5:02 pm
the good for the u.k. and. the u.k. will leave you without you do. something else is a greet the onus is now on every one of us in this house to find. this number is quite amazing a margin of just four votes shows us exactly how divided the house of commons is on how to move forward with threats it indeed a lot of analysts were suggesting that the idea of a new deal breck's it would in fact be rejected but more votes is really really a slim slim margin which you know obviously if more people had changed their minds the u.k. would essentially be saying ok let's go ahead and do this without any kind of agreement with the european union a very significant result of there and indeed three hundred twelve have rejected
5:03 pm
the idea of the u.k. leaving the european union without a deal and three hundred eight supported of the possibility now to be clear this comes after on tuesday night theresa means deal was rejected for a second time by the house of commons with two hundred forty two people supporting her deal and three hundred ninety one rejecting it for a second time in a row by a very significant margin in that case of one hundred forty nine votes and what we're expecting to happen tomorrow now is a vote on the possibility of extending the deadline of breck's it actually coming to fruition on march twenty ninth the deadline that theresa may had said on and on and on and on again that she would be against extending by any means yet here we are tomorrow that's another possibility being discussed there the ques. is
5:04 pm
it would the european union agree to any kind of extension given they have said the deal that they had agreed with me was the best one possible that negotiating time is over earlier today the chief e.u. negotiator michel barnier had indicated that. still the chances of the u.k. leaving without a deal are higher than ever because keep in mind that despite now the house of commons rejecting the possibility of leaving the european union without an agreement doesn't mean that won't happen because if there is no agreement in the next just two weeks before the deadline unless an extension takes place they will still have to leave without a deal by war very complicated stuff very tricky still a lot to be decided in the days to come and indeed just like i said sixteen days right now to go before the deadline. galanos david coburn who's brigs it m.e.p. for scotland very good evening to you david it was an installing evening in the
5:05 pm
house of commons for you for having lost count i think there are three votes all pretty much adding up to the same thing that the m.p.'s do not want there to be no deal briggs what do you make of proceedings. well and a kiss to kill you suppose really it i mean the government have made the biggest mess in history the prime ministers utterly incompetent she should never have the job she got there by accident and she just led from one catastrophe to the next she lied to the public when she stood for office she said she was going to give them breck's it she tried to do everything to prevent it so now we're in the mess we're in it isn't it's not it could have easily gone through rex it. could've agreed to to leave on the world trade organization terms it would have been a problem will now do the trade or road trade organization terms didn't wasn't far from winning tonight it wasn't i think forty three votes in one of them and two for
5:06 pm
votes in another so not not not very good for the prime minister i think the house of commons do not like her deal at all it's worse than being in the european union and that's what she's trying to do she's trying to make it look so bad that will continue on in the european union but that's not going to happen and if we end up having to stay beyond a certain period we have to take part in the european elections then what you're going to see is seventy three nigel farrar she is returned to the european parliament it will make the government of of the european union impossible you'll find it will make life excuse me difficult but over the probably want to throw it out i should think is it inevitable now that in the vote taking place thursday. will vote for an extension of article fifty that this deadline is going to be pushed back. yes i mean the they made me vote for with the european union are
5:07 pm
going to give it to them as other matter i think that the european union no terrified of the prospect of either said seventy three knowledge of iraq is coming to the european parliament after the next european elections so i think it would be very reluctant to extend the period we're there we. three months or two months or whatever it is before they have a deadline for the european elections so i think they're getting more and more terrified i can see the fear and give doubts are raised at the prospect of more nigel farage is going there i can also see barney ottilie despondently he can't force through his deal the house of commons simply where it is this playing into the hands of the remainder is you know no deal has been agreed on the if the votes getting the deadlines getting pushed back and back and back is sent essentially what you've got is no breaks it. more and more people are becoming more and more
5:08 pm
angry about this people who are more angry about the european union and more and more people who previously we rooted for remain trapped no supporting leave i think people do not like the way that britain has been treated by the european union and the arguments it is taking away our liberty and our freedom to do as we please is absolutely. the british probably going to. simply won't wear it and i think you'll find he was there had another result. even more people wanted to leave so. i don't think they're going to go for that i think they realize they probably lose but they're trying to just keep the whole thing bubbling along as long as possible i hope everybody forgets about it well we're not going to forget about it and we're just going to make the whole the systems impossible to the point where they want to get rid of and you mentioned about the situation of tourism a which could complicate things even further because she was compelling ordering as
5:09 pm
