this is d.w. news live from british lawmakers deal another blow to the government's plans m.p.'s reject the prime minister's withdrawal deal a third time so instead of leaving the e.u. today britain will leave on the twelfth of april unless theresa may can convince those it's worth giving the u.k. another extension also on the program millions of algerians take to the streets with their weekly demands for fresh elections they will the country's president to
step down after two decades in power. and a grieving nation remembers the victims of the new zealand attack attack. represents representatives from nearly sixty countries of that as well to all of the fifty people gunned down during friday prayers two weeks ago. i'm still gail welcome to the program today it should have been the day britain left the european union and said it was a day but she's lawmakers that dealt the prime minister's press plans another blow despite two previous defeats theresa may was trying to get parliament to approve the withdrawal deal she agreed with brussels and gave an extension of the deadline . departure. it wasn't time lucky. he was to the
right two hundred eighty six the nose for the left three hundred forty four so the nerds have it the menus have it on well once again a vote in parliament and once again a defeat for the government for the third time prime minister teresa mayes breaks that plan fails mr speaker i fear we are reaching the limits of this process in this house this house. this house has rejected no deal it has rejected no bret's it on wednesday introjected all the variations of the deal on the table and today it has rejected approving the withdrawal agreement alone now on april twelfth there will be a withdrawal without a deal unless making negotiate a further postponement with the e.u. but it's uncertain how long they will remain prime minister leading conservatives
are already positioning themselves to replace her and the opposition also wants her to lead me to a ploy that i'm greek this is speaker of the house has been clear this deal now has to change the has to be an alternative found and if the prime minister card to accept that then she must go not to as an indeterminate date in the future but now but the age you had anticipated may's defeat and will hold a special summit on april tenth just two days before britain may now have to exit the union war better. we be. we just become more likely. it would move war scenario. to you twenty seven is no.
that would actually be good news for these people the bricks and supporters were poised to celebrate their departure from the e.u. today but now it's doubtful they'll get what they want. we have to have a democratic vote it needs to count we want you to die we want this law to agree to get us out soon as possible and that by going to trial you're going on. no deal new elections a second referendum now breck says in fact anything is still possible the british parliament has once again voted and once again still nothing is clear. here make things a little bit clearer with. in london and masses in brussels welcome both. charlotte that there are plenty of protesters for the games to sit outside parliament today how are people feeling about what happened.
today was a day where the u.k. was supposed to leave the european union so a lot of the protesters out here have come to celebrate the day and now turning into protesters they are saying that they angry about the situation that they wanted the u.k. to exit the european union today that it has been delayed now that they are mad about that and they amat with the political process and general so those are those protesters others have come here to demand a second referendum and to stay in the european union so tensions and emotions here in london really running high today so now the parliament has dismissed this deal for the third time is the deal now dead. well potentially and then the emphasis is really on potentially to reset make could china to bring it back full force time in front of parliament but judging from the comments that we've heard today from members of. parliament they really fed up with that they
don't want to vote on it again there is no majority she lost by fifty eight votes that's quite a lot of people that she would have to convince other way so i think it's unlikely that we're seeing any development dan and then the question is what comes next and two options remain one is that the u.k. leaves by default on april twelfth creches out of the european union with potentially disastrous consequences or that theresa may goes back to brussels and asks for a longer extension that parliament sits down finds a way forward that could possibly be a new referendum new elections to change the parliamentary arithmetic and move things forward but that would mean a long extension and that would mean that the u.k. would have to take part in the european elections something that many people here don't want to have buses and brussels how is the reaction to this defeat. or the expectations are just as charlie has just pointed out indicate us
a way forward until the tenth of april when we will have a summit that is the best search that comes from brussels to the u.k. clearly there is frustration here that the deal that the u.k. and the e.u. hammered out over a period of two years. has not passed a third time that the scenario that process really hopes to avoid a no deal bracks it has become all the more likely. a show that mentioned we are just weeks away from the european parliament elections if to resume a gets another extension will the u.k. have to take part and how is that likely to affect campaign. well the u.k. would have to take part indeed if they do want an extension that offer is still on the table that they could get a long extension but that would mean they'd have to participate in the european election will it be intervening for the european parliament which has already
calculated how the seats of the british army piece can be distributed through the twenty seven countries remaining yes of course that would be the case about the lesser evil of course is that they do participate heartbreaks it a no deal a disorderly breaks it can be avoided. of course if this disorder broke. on the twelfth of april how long will it be before brits start to see a difference and a what will this. one cut top conservative put it the u.k. will be in a state of emergency and i think that as the brits will notice it right away and immediately so they're going to be issues at the border basically you are going to have a hot border between northern ireland and ireland something the e.u. and the u.k. have been trying to avoid while they negotiated this deal the u.k.
