one thing it doesn't want the u.k. to leave the e.u. without a deal the problem is there isn't a parliamentary majority on what to do next maybe this was two resumes planned all along breaks it down. and. the fate of bragg's it becomes more crowded as british lawmakers vote for a three month delay so it's back to brussels for two reason may to seek the news the mission. rockets have fired at the israeli city of tel aviv in the first case of an attack on the city since two thousand and fourteen we spoke with israeli cabinet member enough to leave bet it on the latest violence. we left gaza we want peace the moment they stop shooting missiles at my children's. home and
kindergarten is the moment there will be peace. moring into the skies a new crew are heading to the international space station after blowing off from the baikonur cosmodrome just hours ago. and the cia is behind the mysterious attack on the north korean embassy in spain holding two local radio. a very warm welcome to you you're watching r.t. international with me and carol great to have you with us now we start with the latest from london where british m.p.'s have voted to delay the u.k.'s departure from the you. or p n u d and this means that the british prime minister will have
to return to brussels and renegotiate the current march twenty ninth deadline my colleague neil harvey spoke to marty's unassisted churkin and peter all of us to get the reaction from both sides of the child. to. the payson house of commons could really agree with much they have agreed on something finally but not really much tangible it's just a delay as i understand it. well. you're absolutely correct with your interpretation of these events i mean they have said no to a bunch of different things throughout this very very hectic week in westminster and they have indeed finally agreed on something which is they're not ready to handle bracks it which has become extremely clear in these last couple of days if it wasn't clear before with the original bracks a deadline of march twenty ninth looming just fifteen days from this evening it was
clear that there is no consensus on what's going to happen it was a vote after vote rejected by m.p.'s in terms of how to move forward so the way things stand now is they have indeed supported the idea of pushing back article fifty delaying brax it despite if you remember throughout this whole very gruesome process british prime minister theresa may has been saying over and over and over again she wants to stay with the deadline we're leaving on march twenty ninth eccentric cetera that apparently for now is not happening because of this vote yes for one hundred twelve votes no two hundred two a majority of two hundred ten so it's a very clear majority that. that many m.p.'s want more time to figure out what's going on the problem there is now to recently has to go back to brussels that has there they have told her many times that we have given you the best deal possible
let's work with that that deal was rejected so what she's going to be able to it's seems likely that she's going to be able to secure an extension however what that extension is going to bring now is the big question because so many other options have been rejected. and taken off the table just this week alone m.p.'s have said no to her deal which was the best one possible according to may and her colleagues at within the european union or in brussels and they have also rejected the idea of leaving without a deal so where all of this is heading now who knows you know it's been said difficult difficult process it's really i guess at this point going to be up to what it is that they're going to pull out of their sleeves to try to bring this forward something. that's a little nasty relentless. european reaction i was going to be to all of a who's in berlin. the irony here is thick i believe the u.k.
says europe we don't want you and now we're left to go back all of a twist like with begging bowl and so you to e.u. officials please can we have more time how do you think you're going to react to this. well i can tell you exactly how the european commission have just reacted to this they put out a statement through a spokesperson in the last few moments saying the they have been watching the vote in london with great attention and they've pointed out that if the u.k. wants an extension of article fifty it has to be approved by all twenty seven remaining e.u. members now this statement says the. they're going to have to come up with a good reason for extension now there's a little bit of good cop bad cop going on here at the moment between the european commission and the european council in their various presidents the european commission president previously said it doesn't want to see a long extension certainly doesn't want to see the u.k.
have to take part in any kind of a you parliamentary elections which basically means he wants to see that extension lasting no longer than the end of may we have heard from donald to skip the european council president he said he would be an ally. to the united kingdom in trying to get men in the states trying to get those leaders to side with an extension however he said if he's to do that he's going to need a good reason to sell it to the twenty seven during my consultations ahead of the european council i will appeal to the e.u. twenty seven to be open to a long extension if the u.k. finds it necessary to rethink its brags its strategy and build consensus around it well if we look at statements from other e.u. leaders we've heard from emanuel mark on the french president saying that he would essentially support a extension of article fifty however he was very clear to say that this wouldn't be a time for any negotiations this would be essentially a time for the u.k.
