9:02 pm
i think that i have put out who. are you know what i'm doing with. the country and up here in this old me to you frankly i know a little culture to the point of hundred years from now we're going to resolve these questions with this deal would reject this deal because of the obama ticket to. be on a civil rights two hundred until you know you still the left four hundred and thirty two children never used to be. having it is clear that the house does not support this deal. they would have resigned and the country would be able to choose to come look at things beyond.
9:03 pm
to the right one hundred fifty i understood the letter three hundred twenty five countries at this house has expressed its confidence in the governor i am. i believe they're. probably aware. i think. in the wake of those fights the publication of the leaks government document on thursday added to the control the c. of the brac says the paper explores the possibility of holding a second referendum and estimates that the whole process would take up to 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 to reason why has remained adamant that she will deliver on bracks is well down the street confirmed that the paper is genuine it tonight the government has been actively planning for a second vote it says the paper is purely for as stressed of peppa says and has
9:04 pm
reiterated that the p.m.'s position that breton 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 make clear in our conference motion which was as a reminder to you not of us they 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 they would have a whole show draw all parts of the european legislation they had to go up or so they could quite have to 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 we begin to make that process and that's partly because the conservative party is very divided to want to do but it's also true the opposition is very divided so we have all these and they cut across parties and they cut across the country to. a recent poll has found that if a second referendum were to be held
9:05 pm
a majority of voters would now choose to remain in the e.u. it shows that support for remain is at its highest level since the twenty sixteen votes and as party boyko explains every run 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 if some politicians get their way whether it should happen at all to 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 a call for deception but most of those people that promise to help you know why we bothering to leave and we leave we're still subject to all the rules over on the continent of these slighted politicians will be hoping that perhaps the imperfect
9:06 pm
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 fire. really 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 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.
9:07 pm
the majority of votes against the proposal. the irish decision on the e.u.'s defacto constitution the lisbon treaty suffered the same fate majority in favor of the proposal. i see the assault as a sign of confidence by the irish people and european union as a sign of their desire to be all hard members of european union. before the break that shambles it was the greek debt crisis keeping e.u. officials are quite 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.
9:08 pm
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 mayor 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 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 reverse 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 opinion has shifted the latest polls now show that some fifty six percent of
9:09 pm
u.k. voters would say no to bragg's it and given the circumstances there are now leonti of politicians to break the bread as it promised and sell it as the noble thing to do well those calls for that second referendum continue to grow to reason they will be back in parliament on monday to present a revised version to m.p.'s. critics of donald trump it's the president of the new misconduct claims this week they range from obstructing justice to holding the u.s. hostage over this controversial plan for a five billion dollars wall to wall 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
9:10 pm
this week it's this 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 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 enforcement officials anonymous of course as this tradition claimed 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 seen the documents he's our answer would put any lawyer to shame i don't think that we've said that we haven't remember but i will say that i'm very confident that your colleagues said on c.n.n.
9:11 pm

9:12 pm
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 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 where then secretary of state rex tillerson was present trump of course this misses it all is fake news attacks against him defamation never work for russia you know that is are better than anybody i've ever 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 hope it's just . but the democrats being democrats now want to raise hell over this they want the interpreter from the helsinki meeting between trump and putin to
9:13 pm
spill the beans they hope anything to get a 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 theirs at this point the trump seems particularly concerned you can't 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 a sixty thousand protesters rallied in the capital at ten lest the sputnik news agency twenty five police officers were injured.