a three line whip on party members to vote the way that that she wanted this evening and many of them defied including government ministers i mean it's just a right chaos now isn't it in the conservative party. well i think it's the end of some of the big parties they have the end of the conservative party it's breaking out i think the labor party even in the state the tory party every moment seems to be able to. win elections. to win the election you know there was one so they are doing very poorly i think it's time for new parties to come on the blogs the. new breaks in a party. a hundred thousand people within a couple of days one hundred fifty to two hundred thousand people have joined the party and that's it in a week or so so you know the people want a new party a new way of doing things and i think the old parties are just worn out and the old
5:10 pm
joke with the conservative party is so infiltrated by you who are fanatics are people who just want a nice cushy job in the house of commons and then moving on to the european union and for a nice retirement job and that's why they want to continue our membership in the e.u. but people see that now i think the mask is beginning to slip people see that the house of commons is not giving people what they want and they want a change of the people who are in it and i think that was going to happen lou conservative associations are going to stop picking off the remaining members of parliament and i think you'll also see that. things like our party are going to come along and say these people remain as to the of them and. enormous number of people voting for people who are for brakes it would give them what they voted for david pleasure to speak to appreciate your time i guess david
5:11 pm
coburn president me pay for scotland. can. break tonality. on to other news now the cia was spying last month's attack on a north korean embassy in the grid according to spanish media in the investigation taking an unexpected twist local journalist martin roberts explains. in a remarkable report today spain's newspaper of record el paice suggested that the u.s. central intelligence agency may have been behind a recent attack on the north korean embassy here in madrid which you can see behind me now two things about this attack a particularly significant the first one is the timing because the attack happened on the twenty second of february or just days before the recent nuclear summit
5:12 pm
between the united states and north korea in hanoi which as we all know ended inclusively the second significant factor here is that the korean delegation to hanoi was headed by none other than kim here choice who is the currently a creditor accredited ambassador here now el peise say that police investigators and also investigators from the security services have managed to identify at least two of the ten presumed assailants and say that they have connections to the cia they are also that the cia have denied responsibility but they are that those denials were quote not very convincing the police are investigating. this attack they say. these ten assailants. forcibly entered the embassy but they tied up garecht beat and interrogated staff before one of them managed to escape from a second floor window and cry for help a neighbor called the police
5:13 pm
a masterpiece or frustrated the attack however the salience managed to get away in embassy cars taking with them important documents and computer material now if these attacks are confirmed they're currently under investigation by the high court . but the responsibility of the cia is confirmed and lucky to have devastating implications for diplomatic relationships between the two countries are not least because of international conventions covering the inviolability of diplomatically gay sions. we have us the north korean embassy and the spanish interior ministry for reaction to that news with the latter already replying that it will not comment on an ongoing investigation. to state mine pompei as a q several nations including russia of selling their energy products in order to attack at liberty and freedom and that wasn't the only important point made during his speech to an annual energy conference in houston texas are these reports. the
5:14 pm
us is out of the closet finally an official confirmation that it weaponized oil and gas in its foreign policy doctrine we need to continue to build our energy security in the ways of describing we need to roll up our sleeves and compete by facilitating investment all across the world and encouraging partners to buy from us and by punishing bad actors but hold up what's with that part about bad actors well don't you forget america is exceptional it's like no other country in the world really so when they do it it is a canny tactic but when somebody else does it's a felony some nations are using their energy or malign amps and not to promote prosperity in the way we do here in the west. they don't have the values of freedom and liberty of the rule of law that we do and they're using their energy to destroy ours it's all the usual suspect in this being go of baddies russia is naturally there as it stands accused of plotting to turn poor old europe into
5:15 pm
a bunch of gas junkies by building a pipeline we don't want our european allies booked on russian gas to the north as you to project none of the countries implicated in the project see a problem with it if we received russian gas during the cold will not only in the d.d.r. where i live but also in west germany but i don't see why the times and situation today should be so much more us now we can no longer say that russia remains a partner but uncle sam knows best russia also apparently invaded ukraine to pillage its energy stock and we all know the story in russia that invaded ukraine to gain access to oil and gas reserves so let me get this straight russia world's number one in proven gas reserves with over fifty thousand billion cubic meters to show for it wanted some of ukraine's three hundred billion and when it comes to the black gold the mighty energy empires of denmark and it's really
5:16 pm
