a lot of m.p.'s in his own party who have previously not bacterias amaze attempts to get a deal done here now as of parliament and they are backing boris johnson there are also labor opposition m.p.'s even though labor as a party is whipping against the deal but there are some m.p.'s who have said they will back the deal and they will have wanted to listen to their constituencies who want to move on from rex and start the next chapter basically of the negotiations however it's really not certain at all and there's also crucially there's an amendment so it's another vote and that precedes the vote on gross johnson steel which would call for an extension effectively and if this goes through then the boris johnson's deal you know will not happen for sure at the end of october so what will this be what he wants what he really wants is to be mr bracks if he wants to be the prime minister who has. he is being seen by the electorate as fighting

1:05 pm
favorable words there by the opposition leader why are his not alone though it's of why are so many m.p.'s so opposed to this deal. there are numerous reasons 1st of all it's standards and regulation you've had to jeremy colbert and the labor party a feeling that in the future the u.k. could try and undercut european standards and be a competitor with a much lower support for for workers' rights for example then there's the overall economic impact this deal has been proven by analysts who have less impact on the u.k. economy than the deals that reason may has brought home it looks for a much looser likely relationship with the e.u. in the future not the close partnership that reason may was hoping to strike so that's another reason and then there are other m.p.'s particularly the northern irish m.p.'s who fear that the. the union between northern ireland and the united
1:06 pm
kingdom could be endangered they don't see that they're being treated in the same way as as the rest of the u.k. so this is why they oppose it's a whole range of reasons why m.p.'s are against it and finally one concern is that the transition period even if threads that did happen now on paper then there is a very short period to actually strike a free trade deal to strike any deal with the european union and at the end if that doesn't happen within the train transition time and those johnson has said we're not going to then also an extension then the result could still be there do you care leaves without any deal and all the consequences that would have for the economy for security for the relationship with the european partners on big milestone for us in london i'm sure this will not be the last time we speak today and thank you. now to some of the other stories making
