a significant blow for for johnny continue who was very keen to pull this off not least because it would have generated somewhere in the region of 302400 1000000 extra dollars but you know as soon as it was mooted a couple of years ago in juneau took it up and ran with it it became virtually a sort of pet project but as soon as the findings of this be for feasibility study came out it was always going to be a tall order it's true because our neighbors. have imposed this block in this ongoing blockade which made it very difficult if not impossible to share the tournament with then you had to be shared it was going to be expanded but they obviously couldn't do it nor could own man who recently said it simply didn't have the facilities so that kind of world out any hopes of co-hosting a part perhaps one with ok wait also you had the situation adding 16 more teams
10:42 pm
would have meant potentially playing 6 matches date in order to squeeze it squeeze the tournament into the 28 days that have been a allocated and then of course you have the situation that guitar because of its very size and its infrastructure simply couldn't host $48.00 teams on its own so it was i think it was you know extremely tricky to say the least from the start or africa could have had up to 4 extra tains at an enlarged tournament's going in football writes a carry out smith says the fifa presidents will now face and tough questions from the continent. african countries have historically honestly not done well at a world cup. given them and it's been this has been used to us if i should put it that way for a long time it makes it even more difficult for african countries to progress to the latter stages of the competition and it's a massive massive disappointment this was one of the promises he made to the different configurations and it appeared that he delivered it and now that it's not

like this is the line from. u.s. border officials evacuated child to tension center after a flu outbreak kills a 16 year old guatemalan migrant a 6th child to die in the custody of border guards since september. the u.k. suffers a crushing defeat in a u.n. vote so i. want to lift the hunting ban on elephants despite the animal being in danger elsewhere. all right so you begin with the biggest election on earth and indian prime minister narendra modi appears to be on course for a landslide victory. so you can look at the scenes at the headquarters. party he's about to address his supporters. suggest that the party has a big. one has more from you. the count is not even over but other headquarters the celebrations have begun.
10:50 pm
supporters are confident of victory could this be a 2nd consecutive government in the making the votes of hundreds of millions of indians are being collated and candidates and their agents are focusing on the district centers in each constituency. the election commission says the turnout was the largest in indian election history more than 600000000 people voted out of 900000000 that were eligible to take part in the 6 week election the issues are very clear for some. people have voted for nationalism for the good of the country and for development work done by multi multi task. people that. this election has been one of the most divisive in modern indian history i think. that imagination was fixed. and then you start feeding them. so it seems that in the post
10:51 pm

10:52 pm
party workers who are putting up a tough fight our battle is of ideology and vision and the people seem to have chosen to be j.p. and speak now to our correspondent joins us now from the capital new delhi and so it looks like a resoundingly mandate how much was surprising. but it is a huge surprise everybody we talked to today you know from policemen to passers by to those are just coming to be around the location where we were earlier in the day near parliament were surprised that the level of victory the march of the victory that it seems is so nominal i mean and the fact that rathole gandy has spoken as well when i was here for 24 to an election and he did not speak when the congress conceded defeat now what he said there was as near to a concession speech as we're going to get in the next year as he did actually say nick is well i just want to go he said i've kept
10:53 pm
a line with whatever insults i faced i would always treat others with respect to day is not a day to go into details today is the day for the new government and i want to. say to congress workers not to be afraid of the future i mean the speech went on for quite some time and so he's still trying to rally his supporters whereas modi for example obviously is incredibly pleased with the results so far as you can see from those pictures as he walked in with the president of the b j p officially the b j p one around about 49 seats according to the election commission they are in the lead in certain constituencies in 250 seats i say these are still a state try. ns but we assume that these are pictures trends we will get those confirmed results from the election commission what's a counted verified notarized and hunted the wedding certificate to the new member of parliament to those respective constituencies that b j p campaign clearly then
10:54 pm
has paid off what issues they have been forgotten. well while you saw in that report you know the issue of the nationalism of beating the drum about who we are as indians and also ready the defense of the realm against its enemies many pakistanis certainly has hit a chord with indians now of course the opposition has been quite critical of the b j p government using that line saying that it was. using the people using the line using the nationalistic bombastic tone to drum up support when they should actually be talking about the issues they never talked about unemployment unemployment figures were the highest since 2016 those figures were released on the 2nd of may to the consternation of the opposition because they wanted them released before the election campaign to begin so they could be debated to debate on g.s.t.
