3:01 am
is tuesday morning. welcome to news from international first for you the british prime minister has agreed several important changes to deal with the president of the european commission to travel to strasbourg for a last ditch talks with the e.u. ahead of tuesday's crucial parliamentary vote on the agreement opposition leader jeremy corbin's called the negotiations a failure and is urging the house of commons to reject may's deal in a few hours time. with some possible outcomes of today's ballot. on tuesday night british politicians once again get to vote on some form of withdrawal agreement that the prime minister has negotiated with the european union so what happens next if the government wins the vote the prime minister will have had a lucky escape the u.k. will be leaving the e.u. with a deal on march the twenty ninth but not scenario is looking increasingly unlikely is expected the politicians will reject terry's amazing beleaguered withdrawal agreement just like they did in january to the right two hundred into. the
3:02 am
nose to the last four hundred and thirty two. in that case they'll be more votes to decide what to do next on wednesday parliament would be whether it would approve leaving the e.u. without a deal that's not likely to be approved by politicians either pretty much the only thing there appears to be a majority for in parliament is the option of excluding no deal and the potential calamity it might entailed priority is to stop no deal that would be hugely chaotic because the preparation for the law nor do you under any circumstances so by midweek the u.k. is likely to have ruled out to reason may's deal and no deal as well and then politicians would face another vote on whether to extend article fifty in other words delayed britain's departure from the e.u.
3:03 am
something that until recently to reason may had said wasn't an option with all the attention on march i'm clear that we would extend article fifteen that we will leave the on the twenty ninth of march any delay is a delay it doesn't address the issue it doesn't resolve the issue to reason may's said that that would be a short and necessary delay just to keep talks going with the e.u. on a potential deal but critics say it would just put off a. cliff edge brags that by another month will say think it would be highly dangerous for our country to go cap in hand to the european union the eleventh and beg for an extension it is not an answer to the situation we face. the term people will do you really be moved by all of this would leave the field open and he brags that politicians to advance their parliamentary maneuvers to thwart britain's departure from here at one thing. is going to be
3:04 am
a busy week for politicians international relations professor going to blow things the europeans won't accept a delay to break through without good reason. the prime minister loses the vote by say fifty votes this might allow her to continue to push for a third meaningful vote on a slightly altered deal just before d.-day but you know this is hopeful thinking by the prime minister's office i think there's zero teams are going to agree to it and they have to agree to it we can't do it unilaterally unless there is some substantive reason to do so a general election a new referendum but it can't simply be for theresa may to continue to kick the can down the line week on week day on day. break. but as well as national assembly has approved a state of emergency declared by opposition leader and self declared interim

president he says it's necessary before he can request international aid for the country it comes as the country struggling through an ongoing power blackout and humanitarian crises president duros says the power cuts of the result of cyber attacks by the united states i think that his government's working to solve the issue he claims to set a target record trying to damage one hundred electric dam on monday investigation into that is underway meanwhile says the situation needs to be addressed immediately. this catastrophe needs to be addressed immediately no we cannot turn our heads elsewhere no we cannot abandon our people and you are in the states you have the right to protest you have the right to demand you have the right to raise your voice you have the right to protest for your relatives you have the right to go out to the streets and demand our rights it's not true that there is normality in the streets in venezuela there is not. this is a lot of psychological pressure on the venezuelan people to be dealing with the
3:06 am
humanitarian crisis and now the crisis with the electrical grid think the man on top of that to have the assembly declare a national emergency this is really designed to create more chaos and more fear and more division within the venezuelan people their plan of the opposition is to find any way that it can to bring things to a head i think the military remains pretty much consistently on the side of euro and so this is another attempt to push the military back to and to deep in the crisis. from the committee of international solidarity but if the united states is exploiting the humanitarian crisis for atonement. in samples. we think the concept of the humanitarian crisis is the fundamental argument used by us imperialism around the world wherever they develop the plants of intervention and into theorems to overthrow the national government and violate sovereign to solve
3:07 am
determination and independence in order to take control over the strategic resources of countries and we think that this part of the plan for the we cannot uphold the concept of humanitarian aid which has been specifically defined by the us in the country like the missouri we're seeing the crisis of the capitalist system which many of the countries in the world also face and based on this argument of the humanitarian crisis other countries also. to legitimise that once the intervention you could direct in direct. well in another development the u.s. is to withdraw all remaining personnel from its embassy in venezuela u.s. secretary of state my pump blames the country's allies for the situation saying that by supporting the doro russia was ignoring the will of the venezuelan people he also blamed russian media for shifting attention from venezuela's humanitarian crisis. russia has also used its state sponsored just information organs like russia today and sputnik to divert attention from the humanitarian disaster of the
3:08 am
material regime they most of the means to media in the united states has fallen in line with this we're seeing a propaganda campaign in general i would say the us media has gone along with a very one sided story about what's happening in venezuela almost never talking to people who support the administration. there's been a steep rise in knife crime in britain and according to official figures last year thirty five percent of all crime involving a knife or shop instrument happened in london prompted a leading supermarket chain to stop the sale of single kitchen knives his auntie's honest to see a truckin. knife crime has become a major source of concern in the u.k. even described as an epidemic these days since the beginning of the year forty one stabbings have been reported fetal with both adults and teens among the victims and attackers a huge debate on how to tackle the problem has been pushed to the forefront the u.k.
3:09 am
home secretary has been holding emergency meetings with chief police officers last week to find a way forward as the surge in knife attacks gets dubbed a national emergency meanwhile this british supermarket chain seems to be adding its two cents to address the problem they have announced they won't be selling single night any more by the end of april when no single knives are the most common knife products to be stolen and that is why we have chosen to remove these items from our stores the office has welcomes the move we'll find out if locals think it can actually make any difference it's a very good idea because they're not going to spend fifty pounds to buy ten and i think the problem is that it's fine because they've charge of this you stop selling to under a chain that doesn't work take a stop so they know. you're in there people who are older he might need a knife perhaps it is a good idea to an offer to solve the problem are not for selling one michael selling a packet in ice that they can make a difference whether you say they're going to for more money so. a lot of these
3:10 am
guys get knives from their homes so it's not that they go by the they they can readily access and that's the source in their homes we also caught up with a former metropolitan police officer for a professional take on the knife crime situation but i think it's. still very like a day when the problem as a whole. will be going to do with here is a very very stringent legislature so that the punishments and the deterrents for very noisy circumstances are extremely horn. this sort of thing is a step in the right direction but it's a very small step. and it's a very long journey we've got to go on so we've got to look for government and we've got to look to our legislators to give us the tools to deal with this but these tools need to be very very powerful ones because we cannot continue down this road for about. what is a call a cultural things like in places nation to address that you've got to go. right
3:11 am
through you know sort of forming on forcing social trying to use and that's going to take a long tolling and i think you know you need to look at government changes in social services the choice of fact that but we have to do something in this also to you know we get a lot of sticking plaster on your lawyer and then sticking plaster again needs to be a crease in the amount of first officer as we do in the freedom of movement place or has to exist. but we're also you know we have to put the policeman in the perpetrators more and so this guy or the terrorists. will perhaps stop these youngsters from carrying these noisy carrying out these all these tanks is a very very stringent one indeed we've almost got to go back to it but the victorian actually shoots at this because you know they deal with these things at various storms of one war or the other and they did it with you know with almost six reenlisted slices. but because this is an extreme problem i think that's the kind of extreme cure that you know we're looking for. in the us critics are raising the

