a waste of time effort and energy so i expected or democrats will drag this out as much as they possibly can not because they think there's anything to be found but because they know that this trial this kind of circ is is helping to energize the democratic base helping them to say look trump is really bad for these reasons. a petition calling for breaks it to be canceled has raised nearly four million signatures since wednesday setting a record for the parliament website it comes amid increasing and certainty of the future of the u.k.'s divorce from the e.u. on thursday british prime minister trade the may was in brussels to negotiate an extension to the withdrawal deadline the it is agreed to a two week delay until may the twenty second all in the process twice rejected the deal if not he'll have only until april the twelve to propose a new plan however the prime minister has said a fresh vote may not take place next week is expected spring break is it into even further disarray following all the twists and turns of the saga is all if i can.

remember that simpsons episode where bart keeps touching the electrified cupcake. it all looks a bit like to resume a's attempts to get her brags it deals through parliament the woman tasked with leading the country at it's great. first hour since world war two it hasn't got many people doing up to defend it's just going oh no no no no no she is the roadblock to this house reaching majority when will she develop a backbone and stand down to do was take this mission to disaster week reach. britain's departure from the e.u. is likely to be delayed and the wheels off or laying off the brags that bus but if you think about it to reason may wasn't the one that called the referendum in the first place
4:06 am
a certain previous prime minister did and she has hammered out that deal with the e.u. like she was supposed to but the politicians in parliament won't sign off on it because some of them are hard bragg's it is that want to stick it to brussels and many of them remain is that want to stick with brussels and pleasing the politicians in a predominantly remain a parliament while carrying out the will of the people is turning into an impossible task some say she's trapped like the time she couldn't get out of this car carrying the poisoned brags that chalice. even donald trump has had a dig i'm surprised to help their believe it's all gone voices of support are rare i don't always agree with her but i know her to be a woman of coverage i also feel sorry for her because we have actually given her an impossible task for critics though there's no excusing mase bungled bragg's it with

public anger over brags that running high laughing at the prime minister has become a national pastime. come with me and together they seize the day. and evening. what's. the plan. it's. the very thing that i. got a number. and who can forget the best one liner she's ever delivered bricks it means bricks it years from now to reason may is likely to be seen as the braggs it prime minister her legacy depends on it has message to the people of britain is that she is trying her hardest to
4:08 am
deliver britain's departure from the e.u. this i am absolutely sure you are the public have had enough your charge of the infighting your charge of the political games and the arcane procedural rounds tired of m.p.'s talking about nothing else but bricks it when you have real concerns about our children schools our national health service knife crime. you want this stage of the bricks it process to be over and done with i agree on your side she might be forgiven for wondering if there is anyone left on her. political commentator andrei walker says teresa mayes opposed to bragg's it is a failure. she is trying her best to deliver on the referendum result but she's dead wrong in the way of doing it the withdrawal agreements and the the backstop means that unless the irish agree with trade agreements we end up being ruled by

brussels in perpetuity that can't make any sense for a sensible democratic western nation so it's a reason they may well be doing have past and she's she's fighting apollo but that desperately wants to remain in the european union what nobody is thinking about is what the ordinary voters want of people want to leave the european union that's what the majority want so we consulted polman we consulted the government we consulted the european union and they've all got their views well actually i think about what the public wants i mean really what the public wants is not to extend article fifty and it's not to have any sort withdrawal agreement it's a lever become a fully independent nation at the eleven o'clock twelve o'clock yuletide next friday. and soldiers will be allowed to open fire during an investor testify lives put in danger by ryan says that's according to an army general speaking of a nineteenth consecutive weekend of nationwide demonstrations on saturday last

weekend the capital paris chaotic scene. thousands of soldiers will be deployed to side french government buildings ati's and medina caution of reports from paris. another week and other protests but this time opening fire at crowds is apparently an option seen you do see a lot of the soldiers are strictly set out extremely precise they have different modes of action to face or threat so you could go as far as opening fire if they're also one else's life is a threat this saturday over five thousand armed soldiers will be in the streets
4:11 am
parisians are divided over the prospect with some calling it catastrophic i think this is an extreme measure obviously this will not solve everything but at least it will help to avoid further destruction and i don't know i don't think anything good will come of the government's decision to use their army but if you ask for what they did last saturday they burned down restaurants and so on i think this is a necessary measure so. it's not the army's mission that shows the failure of the government and the failure of our petition is. that i think if the army opens fire it will prove that crisis management was not sufficient so i think that bringing the army as a way of responding to the crisis but it's not a solution to the problem the politicians from across the political spectrum have reacted with anger to this latest measure it's a serious mistake imagine them standing in front of the national assembly or elysee

the result of powerlessness but rather a public order response to this precise reality holder who look and. it seems to be going up security on the streets is the only solution to this crisis that i am a crown can see and he is now turning his attention to other challenges today brics it for me is not a technical negotiation it's a political lesson before anything else we have to acknowledge that china has been playing on our divisions and i believe that when anyone brings their domestic problems or divisions to the european council it is waste of time and i don't have time to waste. the nineteenth weekend of protests just now here at the french capital as braised for

