john bercow ruled out a three peat vote on prime minister teresa mayes bracy plan he said you just can't vote on the same measure more than once cited examples going back all the way to sixteen zero for the same year y.d. began of the king james version of the bible well tonight the prime minister is reportedly furious and britain is set to crash out of the european union in just eleven days but those against breaks it they may now have more than just a prayer after all i broke off in berlin this is the day. the government can all of the g eight summit we do these two recent make to the house the same proposition for substantially the same proposition mr speaker that this has to be unprecedented the price is that it's not the country went to the u.s.
. in eleven days on their business. i'm always inclined to say day. i don't in the business of panicking myself this ruling should not be regarded as my last book on the subject be the simply meant to indicate the test which the government must meet. also coming up tonight five years ago today russia began and mixing crimea or brusha groups saying it was a bloodless revolution but they conveniently ignore those and exemption opponents who disappeared and have never been seen again but everything points to the fact that it was the russian security service the f.s.b. the pressure they put on him beforehand the warnings they gave him they would interrogate him for hours every time he crossed over into ukraine.
to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world welcome we begin the day with breaks it by the rules today the speaker of the british house of commons did what he is supposed to do and he ignited yet another firestorm in the process john bercow the man that the world has come to know was mr order today said another vote on prime minister teresa mayes brigs a plan will not be a well unless the proposal for a vote is substantially different from last week's in other words in parliament the president has always been no repeat votes on the same measure sounds reasonable unless you were counting on another vote this week a prime minister to resign may we understand this evening is furious about the decision the u.k. solicitor general has accused bercow of intervening and of having too much or overreach and there is talk that the government may try to suspend parliament without dissolving it and what about breaks it in a loving day is the u.k. will begin leaving the european union with no plan nothing about today's new
parliamentary pronouncement changes that yet here is part of what the speaker said today it has been strongly rumored. though i have not received confirmation of this that i've even possibly fourth meeting who. will be tempted and this statement which is designed to signal what would be orderly and what would not. this is my conclusion if the government wishes to bring forward a new proposition. that's he's not either the same nor substantially the same as that disposed of by you the house on the twelfth of mo this would be entirely in order. what we're covering carol legitimately do is to
resubmit the house the same proposition all substantially the same proposition as last of last week which was rejected by one hundred forty nine. let's bring in our correspondent barbara vai's all she joins me tonight from outside the houses of parliament in london good evening to you barbara so the house of commons speaker says if you want another vote fine but you may not vote on the same thing twice now the u.k. solicitor general says this is created a constitutional crisis in the country why. of first because this is frustrating government it is also impeding government in trying to do what it warns that means to somehow push the brakes and deal through the house of commons and as the u.k. is a largely government centric as sort of rule has
a government centric rule basically said it was centered around the executive and not around palm and that it creates a certain crisis the problem it is not meant to take control here in britain the control is supposed to be issued by government so government hasn't really had control of a great city and we have seen what happened last week parliament tried to sort of grab it and share and away now that certainly is a crisis bought what flows from it is still totally open to the solicitor general of the u.k. he says that there are ways to get around the decision by the help of speaker would be what is known as poor again should ending parliament session without dissolving parliament no barbara why would that help anyone. it's a quite fantastically lawyerly ideal for is just the mentions of we need to step up
and say i hereby declare polman closed then there needs to be somehow an interim and then needs to be a new opening of parliament supposedly with a speech by the queen nobody can really imagine that also there's another problem is simply no time left and to reason may will have to push one law through parliament next week that is really urgent the one that sort of takes back the old bracks of law and says we he if i do care for x. it is not going to be on the train the sort of march bought on a later date and so this really is necessary she says she. he could send away parliament only after that and still it would solve anything so government is furious treason maze for your ears and they felt they was sort of really caught in the dark by this we had no advance notice by john dark of the speaker of this intervention force as it stands tonight the u.k.