to decide if it wants the deal that the e.u. has already agreed with to resume a that deal of course it's already been voted down twice and may well go to parliament again for a third time next week or no deal the only other option is of course this the u.k. council's article fifty entirely all but killing brags that that's the one thing they can do unilaterally now we've heard from the negotiating team from the e.u. side as well the deputy chief negotiator sabina whalen said she'd spoken to dutch prime minister mark rita who described the vote on wednesday evening to take no deal off the table a bit like the titanic voting to have the iceberg move out of its way it's not doesn't really mean anything apart from words we've also heard from the chief negotiator michel barnier he was speaking in bucharest and he said as it stood will certainly earlier on on thursday so wasn't sure what the goal of bragg's it was or
what it what it intends to achieve. it is. it's a lose lose situation. you. can. get it straight to me. to prove to me the added value. of the long and short of it is that now if there's an extension to break that it's going to depend on the leaders of the e.u. twenty seven if it happens or not if not britain still out on the twenty ninth of this month fine task of raising a professor of european know at tell you nevada city taught us to raise amaze influence is now at rock bottom. i think that we will go for an extension my sense is that it will be a longer extension to the more letting on really the idea that we're going to turn all of this around in three months is is in my view in the sky really imagine allowing your party
a free vote on look central pillar if you like of your policy because if you don't you're going to end up with either lots of ministers resigning. all mass rebellion even by some miracle she won next week simply not ready but no doubt the media in this country tomorrow will start saying what a great victory was for her so what will turn a great defeat in other words she was forced to concede a vote on the lying and but it'll be turned as as a victory how can or how can a defeat of that kind where a prime minister is being forced to do things that she didn't want to do and persistently said she wasn't going to do in the end have to do it and do it in a way that the mentor and the whole strategy the unity of the party is in tatters these are very very worrying times for the united kingdom very worrying times. he. breaks it killed.
the israeli city of tel aviv has come under rocket attack two explosions were heard in the area of the air raid warning sirens were triggered the projectiles were fired from the gaza strip which led to the activation of a defense systems in israel no council sees or any damage being reported prime minister netanyahu is meeting with the head of the country's military the last time rockets were fired at this hell of eve area was in two thousand and fourteen my colleague neil harvey spoke to israeli cabinet minister enough to be benison got his reaction to the latest incident. it's time to defeat hamas it's time to demilitarize the gaza strip we are fine with thriving on civilian basis but we cannot accept the. rocket fire on our homes here in tel aviv in the negev we left the gaza strip about
thirteen years ago. and. the moment we left they've been shooting rockets at us so we will not give up any more land it just doesn't make sense when we have learned over to the arabs they turn it into a radical islamic terrorist state and now it's time to fight back to state and we will the u.n. says that. the palestinian civilians were shot by israeli forces so do you surprised that there is an aggressive. response coming from palestinians we have the right of self-defense and they do not accept any sort of preach from folks on the other side of the world when we're being shot rockets from a piece of territory that we handed over to the arabs what i can say is that we won't do that again. well certainly no one's trying to preach and i think everybody understands no matter what the their grasp of the situation in the middle east is
that the violence the cycle of violence continues and that one begets more aggression. how is you know the what you're suggesting going to improve the situation we left gaza we want peace the moment they stop shooting missiles at my children's. home and kindergarten is the moment there will be peace we have to rhetorical demand over gaza and they just need to stop it if they stop it there will be peace that's very simple. and fresh crew is well on their way to a new home on the on board the international space station thursday their soyuz rockets roared to life blasting off from the baikonur cosmodrome artie's maria phenomena witnessed the action. again here in the morning to you can see them fifty nine six petition to the international space station starts oh my goodness look at this line. of.
rushes the space distance from here to the rocket in the skies again to national border russia aleksey of chanaan and two nasa astronauts nikkei and christina colgan here people who have gathered here from all around the globe to witness the launch of loading because that was picked tackler it. is so big clouded right now here is so i can still see the rocket in this cause in
just eight and a half minutes it is expected to reach the orbit and that it's going to take another six every round six and a half hours to dog with the international space station alexander haig of mondo's and horrid because you remember their previous mission in october didn't go well it was aborted made flight due to technical problems and just minutes off to the left all for sneak and aleksei had to return to earth in an emergency capsule maybe you remember these dramatic pictures from the inside of this emergency capsule showing nique shaking a really dramatic sad pictures but to it actually was a miracle that they had returned to earth on the hard.
