i'm brian thomas thanks so much for being with us the british prime minister trees in may is racing against the clock to win support at home and abroad for back supply with the e.u. set to vote on sunday may still has to convince the skeptics in her own party who call it a sellout the actual the deal was agreed last week what may in the e.u. or ago she nick negotiating now is a declaration covering future relations may has been seeking possible concessions but her prospects for that are not looking good. teresa mayes hoping the road to brecht's its success at home might just run through brussels together with e.u. chief john claude juncker she's trying to hammer out the text of a draft deal governing her country's future relationship with the e.u. but a two hour meeting behind closed doors only yielded a pledge to talk more we've had
a very good meeting this evening we've made further progress and as a result we've given sufficient direction to our negotiators i hope for them to be able to resolve the remaining issues and that work will start immediately i now plan to return for further meetings including with president on saturday to discuss how we can bring to a conclusion this process and bring it to a conclusion in the interests of all our people. by fighting for a better deal in brussels may could boost her chances of winning parliamentary approval for her plan before meeting with junker she get made her case to skeptical lawmakers at home. if you look at the alternative to having that deal with the european union it will either be more uncertainty more division or it could risk no brics it recent polls show that actually a cost majority of people would like no. the prime minister didn't jonson the question is this the final deal or not beyond her domestic critics here fresh
concerns from abroad over the status of the disputed british territory japan spanish prime minister pedro sanchez says he wants assurances that madrid will be able to negotiate the future of your polter directly with the u.k. and italy most believe that we have told for european commission the institutions of the e.u. and also of the ninety kingdom this is an essential point for a pro european government like the government of spain. if this is not solved by sunday spain as a pro european government will have to vote no and use its veto it will go by the at the bit ott. and with just days to go before the e.u. is expected to sign off on britain's divorce from the bloc there was an extra pressure from german chancellor merkel she says she won't negotiate with may at the summit and could boycott sunday's meeting unless the draft deal is agreed in good time. and to talk about this new development and much more with me in the studio
now is the berlin based british political blogger john works good morning to you john good morning what's your view on the threat from berlin to boycott the summit on sunday i don't want to think this is noise i still think there will be a summit on sunday i think you'll solve those remaining issues with regard to gibraltar and also with regard to rome a distant little dispute of his about fishing policy and ultimately that summit will probably take place the problem ultimately with this deal of teresa mayes is in london it's not in brussels ok but there are big issues holding this up you mentioned gibraltar it's also the irish border remains a real point of debt right so the gibraltar issue essentially the way of solving that one would essentially kind of cop out and say ok we're going to we'll do that in the future and i think spain and the u.k. could probably live with us as a solution the northern ireland border issue is. really solved the idea is that you keep brits and within a circle customs union with the european union as
a way of managing to avoid a hard border in ireland but some hardliners in london. live with that so ultimately they're all solutions to all of those different problems in the brussels side to reason make a negotiator and the problem is going to be when she brings up back to her own party fights in the house of commons in london will they accept that ok we'll live accept it and they need to do so before christmas that's the time line that's when theresa may needs to push that through will she get the skeptics in her own party on board it's highly unlikely at the moment it looks like there are more than eighty members of her own conservative party in the house of commons who are opposed to such a deal they are a group of brakes hard line is. it want to just leave and leave as quickly as possible that at any price and then there are the pragmatists to see that actually written leaving is still economically questionable and they they they see that reason is taking britain too far away from the european union says he's at times equally on from the bricks side i'm from the pragmatist side so i think the chances for getting
a need deal through the house of commons are slim to none and some britons going to be facing a kind of internal political crisis in the middle of december ok britain is facing an internal crisis to cut through all of this and s.p.d. negotiator from way back can defend horgan's brought up the possibility of a bilateral deal cut through all of this just cut a bilateral deal between the e.u. and britain and the problems there to be e.u. is not so simple right that the e.u. struck a deal with canada for its trade relationship it took more than seven years to negotiate we've got seventeen weeks to manage to sort it out between britain and the european union time is incredibly short and all of these things a very very difficult and very complicated negotiate massive complexities in the in supply chains for the auto industry for fishing rights for how to supply drugs that are manufactured in of the european countries into the british market so it sounds like why not just try to manage to strike a deal well we've been trying for two and a half years and we still don't know what the deal looks like ok now we have until christmas and theresa may has told her own party look if we don't have this deal if
you don't approve it we're looking at a labor government new elections a complete collapse of the current conservative government which has a thin majority anyway right so that's the threat that she's that she's making to her and conservative members of parliament but to me because the alternative is worse now there is another alternative that is a second breaks that referendum that perhaps the conservative party might be more likely to to go for than than than risk another election so that it's not out of the question that's definitely on the agenda in the coming ok briefly if you look at that that's not realistic the second round referendum are we looking at a hard briefly where we're looking at one hundred bricks that went north looking at these of bricks it were. to deal a so-called crash out that is economic base or damaging but i think that both britain and the e.u. will pull themselves back from the brink of that there will be all use some sort of deal or a delay those are the most likely outcomes but it's going to be a very rocky road until we know the extent on so you know to keep an eye on it the next six weeks we will look forward to talking about this rocky road in the future
