relationship i recognize some european leaders are out at this moment but also some people back home in the u.k. will be right at this moment but the way i look at it is actually this is for us now to move on to the next stage to move on as i said i am full of optimism about the future of our country may now has to seek parliamentary approval at home which will be much more difficult amidst divisions even among her own party and e.u. leaders today made clear there will be no renegotiation of the agreement. this. is an accomplished diplomatic feat i want to emphasize that this is an extremely difficult situation a situation without any precedent because we haven't had it before the european country leaves the e.u. holds up this agreement not considers the interests of both sides and also looks into the future and also. for theresa may is the brics that drama continues in
7:04 pm
early december that's when the british parliament is expected to vote on the deal but even if it's ratified that's only the beginning of many months possibly years of negotiations on the future relationship between britain and the e.u. . so as we've heard it's a deal that's been pounded by politicians from both sides of parliament but what exactly is in this deal well they'll be a two year transition period to work out a future trade deal during that time britain will stay in the single market bound by rules and if you're wondering about the movement of persons well this is what is going to happen european citizens currently in the u.k. and brits now abroad will keep their rights to live work and study where they are the hardest not to crack well it's going to be vests the irish border question the hope is that a future trade deal will prevent the need for a hard border between island north and ireland but if no deal is reached the u.k.
7:05 pm
has agreed to stay in a customs agreement arrangement rather with it indefinitely until something can be agreed earlier we spoke to the correspondent and started by asking her about reactions from the u.k. to today's deal. well you haven't really seen champaign go. for a lot of people this is not a good deal we've had prominent city is people were really advocating for the u.k. to leave the we've heard them say for example dominant dominic robb who was the former breakfast secretary it's actually better stay for britain to stay in the e.u. because the deal was that bad so nobody really is very happy about the deal however for those who are fearing the so-called cliff edge that britain will crash out of the year without a deal there is a sense of relief for example a business organizations have said well this is a little bit more certainty and have welcomed this step however then again you have
7:06 pm

7:07 pm
crashing out and of having nothing nothing at all for those people for example who are advocating for a second referendum for a so-called people's vote on this deal she says of them well if you don't if you're not with me there is really a challenge that we are going to be at this cliff edge situation at the end of march next year and we don't have anything we don't have any security for business we don't have any security that all planes are going to continue flying that we have the meds in that we need the three that we need so this is definitely a big strong. and what if proposal gets voted down. well that's the big what happens then question because all bets are off we really don't know what's going to happen it's been speculated that reason may be might step down immediately because she is too closely associated with this deal however she might not and there might be a vote of no confidence against her from her own party all indeed there might be at
7:08 pm
