4:03 pm
serious we need to make sure that you leave the european union we do the work because like as many people as possible regularly that means thinking that going to stick and making sure we can get you into prime minister is doing the right thing right thinking about the national interest of this country and trying to end the scales by getting supremum through. to some reactions are there from earlier today or as the brig's that battle le gaire is up a notch as likes to bring in my colleague alex forster whiting as she is due to the use of briggs it analyst we've been talking almost every day so very happy to have you here were just bring us up to speed on what's going on right now but as he said she held talks with her cabinets of her top team this morning which as we know is completely divided she's june to address m.p.'s in parliament some lawmakers in parliament in a round about hoffa now it's time and then late today this evening we're expecting m.p.'s to vote on various amendments to various changes that they would like simple forward and the most significant. is what's called indicative votes trying to find
4:04 pm
alternative plans and one m.p. hilary benn he's a labor m.p. he has tabled this particular motion among other m.p.'s for these so-called indicative votes and we can hear how he describes it. parliament is deadlocked the promises to be defeated twice i think the public would expect us as parliament turns to see whether we can find a different way forward it has very brute party support and the aim is true i'm sure that on wednesday of this week and peace have a chance to vote on a range of in terms of options to see whether any of them can come out of a job. and that range of options includes to reason may's deal plus a customs union so keeping parts of what the u.k. already has a new deal breaks it even a second referendum so there was a whole range of ideas the roster of things let's talk about the prime minister's deal because i thought by all accounts it was dead but apparently it's not it's
4:05 pm
been twice we're ject it she has plans to table it again the third time lucky well that's what she's hoping i'm there was talk about it being a coming back to parliament again tomorrow night we'll find out late tonight whether that is going to happen but the problem is she still hasn't got the support and how teams made it very clear she won't bring it back unless she's got that support she needs around about seventy five m.p.'s there's breck's of m.p.'s who are euro skeptic you cannot support today at the moment to come on board plus those ten northern irish m.p.'s the e.u. people who prop up the document and already in the past hour they've said at the moment they cannot see any difference to her deal and that they are not going to support it so it looks very difficult for her for her very difficult what next for mrs a may i mean there was talk of a possible coup taking place was there any truth to that i think there probably was truth to it but the problem is because politicians like the country is so divided
4:06 pm
over the issue of breaks it who ever was going to be put forward is this so-called can't take a prime minister was going to upset the other side so there were two names that were put forward yesterday both of those people came out yesterday and today to say they're not going. they said we don't want to step into his shoes so at the moment she knows faith bought only for the moment and i can't see how last thing for many more months but at the moment there was no one to a place that i won't go to when it really do at the moment still look a night the u.k. could be on the twelfth of april without a dale so it is still a very difficult and dangerous situation for the u.k. i would say at the moment aren't alex a four star waiting to have user brags that analyst as always thank you. we shift our attention now to the u.s. he said it was a politically motivated witchhunt well now u.s. president on some claims he's been fully vindicated after the mother report failed to establish that he or his campaign colluded with russia to influence the twenty
4:07 pm
sixteen presidential election but democrats say some of the findings such as whether the president of struck to justice are not so certain. clearly happy u.s. president donald trump returned to washington on sunday after the u.s. attorney general released the first summary of robert miller's report warning. that america great is a very. great place for. the investigation into whether trump and his aides colluded with russia during the twenty sixteen presidential election campaign had become a political thriller in a letter to congress attorney general william barr said the report had not found enough evidence to prove that the trump campaign conspired with the russian government. barr also said the report could not establish that the president of
4:08 pm
structed mulder's investigation. for president trump the message is clear there was no collusion with russia there was no obstruction and none whatsoever. and it was a complete and total exoneration. so is it all over well no not for the democrats president is wrong this report there's not amounts to a so-called total exoneration the special counsel moeller was clear that his report quote does not exonerate close quote the president. highly anticipated the news caused mixed reactions some american spoke of a turning point in trump's presidency but others remain skeptical i don't trust to
4:09 pm
be honest. i don't want i don't trust anything they say and i don't trust anybody who's investigating and i think now we can you know sleep all night thinking. of all of course completely and some of the. president doesn't need to be impeached by any means while republicans consider muller's report a victory. democrats say the attorney general's four page summary does not offer sufficient closure they're calling for the department of justice to release the full report expect the partisan fight over that issue now as the american public remains as divided as ever. and you're watching the news we still have a lot more to tell you about here's what's coming up the canyon man who's won the title of world's best teacher we'll find out how we transformed students' lives and what he's going to do with the one million dollar prize money.

