a year that includes seven months to lay the legal ground work and the fed the three months at least the testing that question the leak came as a surprise to many as to reason why has remained adamant that she will to live on bread while donning streets can fend the paper is genuine it's a night. government has been actively planning for a second vase it says the paper is purely for illustrated purposes and has reiterated the p.m.'s position that britain will leave the meanwhile jeremy corbyn has set out the conditions under which he's would support a second vote all the options are on the table including the public vote option which we make clear in our conference motion which was i have to remind you unanimously agreed by our conference last september 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 had to go up or so
7:05 pm
they could quite happily live with them so they would come out of the traps of to go further if they want to and so this is what we're for against it it took three years to even begin to make that process and that's partly because the conservative party is very divided on what to do but it's also true the opposition is very divided so we have all these divisions and they council cross parties and they cut across the country too. a recent poll has found that if the second referendum were to be held the majority of voters would now choose to remain in the e.u. it shows that support for remaining set its highest level since the twenty sixteen breck's if those. boyko explains a rerun of a referendum wouldn't be without precedent. the people may have voted but the british parliament is in political turmoil over what the u.k.'s departure from the e.u. should look like and if some politicians get their way whether it should happen at all to this issue but to the elected what. are the british
7:06 pm
public to get back a. week this is a call for deception but most of those people that promise to help you know why we bothering to leave and. 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 what's 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
7:07 pm
a smallish campaign irish voters rejected expanding the bloc east island 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. a majority of votes against the proposal. of the irish decision on the e.u.'s defacto constitution the lisbon treaty suffered the same fate majority in favor of the proposal at the price of years old 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.
7:08 pm
before the break that shambles it was the greek debt crisis keeping e.u. officials are put night. in twenty fifteen the new greek prime minister staged a referendum in which greek citizens overwhelmingly rejected the e.u.'s 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 related to britain in twenty twelve voters in the city of manchester rejected having elected mares but a couple of years later david cameron's westminster government imposed them on the region anyway late last year the e.u. is top court ruled that the u.k. can unilaterally stop gregg's it stressing that the twenty sixteen referendum here
7:09 pm
wasn't legally binding so technically in terms of the law the u.k. government is free to do whatever it chooses be it plowing ahead with leaving or nothing into river shore stopping gregg's 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. has shifted the latest polls now show that some fifty six percent of u.k. voters would fain know ted bragged it and given me third hand stances there are now lente of politicians he can break the bread with a promise and sell it as the noble thing to do while those calls for that second referendum continue to grow to reason may we back in parliament twenty four hours to present a revised version of her bracks it planned to m.p.'s. critics of donald trump hit the president with
7:10 pm
a barrage of new misconduct claims this week they ranged from obstructing justice told in the u.s. hostage of his controversial plan for a five billion dollar border war and his opponents there's only one solution. from dirty filthy dossiers to sexual misconduct allegations illicit business deals on and on you name it chances are trump was accused of it weekly this week it's the seat president donald trump directed his longtime attorney michael cohen to lie to congress according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter and even as trump told the public he had no business deals with russia the sources said trump and his children if frank and donald trump jr received regular detailed updates about the real estate development from cohen whom they put in charge of the project specifically to alleged law
7:11 pm
enforcement officials anonymous of course as is tradition claim to have seen documents regarding the proposed construction of a trump tower in moscow markedly one of the original authors couldn't clearly state whether he is even soon the documents his arm would put any law. to shame i don't think we've said that we haven't. but i will say that i'm very confident that your colleague said on c.n.n. this morning that you were briefed on these documents we say that we we've seen documents we've been briefed on documents we're very confident in our report you can imagine how embarrassing it must have been for buzz feed when robert mueller by no means a fan of trump and the guy investigating the us president came out and dismissed these reports buzz feed's description of specific statements and characterization
7:12 pm
of documents and testimony and not accurate yet still the pundits call it a bombshell why is anyone's guess the other recent bombshell came from the washington post which claimed that trump tried to see details of one of his meetings with putin according to current and former officials anonymous as is tradition the constraints that pose 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 ministration from fully knowing what he has told one of the united states marine adversaries the bombshell kind 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 the present trump of
