which to do away from. the obvious we did a kind of lunge for the web in one. i never saw any contact with. any kind went back to where they were back here again fifteen feet apart at this point and that's when the. person may blames the parliament for breaks a chaos as the e.u. exit deadline looms the opposition accuses her of pushing the country to the brink of disaster. and these have been unable to agree as a result we will now be on time with

10:02 pm
brecht's it day in her opinion should be june thirtieth she said that her deal was still the best option on the table it's still one that can be negotiated tax m.p.'s for failing to make a decision urging it was high time that they made up their minds and she was pointing fingers of blame on m.p.'s for their inability to push her over the line in parliament two years on m.p.'s have been unable to agree on a way to implement the u.k.'s withdraw. as a result we will now not leave on time with a deal on the twenty ninth of march. this delay is a matter of great personal regret for me so let's take a step back to where this brecht's at saka began this week now it follows a letter sent by to reason made to donald tusk requesting and asking for an official breck extension therefore extending article fifteen now the letter clearly shows that with just nine days to go to west supposedly leaving the european union
10:03 pm
that deadline would be nigh on impossible to ratify a deal constructively so now june the thirtieth is what the prime minister really wants and she has made it clear that she doesn't want to be part of anything that would extend further than june the thirtieth now responding to that request donald suggested the request would probably get backing for the rest of the e.u. twenty seven leaders on one condition now that condition is absolutely crucial that being that carries a maze twice rejected deal finally gets backing from across the house in parliament believe the show to extend would be possible. to have the. votes on there was a drop. in the house of commons so if those conditions are not met well grex in that case is still just nine days away now back here in westminster though theresa may has received a new way of backlash for her decision to request
10:04 pm
a delay to article fifty in particular for it could norrin the will of the people and ignoring the will of parliament now the opposition leader jeremy corp and he's been quite vocal in his condemnation and has described the prime minister's actions and the state of british politics as a national crisis and the government's actions are in chaos all she's doing is running down the clock after a second street today was just marks one month since the referendum and this government is lead the country. into crisis. chaos and division so now all eyes are on the e.u. and britain in the summit on thursday and friday off this week to try and break the deadlock that has defined the last one thousand days hare in britain of course all that time ago we saw the breck that referendum went by britain chose to leave the european union but all this time later bringing it back into the context of today
10:05 pm
with thing no progress raping made nobody really anticipated we'd still be in a deadlock still across the house and the public division is really the word that encapsulates the sentiments across the house international history professor alan scared thinks theresa may is taking a huge gamble by effectively threatening parliament i think super leaves that if you write to the last minute and duke says if the only alternative is no deal then her opponents will collapse but of course many of their opponents in the country don't want to deal there will no deal so the because they're happy for the deal to fail the fact remains that suited to the dreadful deal most people don't like it most people think it's not to debate you didn't trust the public against it once against it except her because this deal is all in brussels and does nothing for the united kingdom. as
10:06 pm
a safe the speaker loves the deal to come back if it does come back i think it will sail again then two groups use the sure troops to. go that stage the european union mark just so it will goodbye no deal. facebook has apologized for banning donald trump's social media director believing him to be a bot or to scale market has much. we have an apology from facebook for banning the account of dan scavenger the white house social media director they are confirming that it is indeed outrageous to claim that he was a bot that the account was definitely not a bot account it was a legit account and that he should not have been blocked in order to stop automated bots we count the amount of identical repetitive activity coming from one account in a short period of time such as mentioning people these limits can have the unintended consequence of temporarily preventing real people like bans convener from engaging in such activity but lift in an hour or two which is what happened in this case
10:07 pm
we've been in touch with him and have apologized for the inconvenience trump was quick to speak up on social media saying that it was a political move not motivated by alleged bot activity trump spoke up saying facebook google and twitter not to mention the corrupt media are so on the side of the radical left democrats but fear not we will win anyway just like we did before he also attacked the media as he often does when speaking to reporters during his meeting with both the naro use the word collusion very loosely all the time and i will tell you there is collusion with respect to that because something has to be going on and when you get the back scene back office statements made by executives of the various companies and you see the level of. in many cases hatred they have for a certain group of people that happened to be in power that happened to have won the election you say that's really unfair conservative lawmaker devon noone is his at
10:08 pm
this point suing twitter saying that it discriminates against conservatives that it hides the message of conservatives and highlights libel and slander against conservatives at this point there is widespread criticism of social media outlets for the fact that they seem to have a huge amount of influence in crafting public opinion. and not only in the united states but around the world and many of the conservatives who are now criticizing social media mine are police they essentially argue that they are abusing that power. censorship concerns are also being debated in australia on tuesday the country's largest telecoms company blocked access to a number of websites that are continuing to display footage of friday's mosque attacks in a new zealand telstra gave a statement explaining the move we have moved to temporarily block a number of websites that continue to host a friday's terrorist attack in christ church when the stand this may cause
10:09 pm
inconvenience for some legitimate uses of these sites but these are extraordinary circumstances and they're required an extraordinary response we appreciate that it is necessary to ensure free speech is carefully balanced against protecting the community but with these sites continuing to host disturbing content we feel it is the right thing to do to block them. tech companies and social media platforms are being asked to explain why they allowed videos of the massacre to be shown it's already in australia are also investigating whether a number of national t.v. stations used the footage appropriately and in new zealand itself the three largest internet providers have temporarily suspended access to sites hosting images of the atrocity. where around seventeen minutes the gunman live streamed the massacre on facebook although the company says it worked to remove the footage it could still reportedly be found with relative ease hours after the shootings privacy activist and technology expert bill new says the that effectively policing content is an
10:10 pm
unwinnable battle. obviously we have had to have rules in terms of taste and decency and what is or is not offensive but what some people would argue is offensive other people cannot. speech and it's very difficult for regulations to define this for all circumstances and therefore very difficult for some of the hosting providers actually to moderate accurately especially given the volume of it and the difficulty of this moment in time for any form of ai to differentiate in terms of water appears in the video it's very very difficult then of course there's a lot of talk now about encryption more and more content especially of messaging platforms starts to become encrypted you'll be even going to be able to see what any form of moderated position is going to be impossible. russia's foreign minister is warning against the emergence of
