3:03 pm
will but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country i love. british prime minister to resign me announcing her resignation for more the story i have with me why i think she's a briggs it and business analyst was given to you to reason it really showed any emotion but today we got a glimpse of her feelings yes and many people are saying it's a shame she didn't show more of that emotion throughout her tenure in downing street because we really saw how passionate she has been passionately she's been taking her job and how strongly she has felt about being prime minister and particularly about her judy of getting breck's it through and making sure that the u.k. leaves the e.u. a job that she's failed to do and that is what is so difficult for her the writing has been on the wall for a considerable amount of time but now suddenly this week it's come to this crunch
3:04 pm
because she said to her m.p.'s of i want to put forward my bill my breakfast bill but i am going to offer the possibility of a 2nd referendum and i want to also say that we should have closer ties with the e.u. and many in her party really dislike that one of her cabinet ministers resigning this week and the back benches of those m.p.'s in her party saying enough is enough this woman has to go and today she finally fell on her sword and she was under huge pressure to leave and she's basically been pushed out but why isn't she going straight to reality it's a good question but i think the main reason why is because there is going to be a state visit from the u.s. president donald trump at the beginning of june and she we all know that she has a difficult relationship with donald trump it would be awful if there was automatically a leadership contest going on within the party so she's able to stick that out there were some other events coming up as well including the celebration of the
3:05 pm
d.-day landings and she stays for that and then she stepped down as leader of the conservative party remains prime minister until the party has chosen its next. so a dignified exit not just rushing out and we have all reactions to terrorism is a statement in a bet but 1st let's take a look at some of the highs and lows of terrorism is time as prime minister. even when she tried to be cool to reason may couldn't help but look a little stiff her leadership style earned her the nickname may part and it was with the same robotic determination that she would try and push through bricks that . when made took over the premiership from david cameron britain had just voted to leave europe may has self had campaigned to remain in here yet despite her own convictions she would make it her personal mission to deliver a bricks
3:06 pm
a deal for the british people. following the referendum we face a time of great national change and i know because we're great britain that we will rise to the challenge as we leave the european union we will forge a forge a bold new positive role for ourselves in the world but forging that new role would prove much harder than anticipated made negotiations appear to be doomed from the start the e.u. loath to see the u.k. leave the union made it clear that there would be no cherry picking it soon became evident that the bracks it may could deliver was not the break that many in britain had voted for. and attempt to get a stronger mandate for her bracks of vision but 5 spectacularly tough to make or snap elections in june 2017 she ended up weaker than before short of a majority in parliament and forced to make a deal with the hardline northern irish do you piece in order to govern but maybe wouldn't be deterred smiling through gritted teeth she carried on with the task of
3:07 pm
pushing through bracks it's come what may brett's it means bricks it and we're going to make a success of it bricks it needs. bret's it i'm very clear brett's it does mean rex it's. empty phrases drawing ridicule from the opposition all we care is even more bizarre soundbites 6 remember when we had fractionally means breaks it then we had liberal breaks it and now we have ambitious managed divergence. and she got flak from within her own ranks with several of her key ministers resigning over the breakfast issue for. finally against all the odds and after months of negotiations london and brussels agreed on a draft breck's a deal e.u. leaders approved it but may fail to drum up enough support for the deal at home.
3:08 pm
at the last minute she was forced to call off a parliamentary vote after it became clear that she would not get the deal through . a desperate last ditch attempts to meet european leaders followed to try and get some concessions to make the deal more palatable to her critics but to no avail just as members of her own party seize the moment to challenge her leadership but may survive the vote of no confidence amongst tory m.p.'s. a dog's fight over her deal ensued 3 times it went before parliament and 3 times it was rejected by m.p.'s. it was postponed and meant britain had to take part in the european parliament elections muster talks between the opposition labor party and mates conservative governments seeking a compromise over breakfast broke down lunging the country back into uncertainty
3:09 pm
may's final attempt to repackage her bracks a deal fails in the end it was too much for may to survive. and this resignation has been long. it is now finally happened reaction on social media alex yes and and huge reaction in person as well and the leader of the labor party we saw him in that report jeremy corbyn has given his reaction in which he's basically calling for a general election let's hear what he has to say yes we want to prevent an o.t. or breaks it and we will do everything in parliament to prevent a no do but the reality is a new conservative leader isn't going to solve the problem there has to be another opportunity for the people of this country to decide who that want their government how they want the government to be run what the long term strategy is that government i think we did a general election we don't need another tory leader installed by tory a base. and there has been
3:10 pm
a lot of reaction on social media to say britain's new populist nigel farage you know heads up this new bret's it party has tweeted about to resume a and her previous message david cameron it is difficult he said not to feel for mrs may but politically she misjudged the mood of the country and her party to tory leaders have now gone whose instincts were pro e.u. either the party learns that lesson or it dies and also we have heard from the former british foreign secretary boris johnson again we saw him in that report he's already announced his intention to succeed to resume a and he said it was a very dignified statement thank you for your stoical service to our country and the conservative party is now time to follow her urgings to come together and to deliver bracks it which is now his mission absolutely he's a fine one to talk so people had written him off boris johnson until recently that's right because many felt that he wasn't a good foreign secretary and was
