brigs it on to whoever is lucky or unlucky enough to get her job. a short while ago i spoke to bandage among he's a pro e.u. activist and the vice president of the european movement a lobbying association promoting dialogue about the e.u. between politics and civil society i asked about the growing worry about a no deal breck's it so nobody knows really what is going on in westminster these states so what are we going to have is for sure commission member states of the e.u. would 27 who will have a clear line what can harm the e.u. as such so they will try to avoid the. brics that and the brics that movement is just one example of the e.u. sentiment that's that's growing and the entire block. how strong is citizen support for the e.u. . you know the last results for projections for someone to another learns show that
12:05 pm
there is so much. for your approach so the the real threat is there of course but in the end of the day i guess that especially brics it made people thinking about what it means when you get a lot of the e.u. a lot of. others euro skeptic governments and italy and hungary how does you plan to deal with that in the future. nobody of these mentioned governments wants to leave the e.u. the e.u. is a democracy which is also scrambling on the right policy that applied to climate change policy the right for migration policy of course these other things what everybody has to deal with but nobody wants to leave the u. we need a strong positive and no 2 act to elect a new commission president that's comes next and that makes the stronger when the people go to vote and also vote for constructive parties. while the polls are indicating that the brake the party for example will be the strongest force in the
12:06 pm
british elections. how strong can that parliament really be a big part of it is made up of euro skeptics it's not a big problem which is made up of 2 big part of my point of view of course but this is not at all a blocking majority or anything abrupt the minority if you want that just that the european elections will show that the many countries the center will hold very strong and already the netherlands showed 1st good indications and when you go to ireland don't have another wave everything is a project to predict and this is not clear yet but we're going to have something that has yet to can deal with with democratic parties and a real fight about the right policy and that would make the anti european parties much more calm vented to mancow you activists the vice president of the european movement thank you very much. it's day 3 of voting in the e.u.

12:09 pm
emphasizing the toughness on trade issues which is been something that before him really going back to the 1980 s. he 1st got this idea in his mind that japan was using unfair trade practices against the united states and and this is something that through the decades has never really diverged his own thinking so you know he feels that during his presidency he wants to be the person who solves this issue as he sees it and to make a fair trade relationship between the united states and japan was scheduled to attend the g. 20 summit and osaka and only 6 weeks why this visit now well this visit so now is. basically a social and symbolic visit it's not really one where a great deal of substance is expected to be decided the main issue involved here is the is the interim into the new emperor. he needs to receive
12:10 pm
a state visit or and symbolically speaking to have the u.s. president be the one to come 1st or something the japanese want and prime minister using this to very much flatter the ego of trump which has been his strategy basically since trump was elected to keep telling him he's a great leader he's important that japan needs him and this is the way that the administration seeks to achieve its own policy objectives. has been courting for quite some time has he gotten anything out of it for his country. well it's mainly an issue of damage control. and this trade issue is a is a primary example of this trump basically wants to make demands of japan that the japanese don't want to give and so it's trying as hard as you can to stay on trumps the good side so that trumps demands don't become too onerous and to try to blunt
12:11 pm

12:12 pm
formula one is the gladiator sport the ultimate motor sport formula is the technology of the future it's where car makers develop their electric motors it's much more relaxed it's easier for families to get close to the rice it's not as noisy so it's much more child friendly also the race comes to the people because it's in the city so it's easier for people to come along. so they're very different beasts but of course formula one is still king. till germany's top teams go head to head in the cup final later today here and berlin when his league champions byron munich face lights finished 3rd in the league this season their most recent encounter and scoreless draw and this cup final also promises to be another closely fun. it's one of the biggest games on the german football calendar but the cup final means more than that for all you and robin and from chris bury the vi and legends have the chance to win one last medal in their final game for