10:55 pm
the new implementation of tax nick and the de monetise ation if you remember in 26 in 2016 when they took the big 500 or 1000 rupee notes out of circulation was a huge disaster for the agricultural sector farmers to still suffering from that because they work on a cash crop they work on a cash salary they don't have plastic credit cards they don't have a bank near them and these issues are playing out the congress the opposition parties played to those fears those worries those concerns answered the questions of those communities the beaches he didn't to all intents and purposes they managed to sell a campaign on an individual on modi the image modi the fact most of the international statesman it will now be a case that mr modi has to deal with high unemployment rates infrastructure projects which have been delayed or broken down he will have to deal with the health and education crisis that does roam free across this country and certainly
10:56 pm
he will have to address angry farmers across the country because out those farmers they carve a seed indians here. it is just very country yet of course you don't want to sort of just for example charles getting the basics so that people actually do the hard work in the fields it's practically nonexistent so all right we'll leave it there thanks a lot reporting from new delhi. oh voting is going on a way to in the european union electing members of the european parliament's between now and sunday people from 28 nations will choose i mean pays to represent the u.k. and the netherlands are the 1st countries to vote and all the while britain's prime minister to resign may is resisting calls to resign after her latest breaks it plan backfired may's new pitch failed to win over both the opposition and many in her own party one of her seen in a cabinet ministers the leader of the house of commons who is under that some she resigned after saying she doesn't believe the new proposals can deliver break that
10:57 pm
revised plan include included provision for a possible 2nd bricks it referendum let's bring in lawrence and he has got the latest from london and lawrence given that everybody is saying that series of may is done that she is finished why she's still there. apart from her. she's she's she's still clinging on and you know she apparently this afternoon as she's trying to rewrite the withdrawal agreement bill again presumably taking out the most controversial bit about a contingent continuance of the 2nd referendum in its and talking to ministers as to whether the market for that but there you know the rest of the one that she presented the other day was exactly the same effectively as the ones that have already failed 3 times by record margins and you know it is tempting to just say it was completely blind and deaf to what's going on around her because all her own m.p.'s are just run out of road with her now and the thinking seems to be that some
10:58 pm
are morning after the head of the the rank and file and please go to see her and says you've got to tell us when you can they go see otherwise they're going to try and rewrite the rules and bring a vote of no confidence in against you anyway. i think what she'll do is to stand outside downing street and she'll say that she's going to step down as the leader of the conservative party which would allow a contest to begin to have a new conservative party leader but she'll probably also say she'll stay on as prime minister for the next few weeks until that contest is is finished and i think part of that from her point of view is that because she is so stubborn and bloody minded and feel so betrayed by her own party because she thought she presented a sort of bracks it would work and they're just throwing it back in the face that she doesn't want to leave on that but in her own. anyway if she does that then it allows that contest to suit to go ahead and they will take several weeks it will go straight through the whole of june into july. where the conservative party will go
10:59 pm
and so there's a huge navel gazing period again and bicker among itself between soft conservatives who want to retain a relationship with the union and the hardcore you don't have the hardcore. i think will will win because in the end it will go to votes among the conservative party membership who are very hard core and that explains why someone like boris johnson the former foreign secretary is the favorite to succeed and that will end when when parliament breaks up for the summer. and there's the world watches this as a fiasco as new which is this fiasco unfold in the european union observes this year what are they thinking about it. well you know i mean they say they've got all the no deal planning in place already i mean there are several countries in particular the french who you know of are saying quite openly seen a minister saying they just want the u.k. to leave and they certainly don't want the european union to give it another
11:00 pm
extension poles october 31st to sort it out which we wish is where we're at now. head of the european council had said don't waste this tell him find some alternative strategy and they have their ways all the time so far has gotten absolutely nowhere but it seems to me if you get a real hard liner in who says out loud i'm prepared to take the u.k. out with no deal that is going to focus minds very much as. if that's boris johnson he wouldn't get anywhere in the autumn ready with talks with the european union if it's all brinkmanship they won't back down and they just say fine go off it go but if it had to come to a general election then that theory would be tested to destruction wouldn't it because if the polling is correct then there are now a majority of people in the country if you have them all up who don't want to leave the european union at all and of change their mind and so this is why i keep saying .