3:11 pm
a bit of a lot of things stock and in many capitals around the world but you can't write him off and that is because he has appeal across the political spectrum particularly before the issue of bracks it and what he particularly appeals to the conservative membership 120000 conservative members will vote for who should be the next tory leader he talks the polls with them and he's considered to be the one person who can really take on nigel farage the head of them party the man really who brought all of this about so we don't know who is going to be the next prime minister the next leader of the conservative party but it certainly somebody who is very likely to be that process oh interesting alex 1st one thing thank you very much for your analysis. so how is one of this going down in brussels i asked you dumbass brust is very much if there'd been any reactions to news it is a means of resignation we've had some reactions by now from leaders in the european
3:12 pm
union they're not really saying anything about the course forward so you have for example the german chancellor i'm going to macro who's a good knowledge of knowledge in that this is in with respect and still hoping for an orderly brags that nothing's really changed there you have leo varadkar the prime minister of ireland who of course his country has the most to lose from in order to bragg's it and basically saying that there are a lot of things that will with stand brags that because the 2 countries are close partners the only one who was a little more precise so far was the french president and mother when the call one of his spokespeople said that they needed that clarity about the future brags of course of the u.k. as quickly as possible all right you might say we've heard that one before and it is true but it tells you something that a certain urgency is felt once again here in brussels and this all of this comes in the middle of european elections britain actually voted on those elections in those
3:13 pm
elections yesterday so what impact is this political turmoil in the u.k. had on the campaign. yes it is again overshadowing some of the topics that europeans actually think are important if you look at the list in the polls what europeans want to talk about you have unemployment jobs youth unemployment especially some say it's migration some say it's climate change and it's not bragg's it but still this is a topic as you can see right here as we're sitting here talking about this a rida rags it always makes the news and overshadows everything else but there is one good point for the rest of the european union it seems to have forged everyone a little closer together than before that at least if you look at the brutal ratings for the e.u. in the $27.00 so all the countries except for the united kingdom then the appropriate all ratings for the e.u. have gone up continuously across the board ever since brags it happened right max off by the dabney's brussels beer chief thank you very much. as i mentioned tourism

3:20 pm
the death toll on the was highest peak this week alone 272 indians and a 65 or austrian lost their lives mountaineers have long been complaining that the mountain is becoming too crowded and bottlenecks are developing risking lives poor weather has also been causing major problems. joining me via skype from southwest in germany is a leading german climber raf deal with raf now you've attempted to climb everest 1st of all explain to us why we are having this sudden spate of deaths on the mountain we have a very difficult season this year there were very few weather windows so far on this of. the world does 2 the 2nd one is the ongoing and on the north side on the tibetans are there is only one well in those. lauriston a time a lot of people are concentrating just on the same day most young saying day to
3:21 pm
climb the mountain and reach the highest point and that makes the speed of the climb very slow there is some viewing on 2 days ago there were people waiting for more than 2 hours on the summit ridge at about 8800 and this makes the whole thing blurry where it's slow and very very dangerous and why is it so overcrowded there have the authorities been just handing out too many permits. well this is one reason you cannot give the responsibility only to the government for handing out too many permits it would be a possibility of course on the new policy side also to reduce the amount of permits like it was done on the chinese side but it's mostly also a kind of self responsibility of the climbers that they decide not to go on the most crowded days that they are a little bit more patient and then they wait for an hour for a 2nd or for a certain weather window and only then start landing the mountain there are you
3:22 pm
yourself have been on everything it's the highest mountain in the one just how dangerous is it even without these current problems that we're seeing. at the base of everest on the south side you have to cross a really dangerous ice hole it's about 600 meters high in the ice or a pleasure is coming steeply town and breaks out in crevices in the hours and sarah and this is the 1st really dangerous ark everybody who wants to climb everest should be aware of that he's taking a huge risk just crossing this ice hole and there is no other way. then further on there is not there are not so much object if dangers but just the sheer amount of people climbing everest makes the danger and it's all because as i already described the people are slowing down themselves some of them are some of the climbers are running short of supplemental oxygen or even running out of stock
3:23 pm
oxygen and once you have been relying on the oxygen and suddenly it stops are you going to have enough anymore it's really dangerous and we learned of people die just from a lack of the not an oxygen that's her thought the biggest problems they're mountain and climb around and doing with it thank you very much for sharing your insights with us ended up near sure. it's been a 3 decade fight for equality but on friday today taiwan has made history by becoming the 1st place in asia to legalize same sex marriage the 1st gay men and lesbian women have been tying the knot. a historic day for taiwan feels with a case these couples are among the very 1st to tie the knot on the day the island's landmark decision to legalize same sex marriage came into force taiwan became the 1st place to legalize same sex marriage in asia placing it at the vanguard of the growing gay rights movement in the region it's the momentous day that many couples
