6:06 pm
this information. right good talking to you i thank you so much for joining us that risky on the ground from day to indonesia. british prime minister is undervalued pressured to abandon the planned 4th vote on her brags that deal zisha and many within her own party have criticized this latest version saying that not enough has changed that's despite mrs may opening the door to a 2nd back seat referendum and the template customs union with the u. the prime minister urged lawmakers to grasp what she called a last chance. there is an issue about customs there is a difference of opinion in this house on the future customs arrangement with the european union that's why it's important that this house actually comes to a decision on that issue allowing 2nd referendum the 2nd reading of the withdrawal agreement bill will enable this house to come to a decision on that issue it will also enable the house to come to a decision on
6:07 pm
a 2nd referendum which i continue to believe would not be the right route for this country to go down we should deliver on the 1st referendum people suggesting anything about us let's go straight to. mass and welcome. as well as all this political turmoil there are now reports that members of cabinet are to meet with her to day one of them likely to be hoping to achieve. well it's a lot of speculation on social media as to what they want but we know that the pressure. is growing and from what we hear now it's growing from within her own cabinet we know that many most of the brics a tear leaning cabinet ministers are not happy with her new proposals and there are reports that some are saying that the concessions that she has made offers for a 2nd round of the referendum that they think that actually goes too far so we just
6:08 pm
know that the pressure on the prime minister to leave sooner rather than later is growing and seemingly by the minute. given the parliament has already rejected to mrs murray still 3 times what did she actually offer them the codes changed their minds understand what biting. not really feel i mean you see that there were not many cheers and the house there wasn't a lot of applause which is the usual thing if the prime minister gives a statement in fact it was more or less towards the end fairly fairly empty and we found out from the opposition leader jeremy corbyn that he said it's not really anything new it's just the old read hackett's and we know christian if from within she's amazing own party that members of her conservative party who have previously voted for her ideas are now saying that they will vote against it so it really looks very very dire for the prime minister at this point in time to morrow or
6:09 pm
britain votes in european parliament elections this obviously wasn't part of the original plan how is all the spreadsheet uncertainty playing into that. these elections are really all about bricks and a big winner from would we know so far is night a ferocious new party called the brakes of party and they're really a single issue party they are arguing that britain should just leave the european union he doesn't think that what people here in westminster are upset about pretensions loss of jobs if britain just leaves without any deal with the e.u. that's not his he is both a he things that is the main thing just to leave and i went to one of his rallies to see what the mood is like and also what his supporters are saying why are they cheering nigel for us and here is the story. piece that wherever nigel
6:10 pm
farage goes he's welcome back stuff here in wales for example his message to recently has betrayed the country but he's unconditionally accepted all of brussels demands during the war on eco seance referendum where i don't know what do you. it's a document drafted by the 1st year in the air. without to leave out go looking over his shoulder or rather suggest britain doesn't need to deal with brussels the main thing is to leave the queue he doesn't mention that would probably cost jobs right. there i'm afraid that there is no chance of bricks being delivered with our current 2 party system in our current government we're going to fight for it again but i believe we can do so i think the budget referendum acted rather like the sort of the genie coming out of the bottle it's not going back. in the city of peterborough over a 1000 people come to check out the new party many of them used to vote for the
6:11 pm
conservatives the carbon going to china or lawyers. and i are nothing but crooks are far from certainly treasonable people people are very angry and feel very hurt and upset that their a vote is being ignored and democracy is being trampled all over the content is that the party claims to have gained more than 100000 new members in just a. few maybe a page going in over half of the wall of change u.k. can only dream of such numbers greater johnson is in the spotlight and bar in southwest england the political newcomer who has one main goal we have to stop or for arch take this country with all the lack of values and all the lies that stamps campaigner represents he says it's a one man show it's a vehicle to get him into downing street he's taking the got the country up the
6:12 pm
garden path and over the cliff the new remain party change u.k. has a clear enemy nigel farage is bread's a party but the n.t. brags that vote is splintered and that might be one reason why the pro europeans have not been able to attract nearly the same crowds as a breadth of party who had seen bomb. 4 rows of chairs are enough to accommodate a crowd many of those who have come are disappointed by the establishment parties. this is an opportunity to see what a remain paul new voice a fresh voice has to say to me and always very impressed actually the passion with which they spoke on the passion your opinion changing for head of one of the parties to really really support the people to support. the big parties are being punished in the e.u. elections and it looks like the populists will be the biggest with. mass in the london so whichever way breaks it goes back it it does look as though