4:18 pm
action if laws are broken but the intent is to force sites like facebook and you tube to monitor what users publish what critics fear that websites actually may use automatic filters that could also block material you know that's not restricted while opponents of the bill say that could have dramatic replications all items that we use if i can from the market went to the demonstration here in berlin where protesters aimed their message at angela merkel's c.d.u. party and they say the politicians just don't understand what's at stake for them. never again c.d.u. is what the demonstrators are shouting in front of the conservative party headquarters building. many are young and this is their first protest they fear for their internet they believe the government is limiting their freedom. to have his. well you tube channel myself that might get deleted or something because of this filters deletion censorship bearden's things the government has underestimated the
4:19 pm
fear of article thirteen she's a c.d.u. politician herself but she cites with the protestors and if manchild a lot of people you too must have raised this issue people who normally don't share their political views but now in this context they do and they reach so many people these are so huge discussions that until now have barely been considered and this debate. politicians have long ignored. the demonstrators they are heroes. alone has more than five million subscribers and has called for protests fired music videos like the. other you tube stars to have suddenly become political tennis but harman is calling you re presented to us and asking them to stop the reform. and wants to prevent

4:21 pm
is the time to speak up. in the background is the major platforms with their economic interests stirring up the kids and telling them the internet break you will be taken away from you or you will no longer be able to have your own channels will no longer be able to advertise lipstick complete rubbish from. whether to fear a conviction tens of thousands took to the streets of germany to protest upload pictures and more and more parties now share the concerns of the demonstrators. but it could be that politicians have suddenly heard new arguments but it could also be that the pressure of future was and young people made the difference no politician wants a view nate the vote as of tomorrow and no party wants to appear ignorant on digital issues. this argument will continue to rage at least until the vote in the european parliament both on the internet and on the streets. where we stay here
4:22 pm
in germany a new safety temp a named ed getting cyclists to wear helmets is getting a lot of attention and all for the wrong reasons and carl has been joins me now with more on that story good to see you what's so controversial about bike helmets this is a campaign ad by germany's transport ministry it sounds like it's a good cause i mean getting people on their bikes to wear a helmet that's a good thing right but it is rubbing some people in germany the wrong way i mean this is really prompting a lot of outrage and. being called quote stupid and a sexist by some german politicians even so let's take a look i mean this is the campaign that we're talking about that's that's really getting people up in arms here it features models from the reality show germany's next top model you see them there the slogan is looks like but saves my life the message here it's aimed at young people maybe they're too fashion conscious to wear a helmet they say look nerdy or something like that but it's using these these topless sexy models in order to promote that message that's not going over so well
4:23 pm
here in germany here's just one response that we're seeing online this is from germany's minister for family affairs she's on her bike there she is she says hey i'm wearing a helmet but i've got my clothes on so apparently you can wear a helmet and still have your clothes on others we've seen calling this embarrassing they're calling this out dated and still more people on line say look taxpayer money should not be used for ad campaigns and feature athan a good models but is the campaign working though well that's the question at least one person says this is definitely working and that's the person behind the campaign this is. he is germany's transport minister himself here he is on twitter he's saying hey thanks for all the attention this is already our most successful traffic safety campaign of all time a great collaboration with germany's next top model he's essentially saying look this campaign did is exactly what it's supposed to do get attention get people talking about it and proponents here in germany say that this campaign is necessary
4:24 pm
and that's because the target audience here they don't wear helmets eight percent of germans age seventeen to thirty don't wear helmets when they cycle in fact adults not that much better about twenty percent wear helmets so how safe is germany for cyclists in general in a word it's not very safe and i don't know if you've seen this but a lot of bikers now they wear these have these helmet cams when they bike and it's to capture moments like this take a look at this video this is the stuttgart watch that truck last right past the cyclist. nearly taking them out and that's not an isolated case the statistics they bear it out just how dangerous the streets are we have a graphic for you if we have time to show you just how dangerous german cities are you can see it here now i didn't know this label four of the top five most dangerous cities in europe are in germany for cyclists so berlin's at the top of that list you see nearly seven hundred bikers seriously injured or fifteen even killed one in second place then we go cologne hamburg stuttgart not

a safe place it's really a smart idea to wear your helmet if you're on the streets call noted. all right before i let you go want to tell you about germany's national football team which offered their fans a jolt of optimism on sunday they defeated all rivals the netherlands in a qualifying match for the twenty twenty european championships it was an important win for the team trying to turn over a new leaf with new players. you can live germany finally back to winning ways a squad containing a blend of old and new faces snatched a three two victory over the netherlands on sunday and it was youth which made the difference. from the start of the week when we first met up i had the feeling the team could go out and show their strength on the pitch. we did that. of course i felt really good at the end of the game. but through the lives
4:26 pm
decisions x. twenty fourteen world cup winners jerome batang machel mills and thomas miller was heavily criticised but against the dutch a dreadful twenty eight team for germany was forgotten because schultz kept it doesn't display with the winning goal believes the squad can only get better with easy eternal six ahead in june it gets better routes and a stone yet hopefully to emotions and i don't score too many goals and i'm just really happy for the team. and for his mission it's not easy when you haven't got the long time from your plate with one another in matches before midnight so that can only improve as time. germany fans hope the new era can be built around leroy sawney who scored on some labeled as left out of love squad for last year's world cup. we have used to play as young players so it's an inexperienced team with a lot still to learn and i knew but i think we played really well in. the courtroom live still has a long way to go before germany can be considered among the world's best again but