has a love and days until march twenty ninth when it is supposed to leave the european union so what does all of this mean for breaks of or. this means for breaks that trees may now will have to go and one shouldn't have brakes and management system ready announced that will have to go in three stooges even cs sorry it all didn't work out i can't really explain why not bought we need an extension we need more time basically she said she would give us was three months short technical extension or foe nine months if there has to be a real beefing lever we need new russets has a say in this the e.u. heads of state and government will probably just make one offer and then say ok this is it this is what we can give you and now you take it go home with it and sort yourself out so breaks it on the twenty ninth next next week is supposedly not going to happen bought after we what we saw today i would really hate to put
a bet on it i don't want to do is my money and i want you to lose money either way but what about the house of commons speaker mr bercow he has been criticized a lot for his decision today but also for other things that he has done it couldn't it be argued that he is a little late to the game that he should have told theresa may that the second vote on her brakes that withdrawal plan was also not a well because the second version of her plan was not substantially different from the first version. the speaker argued of course and others are huge here today that this second version was different because the did did make some concessions about the northern irish backstop so you could argue ok first time right second time there were some changes people could see that there was some additions to the deal so that was maybe different enough but just to put the same thing up again and until it hit time until they resolved fisheries amaze desire to
push the deal through parliament that's not on that is more or less not democratic and also if you look at to the the argument you can't have a second referendum people shouldn't have that but polman can vote till it drops till till the result fits the government's expectations so that really doesn't go to together and that's what sort of put an end to today so where do we go from here we know that the u.k. is still waiting to hear from the e.u. about this extension. is that a still up in the air i mean are we going to hear yes or no from the european union this week. absolutely the this summit meets on thursday and to the trees in may we'll go there there's a ritual for that usually she of history dinner and she will say ok sorry about this but we need more time the two years were not enough time to squabble the threats of we have no majority things just didn't work out and then the e.u.
leaders are going to make her an offer or maybe off just some having talked amongst themselves late to the night tonight even sort of these dissolute of a bit off attention and waiting time involved to make it more exciting but in the end to it seems from the surgeon they're going to offer her some extra time so it's like in football you know you just try again to get to go far as you keep your eye on the ball that's the point right barbara. well the story for us tonight in london we'll be talking with you again this week for sure barbara thank you. today marks five years since russia annexed crimea from ukraine since then the potential in the black sea has been a focal point of tensions between russia and the west progress the separatists in crimea are celebrating what moscow has described as the day of crimea's reunification with russia ukraine and much of the international community have
always pointed out that the end exemption was a violation of international law all since twenty fourteen about thirteen thousand people have been killed in an ongoing conflict between ukraine and russian backed separatists in eastern ukraine. our next report tonight comes from crimea as largest cities a vast a poll where when you met people still suffering after the takeover as well as those taking part in today's celebrations like members of a pro russia biker game who helped to make that annexation happen. the night wolves and their leader legs on the result are vladimir putin's favorite bikers. there rally through the city of sebastopol marking five years since the russian takeover is more than just a bit of fun. back in two thousand and fourteen they played a very real part in helping the kremlin bring the peninsula under its control. setting up roadblocks and patrolling the streets while the russian special forces
in unmarked uniforms took over government buildings. so i assume it's a miracle this all happened fairness went out for the first time that it all happened without bloodshed a person just growing up. a claim that ignores at least six deaths in fifteen disappearances attributed to russian security services by human rights activists over the years since moscow took control. one of them was. a member of the region's three hundred thousand strong muslim to tar minority and a vocal opponent of the russian takeover of the region in may twenty sixteen he was abducted just a few hundred meters from his home men dressed as traffic police stopped at a friend's car for what appeared to be a routine check soon they were bundling him into an unmarked minivan. he broke free and tried to run away. but he was soon right back. he has not been heard
from since. course now with a view that's where the surveillance camera was it's only thanks to that camera that we know what happened. because police came around to the neighbors afterwards to tell them not to report anything they might have seen coming for the for. evans parents have sent more than a hundred appeals for help to official bodies sent dozens of letters to president vladimir putin all to no effect his father is convinced the authorities have no interest in getting to the bottom of the case but everything points to the fact that it was the russian security service the f.s.b. the pressure they put on him beforehand the warnings they gave him they would interrogate him for hours every time he crossed over into ukraine. in savannah to pull the night was really reaches its climax at their patriotic feeling park imperial symbols rub up against soviet icons of rock music and science
