a fundamentally different withdrawal deal if she wants a third parliamentary vote thomas. and new zealand remembers the victims of the christ church attack. local students or look at that by performing the haka a traditional marriage ceremony that is. i'm phil go welcome to the program we'll start with breaking news police in the netherlands arrested a suspect in connection with the killing of three people in the city of trekked five of us were wounded in the shooting of a tram on monday morning following the shooting police released a photo of the thirty seven year old turkish born suspect identifying him as a man tanis authorities are now say they're looking into whether the shooting was what they just. a slave relationship crime terrorism has not been ruled out.
7:02 pm
straight to track then when we joined t.w. correspondent back britain welcome rebecca so police say they have. pretended thomas what do we know about him and his motives. that's right phil little a little over thirty minutes ago we got the news that police here in the trade had apprehended. thomas the thirty seven year old from turkey. we don't know that much about him at this stage still he we know that he's known to police that they were aware of him that they have quite a back catalog a big file on him so he is not unknown to police but the more a more details are still yet to come out police are not ruling out tara even though as you mentioned it is looking more and more as it may have been a family dispute what do we know about the victims.
7:03 pm
news about the victims is still coming out we know that they downgraded the number of wounded victims slightly earlier today from nine to five that's five victims wounded but the death toll remains at three unfortunately we don't know one of the victims we do believe was a relative of government tanous. the details are still unclear at this stage so talk us through the sequence of events through. word add around ten forty five this morning phil local time police were alerted to an incident happening on this tram behind me they got to the scene and a man fled from the scene all the details that were very unclear as to what had happened there was reports of shooting there were the fatalities and the wounded the number of wounded were not known for some time so there was
7:04 pm
a lot of confusion as to what had actually happened on the tram eyewitnesses spoke of domestic domestic disputes there's an argument i heard one man say that he could see the suspect holding down somebody on the tram but that was all just eyewitness reports then it basically triggered what became a seven seven hour manhunt through the city of new track so the city and the region was put on the highest state of alert what is the situation there. that's right the city was put on the highest alert which is five that was just trashed the rest of amsterdam remained at level four the reason for that was because the suspect was at large and police weren't entirely sure of his. motives and they also got word of other incidences so they weren't sure if they were there was a sort of coordinated attack happening so they lifted the threat level that level
7:05 pm
has now been brought back. down to a level four in line with the rest of the country about rich as a neutral thank you. the speaker of britain's parliament has ruled out the u.k. government holding another vote on its previously rejected cream and if the motion remains substantially the same john bercow says parliamentary presence mean the government must change the deal if they bring it back within the same session of parliament areas. what the government cannot legitimately do is to resubmit to the house the same proposition or substantially the same proposition as that of last week which was rejected by one hundred fourteen. this ruling should not be regarded as my last word on the subject it is simply meant to indicate that test which the government must meet in
7:06 pm
order for me to rule that a third meaningful vote can legitimately be held in this parliament precession. because barbara faisal who's in london outside houses of parliament welcome barbara what are the implications of this ruling. the implications are at first glance huge for trees made because the speaker has effectively said i do not allow you to ease a mate and to bring back this same pricks it deal with the european union the sabers droll egremont that you first presented in november that was voted on in january and rejected that was built on again last week and rejected i will not allow you to bring it back for a third time unless it is substantially changed unless there is not the element
7:07 pm
that makes that makes sense in the way that parliament should actually then to get in on this is same proposal so that's what he said and that is really put really put a spanner in the works for two reason may's plans she didn't mention that he wanted to bring the vote back tomorrow than there was the idea she would bring back bring it back on wednesday but she's still looking for a majority and she's still looking for approval of the northern irish do you and then hoping that her hard line breaks and cheers will fall nine ok not for the first time if going against the prime minister but that never stops does this mean that she will not snark presents they still to politics. it is relatively likely however you new feel that where there is a lawyer there is a solution of curry sent is soon more useful the government have a said that there might be a possibility too to simply end this session of parliament prematurely it would
7:08 pm
basically run till the summer when the normal summer break takes place at but they could somehow they have a procedure in the session of parliament prematurely then they could reconvene on the bench and. they could circumvent what the speaker said the question however is even though if that is doable with regard to procedure where does that leave political legitimacy i mean there was enough. problems over the weekend and large discussions about trees in may it's bringing break the banks into their breaks a deal over and over again in order let's vote on it until finally i like the result and i have found the majority i need for this which seems a doubtful if you look at it from a democratic perspective still so it's basically possible to circumvent this by will she do it does make sense politically that's unclear tourism a was due to
7:09 pm
speak. you know she didn't so far because of course she needed thinking time she now needs to figure out where she's going to go next and she needs to sit down maybe tonight with some of her advisors and somehow figure out what's the way out of this new impasse i mean we've seen bracks it is one in past after the other we would hardly saw it as possible that there should be significant new would turn interests in this saga but there is this we have now found out and did so basically what she can do she does have some options of course she can go to the european union on thursday and say sorry folks this but this early wrong and i need an extension she could ask for a short extension in order to sort out for problems in parliament and then for a longer extension after that means anything is possible in the months she could even was brought to kill fifty and say let's start over again and so we don't know
7:10 pm
yet at this point what which way she's going to choose which remedies she is probably going to find to sort of still come on the first is this new problematic situation. you said that right phil she is still falling from one problem into the next and she seems to have a really unlucky hand with regard to bricks and brought to tears. were very keen on the difference between a small delay and a big delay. of article fifty. for the bricks and cheers a long delay is clear it means that breaks it might never happen again because if a second different name comes in the british public is exhausted from bricks if they don't want to hear about it anymore they might just turn and say we don't want to see any more down was break said that it's possible and fold them they would