more oil rich than ukraine could it be that someone spends so much time in iraq that now sees the fingerprints of its own plays everywhere now of syrian leader bashar assad also goes on pay as naughty list well this time the syrian president is guilty of wanting to explore some of syrian oil reserves which are well in syria and it is cuba of course taking advantage of venezuela by enjoying its oil not the u.s. that outright sounds inaccessible to president maduro and remember us is special in every way so when they earn a buck in energy trade that's a force for good don't mix it up but through this here's my point. we're not just exporting american energy we're exporting our commercial value system to our friends and to our partners so trumps well marketed america first policy may need
5:17 pm
a little clarification it's not about america solving its problems by itself it's about america trying to solve its problems at everyone else's expense pompei out seems to believe that whatever the u.s. does is right and moral and whatever russia china or iran do is this is there really wrong and immoral but you have to remember that the foreign policy team that trumpets put together this is really an amazingly inept team and they are very bad at what they're doing no one is persuaded by its arguments russia's customers enter into the relationship voluntarily no one is corrupting anybody as they supposedly free trade free market the europeans are appalled by decision to pull out of the nuclear accord with iran they are determined to go ahead with the nord stream to pipeline which the u.s. opposes the no reason not to pipe in or gas from nearby russia rather than shipping
5:18 pm
it from the united states you know thousands of miles away it makes no sense at all unless you're a u.s. gas company. terrorist group islamic state has penetrated the refugee camp in greece where it's persecuting religious minorities that's the finding of a soon to be released documentary. it's a process to sell any that's designed for about. thousand people but realistically holds around ten thousand. the conditions of the camp were pretty bad the rest of shouldest showed a soto's of videos of riots happening all the time especially when it's really just been delivered. to me even nothing. like the
5:19 pm
know your. license i hear that. they are here. or anything like you know they can steal hundred bucks if you look. at the model. on the market they are in the minority that i've never seen a. car bomb that's all gummed up at that level up i thought but going on. top of this many times to put i cannot trust to protect ourselves we get to go. the film itself will be released in may we spoke to his producer about how they ended up telling the story. you know the main reason we chose more is because there
5:20 pm
were reports of really quite disastrous things happening there but we never ever expected to find out what we really found out this place was was completely sort of uncontrollable there were there were tents scattered all through the mountainsides there was no security there there was almost no control whatsoever and one of the residents actually told us that they were terrified of being attacked one man told us on camera that the reason he fled to the middle east was to escape from radical islam when they arrived in europe within days they were experiencing the same thing which was which was really really shocking is because an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness when you're there you know as a filmmaker. director george and laura and i have spent so much time in different different environments different conditions but this was definitely one of the most difficult and also scary this is you know interpol only recently published published a report saying that there's now a real way terror threat coming to europe from returning to hardy's residents told us that the reason isis is operating now because of being defeated in their own
5:21 pm
countries in the east and other coming here and it all fits into the narrative in football and to everybody else so it's. it's quite depressing overall but it was worth it to bring this truth. of the police nor the government have responded to a request sent by the documentary makers on the situation in the camp we've sent our own request as well to the police. french president of on your micron's vision of a reformed european union which he made last week has been met with the derision by some of the blocs key players chancellor on the head of germany's biggest party and elemental successor kristie democrats are among those rejecting his ideas peter all of it takes a look at what they took exception to. if french president or manual mccrone was hoping that fellow e.u. leaders would support his new vision for the future of europe his european renascence as he called it well he may be a little disappointed austrian chancellor said busty and could says the latest to
5:22 pm
criticize micron's plan saying it's utopian and comes with too many rules as it to me i believe that many of the suggestions are utopian. plead for europe with as few rules as possible. so what is my crime put forward that could doesn't like well he's proposed creating a whole load of new e.u. agencies including one that would police campaign financing in elections in member states he also wants to see more and more centralized powers for a shingle and border force and has even a plan there for an e.u. minimum wage mark or once in an agency for democracy that's ridiculous i mean we have democracy you should reform the e.u. but he doesn't really want to reform the because it's an intra governmental e.q. built on french design i mean france basically has the best of limits there and the e.u. is missing true parliament and the who is missing. french nuclear power and the french
5:23 pm
seat in the in the security council so for the you to reform we have to talk about everything it's not just the austrian chancellor that is unhappy about this though here in germany the woman widely tipped to take over from angola merkel is chancellor also isn't very king european central isn't european status in the community rising debt the european eyes ation of social systems and the minimum wage would be the wrong approach c.d.u. leader and a good outcome kalam did agree with president macro when it came to security but on not a lot else and members of a christian democratic union party are also critical of the plan i'm quite amazed that on. good compact current of the new cd you little skeptical because normally german leaders always followed the french leaders of germany thought that would be part of the german reason of state but apparently it's not anymore than you can see in this the turmoil and the the change in europe the pressure by the people and