fiction all in the cause of russia on hand to extend his graduations to the bikers is the leader of crimea as russian administration. particularly my thanks goes to those who took part in the unique operation to guarantee the security of the referendum everything was done with such a dastardly such guts that our opponents didn't even have time to realize what was going on. the anniversary is about more than crimean and its two point five million inhabitants the annexation put russia on a collision course with ukraine and the west but shows no sign of ending what it also did was to change the tone of russian politics as the kremlin found itself facing international isolation and sanctions it embrace groups like the night was bringing their very particular back to the future brand of russianness out of the margins and into the mainstream. our correspondent nick
connelly he is in sebastopol good evening to you as a fascinating story and these groups of supporters like the bikers that we just soul i mean is it possible that they helped make that. possible at the same time committed crimes all of this with total impunity good evening well the night was very certainly did play quite a significant role in those early days in march twenty fifth. the russian special forces those famous little green men russian special forces in unmarked uniforms to go about their deeds and to basically kick ukraine's authorities out of this peninsula in terms of the sort of human rights abuses we saw in the story there of the disappeared activist there doesn't seem to be a direct connection to them the father of the man we profiled there points the finger at the f.s.b. russian security services there are other volunteer groups who were officially at
least not connected to security services and based based on volunteer involvement that have been implicated in attacking abducting people who spoke out against russia's control of this region the u.n. speaks of a forty abduction since the annexation of which they say at least twelve people have yet to be found let alone no bodies no trace so twelve people of whom there is no trace of the last five you know disturbing numbers we know that in a couple of weeks ukrainians will choose a new president how is this anniversary and relations with russia i mean how is all of this impacting the campaigns and the candidates. well. because in the ukrainian public awareness crimea plays a very small role now so much else happens in ukraine since the crimea. which continues to this day the strange enough crimea seems. national story russia's
narrative. this idea of bringing crimea back to its home as he calls it as he is his legacy basically his main achievement as president russia where. else going on that is basically being crowding out real impact it has had on ukraine's politics is actually change the electoral map so when ukrainians go to the polls now at the end of march these traditionally pro russian votes from crimea from. that basically creates to parity a kind of fifty fifty split between pro-west and. that has been lost because these people don't vote. so that has really fundamentally changed the balance of power in ukraine. and crimea. sanctions international isolation for russia and yet russia shows no signs of leaving the peninsula who would ever challenge russia now. is
a permanent condition. well exactly brant there's no real sign that anyone is seriously thinking of challenging russia militarily crimea is a region that's been up to its teeth this was historically and still is home to russia's black sea fleet but a lot more in terms of all means has been brought in the last five years and indeed no one in ukraine is seriously talking about challenging russia simply because the balance of strength is so much in russia's favor i think no one in ukraine yet is really willing to talk about giving up its claims to crimea that is definitely something that still think. in ukraine for now the standoff continues and people you know moving crimea is trying to visit relatives in the rest of ukraine ukraine is trying to come here have a hell of a hard time passing through some very strict border checks. and challenging the an exemption but of course i mean challenging russian president vladimir putin and the
doesn't seem to be much of an appetite for that either around the world are there any critical voices in crimea who are speaking out about the end exhaustion. well that's very difficult there is a russian that provides for prison sentences of up to five years for quote challenging russia's territorial integrity so that can be a facebook post saying that crimea is ukraine so even liking a post like that can put you in great trouble and they have seen people. house arrest beginning to prison for this kind of claim so most of the most. most direct and open challenges to russia's control has been so have left most. have tried to keep in touch with. but open dissent open criticism of russia's control of the region is very difficult and it is very difficult as a journalist trying to talk to people to encourage people to open up about these
kind of things in front of the camera what you will hear private people try to make their. dissatisfaction very concrete they talk about issues they have with the official may be problems they're having with. getting the legal remedy that they won't address the political problems and the broader political disaffection dissatisfaction because the danger of prison and that would bring. in it really seems like. there is the story of the ongoing fighting in eastern ukraine and there's a story of the you know completed an exchange and in crimea what would you say what's the difference now between the situation. in crimea. the major difference is that in crimea the people most people here have now taken russian passports to. the ukraine in the community. sees ukrainian.