a fresh outpouring of anger and the protesters have adopted the slogan the war has been declared. a canadian opposition lawmaker has lashed out at the prime minister calling him a fake feminist in a fiery parliamentary session michel that implicates justin trudeau of silencing powerful women in an ongoing corruption scandal. the use of the term them and they are asked one more time if this prime minister started to demonstrate why she was lying the former attorney. the former attorney general who the lawmaker just mentioned is one of four top officials to resigned in a bribery case that's shaken the canadian government jody wilson raybold says she was pressured by trudeau to drop an investigation into canadian engineering giant s. and c. level of the company is also one of the world's largest construction firms in twenty fifteen s. and c. level and was charged with bribery and fraud in libya it allegedly paid ninety

eight million dollars to gadhafi era officials to secure new creative contracts including the world's biggest irrigation project. in the wake of the scandal trudeau's approval ratings have slumped from forty one percent in january down to thirty three percent this month and widespread calls for his resignation the canadian prime minister has denied any wrongdoing insisting he was safeguarding the interests of his i and my staff always acted appropriately and professionally we of course had discussions about the potential loss of nine thousand jobs in communities across the country we spoke to canadian journalist lauren southern who says just in today's feminism times have been used to school political points. this is not about holding true to one's values it is not about actually having a code of ethics it is about winning elections you know government has made it such
4:16 am
a priority they have used accusations of sexism they have used the term feminist to prop up their party so much that other conservatives are almost forced to bring this up in the conversation because they have made it such an important political debate so if your party is going to be about equality half women half men in the parliament that is going to be the hill that your party guys on that you better stand on it and if you're going to use that as a weapon well then be prepared for that to be used as a weapon against you trudeau when you don't live up to your own values this will certainly make it a closer election than i initially thought and i think the conservatives could have a chance at taking things if trudeau continues down this road of scandal after scandal. and while his foreign minister has called on donald trump and the u.s. vice president to step down for the future of all humanity he was responding to mike pence insistence that nicolas maduro must go u.s.

4:20 am
the book of revelation is filled with imagery of revenge destruction death and violence these examples are inconsistent with your claim that you converted to christianity after discovering it is a peaceful religion. the church of england was left unimpressed saying it was concerned that an asylum seekers' fate might be decided by a misunderstanding of sacred texts the home office says the rejection letter was an anomaly not in line with its general policies and that it will work on training its staff the latest figures show that as silent applications in the u.k. we saw most thirty thousand in twenty eight hundred sixty seven percent of applicants are rejected first time around he spoke with the chairman of an immigration consultancy firm he thinks that the home office is looking for excuses to turn down refugees it is surprising that the home office should behave the way bart do you know unfortunately in some respects it's not surprising because
4:21 am
there are quite unreasonable around help for. a looking for excuses to turn down asylum cases even cases which many people would consider to be quite genuine so you know the unfortunate there we are the home office of quite inventive in a way and can come up with you know a whole range of reasons to fuse asylum you know which can be completely unjustified you are unfortunately governments want to have been tough on immigration and the home office are under pressure to be nasty are helpful and so on for sure that's what's happening so perhaps it's not just the home office officials fault was also the government's for for encouraging officials to be nasty and helpful. yes present on china has ordered his treasury to cancel additional sanctions against north korea you know the decision over twitter earlier though u.s. national security advisor john bolton noted the importance of the measures against

north korea from suspicion comes after the withdrawal of north korean staff from the into korean liaison office. north korea informed us this morning that it would pull out its staff from the liaison office on instructions from a superior authority and it would through its staff the north said it doesn't mind the south remaining in the office and that it will more to fight on further practical matters in the future our government finds the north decision regrettable and it is hoped that the north returns its staff to the liaison office for normal operations as it was agreed between the two countries the entire korean liaison office was opened in september twenty eighth seen as a sign of warming ties between cell in pyongyang it facilitates regular communications on various issues and functions as a defacto embassy if it's not clear if the withdrawal of the north korean staff was connected to the threat of further sanctions but asian analysts are up to says
4:23 am
china's decision to cancel additional restrictions is a response to the withdrawal. we'll then i think a couple of weeks we will hear back from the north korean side as to how they would like to proceed further the ball really resides on the north korean side on how they will respond after hanoi and i think donald trump is going a little way out a little out of his way to ensure that he doesn't mess things up u.s. north korea talks sayat of very delicate fears or this point of time north korea essentially has to get back to the u.s. how it wants to go forward and dark rum doesn't want to do that in a negative direction by imposing a new whole set of sanctions and that's why he's kind of trying to ensure that at least at the leader to leader level there's good communication and a good relationship because he believes north korea is a top down society and of kim jong un can take that strategic decision which he needs to make it will unlock the door to of very positive relationship and positive

vaccine videos claiming they violate its policies against harmful or dangerous acts . we discussed the issue with a radio host and political commentator dave perkins whole thinks that social media users should have access to all sides of any argument. i am concerned deeply concerned that instagram has put itself in the position of not only rendering expertise on what looks to me like a bad a cold matter but also in the position of judging what people should hear and what they should not hear in a free country in a free world in a modern world we should all get to hear all the sides of every argument and we should all be allowed to make up our own mind i'm closer to pro-vaccine that anti but i would very much like to know that nothing is being kept from me while i finish making up my mind instagram's put itself in the position of doing exactly that keeping information from me and if i were a parent with a young child it's information i would be vitally concerned about so yeah that's