is going to run short of food supplies and medication supplies we could see food rotting at the border and lorries piling up that are bringing the food they could be transport issues so a number of issues really that immediately affect people's life here to go when. we know that in the u.k. is going to bring this whole business back to parliaments and voting in the meantime what is possible to do this process or sort of sit and wait for something to happen. well the contingency planning is in full swing now that the you presumes that no deal breaks it is the most likely scenario and that means they look into all sorts of directions how do enterprises prepare custom controls over over the past year new customs officers have been recruited in cali which is the border point close to the british border or so the next point of access to the continent so all sorts of preparations also legal preparations are in full swing but the e.u.
has made it very clear what happens in the no deal breck's it is they will make a unilateral proposals to the u.k. for instance on citizen rights but they won't come close to anything like a deal which the which the u.k. could negotiate so it will only be emergency preparations that are taking place and not a soft breck's if that could be prepared because the only deal is on that that is on the table is the deal that just has been rejected a third time. masses in brussels posts in london thank you both. let's get the view from berlin that will join did the president correspondent simon you know welcome simon what he hearing from german politicians. well i think here in berlin people got used to this and passed really although they're still pretty shocked at the lack of compromise in westminster but frustration
continues we've had the foreign minister hike amar saying the seedling that time is running out to prevent a disorderly breaks it the same kind of language from the justice minister catherine of bali saying you know that it really does look likely that a no deal breaks it could well happen she said that's the worst possible option and she suggested that it's time now for a second referendum and plenty of opposition politicians are free democrats in grains saying the same thing it's time to put the decision back to the british people many of them say and it's time to do it pretty soon. aside from directly interfering in british politics just berlin see a way forward well and indeed other than saying you know that decisions have to be made they have to be made very soon this is and this is on being the the ball still being in the british court the british parliament or the
british government have to either agree a deal or set out another course of action going forward very soon but one interesting detail we've had today is that it's been announced chancellor merkel will be going to ireland next thursday she's been invited by the irish prime minister leo varadkar the government spokesman here in berlin said she wanted to see for yourself the situation in ireland and of course that question of the relationship between the arash republic and northern ireland the border has been one of the intractable problems in all of these discussions so i wonder if perhaps angle americal think she can pull a surprise solution out of the hat at the last minute i mean young and thank you. so this chaos around brags it has dented britain's reputation for sober pragmatism but another national trait to does seem to have survived the chaos the british
sense of humor however dark has inspired some compelling satire as brits tried to stay say amidst the turmoil at westminster. the house of commons was a penny hill chase on acid running through a salvador dali painting in a spaceship on its way to infinity it was a kind of death defying window shattering shaping never to be surpassed lunacy. the image drawn by tom pack lighting in the independent newspaper. now to reason may has lost so many votes on bricks it it looks like they're stuck. i'm an indian and i can tell you that brits take forever to leave i'm irish and i can confirm this is true. what in your case is literally forever. some people do seem to think this movement but it's running way out of control. rex it is like half a country run by accident and i feel like we have to get off the wrong stop.
