a member of the need to check that and then and how will this transition period this transfer of power work when can we expect fresh elections. but according to the also because the one hundred m. to the creation. come to you will need in the upcoming days to be clear that the grid you didn't see the economic after that there had to be ok that had been cut that been psylocke would take over and you we serve as a caretaker presidential didn't make ninety days and during these there you had this transitional period new presidential election was the organizing but then said that it will not be known to be a country and do we know what will happen to those in beautifully because close's circle to the people who have supported him. i think it's too early he knew what

we leave in a timely and orderly way this debate this division cannot drag on much longer it is pushing members of parliament and everyone else under immense pressure as it is doing damage to our politics despite the best efforts of m.p.'s the process that the house of commons has tried to lead has not come up with an answer so today i am taking action to break the logjam i'm offering to sit down with the leader of the opposition and to try to agree a plan that we would both stick to to ensure that we leave the european union and that we do so with a deal any plan would have to agree the current withdrawal agreement it has already been negotiated with the twenty seven other members and the e.u. has repeatedly said that it cannot and will not be reopened. or this theresa may
there of saying she's going to cross the political divide and cross the english channel to save bricks it's all to sort this out tonight i'm joined here in the studio by our bricks and analyst alex forrest whiting and in london our correspondent there must be going to start with you the prime minister today saying that she wants to extend her hand to the opposition labor party the leader jeremy corbyn to work together to push forward what has jeremy corbin said today at all. but he said that he was happy to meet with series a made sit down with that there would be no conditions attached to it however we do know that he's also being ruined by all this in his party as to how much he really wants to help the reason made to get to have breaks it over the line so far the labor party could say well this is a tory bragg's it and it's not how it drags it but now at the eleventh hour it's reason may is extending our hand many of said she should have done it
a long time ago she did really shy to build a consensus and parliament at the beginning of the gregson pro says not to find out that at the end of it that the of that she negotiated with the european union is really not backed by parliament that's the reason there was a break that impasse and she has no other choice but to to make some moves that she hasn't tried before and this is what she's come up with a labor have said that they will sit down and we work with yeah i know over the our plan and labor seems to be willing to work with her so that's positive and you know when you've got things a winding up in the right just the right order and it looks like it's going to work boris johnson has to chime in and he's not impressed by what reese may do we know far as johnson the former foreign secretary who desperately desperately wants to wheeze a maze job he is not happy with her tonight surprise surprise boris johnson obviously very. happen he says for the u.k. to leave the e.u.
without a deal he's on the side of the party have launched a group of them where they also would be happy with that so he's speaking out for them saying not happy with what she said particularly not happy that she's dating the jeremy corbyn and neither are other members of the european research group. that group of brics it is so what she's done she's been previously reaching out to these people desperately trying to get on board to support her deal it hasn't worked and finally to paris she's reaching out across to others to those who are war in favor of a soft brick said to see if they can help instead yeah big it is not just wars johnson you know made wants to pull out the dagger right now i mean there are a number of conservatives who want to get rid of juries and how long do you think this will be able to stand this pressure. well she has been on the pressure for really considerable time she has failed time and again to get her deal
through palm and even loyal colleagues in the parliament have said that she really needs to go on the other hand we all know that time is short and somehow it conclusion must be reached because most m.p.'s and also the prime minister from all we know don't want the u.k. to leave the european union in just over a week's time and have no plan in place we've had the national security advisor there was a report that has been leaked it's dangerous for the u.k. to leave without a deal let's unload all the economic implications we've heard from business again that see the prime minister really needs to get back together so people are putting their hopes in half and there is really not a lot of time to go for a lengthy lengthy process and find another prime minister really not at the moment i think that seems to be the consensus here in london at the moment all right our
