12:02 pm
possible that you will be immune to change the fundamental position when it comes to seizures i do think that the rich. because it is advisory. we do the work you studies to in an attempt to rally support for the agreement back home prime minister to resign may has written an open letter to reassure the public saying it will be our deal it will be a deal that is in our national interests one that works for our whole country and all of our people whether you voted leave or remain we will take back control of our borders by putting an end to the free movement of people once and for all jonah hols joining us from brussels and we see now the e.u. leaders arriving jonah but is this something of a formality passing the brics a deal at the e.u. level. well those e.u. leaders as you say arriving for
12:03 pm
a working session now before to reason may joins them in an hour's time they've been. more or less with one voice pointing out the deal on the table is the best deal vailable to the united kingdom however hard it's going to be for tourism aid to sell it to the country and crucially to parliament and you see increasingly desperate efforts that letter now to the people of great britain basically urging them to tell their m.p.'s to vote for this deal it is all that the e.u. is going to offer will it be a formality will yes largely it's going to be waved through throughout this process the e.u. twenty seven of negotiated in lockstep indecision and division in the process is largely been on the u.k. side there be no formal vote they'll be looking for consensus around. the table and i'm pretty sure they'll get it remember two texts are now on the table they've been negotiated they are closed they're not going to be talked about or opened at this session that would draw all agreement of detailed document setting out the exit
12:04 pm
protocols the amount of money that britain must pay in terms of its outstanding legal obligations citizens' rights the very controversial backstop agreement involving northern ireland designed to keep the border on the island of ireland oakland after the transition period and before a final trading relationship is concluded and then of course there's the political declaration a known legally binding document setting out the goalposts for a future relationship with two sides hope to be able to achieve after breaks in negotiations that could frankly take years to order final trading relationship but remember this is not the end of the matter this is a hugely important milestone on the road to break that but the big battle comes in the british parliament perhaps in two weeks time for the president of the european commission is saying that this is a sad day for the e.u. is that the general mood at the summit. i think that's likely it's going to be
12:05 pm
a somber rather mournful occasion as opposed to any sort of celebration after two very difficult years of negotiation getting these texts on the table. the reality of the situation is that e.u. leaders will have very firmly in mind quite what this moment signifies britain leaving the european union a very significant a giant member of the union a model of ottoman tree democracy a leading light in the expansion of the european union a moderating balancing force in leadership alongside germany and france and of course a bridge to the united states and it leaves a european union dealing with some very significant problems of its own the rise of nationalist populism pushback from the southern states on budgetary she's basically italy at the moment of the rollback of democracy look at countries like hungary and poland so it's a big moment for everybody here certainly not to celebrate three one hour i don't know how thank you it's. a search and rescue operation is underway in uganda after
