to find a way forward on britain's divorce from the e.u. she's been struggling to hold a third vote on a plan that m.p.'s have already rejected twice well the e.u. has given her until april twelfth to win parliamentary backing for the deal or find a viable alternative. but it is with great regret that i have had to conclude that as things stand there is still not sufficient support in the house to bring back the deal for a third reason for vote. i continue i continue to have discussions with colleagues across the house to build support so that we can bring the full revote forward this week and guarantee brit's it if we cannot the government made a commitment that we would work across the house to find a majority on the way forward. right so things you'd up again the brags about gears up or not i keep saying that but they keep moving the goal posts were to bring in my colleague alex forrest whiting to reg's it analyst what next well that was to
5:03 pm
resume a clearly saying she still doesn't have the support that she needs she still working hard to get it but is clearly struggling we know that she's trying to win over those bricks a tear and piece those years skeptics in her own party and those all important ten northern irish d u p m pages who've already said that at the moment they are not going to support her because they can't see anything different in what she's offering but until they come on board those bricks are to m.p.'s are unlikely to come on board so she's in a catch twenty two and she also made it clear in her speech that she doesn't want parliament to take control of the process which is effectively what m.p.'s are going to vote on tonight to the government will not support that so-called indicative vote or turn it if plans but the label will and it looks likely that that will go through tonight so that
5:04 pm
a wednesday we could see parliament m.p.'s in parliament taking control of the process and trying to see what alternatives they can all agree on to put forward so that would be unprecedented for the parliament to take over from the prime minister but as things stand now the default position is. is that the u.k. will leave the e.u. with no deal that's the default position so it was supposed to be this friday the twenty ninth of march but because of the meeting last week with the european council they've now given the new date of the twelfth of april to resume a making that very clear to parliament saying look i know that you know makers do not want as a whole a no deal breck's it's a really at the moment still the only option is mine deal which i want to bring back to you which i want to get through but i can't until i've got the support so really we are just waiting to see what happens next and if these m.p.'s do get the
5:05 pm
votes that they need to try to take control of parliament on wednesday to see if they can forge a way through but yet again theresa may saying none of that will be legally binding so it really is a pretty chaotic in. what is also quite obvious is that she is prime minister may is fighting for her political life will she survive well we know that there have been another a number of attempts to unseat to and including this weekend where there were two separate candidates that seemed to be put forward by their supporters to say these one of these two could be the caretaker prime minister that who seemed to disappear as soon as it came to the surface but it is clear that at some point she has got to promise those particular those bricks a tear m.p.s. that she will step down the question is when if they replace the now what good is it actually going to do she just wants to get a deal through and they know that if they replace or someone else is just going to

5:07 pm
is the greatest place on earth. greatest place thank you very much. 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 structed miller's investigation. for president trump the message is clear there was no collusion with iraq there was no up struck here and none whatsoever. and it was a complete and total exoneration. so is it all over
5:08 pm
well no not for the democrats. president trump is wrong this report there's not amounts to a so-called total exoneration 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 be honest. i don't want i don't trust anything he says and i don't trust anybody who's investigating him i think now we can you know sleep all night. and all of course completely and some. 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

5:11 pm

5:13 pm
policy here in the region and tony all of these developments the airstrikes happening right now at the golan heights recognition potential go on the highest recognition by the u.s. all happening in just a short time before elections in israel. absolutely i mean that week last week for the president was seen as an election gift to prime minister netanyahu so to speak and also his travel to washington was seen a bit for mr netanyahu he can show that he is the one. the master of the foreign relations but of course all this happening you know also. the tense situation in the south. that is also why there's so much pressure know possibly on prime minister netanyahu from all sides to respond in a very tough matches so we have to see what the coming out was will look like tanya

germany. i know stauffer has a completely different view he is an author who wrote the screenplay for a film about resistance fighters sawfish. he has found all kinds of illegal copies on youtube. this means artists like him loose income the in the digital world we actually are nothing because everything gets stolen. that's why blind us office in favor filters and believes the opponents are being encouraged to you tube itself has indeed warned of censorship and called for people to protest as seen here end of the year so now 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 will be taken away from you or you will no longer be able to have your own channels will no

5:21 pm
with more on that story good to see you call what's so controversial about bike helmets this is a campaign it's 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 out. agents 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 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
5:22 pm
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 online say look taxpayer money should not be used for ad campaigns and feature half naked models but is that 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. a 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 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
5:23 pm
germany for cyclists just 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 isn't stuttgart watch that truck last right past the cyclist. nearly taking him out and that's not an isolated case the statistics they'd 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 no 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 london's i can place them to 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.