pressure over remarks by democratic party representatives about jewish influence on american politics many branded her anti semitic for the comments but she later apologized but leading republican list cheney warns that a subsequent democrat backed resolution condemning all bigotry isn't enough to counter it. the leadership is they are protecting her you know this isn't just being silent they are protecting her by failing to put a resolution on the floor that names her and that strip search for committee assignment instead they put a resolution on the floor which she then went out and said this is a tremendous victory for me. congress had the opportunity to denounce anti-semitism a very specific very odious problem and democrats decided to dodge that opportunity unapologetically dressing up a resolution as anti hate and insulating the person it was meant to discourage last thursday's resolution condemned all forms of hate and intolerance including anti-semitism and discrimination against muslims it was backed by
3:13 am
a large majority including all democrats so the move came after she questioned the power of the israeli lobby wielding over u.s. politicians. why is it ok for people to push religion is too far in country why is it ok for me to talk about the influence of the n.r.a. any fossil fuel industries or not talk about of powerful lobbying group that has influence in policy and we discussed it here r t where we had a disagreement over whether criticizing the israeli government is tantamount to an attack on all jewish people. ilan omar has camouflaged anti-semitism in the united states and has turned it in to a to a camouflaged issue of criticism of israel this is not about criticism of israel there is no overlap between being anti-semitic and israel and one can be. israel and reason really government policies certain policies without being anti-semitic in fact many jews both in israel and abroad
3:14 am
are against the policies of the current israeli government even though they consider themselves proud jews they are proud of their jewish heritage and they resent any such comment this is only about anti-semitism in the united states this is not about israel per se and i think that what has happened here there has been a conflation of the issue in which mrs omar who knows exactly what she's doing when you call israel a racist bigoted or apartheid state as she has done as well as some of her some of her colleagues in the in the democratic party you are you are making an anti-semitic statement if you want to make a legitimate critic criticism of israel then make it in context israel used to enjoy bipartisan support on capitol hill and in washington in the country in
3:15 am
general but under benjamin netanyahu has publicly supported the republicans over the democrats and thereby contributed to the democrats now. coming out in force against israel the challenge of the democratic party is will they stand up to miss omar and to mr from michigan and to ms cortez from new york who are working as a triangular power in order to to to create unfair and biased and even at times anti semitic diatribe against israel and the jews in the united states will the democratic party stand up to them or will they collapse as they have in this resolution that essentially makes mr omar the victim as opposed to the perpetrator of the dentist a medic trope the power for israel's friends be the jews or of other denominations on capitol hill and in american politics is not only undeniable so when it fits
3:16 am
these really purpose it indicates to people in washington on that it behooves them not to do israel's bidding and when he does not fit their it's purpose. all of a sudden fears such perceptions but this is of course powerful because. there's outrage in russia after death woman had her two children abruptly taken off and put into care she's accused by tenants in her shared apartment of being an alcoholic who's incapable of taking care of her children she denies that and claims her neighbors simply want to seize control of the whole apartment. there's alan white for. her room in a shared apartment raided by custody officials children gone that's how a single mother of two learned that her kids were taken away from her less has lived her life with the hearing impairment and it is so bad that without

3:18 am
simply impossible activists say alyssa went through complete examinations with an archaeologist and they say car tryst and they determined she was stable and didn't have a drinking problem the custody service seems to brush off all of the above the law and now here are these children already turned into to lot c. in an online database for those seeking to adopt and as if taking the children away from the mother wasn't bad enough now they've been taken away from each other they've been placed in two different children homes not you need it seems as if nobody had thought about what's best for the children when they decided to separate the siblings i listen as mother has submitted an application to force to her grandchildren and has started renovating her flat to get it up to standards. like the way. ok the law. and while the dispute has already been taken to court it doesn't really see the urgency.

female genital mutilation is still carried out in a number of religious and traditional cultures usually to control girl sexuality and as a precondition for marriage the practice is painful and it does significant harm to the victim it's before mostly on young girls and it's been illegal in the u.k. for decades it's often done without the victim's consent as well so the girls can
