was thrust deeper into political turmoil this week after tracy may's proposed e.u. divorce deal was dealt a crushing defeat in parliament the following day the prime ministers saw off a confidence vote called by the leader of the opposition even the country no closer to a breakthrough on breaks it is a quick recap of the drama. i was brought up who. are you know what i'm doing with. the country and the fear in those old me to you frankly i have little confidence that five hundred years from now we're going to resolve these questions with jet blue steel we reject this deal because of god we could do. you know use the right two hundred and then you know you still don't let four hundred thirty to show you the new sadly i mean it is clear that the house
5:03 pm
does not support this deal. they rewarded resolving i. would be able to choose to come look at a launch. to the right one hundred fifty. dollars to the larry three hundred twenty five please at this house has expressed its confidence in the government to. look at the. other way that was. in the wake of those votes the publication of a unique government document on thursday added to the controversy over briggs it's the paper expose the possibility of holding a second referendum and estimates that the whole process would take up to
5:04 pm
a year that includes seven months to lay the legal groundwork and a further three months at least for testing the actual question the leak came as a surprise to many as trisomy has remained adamant that she will deliver on bikes it while downing street confirmed that the paper is genuine it denied the government has been actively planning for a second vote it says the paper is purely for illustrated purposes and has reiterated the p.m.'s position that britain will leave the e.u. meanwhile jeremy corbyn has set out the conditions under which he would support a second vote. all the options are on the table including the public vote option which we made clear in our conference motion which was i've have to remind you unanimously agreed by our conference last september eleventh even before the referendum i remember talking to some of the people organizing the leave campaign and i had imagined that they would have a whole show drawing of parts of the european legislation they don't have to go up or so they can quite have to live with them so they come out of the traps of to go
5:05 pm
further if they want to and so this is what we're for against it it took three years to begin to make that process and that's partly because the conservative party is very divided on what to do the opposition is very divided so we have all these divisions and they consul cross parties and they cut across the country to everything paul has found that if a second referendum work to be held a majority of voters would choose to remain in the e.u. it shows that support for maine is at its highest level since the twenty sixth vote and as polyploid explained a rerun of a referendum wouldn't be without precedent. thanks to. the people may have voted but the british parliament is in political turmoil over what the u.k.'s departure from lately you should look like some politicians get their way whether it should happen at all this issue but to the elected what else can we possibly do. to the british public to go back and. reconsider this breaks it is
5:06 pm
a cause of deception but most of those people that probably still help you know why we bothering to leave and we still subject to all the rules over on the continent these slighted politicians will be hoping that perhaps the imperfect but stable relationship between brussels and london could be heading towards their union if a deal is impossible and no one wants no deal then who will finally have the courage to say. was the only positive solution is so if you think the people have voted then think again governments have been known to ignore a referendum result or to. ireland learned this the hard way twice in two thousand and one after a smallish campaign irish voters rejected expanding the bloc east island
5:07 pm
effectively put a spoke in the e.u.'s wheels when it was keen to invite nations like romania and bulgaria into the club so the e.u. irish government invested in a big yes campaign and a year later the vote was rerun. the majority of votes against a proposal. that irish decision on the use defacto constitution the lisbon treaty suffered the same fate majority in favor of the proposal. i see deer sold as a sign of confidence by the irish people and european union as a sign of their desire to be all hearted members of european union. before the break that shambles it was the greek debt crisis keeping e.u.
5:08 pm
officials are put night. in twenty fifteen the new greek prime minister staged a referendum in which greek citizens overwhelmingly rejected his austerity policies but brussels imposed them anyway those living in the birthplace of democracy well pleased with what they saw as an undemocratic process. and this one may not be related to the e.u. but it is relate. britain in twenty twelve voters in the city of manchester rejected having elected mayor but a couple of years later david cameron's westminster government imposed them on the region anyway late last year the e.u.'s top court ruled that the u.k. can unilaterally stop gregg's it stressing that the twenty sixteen referendum here wasn't legally binding so technically in terms of the law the u.k.
5:09 pm
government is free to do whatever it chooses be it plowing ahead with leaving or nothing into river shore stopping brags it would be a failure to deliver on the will of the people but after two and a half years of political turmoil here in the u.k. public opinion has shifted the latest polls now show that some fifty six percent of u.k. voters would say no to bragg's it and given the circumstances there are now plenty of politicians to break the bread as it promises and sell it as the noble thing to do well as calls for that second referendum continue to grow we'll be back in a in parliament in twenty four hours to present a revised version of her bracks plan to and peace. critics of the president with a new misconduct times this week they range from obstructing justice to holding the

5:12 pm
call it a bombshell why is anyone's guess the other recent bombshell came from the washington post which claim. in that trump tried to can see details of one of his meetings with putin according to current and former officials anonymous as is tradition the constraints that trump impose the part of a broader pattern by the presidents of shielding his communications with putin from public scrutiny and preventing even high ranking officials if he's only been destruction from fully knowing what he has told one of the united states main adversaries the bombshell kind of fizzles out in the twenty fourth paragraph where the washington post admits that trump allows most of his contact with putin to be monitored like his meeting in hamburg where then secretary of state rex tillerson this present trump of course dismisses it all as fake news attacks against him