people on both sides think it's chaos even math and that's. what ching briggs it clear to on twitter is like being on a what's up group with your mates at one thirty seven on a saturday morning waiting for a cab both keeps going missing and joel is eating a kebab at the ben. and the view from europe they see it something like this. millions of people have taken to algeria streets to demand the president's resignation the weekly protests are against a two year old. who's been in power for twenty years demonstrators filled city squares chanting slogans against the government is the biggest protest since arrested broke out of the country six. weeks ago. the demonstrators started gathering in the early hours on friday veterans of the country's civil war young
men and women packing the square outside the capital's main post office a place that's become the epicenter of the protest movements that demand the removal of the country's political elite. admin know the algerian people are present and united in peaceful demonstrations calling for this clan to leave we do not want them they must leave and if a don't we will judge them one by one. these errors will not only was he had good search mission film can be gets a bit difficult but we will get there slowly and god willing they will all go. which is not much it is out of the these are also the first protest since the chief of the army called for the application of a constitutional article and beautifully and fit to rule. that's led to other bouteflika allies calling for his removal. but demonstrators suspect that's just a ploy to enable the current regime to stay in power. i came out today to say no to
article one hundred in two we are against renewing the regime we want a real democratic country. article one hundred into this for president which ensures that the government remains as it is. so for the six friday in a row algeria is turn out in force to demand change and the removal of a president who's been in power for two decades might only be the start. now to some of the other stories making news around the world u.s. president donald trump is threatening to close the southern border with mexico next week mr trump suggested he would shut the borders to trade and keep it closed if mexico doesn't stop migrants from central america heading towards the u.s. basically his foreign minister said his country's a great neighbor and does not bow to threats. germany's unemployment rate has dropped to its lowest level for thirty years as a work boom in europe's biggest economy extends its run only four point nine

houston has been the highlight for christina and mcclain. their space suits are weighted in such a way that they float in the water. later in space. like this last several hours until they are completely exhausted. they practice every single step i again and again on the simulators. including exiting through the air. many astronauts say that leaving a space station is like jumping into the abyss from safety into the void. in their suits they're like little spaceships themselves orbiting the earth at twenty seven thousand kilometers per hour space debris could hit them at any time and
damage the thin space suit if the astronauts body can double in size and her blood would boil. leaves sharp edged craters on the space station several astronauts have already damaged their gloves while doing assembly work in outer space. the first ever space walk in one thousand nine hundred sixty five was plagued with problems russian cosmonaut alexy learned of floated around in space for twelve minutes but his suit blew up so much he had to release air to get back on board. the first american to walk in space had white followed about three months later. back then the mission was mainly to explore the unfamiliar environment but later it was all about work. more than two hundred.
problems. had to terminate his mission when his helmet began filling with water. the water kept trickling. my eyes and my nose. was really hard to see i couldn't hear anything to communicate i just i went back using. just memory basically going back to the airlock. space resulted in discovering. technology to make easier and safer.
the weapons phrase was imposed after the. last year. because it's the future of. new divisions within the country. it's an attempt to please everyone as demanded by the s.p.d. the german government extended their ban on weapons exports to saudi arabia until september thirtieth twenty nineteen that includes both new deals and weapons already purchased a move criticized by the conservative c.d.u. c.s.u. alliance. we cannot create a new saudi regime nor can we resolve the conflict from our perspective especially if we keep our distance and that is why i believe we have to rely on our partners in the region that if. a contingency plan is being found for these shipyards in northern germany coastal protection ships ordered by saudi arabia are being built
here but can't be delivered under the export ban now the german government says it may buy them exempt from the ban or european joint projects such as the euro fighter around thirty percent of the parts come from germany such permits will now be renewed subject to certain conditions and part that is to prevent the threat of billions in damages claims from the industry the socialist left party calls this misleading the i think a big deal the only condition imposed by the german government is that the partner countries france and great britain should be assured by saudi arabia that these armaments will not be used in the yemen war but that is ridiculous einhorn many in the c.d.u. already fear that european partners will continue exporting weapons to the gulf region without including germany. the national memorial service has been held in christchurch new zealand to remember the fifty people killed in two mosque attacks
two weeks ago the gunman was a self proclaimed white supremacist who expressed anti muslim views the ceremony was led by prime minister edges into. and she channeled the grief of a nation echoing calls for a kind and more humane world through. i mean. our i mean. the names of the victims read out one by one. as tens of thousands stood in silence and in unity. remembering grieving and looking inward. what words adequately expressed a kind in suffering of fifteen min woman and children lost and so many injured. what words kept the anguish of our muslim community being the target of hatred and violence. what words expressed a grief of a city that is already know and so much. i thought there were none.
and then i came here and was met with a simple greeting. a salaam aleikum peace be upon you. in a service that focused on diversity prime minister arjun spoke of curing the viruses of hate and fear with humanity. that sentiment echoed by survivor fareed achmet who lost his wife in the attacks with words that turned a service of national remembrance into a stage for love he said he had forgiven the gunman their soil a bunch of holding the wrong action but at the same time i can not deny the fact that he is my human brother. gage human being is my brother is my sister this is my feet and this is the world a lot has struck me. alongside the optimism questions too
about new zealand's future. there's a very visible. pushback on racism and i think that this is what we hope will continue as we all need to live in a peaceful world and. hopefully we can take. the silver lining will be that i hope that we become a more inclusive society and good by. at mainz a very individual thinking keefe laid that out of the eighty two to the woods anyone who's different the service took place near the norm mosque where most of the victims were killed during friday prayer two weeks ago the wrap presents of armed police a reminder that the country may never be the same again. so weeks on from the terror attacks there's a strong message of years away from the people of new zealand and the scenes that people are now shifting focus from the initial response to long term support for
