to this bald britain's parliament has rejected prime minister barak's johnson's plan to fast track his brakes a deal with the european union that means there's little chance of the u.k. leaving the block by october 31st were a challenge reports from westminster. it is as m.p.'s point out unprecedented for parliament to pass such a large and important bill so quickly yet the governments wanted its withdrawal agreement bill through the commons before the end of the week mr speaker i was incredibly concerned when i was reminded by my wife earlier today that we spent my wife and i spent longer choosing a school for then we have city bay this incredibly cool to hear on tuesday the legislation for leaving the european union was facing 2 hurdles would m.p.'s vote to give it more consideration and would they agree to the government's breakneck timetable the prime minister hopes he could focus minds with this warning
if parliament refuses to allow the brics to happen and instead gets its way in decides to delay everything until january possibly longer is a great regret i would say that the book the bill will have to be pulled and we will have to go forward much as the right order may not like it will have to go forward to a general election 1st up would m.p.'s give his withdrawal agreement build their approval in principle so the guys have it the ayes have it m.p.'s gave it a nod through to a 2nd reading a crucial victory for the prime minister the 1st time in this tortured saga that parliament has given any breaks a deal any kind of approval but glory was short lived next up was the vote on the timetable. the guys to the right 308 it's no use to the last 322 so the notice having the notice have it once again
m.p.'s have slammed the brakes on brakes it tonight's the house has refused to be balanced into debating a hugely significant piece of legislation in just 2 days with barely any notice and an analysis of the. impact of this bill the prime minister is the also of his own misfortune jeremy corwin offered to work together to find a mutually agreeable timetable for us johnson responded by saying he was putting the bill on hold for now his do or die dreams of leaving the e.u. on october 31st look to have been dealt a mortal blow so what i was next depends on the e.u. it's been considering that letter boris johnson was obliged by parliament to write last saturday requesting a break that extension if it grants a long 1 january or further then as we've just heard from the prime minister he is going to try pushing for a general election if we get something short all more flexible than that suggests
that the e.u. like boris johnson just wants to get the brakes it done before which alan's al-jazeera london the top u.s. diplomat in ukraine has just wrapped up 10 hours of testimony and the impeachment inquiry into president donald trump democrats leading that deposition say william taylor has provided the clearest account the tramp pressured ukraine to investigate a political rival in exchange for military aid alan fisher has more from washington d.c. . well what we're hearing is that william taylor's testimony was detailed and credible according to democratic lawmakers what is more important perhaps is going to be this this is his opening statement is 15 pages long longer than you would expect normally in this sort of situation and this is bad news for donald trump essentially says although donald trump has used the phrase no quid pro quo william taylor suggests that absolutely was because donald trump was holding back aid from
ukraine unless it announced publicly announced that it was going to carry out an investigation into joe biden and the 2016 election now that's important because of course donald trump's big phrase there's been no quid pro quo nope quid pro quo in the document donald trump again makes it clear there is no quid pro quo but he wants to put the ukrainian president in the public box by a known saying this statement so that was very interesting what is also interesting as well is that william taylor says that when he arrived in ukraine and he was appointed as after donald trump got rid of the original ambassador might promptly or pointed to the post he said that there was a separate line of communication between the united states and ukrainian figures and leading that secondary strain was rudy giuliani who of course has no position in the u.s.
government here is donald trump's personal lawyer and he's courting to william taylor he said that what was clear is that they were not pursuing him that would really benefit americans or more. foreign policy goals in ukraine so this is really quite a damning document and i'm sure it is something that the democrats are going to dig deeper into because there are a lot of names mentioned here and that means a lot more subpoenas. now u.s. court has begun hearing arguments in a landmark case that accuses the oil giant exxon mobil of climate change fraud climate activists protested outside the new york courthouse as the trial began the company is accused of misleading investors about the cost of climate change regulations on its business exxon has denied the claims it's the 1st of many similar lawsuits against major oil companies to go to court this trial is expected to last 3 weeks. i mean i hope it sets a precedent of holding companies and all major polluters and corporations in
general accountable for the information that they given that they hide to the american public and i am sort of technical level i hope that today brings us more documents from exxon mobil one and covers even more of what they knew and how long they have known about climate change and what work they've done to cover it up that night that information from the public. while the weather is next but still ahead human rights groups raise concerns about the way it is dealing with anti-government protesters. and a town in bosnia takes drastic steps to try to stem the flow of asylum seekers. we have some rain showers in the forecast across sections of the middle east quite a bit of cloud again in the last year as on the huge amount of rain tied to this

thunderstorm here's a go into thursday temperatures coming down a little bit and certainly on thursday some shells possible in cape town. as a sponsor. what are you protesting about how does this impact where their online life face minstrelsy comes directly out of translated slavery or if you join us on saying this is an attack on academic freedom and on our ability to do research and teach freely this is a dialogue myanmar is not making it very welcoming for people to come about everyone has a voice. through the discourse through open door in your view to the solutions is iraq.
