will but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country i love. journey me now from london it is obvious correspondent barbara ways and barbara to isn't me doing it to me a wasn't a person to show emotions today we got a glimpse of her feelings what does this resignation mean to her do you think. for her of course this means failure nothing else because she knows that she doesn't really leave a political heritage to countries throughout her time and government has been so absolutely immobilized by breck's it that nothing much got done she has no big successes you know passing new laws through column into our making you know so sure are the reaffirms it was all sort of turning around and in the end she couldn't
4:04 pm
deliver it those were her words so often she had promised that and we finally saw the feelings off trees and made the woman who had always seemed so i'm touchable and so i'm touched by the potions she suffered at the humiliation she suffered from own party particularly so this is the enduring image that will probably stay from her time in office to resume a living in cheers and at the end showing your frailty and her humanity. well put barbara and we'll get more reactions to her resignation in just a moment but 1st let's take a look back on the highs and lows of terror is the mean 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 mae bot and it was with the same robotic determination that she would try and push through bricks that.
4:05 pm
when made took over the premiership from david cameron britain had just voted to leave europe may has self had campaigned to remain in the year yet despite her own convictions she would make it her personal mission to deliver a breath sit 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 of may could deliver was not the bracks that many in britain had voted for. and attempt to get a stronger mandate for her bracks
4:06 pm
a vision backfired 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 the u.p.a. in order to govern but maybe wouldn't be deterred smiling through gritted teeth she carried on with the task of pushing through bracks it come what may bricks it means bricks it and we're going to make a success of it bricks it needs frex it i'm very clear bricks it does mean bracks it's. empty phrases drawing ridicule from the opposition all we care is even more bizarre soundbites remember when we. marriage for actually means breaks it then we had liberal break search and now we have ambitious managed divergence. and she got flak from within her own ranks with several of her key ministers
4:07 pm
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. 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 dogfight 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
4:08 pm
take part in the european parliament elections muster talks between the opposition labor party and mates conservative government figures a compromise over break that broke down because lunging the country back into uncertainty may's final attempt to repackage her bracks a deal fails in the end it was too much for may to survive. so barbara finally the moment is here today is the man has been forced to step down and this week the reaction to her resignation has and. we must hope that she doesn't read the most of them because many who are now talking about her having stepped down damning her was faint praise her maybe the success of boris johnson for instance he talks about series i'm a being a stealthy kill and patient woman and his party called the injuries
4:09 pm
a man's personal nemesis the bricks of a hardliner jacob riis mog he says nothing in office became her like the leaving office ouch is the only thing you can say that the leader of the lib dems says that she all of us try to make the wrong compromises which isn't very complimentary either only one of the labor women harriet harman reminds people off driesum a being a human being and a woman in the dominant leaving millions world trying to do a very difficult job and the labor leader jeremy carvin of course insists this occasion he tries to set out his political intentions and his political will. yes we want to prevent and no deal breaks it and we will do everything in parliament to prevent. but the reality is a new conservative leader isn't going to solve the problem. there has to be another
4:10 pm
opportunity for the people of this country to decide who they want in their government how they want the government to be run what the long term structure is that government i think we did a general election we don't need another tory leader installed by tory or place. so that banner of us of course the leader of the labor party again calling a for a general election this march and the return of the speculation right now but are there any hints who could become to reason is successor. it is amazing because by the minute they seem to be more cherries standing up and saying let me do it let me have the job the latest we heard was that even great him brady the forman off the committee of the backbenchers who finally brought to reason made down is now standing as his successor jeremy hunt the foreign minister is among them dominic robb the form of brecht's it minister who had stepped down after over
4:11 pm
his disagreements was to reason me about the shape of great city and then of course we have the front runner boris johnson who can hardly wait and was sort of like scrambling are ready to get going and to get throw himself into this leadership competition which will begin immediately after treason may has stepped down on june 7th however which is in officially and behind the scenes already going on for days so far it's just supposed to have the nose for the nose in front because the party grassroots they like him and he has some support in the party but you never know with conservatives the party is a rather snake pit when it comes to the choices of personnel and we might yet be surprised right barbara visit sunny in front of the british parliament in london a real pleasure to talk to you.

4:16 pm
climbing very slow there is even some queuing on 2 days ago there were people waiting for more than 2 hours on the summit ridge and now it's 1800 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 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 that they wait for an hour for a 2nd or for a certain weather window and only then start landing mountain their view you're 35 be on everything it's the highest mountain in the one just how dangerous is it even
4:17 pm
without these current problems that we're seeing. well at the base of everest on the south side you have to cross a really dangerous ice fall it's about 600 meters high and the ice over pleasure is coming steeply town and it breaks out in crevices in hours and sarah and this is the 1st really dangerous art everybody who wants to climb everest should be aware of that he's taking a huge risk just crossing this icefall 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 driving arrest 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 oxygen and once you have been relying on the oxygen and suddenly it stops are you going to
4:18 pm

say the procedure is ethically dubious or worse one should wanting to become a mother and have children is a completely natural need and since surrogacy is not possible in germany the uterus transplant was the only choice we had. and. i think it's problematic to do everything medically possible to fulfill the desire to bear children because there's simply no life threatening disease here we should really be much more cautious. the researchers now want to gain more experience and soon create a uterus transplantation center. to us forces in the bundesliga as regular season may be over but after finishing 3rd from the bottom struck on still have to fight for their place in the top flight they faced the 2nd divisions 3rd place team in in the 1st leg of a playoff on thursday and it turned out to be a thriller. stuart got struggled to make the home advantage count in the early