people live in crimea live they have the facilities and the russian citizens they have the full pensions of the russian state in eastern ukraine and russia wasn't willing to offer people that same perspective basically becoming a defector part of russia people did not get russian they didn't get russian pensions and the fighting continues in crimea it could be active phase of the standoff was very short and basically since the end of march twenty fourth teen russian forces are being controlled and you've had this standoff between russian supported separatists and the. me. in which people are still dying. that is very different situation. spondon economy joining us tonight from the city of sebastopol in crimea on this five year anniversary of the annexation of crimea by russia nic thank you very much.
the pressure continues to mount on the u.s. aircraft manufacturer boeing the black box data flight recorders in the recent ethiopian airlines seven thirty seven max crash point to similarities with the crash of another seven thirty seven max in indonesia in october of last year now both crashes killed everyone on board tonight there are also reports emerging which cast more delts on the u.s. federal aviation authority they claim that the f.a.a. may have relied on both wings only engineers in what were supposed to be independent safety certifications for the seven thirty seven maps. that is quite an accusation right there to talk more about that i'm joined by the w.'s christophe cobra he's been following the story for us chris also there talking about what gross violations of development certification but let me read the seattle times is reporting several issues over which experts are raising their eyebrows first
boeing's safety analysis and this analysis of this new augmented flight control system had crucial flaws including understating its power and the statement that bones and their near submitted to the f.a.a. they called a complete failure of the system a potential complete failure they were able to hazardous rather than catastrophic which would have meant more and longer testing now we have to remember the failure of this malfunctioning of this system was responsible for the crash of the lion air flight in october and the most recent crash of ethiopian airlines flight three hundred two shows similarities secondly there are reports that the federal aviation administration has outsourced much of the certification process you mentioned it to boeing itself amid budget cuts and an increase in air travel so ultimately the manufacturer of the product was responsible for certifying its safety that as boeing was under pressure amazing to bring out the seventy seven macs on the market because it was facing stiff competition. by airbus so what are boeing and the
f.a.a. saying about since well both parties are saying the process followed a regular routine and both parties declined to comment further now we have reports from the wall street journal though saying that one day after sunday's crash of flight three hundred two the u.s. just the justice department issued a subpoena to at least one person seeking documents and further material when it comes to the plane's certification now a criminal investigation into this whole story would be certainly a new twist to it more pressure for boeing there that transportation department is also probing the approval process of the seven three seven the more we find out here the worse it gets i mean it's going from a crash crisis to something much bigger it's not getting any better it's not getting any better boeing is facing potentially facing financial claims from the victims' families not only the ones from indonesia but also the ones from ethiopia
facing potential change from airlines jets are grounded possibly further financial fallout if companies cancel their orders and the distrust in the company is growing and for a company who is a relying on people's trust in their products day by day this is a very uncomfortable position to be crystal cooper's always thank you. well the day is almost over but the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter either at the news or you can follow me and golf t.v. don't forget to use the hash tag of the day every member whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day we'll see that ever go to.