this is where they were you think happy to pipe down some five hundred forty though from the long way from the river this way to deal with things they've gone on populated lending very talented and keen and need paid to lend it on farms i've been rude given that they've one with a fifty four majority he believed to be sent many times poorer than the force of gravity while on the ground no one was hurt either you want me there single shapard obama into law before they leave the area never mind the power for a really cool cool into the earth to replay world powers bring me flowers here on they haven't found that as well as around me who were praised for they were consistent. i had a chance to talk to both the nikkei and alexei of chaining and they have assured me that they are full of confidence ahead of flight and looking forward to finally
reach the international space station well the space launch is always a very spectacular thing to watch as you can imagine especially during nighttime like today so we are kind of a lockie but we are not the only one to witness the launch from the ground people from all around the globe come here to baikonur to see with their own eyes this is a spectacular as seen and actually to wave spacemen while they're sitting already inside the spacecraft funny thing is that spacecraft has no we actually those who are on board cannot see those who are on the ground but still it is very emotional moment for everybody involved earlier i've had a chance to talk to some of these enthusiastic tourists. the quiz that we take you can see such an event on there was in your lifetime one cannot miss it it's a great event it's very interesting and it's a huge step into space for all of the country we came last year in october to see
the space launch and as you know is a wonderful experience but they got up didn't get all the way up into space it was an aborted mission so we just got our mind to come back again we were five years old when they landed on the. spot a long time we were young but it was exciting and we are blessed because we lived near where neil armstrong the first man to step on the man he's from really close to where we live it's a special it's a one time experience and i'm glad all these people got to come to you and this is . a dream of mine since i was five years old and to watch a rocket go up and to come here which is the birthplace of russian space the russian space program for me is some emotional there is no long standing sort of ratio but it's just a long long standing journey you know i watched every launch i watch on the internet and even arranged my working life around the launches so.
we heard about this last year and we were looking forward to it and we saw the launch problems last year and we're getting more and more excited what is coming up after this break. join me every thursday on the all excitement show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to be. that you'd like to be close that's what the three of the more people get.
interested always in the why is it out. there. although the latest skirmish only indian pakistani border has faded from the headlines it left the leaders on both sides with high approval ratings will most spike in the polls lead to more risk taking when the next confrontation takes place . welcome back scottish investigators have reportedly links the cia to last month's mysterious attack on a north korean embassy in madrid spanish media say police have managed to identify at least two of the possible attack is back in february a group of ten masked peoples stormed pyongyang's mission in spain they restrained
and gagged eight members of staff and reportedly put bags on their heads one woman succeeded in escaping from a window on the second floor the attackers a skate with stolen computers and mobile phones it's been also suggested the raid was to get information on kim chawl the former north korean ambassador to spain he served in the post for years but in twenty seventeen was expelled by much. and following north korean nuclear tests he also played a key role in organizing the recent summits between kim jong un and donald trump in hanoi the spanish interior ministry has stated it will not comment on an ongoing investigation we had to pena from former cia analyst john kiriakou this is just not the way that the cia carries out an operation first of all the would have to have the permission of the director of the cia to do such as. a presidential appointee that's all and you know the cia would never do an operation that's so greece and in
so public in the middle of the day like that where they're with their centrally kidnapping diplomats and holding them hostage and beating them in and stealing their quickly that's just not how it's done if you do something to disrupt that summit something so brazen as a criminal act like this that would be that would be essentially an act of treason really at the very least it would be an act of insubordination and and people would go to prison so no i can't imagine that they would try to so obviously disrupt the summit and you know this this was not something that would have disrupted the summit if the summit was going to be disrupted it would have been something far more direct against the north koreans in north korea not in summer likes being we discussed the story with former british diplomat william mallinson over whether
the incident is serious in terms of diplomacy. unbelievably serious just as it was with the cia in chile for example nicaragua and other countries quite obviously the fact that the spanish police were not already there to stop these trials and the rest these people frankly is highly suspicious and it means either the spanish police were totally incompetent which i doubt because with the diplomatic question like that they'd be there within a city of law minutes or a speculate why didn't they surround the embassy immediately and stop those people getting out have the arrest of anybody how come they know some of the people how come they know enough to say that two of them have cia contacts there are spanish forces and u.s. forces at work to try half cover up what really happened so you cannot discount the possibility that there may be in one or two people who might for whatever reason have been involved it could be part of the cia even trying to embarrass the cia or maybe at the end of the day to embarrass john bolton the national security adviser
