let me think. this is it really was life for a girl in britain walks a high wire in search of a solution to his political crisis the government tells lawmakers to expect a fresh briggs it vote tomorrow but it's hemmed in by parliamentary rules and an ultimatum from the european council can it satisfy both and earn another extension to the country's e.u.

would drawl dates also coming up police in malta arrest five migrants for hijacking a tanker ship the men seize control of the vessel after it rescued over one hundred people from the waters off libya. plus iceland's budget airline wow air seizes operations stranding thousands of passengers in europe and north america and in the women's champions league german side walls were came up against defending champions new york will have the highlights of a six goal thriller. thank you so much for your company everyone well we start off with a struggle for consensus in britain which is prolonging uncertainty there the british government is hoping to hold another vote on prime minister to.
6:02 pm
controversial breaks a deal tomorrow but reports say may will be asking parliament to vote only on the divorce aspect of the deal and not the part governing the u.k.'s future relationship with the e.u. or the governments of representative in parliament andrea let's some said parliament first needs to get the go ahead for the vote from the speaker by splitting the vote they hope to secure the support of more opposition m.p.'s the government must pass the word draw agreement to earn a nother deadline extension from brussels. well at today's developments at westminster follow an attempt by lawmakers on wednesday to test support for alternatives to the government's we're drawl plan well not a single proposal could muster a majority in the commons but the most popular plant was for a referendum to confirm any deal passed by parliament and that's in line with the policy of britain's third party the liberal democrats as m.p.
6:03 pm
vera whop house told nickel reese britain has seen its deepest political crisis in decades breck's it is going on and going on we don't have a solution we don't see any unity who do you blame for this whole chaos but first of all the referendum result was very very close look at that nearly half the people actually wanted to stay in the european union yet this government doesn't seem to reflect that it all has always gone in one direction that is ultimately about a very clean break with the european union and within her own party that the prime minister cannot find unity about what they want and what are you hopes i have been campaigning for a people's vote i believe particularly because the vote was so close and because the leaves is split within itself we need to test it and put it back to the people so i vote for anything that actually attaches a people's vote to the proposition so if it's teresa mayes deal against
6:04 pm
a people's vote i'm fine if it is no way plus whatever but combined with the people's vote i'm fine i just want to put whatever we decide in parliament back to the people. the role of democrats of their own hobhouse they're making the case for a people's vote to. the state you know to charlotte she's standing by in london outside westminster where do things stand right now. well as you said theresa may is determined to get her deals through parliament tomorrow for another vote for a third time this time to extend that deadline for the u.k. to leave the european union until may twenty second in an orderly fashion and she made that ultimate sacrifice yesterday telling her conservative party that she is going to step down for the next step of the negotiations if they are going to approve that deal and some tory rebels fell in line with that strategy they said
6:05 pm
they are going to vote for the deal amongst them for example boris johnson the former foreign minister he said he's going to vote for that deal now after he's been bashing it for a month the problem is that the numbers still don't add up in her favor though the northern irish do you hear her ally is saying they are not going to back the deal to resign they would also need some labor support for her deal to pass so it's very unclear at this point and the speaker of the house john bercow said he's not going to allow the vote if then no substantial changes to the deal so the government is working on that at this hour so show it i mean is there a way out of this deadlock because as you've just been reporting theresa may try to sweeten the deal by promising to step down if lawmakers through or deal but what if there won't even be a third vote. exactly that is the problem so the default option and still that the u.k. is leaving the european union on april twelfth without a deal and that is
6:06 pm
a huge fear here in this country yesterday parliament voted down eight options and they were all rejected so there's no clear path forward and a no deal brecht's that of course could have chaotic consequences for the country and the people one lawmaker saying today though that this is the most likely option today if there is no way out of the deadlock and at the moment it looks very unclear how a way forward could look like ponce reporting thank you. malta's armed forces have taken control of a tanker that was hijacked by migrants rescued at sea turkish vessel arrives at a maltese port with military personnel on board five people were handcuffed and scored off the vessel about one hundred migrants and refugees who had been rescued in the seas off libya some of them took control of the ship when it was ordered to were turned to libya and forced it to head toward europe instead to discuss the latest baton borghese senior journalist for the times of malta in the capital of
6:07 pm
alaska thank you so much for taking out the time to speak to us what's going to happen to the people on the boat do we know what their current situation is. well we know that five five of those are one hundred eight were handcuffed and arrested there in police custody and whether they'll be charged and tried them or that are more. proceedings will be tape made to extradite them back presumably to libya it is yet to be seen although i would imagine they'll be tried in a multis court. the other one hundred one hundred three or so. we've been told have started designing proceedings and they're there as i don't know applications will be processed as usual what are you hearing about what exactly happened on that ship. it's still it's still not entirely clear at this stage that
6:08 pm
the movie supports this morning. we haven't really right now they're still processing those people on board what we do know is that some point yesterday because of the ship's captain the l.a. police captain who was taking the migrants he had rescued back to tripoli. when they were six miles around six miles off the libyan coast that ship feared sunny sunday veered north he sent out a message saying he was under an attack from from his rescue crew passengers and then it started very north and eventually look he was became clear it was coming towards malta the ship went cited for many hours. and resume communications when it was. just outside maltese waters when no army patrol boat approached. had never seen a peace or is a peaceful one there wasn't doesn't seem to have been any violence involved. so it
6:09 pm
does seem like these people are just desperate to get to her even at the expense of any kind of criminals right now this of course comes off the back of the european rescue mission is sophia which has been halted as you know there's this indicate possibly that refugees will use more or just people trying to make it to europe will try to use more desperate means to make it to the e.u. . well i think i think if the more the more doors you close the more people will try to find a window so to speak. sophia was officially ended yesterday but it's worth noting. the last official severe rescue mission dates back to i think it was july so and it's peaks of peacekeepers especially twenty sixteen so it's been tapering off for
6:10 pm
a long while yes there was just the official so to speak. that there's not no more rescue missions but we are closing all the taps so to speak there are no more human rescue missions n.g.o.s ships are constantly being stopped by bureaucratic measures and so on it's least because it's of course more doing the bare minimum so i would imagine that you will see increasingly desperate attempts. what i want what i wonder is how this will. offer commercial ships in the region who which all vessels have an obligation under international law to rescue people in distress but i imagine they'll be made quite a few commercial liners saying you can't you won't be subjected to. very very dire options there that might become actually reality in the near future betar borger senior journalist for the times of

airlines are offering so-called rescue fares so those are discounting fares that are either to get you home or where you wanted to go in the first place so other airlines like iceland airways air already saying they're going to do this but of course this is going to come as cold comfort to passengers who would argue waited hours at the airport only to be told that their flights are canceled here are your bags and whiz airs also being criticized for having sold the tickets till the last minute they were still selling tickets this morning so suffice to say it didn't have to be done this way and none of it has worked out as hoped right. now it's a single least well the ten this is the tenth european low cost carrier to go under in the past two years where is it all go wrong well the european passenger aviation market has gotten really competitive in the last years and the toll has really been set by the giants of the budget airline industry you know them easy jet ryan airways air and as these airlines try to undercut each other the price of the margins are squeezed and it becomes
