12:02 pm
rejected a number of alternatives to prime minister theresa. may is unpopular with charles he'll parliament to set to vote on another option yet again tomorrow but the e.u. says that it is now looking increasingly likely that britain will leave the e.u. without a deal in less than two weeks unless it drastically changes course no use of the us through the news having it is. a good day for proposals all turned down but some of the so-called indicative though let's work close the one put forward by conservative m.p. kenneth clarke who called for a withdrawal deal that would include a permanent customs union with the e.u. it failed by a razor thin three votes. a proposal from an opposition labor m.p. called for a public vote meaning another referendum to approve may's bragg's
12:03 pm
a deal before parliament signs off that was also narrowly voted down with minutes. and then it was tory m.p. nick bowles turn his plan a soft gregg said that would keep britain in the e.u. single market and for europe he also didn't muster a majority after which a did ject at bowls threw in the towel to cover his i accept i have fire. i have no chiefly because my coffee refuses to compromise. i regret saffold through ignoring that i can no longer sit for this cause. they don't follow. the old gentleman. but parliament isn't giving up another series of indicative votes could loom as early as wednesday and then maybe
12:04 pm
another vote on teresa mayes bragg's a deal which parliament has rejected three times already. but time is short in brussels the head of the european parliament's briggs it committee gave a whole start tweeted that monday's votes left a hard brigs that nearly inevitable he warned that the u.k. has one last chance to break the deadlock or face the abyss. and responding to last night's events in the house of commons the use chief brings a negotiator michele buying a spoke this morning in brussels this is what he had to say new deal with new group design or into the. mooted was never my desired intent to annoy you but you can see superman is no prepared. becomes the to do more ninety. let's get the latest now from mattis who has the view from
12:05 pm
brussels charlotte potts is standing by for us in london and georg i'd like to begin with you and ask you about what we've just heard barnyard say that a no deal is more likely anything from the perspective of the e.u. that they can still do to try and avoid that and i'm afraid the u.s. is running out a little bit of creativity here what else they could put on the table that would be acceptable for the u.k. having said that bun you said today he's hurt the junco to get ahead of the european commission is running out of patients and he said well i have a little more patient and so he tried to send a rather comforting message to the u.s. to the u.k. parliament saying look what any indicative options you've been voting for so a customs union or a customs union and the internal market all of that we can put into the treaties and we can make that work as long as you respect our red lines meantime charlotte in london we know that the british prime minister theresa may is currently meeting
12:06 pm
with her cabinet and what is being called a showdown and what do we know so far about that meeting. well this meeting is all about finding a strategy forward on how to move forward in the process because there is a clear political impasse at the moment there will be talks of a general election which the conservatives wouldn't like to see because at the moment the opposition labor party is polling high and they might come out successful in a general election and would pose then the new government but there's also talks about where to move in the brics a process hot a. hot approach that theresa may has been pursuing is that the right course still to go or is it better to move to a softer brics that there are those in her cabinet that are pushing her towards no deal option they say it's better to leave on april twelfth was no deal than not leaving it at all or asking for it in an extension and theresa may in the meantime
12:07 pm
she seems determined that she wants to put her deal in front of parliament for a fourth time she thinks that she is going to get a majority so it's going to be very interesting to see what comes out of that cabinet i mean i'm getting today and amid all of that indecision charlotte i mean the fact of the matter that the no deal option is indeed one which we could see is britain preparing for the. well here people are saying it's becoming more and more likely that we are going to see no deal bricks it and the cabinet secretary says the head of the civil service has issued a letter to the government warning that the u.k. could be hit by a recession for example that food prices would rise and he was even saying that the police could struggle to keep people safe so a lot of warnings and basically it comes down to the u.k. has not been preparing well for a chaotic no deal breaks it because so far it has just been a negotiating position but now it could become reality and as things stand right
12:08 pm
now georg i mean we know that the current line is april twelfth which was basically set so that britain would not have to take part in the european parliament elections at the end of may how likely is it that we see brussels stick with this deadline or do you see some signs that there might be flexibility here. the now the deadline of the twelfth of april is a deadline when by british law the u.k. has to decide when they want whether they want to participate in the european elections or not so whether there is flexibility on that date is a british decision then and i could see from the perspective of the european union there will be flexibility until the last minute because the european union is very keen to avoid an accidental breck's it oppresses that is cause not because there's a majority for heartbreaks it but because the tactics in the house of commons is in
12:09 pm
the british parliament are such that they navigated themselves into a corner where they could just fall over the cliff without actually wanting that and so i think there is a good chance that there is flexibility for just yet another deadline or even the long deadline which the european commission has already put on the table but that would mean participate in the elections in any case bonnie today made clear that the u.k. has to provide a really strong argument because businesses have already made clear that they see they have zero interest in prolonging the insecurity that bracks it's under these circumstances puts the entire e.u. in and they have less than two weeks to come up with that argument. with a view from brussels charlotte parts joining us in london thank you so much to hear . well it's got a quick check now some other stories making news around the world germany has sent