so they could be even be american forces yes indeed wanting to embarrass other american forces that is possible. eight teams have advanced to the quarterfinals of the champions league and tamara's through all the determine here faces home the first time in a decade half of the last eight english takes off for manchester united manager had been a radio gives his insight on protections of his name. on the touchline. when you have in the box or on the box that special q. or like the one all the ease and the single happen you need to leave the use these words that i should not thought of he's the guy that brings everything we team more than the leave that let me tell you that i'm not unhappy at all because in the end . only one that one leapt into doing for the whole season and now we has to build a team the social media is changing a lot and though we people approach approach football which we have

thanks to using r.c. international we're back at the top of the hour. the braggs it saga continues a deeply divided british house of commons can only seem to agree on one thing it doesn't want the u.k. to me beat you without a deal the problem is there isn't a parliamentary majority on what to do next maybe this was to resumes play and all along breaks it down. russia is not an ideological scarecrow russia is a real neighbor who will have to leave always being in nato you or wherever
and it's in our interests to go to russia told the russians and to understand. welcome to the alex i'm sure and the brig's to do new or at least yet another breaks it didn't go this week the house of commons despite a dramatic last gasp dash to south park rejected the brakes a deal and yet another meaningful vote by the crushing majority of one hundred forty nine and this meaningful vote was less than the even more crushing rejection in the last meaningful vote given at the highest of commons can have more visits to the final bricks at frontier than star checks equals we may get have another
episode however it is awaiting charges of this chaos from an unlikely source as a former on four to the people of the house of commons come up with an answer to bret's it from the benches of the high civil lords there's a real danger that this week the laws we will will again see around the political games in the house of commons where the livelihoods of working people and the future of businesses in wales and throughout these arguments at stake were interviewed by the wigley of canard. meanwhile the commons is trying to rule out a hard break that and ask for an extension to article fifty but without saying what they are ruling and for what purpose is seeking an extension confused believe me you are far from alone and the week of the spring statement from chancellor philip hammond we ask what is the impact on the real economy of brics it and also how local authorities are preparing to cope with the practical consequence but first
alex a few tweets emails i reaction to our first show on the fate of the sickest islanders before stop this week from fiona green who says thank you them examine show for covering their campaign that's the campaign or the shakers islanders i have followed this story for years let's hope they get the islands back soon and joe gotti follows us up by saying tarzan alec i had no idea about the should goes in people's clearances what an affront to democracy lymphomas and says thank you for making us aware of the scandal it's truly shocking and u.k. chigger support group or thanks paul monaghan who was a vase chair of the cross party parliamentary group on the islands if i can fall for once again speaking up about this terrible injustice and standing up for the she goes it is right to decide the future of the violence and the interesting contributions will surely who says that she was in the united states navy a long time ago before the internet only guys at that time could serve of what they
called the rock we were told it was uninhabited before the united states arrived she was just different we joined the ultimate parliament to why so to lord wigley in the second half of the show but first let us take a look at the impact of the breaks that process from economic theory to grassroots practice from a distinctively scottish perspective alex explores with economist george kind of in weather and where the becks impact is being felt and then with leading scottish kinds let chris michael amy just how local authorities are getting up for bricks that. just go and welcome the it seven show is so nice to be here in the flesh no let's have a look at the stand back and look at this economic landscape in the sense of this jacket delivering his political statement yes the very peculiar circumstances in which to be issuing a fundamental economic message you know what's weird the markets have been so quiet and i think is that nobody understands what's going on even the markets how meant
he knows we was going to happen with brakes is you can do very much so he's cutting the money in british texas it's a big going up the last few months and centuries just banking it and i personally as an economist and an activist i think rather than wait for something to descend from the heavens and and you react i think be more proactive you should be using the money in the economy british investment for the last four quarters every quarter investment in british manufacturing has been declining that is not a good sign but haven't is just putting the money in the bank and waiting for you know first see what happens next livia's a fund of bull was good to emerge from the heavens as a possible will see the charts or back at the spots box in a couple of weeks time say no i've got the the post breaks that spring statement well i'd like you if i was a betting man that's why bet on i think we've seen emergency budget look all of that he will believe he'll be back so with us for these breaks it's consuming the political bandwidth and one of the things is almost over with the political discourse is what's hard.
