8:02 am
a humiliating defeat last week but there are already concerns that little or nothing has changed after a triple setback from the e.u. our london correspondent takes us through. plan b. looks an awful lot like plan a but in different packaging to reason may appears to be trying to tweak her original deal just enough to push it through parliament by getting support from the doubters on her own side from inside the conservative party and from the g.d.p. the democratic unionist party of northern ireland which is propping up juries amazed minority government and the prime minister has to think that if she secures changes to the thorny issue of the irish backstop then she'll be able to squeeze it through on the twenty ninth of january which is the next scheduled vote in parliament now one option floated over the weekend is that reason they could try to negotiate some sort of bilateral treaty between london and dublin which is an idea
8:03 am
that dublin has already rejected saying that any negotiations taking place here are going to be between london and brussels take a listen it is not something we would entertain it would not work the same many of the issues pertaining to ireland are related to. an agreed through the european union. is much stronger negotiating through the taskforce and in regards to this new plan which isn't so new a lot of politicians are saying that the reason why is flogging a dead horse here that dead set against it no matter what she does to it and of course a lot of people remember that after her deal failed spectacularly in parliament just under a week ago to resume a pledge to hold cross party talks and start listening to politicians on the other side of the aisle to see if she can get some sort of consensus on bragg's that going forward but that idea has crashed and burned also quite spectacularly just like her original deal she's failed in these talks with other opposition parties
8:04 am

8:08 am
documents and testimony are not accurate we're used to not hearing from mr miller after compromising bombshells explode but it's not like there is now some good new chemistry between the president and the special counsel or that the hunt for collusion evidence is over it's that the quality of this particular bus feed piece put robert miller in a position where he had to say something but when it comes to what it says in the report 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 so why would god trump haters smelling blood evidence from sources which the reporters don't name. sources. sources you can find this word all over the article eventually though we find
