at the site and analyzed today that's the reason for this evidence together with newly refined satellite data available to f.a.a.
this morning led to the decision so it might seem like this is a decision that president trump just pulled out and said we're going to do this on my order but the f.a.a. here is saying that we actually have the evidence that is now changing minds here we don't know exactly what that is you mentioned the canadian satellite data this statement suggests that that might be a part of that as well looking at the vertical profiles of the planes involved in those two crashes vertical profile well i should say that basically how these planes went up and down and sort of how they moved what they saw was the nose was going up and then suddenly it started to go down into a nosedive both. that sort of information that i would guess as it has been available for right from the start so to the outside observer it looks as though this is somebody covering themselves by saying we've had new new evidence but this i'm guessing this has been available all the time well i think what we've seen in the public sphere is that there has been slowly the secretion of anecdotal evidence right and so we knew that after the lion air crash there was talk about the plane
going into a nosedive and then some concerns by pilots about the system that controlled how that nose went up and down and then we've heard other pilots coming out in recent days saying yes they've had similar problems and so yeah we've seen this anecdotal evidence coming but the f.a.a. considers itself the gold standard of aviation regulators and they say that they haven't seen conclusive evidence so you know we can second guess this but we also have to wait and see what the full picture is that they present i think what's interesting is that you know on both sides of the atlantic you see this void of information rights and so on one side. countries have said we're going to do. board of information and we're going to say a stop to all planes and on the other side they've said the board information shows that we don't have enough proof to say that there's something wrong with the plane and so i think you also see a difference in regulatory behavior on in the u.s. compared to europe and other countries in asia for example who were much more proactive so it's where are we now in terms of in terms of bounds on these planes
flying it's not yet a worldwide bomb is it no it's not yet a global ban it's hard to imagine after the f.a.a. weighs in that it's not that other countries are going to continue flying this i mean as of now with the u.s. with the u.s. coming in on this this means that pretty much every country that flies this plane has shut it down this was a major outlier country so where does this leave boeing now a good place right if they're talking on new evidence that was found that supports the believe that these two crashes are related that it's a structural problem with the plane itself. and that's bad news for them because they have outstanding orders in forty six hundred of these planes and if you're an airline you're obviously not going to be taking orders or deliveries of these planes can't fly them so this puts incredible pressure on them to resolve this issue and to resolve it fast we've already seen obviously they've they've suffered in the stock markets taking huge losses so it's going to be rough and does anyone have any estimates as to when we will hear something more conclusive. it's hard to
say you know we know the black boxes have been retrieved right now other than that it's hard to say exactly what the turn around this will be depends on how much information they can extract all fast they can extract it and the full investigation will probably take a long time maybe over a year probably to actually compress that but to make corrections it could be a lot faster if there is something wrong with this plane thank you so much. i will say the united states justice department has charged fifty mostly wealthy parents with fraud after they cheated to get their children into elite american universities like yell stanford and georgetown those charges include c.e.o.'s of major companies and hollywood stars at celebs that they conspired to falsify records and bribe college officials. felicity huffman is one of the well known faces linked to the twenty five million dollars scam together with dozens of others