7:13 pm
course dismisses it all as fake news attacks against him defamation i never work for russia you know that is. never worked for russia not only did i never work for russia i think it's a disgrace that you even ask that question because it's all big fat hoax it's just . but the democrat. it's being democrats now want to raise hell over this they want the interpreter from the helsinki meeting between trump and putin to spill the beans they hope anything to get at trump if i had a choice i'd rather not do that with the with the interpreters but we may have no choice we'll have to see down down the road what happens but we want to get to the truth impeachment they cry impeachment impeachment impeachment almost thirty ish of the at this point to trump seems particularly concerned
7:14 pm
you can. impeach somebody that's doing a great job that's the way i view it. seven people have been arrested during clashes with police in greece and sixty thousand protesters rallied in the capital a journalist the sputnik news agency and twenty five police officers were injured. the greek authorities used crowd control equipment to this best protest as clashes broke out in the thin south side the parliament building this sunday against a deal between greece and this may be macedonia to rename the country and in ten
7:15 pm
allow it succession to may say the deal will see the country remains of the republic of north macedonia in order to try to end as a speaker of the name shared with the northern province of free however some greeks fillets in attempts to approach appropriate historical and cultural heritage and are strongly against it the agreements could be ratified on monday and would go to a vote later next week. for decades greece is forced basically over a neighbor macedonia's name because it happens border region is also called macedonia one of the country's official name safe. short for the former yugoslav republic of macedonia to stop the laying claim to the rich history of that name after a little street genius alexander the great still study to walk out of these around the world was born in macedonia without its blocking its neighbors nato and the leadership over the issue finally agreed it made the republic of north macedonia
7:16 pm
macedonia as parliament be amended its constitution to ratify the name change but greece's politics means it has yet to do to say. well that's now get reaction from me i need this kris on top let's form a great comeback they need us welcome to the program now the deal isn't certified yes but we've. already seen many violent confrontations in the greek capital how do you see the situation developing do you think it's going to get well. first of all as it were the sixty thousand sixty thousand people that is the number given by the police. seeing the videos of people who were there i would estimate them to be around five hundred to six hundred thousand or even more that's what the whole initial. reports are very angry about this agreement is that for the
7:17 pm
first time released in giving the name of macedonia. to a slavic country that belongs to the doors and they we cannot accept that and that's why we are reacting but the worst thing is that. night that states nato and they don't care very much about the agreement for say what they want to have scope join nato that's the whole that's the whole game and. had been brought seeing all these years any attempt. of spoke to join international patients except for the united nations that was the only way to find a solution but the solution is not acceptable to the people because it contains the
7:18 pm
name of macedonia if it's northwest at dawn what south boston don't like so i think that. fractious of today it was here was here by the police because they saw this enormous number of people that they were expecting thought to that extent. this will continue because. a resolution was adopted by the. demonstration which dissipates actions to be taken to the president of the republic to the to the parliament trying to convince the members of parliament not to vote for that it would have disastrous effects on. the justice system of. to go against those people who have committed treason according to the government to withdraw this agreement. from ok we talked about the level of
7:19 pm
opposition being same increase towards the deal how likely is it to be ratified on monday. no it's not going to be rectified on monday on monday it's going to be submitted to be discussed by the committee over external affairs and it should reach the argument by thursday or friday in order to have the whole take so from monday to thursday we will see great. by the tone of the people who are opposing. the improvement of our precious today we even had demonstrations outside the peace we had in munich a big demonstration to about one thousand people. started also there was a demonstration that nic proselyte these demonstrations abroad are continuing
7:20 pm
not if there were any in the united states or not well the russian foreign ministry is also commented on the dale saying that it appears to be against the will of the majority of people in macedonia as well so why is it being pushed i mean when it's unpopular in my country. because from what we understand this big push or reckless on the government to allow spoken to join nato. like to remind everybody that agreement that was done. by bush. or by truck. and border patrol ship that reunification of germany undertook condition that nato would not expand and we can see what happened after that both the countries of the warsaw pact that are not members of nato and continues to expand and this is something that nobody speaks of. one of the
