6:01 pm
fire is this chairman carl is gone as after his shock arrest earlier this week over allegations of financial misconduct what's next for the japanese carmaker and its alliance with france's or no. heart thank you so much for your company everyone u.k. prime minister to resign may has been facing heavy opposition in parliament all this after delivering a statement on the draft deal agreed with the european union on the two sides relationship after the u.k. leaves the bloc while a speaking in the house of commons a short time ago me said it was a good deal both for britain and for the european union but opposition labor leader jeremy corbyn tore into the deal saying nothing had been agreed. and described it
6:02 pm
as a quote blind fold brags that your leaders are hoping to sign off on both the declaration and on the bridges the treaty itself at a summit in brussels this sunday. all right lots to unpack to be correspond bigger mass is standing by for us in london and our brussels bird chief max hoffman is at the e.u. h.q. before we start off our conversation let's take a quick listen to what theresa may said in parliament moments ago. this is because the draft text that we have agreed with the commission is a good deal for our country and for our partners in the e.u. it honors the. owners the coaches the british people by taking back control of our borders all the rules and all money while protecting jobs security and the integrity of our precious united kingdom. free movement once and for all instead we will introduce a new skills based immigration system based not on the country people come from but
6:03 pm
on what they can contribute to the u.k. . it is the jurisdiction of the european court of justice in the u.k. . we will make our own rules in our own parliaments here in westminster and in edinburgh cardiff and belfast and they will be adjudicated on by u.k. courts and it means an end to sending vast sums of money to the e.u. all right theresa may there making her pitch just moments ago in the house of commons barrie want to go to you first did she make a convincing case will she get this agreement through the house of commons and over the finish line. well what certainly shone through for me was a determination to deliver it she said i'm determined to deliver breck said this is how she and it has statement and she definitely tried to convince mostly i think the brics it is in their own party she stressed that the u.k. was now an independent state an independent coastal state even as she said and she
6:04 pm
she emphasized that all the the will of the people will from have point of view will be pulled through and breck's it will happen and that the u.k. will be able to stand on its own two feet and definitely mostly i think she spoke to the brics it is her own party who are very very critical of this deal this much we know all right now we also of course are heard from the opposition leader mr jeremy corbin let's take a listen to what he said and then i'll toss it to you max the prime minister said nothing is agreed until everything is agreed it's clear from this document that he did nothing is agreed to this is the blindfold bricks that we all see a huge leap in the dark all right max want to go over to you a leap in the dark if the e.u. does sign off on the brakes a deal then what. well what he was talking about here was not the braggs the deal he was talking about the political agreement so was supposed to outline the nature
6:05 pm
of the future relationship between the u.k. and the u. and of course he's not wrong but there's no other way to do it because you can only really negotiate in earnest that future between the e.u. and the k. once the u.k. has left the european union and that will happen on the twenty ninth of march twenty nine thousand so what we have here with the political agreement is more or less a guideline this can be changed it can also fail that's why by i go by the way it was so important for the e.u. to have a backstop to avoid a hard border between northern ireland and ireland because of everything about the future relationship between the u.k. and that you had already been agreed on no you would not need a backstop so even if this was quite an impressive statement what he said there was clear you know has been clear for quite some time now rights and now theresa may also address the issue of brought her this is what she said last night i spoke to prime minister sanchez of spain we have been working constructively with the
6:06 pm
governments of spain and gibraltar in the negotiations on the withdrawal agreement and we want to continue in the future relationship but i was absolutely clear that you approach this british software will be protected. and that the future relationship we have three must work for the whole u.k. family gibraltar is part of the u.k. she says i'm going to put the same question to you both starting off with beer good she's sticking to her guns here. she's sticking to our guns when we got rolled out because the noise that i hear in westminster is that this is something that can be so thought i don't know whether mark says the same impression but it's not regarded from the u.k. cited these as a major point here it's really about the brics it isn't a reason made. to renegotiate the backs of that market access just explained and
6:07 pm
this is one of the crucial points which will make it difficult for the reason to get this over the finishing line when it's debate city and paul event in a few weeks time max now to you is spain going to buy this i'm not sure how this is going to be play out to be quite honest and none of our sources is either here in brussels because spain has backed itself against a wall or climb the tree or whatever you want to call it it is unclear how they're going to get down that tree what we do know is that the other members of the e.u. twenty seven club so the european union minus the united kingdom do not under any circumstances want to open up the withdrawal with dream again and that's exactly what spain once so although this topic really hasn't popped up much in the coming in that in the last years during the negotiations it's here now in full force and spain has even threatened not to sign the withdrawal agreement and of course what we're hearing from other countries is no why did the not come up with this earlier
6:08 pm
why do we have to do this now so it's putting a lot of pressure on the european union but still the sense here is that this will get solved somehow the questions this is how all right max often brussels bird chief i think you for your reporting and of course also bear good marks for us in london thank you so much. for the next stop we're going to shift our attention to yemen where peace talks between yemen's warring parties looks set to take place in sweden in early december that's according to the u.s. secretary of defense for the people of yemen the target just can't come soon enough aid agencies estimate that more than eighty thousand children may have died from extreme hunger in the past three years of yemen civil war and the u.n. says that half the country's population is now on the brink of famine. this is one year old new site when this footage was taken on the twenty third of october he's mother said he'd been diagnosed with money tradition twice in the last