6:13 pm
this party i like it to be the big winner. yes they are they will be that's for sure when you believe the opinion polls are leading in the high fatties really far ahead of the big parties and nights for us has really cleverly shifted the public opinion that many people now think the real brags of is a brags that without a deal and also he's galvanized this unhappiness about what's going on in the bricks and process and now what he's saying is that here the police of crooks they have betrayed the country and many people indeed all believing what he says. mass in london thank you now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world south africa lawmakers have reelected several. presidents of the country for life after his possible see his return to power in national elections as expected
6:14 pm
a brazilian nominee for position will be inaugurated on saturday i will name a deputy president and cabinet shortly after. united states has said that it's suspects the syrian government of using chemical weapons again this time in a weekend tack in the northwest of the country where the army was targeting the few remaining rebel held positions washington has threatened reprisals if it's proved that chemical weapons were used the observers have disputed the claims. austrian president alexander found a bell and how sworn in an interim minority government including 4 new cabinet members move follows from the mass resignation of ministers from the chancellor's far right junior coalition partner in the wake of the video that raised allegations of corruption. and ukraine's new president former comedian volodymyr has then ski house announced his new administration is given several important post of
6:15 pm
former t.v. colleagues who like him up political novices seen here during his inauguration this week the closest of president selenski has previously come to political offices play the president in a hit t.v. series. let's get more on the best from our correspondent david stern in the ukrainian capital kiev while can david tell us more about these political novices in high office. well it's raised a number of eyebrows there was an expectation that there would be new people brought into the administration perhaps not these people we would we're seeing are a lot of new faces but in particular people who mr selenski worked with in his production company and also on his hit comedy show in particular said a gay chef here is the 1st assistant to the president he was mr selenski partner and now this is being received in any number of ways some people see it as
6:16 pm
a positive it's new blood other people obviously are saying that these people have no experience and wonder what they're actually bringing to the job but it should also be said that this is a celebrity doesn't point the majority of the ministers a son by parliament so he may be trying to get loyalists or people that he trusts as close to miss possible and there's also been a lot of control say about the appointment of a lawyer who used to work for one of ukraine's richest man tell us about well that exactly that's mr andre bogged down he works for. he's one of ukraine's richest men or as they're called here all of darks mr calmly skee is accused was accused by the previous government of embezzling more than $5000000000.00 from his bank charges which he denies now he was in self-imposed exile for about 2 years and he came back last week mr buck down as i say was a lawyer to him he's also advised mr selenski now it's not clear obviously what the
6:17 pm
thais are there but there everybody is watching very closely what mr selenski will do in the case and well obviously what mr bogden influence or lack or perhaps lack of influence will be there so what one of his appointments tell us about how presidents and unscathed is going to run things. well it's still very early. just over 2 days since the since the inauguration obviously it shows that mr selenski is looking for people whom he can trust now as i said he doesn't appoint the majority of the ministers he called these early elections in particular to get a parliament with hope with which he can work and this is going to be in about 2 months time it remains to be seen what the outcome of that will be this is the less his party which is not in parliaments completely new is pulling more than 40 percent at the time but a lot there's a lot of time to go before the parliamentary elections and obviously mr selenski
6:18 pm
hopes to have a positive outcome david stern care thank you. kenya next where hippopotamuses a facing a new threat not only are being targeted by hunters for they're also having to compete with other animals for twin doing food sources as a result van numbers are also doing a new study has revealed that any further reduction in hippo numbers could also spell disaster for the health of the region's riffs 100 grazes on the shores of kenya's lake 91 of a the 1500 hippos that make this lake its high but the grass here is increasingly in short supply. locals often bring back cattle down to the grasslands fringing the lake to feed the competition for food between wildlife and domestic animals is driven to the extreme by drought and climate change. it means that people are bringing the livestock into protected areas is national parks and reserves and
6:19 pm