5:24 pm
democratic change her has probably brought the party leader to present position herself slightly more skeptical of new french plans and france is feeling and this e.u. in some ways is feeling the timing of the release of my crohn's plan hasn't helped the french president either it's come out just before european parliamentary elections in which it's expected euro skeptic parties will make pretty decent gains and while he hasn't got the support of key allies within the european union dream of a new european renascence may well remain just a dream peter all of r.t. berlin. c.n.n. chief jeff zucker has slammed fox news as being a propaganda outlet expressed support for the us democratic party's decision to exclude fox from hosting its twenty twenty primary debates. they chose to work at fox and they don't get to hide behind the fact that they're excellent journalists
5:25 pm
so anchors the fact is they work at a place that has done tremendous damage to this country the idea is that of course whoever is in power and whoever i guess whatever platform is more sympathetic that will be state run or what i about referred to as perhaps state sympathetic of fox and c.n.n. actually been at each other's throats for quite some time here's a look back at their spat. more fake news from c.n.n. this time it is spewing from the lips of the clinton news network president his name is jeff zucker it is really state run t.v. it is a pure propaganda machine sucker is a partisan democrat you cannot understand that from here without understanding. the human the world a very distorted perverted view of our country every single day we get the echo chamber effect starting to sell the president's message it's
5:26 pm
a lot our news anchors don't consult donald trump when something becomes a pattern you don't tell the truth on a daily basis that's a problem at least i'm not responsible for a quarter of a billion dollar lawsuit by smearing a minor they want to press the default they're in control obsessive coverage it's impossible to watch with this is not personal this is just the truth. big man read the list of all the things that you said and do it again and show that you mean it all that's fair and balanced these are the facts as journalists we have to give you the facts we should put c.n.n. six feet you see right there under brown scary thought. we were inject c n n's worldview completely. out folks can do no room to miss him b. c. . writes and i don't think either one of those is right. propaganda
5:27 pm
means something to somebody else is saying that you don't agree with their ways symbiont and the object of your truth if they don't like it calls you propaganda it is impossible for a human being to look at any particular story and not have any as you would say by if you don't know the history of something if you don't know if you have no basis and with that basis. comes a particular slant perspective there was no such thing as objectivity because objectivity means everybody has to agree on it then the person who doing it was a i think i am objective and the person who does not particularly like the flavor or the subject of the story didn't say that only are you not objective but is it propaganda which brings us right back to the beginning. protests erupted overnight in the venezuelan capital caracas where supporters of the country's opposition leader clashed with police.
5:28 pm
to arrest began after people gathered in a western district of the city is this video here shows stones were thrown at the police people were urged on to the streets by the country's self-proclaimed president won by i don't. think it was going to be i know it sounds harsh in venezuela it is bleeding today that is suffering to say that we are doing well i know that sounds tough but it is so obvious that we aren't saying it because of the country situation because we know the situation in the country is critical we know what is critical and have condemned it and we have a proposal to improve it when we say that it is because we are united when we say it it is because we are going all out to achieve in his way. we will not tremble when we make those decisions. and as for the actual president nicolas maduro says the majority of the country is calm with electrical power having being restored following massive nationwide outages here alleges that u.s.
5:29 pm
hackers were behind the blackout as appeal for help defending against future interference. betty feet can't get full she would have to i want you to know that i have appointed a presidential special investigations commission to look into the cyber attack and i've asked for the participation of international specialists i will ask for the support of the united nations and in addition i will also ask for the already active support of russia china iran and cuba countries with a lot of experience defending against cyberattacks we already have the support of these countries if the us government was concerned about the humanitarian situation inside it as well and then they should begin the process of lifting sanctions twenty million dollars in aid does not in any way reflect the value of what could be lost by the village well in government every day the very notion that the charter ministration will be concerned about the humanity of people in venezuela is laughable there has been an attempt by the administration to manufacture a crisis
5:30 pm
a crisis they did not exist in this country there was an election that people voted and i missed it and with the door was. scheduled to assume his office of the of the constitution but then we had this diversion by the national assembly that is in contempt and now we have this manufactured crisis at this point all of the respectability and legitimacy stairs were built while in government a government recognized by the vast majority of the states on this planet. watching our tail that that with updates for you in half an hour.
