i bryan thomas thanks so much for joining us with concerns growing that britain could exit the e.u. without an agreement the german chancellor is heading to ireland today the only use state with a land border with britain ireland's economy could take the biggest hit from any possible disorderly breck's in germany's very concerned about the security situation there as well in london prime minister theresa may is holding more talks today with opposition leader labor leader jeremy corbyn in a new push for a compromise on that she needs to present a plan to ease leaders by april the ten after they rejected her request for a brief extension may and or been met yesterday but corman said more work needs to be done to find common ground. we have. discussion hasn't been as much
change as i expected but we are continuing to have some discussions tomorrow morning explore some of the technical issues surrounding it. and the meeting was useful but inconclusive. a new round of crisis talks today in london and on america or in ireland for perspective let's bring in our correspondent bigg boss in the british capital and our brussels bureau chief max hoffmann there a good day to both of you if we can start with you baggage with a new deadline looming more cross aisle talks today can they produce results results. it's not going to be very easy we have had reactions from party members from both sides we have heard m.p.'s here in the house is of course in the house of commons described jeremy corbyn as a marxist and an end to see might and how would it be a good idea to hand bricks it over to him we have had reports that the party base
the conservative party base has stopped campaigning for local elections because they're so incensed about this decision by its reason to approach jeremy corbett and also from the labor side they are worried that this could be in the words of one m.p. i speak to yesterday it could be a trap that trees and me might from is something to jeremy called the nose off the brakes it possibly membership in the customs union which is what labor is advocating for but then how would it be guaranteed to actually be in play how would it be set in stone so to speak couldn't there be a next prime minister who would that just backtrack on this so it's really against the odds but again there is a necessity to talk and to move this forward because otherwise u.k. will leave at the end of next week with no deal ok max there are a lot of options out there and some real concerns today what's the minimum that brussels wants to see from london to agree to a second deadline the way. if the u.k.
wants to extend beyond the twelfth of april so the end of next week then they would have to participate in the european elections the only exception to this is if they agreed to the withdrawal agreement so we're talking about the exit deal that has already been rejected three times by the house of commons but this is a slight new detail if you're really following bragg's it closely you'll know what i'm talking about because up until yesterday the deadline for passing the withdrawal agreement in the eyes of the european union was the end of march but now it seems that you consider is there still a possibility to pass it until the tenth of april when the leaders will come together here in brussels for a special summit. the head of the e.u. commission said that yesterday so on wednesday and this might give a little more momentum to the choices that the u.k.
has you know give the talks to begin are continuing there in london but what happens if the make or been discussions fail to produce any results. well m.p.'s here in london i have instructed are on the process of instructing the prime minister to to then go to brussels and seek an extension there's been a bill passed which is quite extraordinary where the house of commons the parliamentarians are taking over the breaks of process and they want to force the prime minister to go to brussels and if there is no conclusion to ask for more time it just needs to pass the house of lords and then come back to the commons but this bill is very much in the making so the fear is here that there will be no deal at the end of next week and palm and ariens and also the prime minister want to avoid it but if there is no agreement then on the twelfth of april the u.k. will leave. as we just heard from to get along with the no deal bracks it is very much still a possibility on a macro is in dublin today for talks does the e.u.
think that ireland is prepared for what a possible no deal would mean for its border with northern ireland. the e.u. is demonstrating its preparedness in these days because you mentioned brian they started on wednesday and that they would be reinstalled immediately with the new deal breaks it on the borders between the u.k. and the european union all this is part of putting more pressure into the pressure cooker trying to show to the u.k. listen this is these are the consequences you are not prepared for this but the irish border is a whole different matter because there's so much history there so much political problems there and it's unclear whether ireland would really reinstall a hard border or at least check that hard border that would immediately emerge between northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland which is part of the euro european union in the case of
a no deal bragg's it so it appears that she is going to ireland to look deep into the eyes of the prime minister and ask him are you still on board with this are you sure are you prepared for what might happen then something that we've seen lately a lot here in brussels the irish are really the crucial factor here that's what makes this whole situation so unique by the way because no other country has this political situation has this border situation and the rest of the e.u. twenty seven will follow the lead of the irish there often brussels becket moss in london thanks very much for all that perspective. let's check in with some of the other stories making news today a preliminary report into last month's your ethiopian airlines crash has found the true performed all required steps but were on not able to control the aircraft ethiopia's station minister delivering those findings he said that it's ortiz should ensure the problems with the boeing seven thirty seven max control system
