brussels whether the terms on which we deliver our new trading ranges whether the new arrangements resemble those of australia as with the e.u. or whether they like those of canada with the e.u. i have absolutely no doubt that from january the 1st this country is going to prosper mightily misters here. johnson meets to live on the lion president of the european commission over dinner on wednesday evening it's simply to gauge appetite for compromise something needed to break the impasse over the future trading relationship between the u.k. and the european union if nothing emerges the chances of a no deal scenario on the 1st of january look greater the german chancellor insists that a use ready for that she says the area where the 2 sides are furthest apart is how to ensure fair competition in the midst of a level playing field national's your plate we need a level playing field and not just for today but for tomorrow and the next day we
7:06 pm
need agreements on how each side can react when the other side changes its legal parameters otherwise it will result in unfair competition and we won't let this happen to our businesses. differences over what access e.u. fishing fleets have to u.k. waters as seen as more solvable the other sticking point has been how to enforce any trade deal this week a u.k. e.u. joint committee agreed specific arrangements for northern ireland including managing the border with island now the u.k. has dropped legislation that would break international law but the committee's co-chair says level playing field demands remain a big problem the prime minister is being clear. that we're going to maintain high standards in this country but we're also going to be a sovereign country and that we need to be in control of our own rules and regulations our laws and ways of doing things e.u. leaders are holding their own summit on thursday and friday if there is no resolution tonight i think we will have more calls from even the decides to step up
7:07 pm
the narrative preparations but at the same time the e.u. will not walk away from these new ca sions they will try to negotiate until the very end until the actual deadline which is the said as of december and no deal bricks it is what many businesses in britain and the youth fear most incredibly nobody truly knows whether that's what they'll get in a few weeks time knitting barber al-jazeera one of the leading members of the palestinian liberation organization has submitted her resignation shrubby was the highest ranking female politician in the palestinian authority at a p.l.o. executive since 2009 let's go live now to ramallah to sarah's neda abraham is there why has had on a shrubby resigned. in the statement that she sent just almost an hour and a half ago she did not specify the reasoning behind her resignation she said that
7:08 pm
she's met with president mahmoud abbas on the 24th of november and she told him that she's going to be resigning and followed that up with the written resignation the next day she says that the president has referred to her as a nation to the palestinian central council this is the council that has reappointed are we to this position of being a p.l.o. executive committee member in 2018 but in harris statement she says that this is resignation wasn't supposed to be announced but it has been leaked to the media and we've heard some media has been to some sources telling them that she indeed did resign and in the statement she sent today she says while i appreciate and respect the president's position for my resignation and consider it to be in effect allow me to quote another. of her statement which is important for
7:09 pm
us to understand probably the reasoning behind it is ignition she says it's time to carry out that acquired 'd reform and activate the p.l.o. in a manner that restores it standing and rule and that could be also linked to the issue of saw a better death he was a senior palestinian official the p.l.o. secretary general and he has been responsible for the negotiations mandates in the low and it seems like there has been some sort of a disagreement on who is going to be taking that position after a pause that could be one of the reasons why ashrawi has resigned you don't hear him reporting live from ramallah thanks. the u.s. supreme court has rejected a last ditch attempt by republicans to reverse joe biden's electoral victory victory in the battleground state of pennsylvania the state's result has been certified in 5 or in favor of biden out of the one line statement the supreme court refused to call that certification process into question it deals an attempt by
7:10 pm
donald trump's republican party to have as many as 2 and a half 1000000 votes dismissed well i thought a washington white house correspondent kimberly hellcat is kimberly the president issuing a flurry of tweets this morning where we start including the one that just says hash tag over ton let's start with that pennsylvania result then that the president denying that that case was anything to do with him anyway and that he has bigger fish to fry in texas. yeah that's exactly right the u.s. president downplaying what was seen as a sizable loss of the u.s. supreme court in a case involving the u.s. state of pennsylvania that would invalidate millions of votes it's quite notable that given the fact that donald trump has 3 republican appointees on that court that there was 0 dissent that means that all the democratic appointed and republican appointed judges agreed that there was no merit to the case that was
7:11 pm
brought before them essentially what they were claiming is that these votes should be invalidated those defending the case said that this would really undermine u.s. democracy in the u.s. constitution and the judges agreed but donald trump has been tweeting a flurry of tweets i'll talk about one of them that references this pennsylvania case 1st and then we'll get to the rest the president saying this was not my case as has been so incorrectly reported that's why he's talking out of pennsylvania the case that everyone has been waiting for is the state's case with texas that's still to be heard and numerous others joining it is very strong all criteria met how can you have a presidency when the vast majority think the election was rigged the case the president's pinning his hopes on texas the attorney general leading it out of that state but it involves pennsylvania georgia michigan and wisconsin and essentially what they're asking the supreme court to do is to declare that the electoral college votes in that state not go to joe biden so that's it in
7:12 pm
a nutshell but again given the track record it doesn't look hopeful now very quickly all those other tweets that the president was talking about the hash tag overturn he's trying to undo the election results and he's being very clear about it he says there's massive evidence he said he had hundreds of thousands of legal votes more than joe biden that's not what the results show so far and he's also pointing out that no candidate historically has ever won florida or ohio and still . last donald trump pointed out he won both of those states bring into question again the election results but this will have to be heard by the courts so far the evidence that has been presented by the campaign the courts have said has been flimsy and also has not been enough to show there was widespread fraud and off to overturn these election results so donald trump still clearly picking his case on hopes on the supreme court but again it would be a long shot a white house correspondent kennedy how could life for us in washington can but he
7:13 pm
meant that he thinks it will get a weather update next here i'll just hear oh then a high turnout in indonesia's regional elections has doctors worried about clusters of covert 19 about. 5 years out paying for a documentary about an ancient aboriginal size a mining company destroyed its spring told to pay for it. hello we still have a few showers in the full cost for russia pat nothing too much to speak of you see more in the way of cloud out into the open waters here we want to show us just around honshu maybe some wintry florist coming up into hokkaido for a time but it's brightening optimal see temperatures getting up to maybe 15 celsius in tokyo as we go on through friday as that dry weather is christe sunshine but