12:13 pm
and wasted it was that into nothingness about and answering questions as well as the uncertainty of the thai politics i some say patience among thailand's younger people is wary in a situation that can jurors up sinister memories this is the site of one of the darkest chapters in modern thai history some forty three years ago around one hundred students were shot and beaten to death on this very field at bangkok's thomas at university they were among the thousands who had taken to the streets to protest because they were unhappy with the direction in which the country was headed. a sentiment that's not at all unlike the one spreading among young people in thailand today. at this bar across town the patrons are trying to take things with a pinch of salt. when on election night the election commission said they couldn't continue to count the votes because they didn't have

12:15 pm
are women who joined islamic state many claimed that they were forced to do so and say that they carried out housekeeping duties rather than acts of terror according to the german government around fifty women with. german citizenship are either imprisoned or live in refugee camps in syria and iraq now local authorities want to get rid of them as quickly as possible but the german government is reluctant to take them back it says that it is difficult to determine if the women are in fact citizens or if they pose a security threat we met a german woman in syria a syrian refugee camp who is desperate to come back to germany here's her story. stranded in the middle of nowhere seventy four thousand people live in the al whole camp in northern syria it was made to hold only ten thousand the conditions are unacceptable especially for children most people want to leave as soon as possible
12:16 pm
they want to return to their former homes which they left years ago so they could live under the rule of the jihadist group islamic state out of conviction carelessness or compulsion. they now gergen studied psychology in berlin and married a turkish man during a trip to turkey he took her to syria where he joined us at least that is how the twenty three year old describes it. calls them as often terrible things happen there. they are women and children do not have any value. women are charitably of used and beaten by us mine. and my former husband died about two years ago. it happens he locked us up and abused us in horrible ways. i couldn't recognize myself one day in day out. talk and talk also.
12:17 pm
her son was born during the chaos of war the two of them suffered years of hardship and now she hopes she has survived the worst and things will get better. shop i inspire you i have a two year old son but the poor boy has a right to a safe life. thankfully we could flee from those i as terrorists. we were just trashed their. women and children are worth nothing to them. it's horrible what i asked in the name of islam. i'm happy that i can return to my beloved homeland times germany. and. the kurdish authorities would like to get rid of foreigners like zainab as quickly as possible but hardly any country wants them back the local authorities are
12:18 pm
overburdened with investigating securing evidence clarifying guilt an international court is now supposed to solve the issue but the west is treating this initiative with great caution. presence of thousands of fighters and their families is a major problem for the autonomy authorities in northeastern syria. we do not have the possibility of bringing them to justice here if they have committed crimes against syrians or iraqis now they spend their days waiting to go back home but their fate remains uncertain as long as they are not welcome in their former home. and with me now is mathias one investigative reporter who has been following this story for us welcome to the program you know the woman who we saw in that report and many others like her are they they claim that they are victims of the so-called islamic state and not willing supporters doesn't seem believable. well it's very difficult to judge that from just watching the video. to me personally it's
12:19 pm
always this woman. from the islamic state and version of islam does seem genuine and we have to be in mind that not very many women in that camp the whole distance themselves from the islamic state in that way a lot of those women still cling very much to the to the jihad. of the islamic state and do not show any kind of remorse and but nevertheless i think when dealing with these people and when debating whether or not to take them back it shouldn't really matter what they have done or what they haven't done but germinal sorties. france belgium or russia or any other countries that has fighters they do have a duty to take those people back because kurdish authorities
12:20 pm
a city overwhelmed was dealing with those people and i mean this woman in particular when trolls an entire case she is indeed a german citizen how likely is it that she will be able to return to berlin which is her home city because i mean as we've heard there there is this reluctance to take individual such as herself back very difficult to say. german authorities are basically dragging their feet they are hiding behind procedural arguments but basically says well be don't have any diplomatic relations with moscow so we can't work that haven't you but on the other hand you also don't recognize the authority in all seriousness so officially we don't have any contact and since we don't have any contact there's nothing we can do and. i truly believe that because we know that german secret services are working in that area
12:21 pm
and i think that german also routines would be valid boys to assist kodesh authorities in interrogating these people in securing evidence and securing forensics so that they can be brought to be brought to trial it would mean time can you tell us a little bit more about the conditions of the camps and specially for women and children well as the conditions of your camp hold was built originally to hold themselves and people but the number of people holding the camp has exploded nobody had expected that many people to come out of that last pocket of territory which was very small just. four square kilometers and now it's holding seventy four thousand people it's basically basically lex everything. water tends to. phone hi debbie a reporter thank you. you're watching news still to come