they're competing with the animals like peoples and these poor animals don't have any other source of food they literally. if they hippos die the rivers and lakes could die with them hippos chomp through huge amounts of grass every night and this grass contains a precious element called silica floating in the water during the day that digestion kicks in they then excrete vast quantities of dung into the water the silica in the hippo dung is absolutely vital for the health of africa's waterways a new study has found it helps curb algae blooms that killed marine life. so to have healthy waterways we need healthy hippos but hippos don't gonna much sympathy with the locals just last year several people have died from hippo attacks have been and many many cases of people killed by hippos and this means people don't like to tolerate people they were often killed it's been in the press in
6:20 pm
kenya quite a lot. of local people calling the us to come and kill hippos because they feel like their lives are endangered. with that cattle and the hippos all competing for dwindling grasslands the biggest loser of this fight might be our environment. well from the highest fogel he's a professor of biodiversity university it's also director general of the city said natural history museum welcome to day doubly so why should anyone who is not in kenya be worried about there being fewer hippos on the planet so 1st of all i think africa is looking at a very very dynamic development for there are some predictions that say up to 2050 african population is going to double. so i think it's very important that africa has the opportunity to develop and part of what development social
6:21 pm
development has to be a healthy environment you want to live in an area which supplies you with clean air clean water. and fertile soils that's what we appreciate in europe so we hope that the africans can enjoy these same basic privileges the problem that we often face just being human beings is that we deal with the ends before the importance and if you are in one of these communities who's existed who look at dwindling resources and you have to fight for. that grassland or the reverse against a big base like this then you're going to deal with the urgent you're going to kill him so you can you can have that resource rather than look to the long term you're absolutely right you're absolutely right that's what europe does that's what people in africa are forced to do the problem with the environment however is. that if you
6:22 pm
only deal with the urgent and forget the important the environment is going to come back at you with a vengeance that you've never experienced before so hippos are vitally important to keep water quality at a level that it is usable for agriculture that people can drink it the same function funnily enough and this is why where this toy in europe is performed by frogs and tadpoles they are not the big beasts but they also make our water palatable and help water quality to be at the level we want to enjoy so biology is vitally important for us as humans and if we take short term measures it will come back to us in the medium to long term except that we have been hearing those sorts of warnings certainly as long as i've been alive. and we're still here you and i are still here but in africa about 100000000 people are already on the
6:23 pm
move due to climate change and bar mental degradation 100000000 currently so this isn't the thing that the but that brings us back to full circle as it works are many of the problems that europe for instance faces to ending resources in africa if you want to if you're looking for a reason why people over this site should pay attention to winning resources over there mean that those people are going to come over here to try and establish a life so. all of us all humans on the planets are africans humanity evolved in africa humans evolved in africa and spread from there so you would never meet anybody else than somebody of african origin and the natural route from africa north is europe but look at this for example here you have this funny looking plant i'm a botanist that's the medic aston perry winkle it's spread all over the world
6:24 pm
however extinct in its native habitat it's fantastic cure all of very important cancers including hodgkin's lymphoma extinct in the wild so that means the good genetic potential that this plant originally had to find perhaps even better cures is gone and that's something that's very much important to the west but it comes out of africa so who needs to do was now then i think we face a very interesting and today's world but a versity day and i think we are facing a very interesting question that challenges us as humans we have to fight 2 enemies at the same time social inequality globally and locally and the destruction of nature both of them are intricately linked both of them need to be solved now us as humans on world biodiversity day we've given us
6:25 pm
a very posh latin name homo sapiens thinking man now man we know let's talk about thinking and what that means because otherwise we are not worthy of this name good talking to you that's something i should take with me i think about a professor you had as a focal thank you thank you. a kenyan author and gay rights activist binyavanga why united in the has died in nairobi he won the 2002 caine prize for african writing but he may be best known in kenya for a work published a years later about his sexuality and hiv positive status he was only 48 years old i am a harmless sexual mom with the upfront title of binyavanga wainaina as bombshell short story in 2014 weiner wrote the tale from his late mother as an imagined last chapter to his 2011 memoirs while that accounted failed to mention his sexuality his coming out pulled no punches so i did come out i came out because you know
