was some good news on thursday the european parliament voted to grant visa free travel to u.k. citizens after breaks it really for holiday makers but in westminster no signs of a breakthrough in the brics it deadlock may is meeting opposition leader jeremy corbyn for more talks after wednesday's meeting failed to yield results. we had a discussion. as much as i expect but we are continuing to have some discussions was useful but inconclusive. time is not on their side the u.k. is due to leave the european union in just eight days and the bloc isn't budging on the timeframe. it's. april twelfth as however the ultimate possible deadline for approval. if the house of commons does not express itself by this date no further short extension will be possible. for
4:04 pm
work on the deal and i think that a no deal at midnight on the twelfth of april it's now one more and more likely scenario. that something many parliamentarians want to avoid on thursday the highs of lords debating legislation to force to reason may to seek a delay but use as a longer extension will only be granted if the u.k. puts forward a concrete plan and it's by no means guaranteed m.p.'s will unite behind any compromise may manages to broker. well as we mentioned german chancellor angela merkel is in dublin today to discuss. the uncertainties surrounding brags that the irish border separates northern ireland which is part of britain from the republic of ireland which will remain a member of the european union after brags that at the moment there's no physical border between the two the absence of a hard border is a central part of the peace agreement between ireland and northern ireland but it's
4:05 pm
unclear how border complexities can be avoided after bragg's it ahead of the trip merkel addressed the risk of violence if a hard border results from britain's divorce from that you. we often say in europe this a question of war and peace and we can see that it's fundamentally a question of violence or nonviolence of course we want to play our part and so i will look closely at the situation regarding the irish border and ways to find solutions to prevent heartbreaks it know that sent these solutions must ultimately come from london. we can see that intense efforts are being made but also that there are clearly very different competing visions i hope that the discussions led by theresa many are successful. let's cross over now to london where charlotte potts is standing by so charlotte these talks between theresa may and
4:06 pm
labor is jeremy corbin are still continuing but he's apparently under pressure from his own party not to accept her deal what do you anticipate is going to come out of those talks. well the negotiating teams are meeting as we speak and they are clearly trying to find some common ground and there is some common ground both parties in general want to leave the european union both parties want to stop the single market stop the free movement of people of course jeremy cole being pushing for a soft of bricks and maybe to remain in a customs union and that is also what he's under pressure from his own party about what they are pushing him towards a soft of bricks and maybe possibly towards a second referendum some in the in the labor party saying that that he's been lured into a trap that theresa may want to put blame off him for not ending the brics a deadlock if these talk of talks are not successful and also theresa may is under
4:07 pm
intense pressure from her party to have ministers stepping down yesterday because they said she is collaborating with the enemy with a marxist an anti-semite. like called and the rhetoric really heating up here so it's very questionable if these two have always catered to policy politics actually going to put country first now and come to a successful conclusion on this whether they are going to budge on red lines that they have drawn out before so there's very little hope here that these talks are going to be successful. for charlotte this was a rather surprising change of tactic for theresa may to now try and seek some sort of agreement with the opposition and as you mentioned a number of ministers who have resigned over this but is that perhaps really her only chance for breaking the braggs a deadlock i mean if her own party is not behind her could it be that she needs
4:08 pm
those votes from the opposition to get her deal through. you're absolutely right i mean she recently has tried three times to bring her deals through she has offered her resignation if there was a draw agreement. parliament and not even in that case have the hardline as most of them have not supported her and not just keeping the line that the withdrawal agreement is a bad deal so she has really tried hard now she has to reach out to labor and at the moment this come looking for a compromise looking for unity with labor to get the deal pos is really the only option. well charlotte i think most have agreed that a no deal bragg's it is definitely going to be detrimental both for the u.k. and also for the e.u. so are we really looking as a long delay of bragg's it and participation in e.u. parliamentary elections at the end of may the only possible scenario.
4:09 pm
yes it could very well be so paul and yesterday he passed a law that would force to resign me to go to brussels and ask for an extension and she the length of this extension is actually up to her she has said she wants a short extension but the european union said they are only going to grant that if some kind of withdrawal agreement is pos and it doesn't look likely so the european union is most likely going to offer a long extension and that would mean that the u.k. would have to put legislation in place to hold those european elections and if that was to happen then we would probably see a very much a protest vote like a mini referendum in these european elections with those that want to leave pushing and voting for for hard line to join the european union as i mean and for those that want to remain voting for those parties that want to remain in the european union all along shall have pause for porting from london we thank you for that

4:13 pm
a field outside the theo capital a disaster that killed all one hundred fifty seven people on board. a preliminary report now rules out human error as the cause of the tragedy suggesting the crew did everything in their power to avoid the crash. the crew perform it all the procedures. repeatedly provided by the manufacturer but was not able to control. the boeing seven three seven max eight reportedly experienced erratic climbs and descents shortly after takeoff a situation similar to the one preceding the crash of lion air flight six one zero in october which killed one hundred eighty nine people. very clear to me in the ways we. are today because. number one it's just a plane more than proud to be on the other hand the flight the duration of the
4:14 pm
flights or source or most of it up on a flight was six months six minutes very short flight. scrutiny is centered on an anti stall system that has repeatedly given pilots problems it's designed to automatically lower the aircraft's nose if it detects a stall or loss of airspeed anxious to wind back public trust in its products boeing announced last week it had reprogrammed the software on the seven three seven max to stop the anti stall system from triggering but the us federal aviation administration advised boeing to keep working on the proposed fix before submitting the system for a view. with this fastest selling plane grounded boeing isn't only facing increasing reputational issues analysts say a lengthy delay could cut the company's revenues by billions. kristof comber from d.w. business is following the story and joins me now for more in the studio so christophe kind of a damning report isn't it so what does this initial report on the ethiopian airlines
4:15 pm
crash mean for boeing well there is certainly a bad aspect to it but also is somewhat a somewhat good aspect and i got to that in the second first about aspect certainly here is that this automated anti stall system to bradley is rely only on one sensor is not reliable and it also sheds light on boeing how it introduced the seven hundred seven max years to its customers essentially saying this is just a newer version of a long established plane when in fact it wasn't it was a brand new plane with a lot of changes done to it which pilots were not informed about because there's many people many posing while we need to training for this boeing could have offered training but often didn't because that would have meant extra cost to their customers something that boeing didn't want them to consider the somewhat somewhat good aspect here is that engineers at boeing now can almost entirely rule out that
4:16 pm
the cause of the second crash was a different one than the one in october which means they are most likely not forced to conduct another sorrow time consuming investigation on where this this fault might have been well this is of course you know horrible it's appalling you know so many people have lost their lives over this if it's just a yeah and you know perhaps the company should have been aware of this how if a very active to these findings there hasn't been much of a reaction so far as that is a sensitive issue to boeing they don't want to jump to conclusions once there is a say bigger picture public key published here so the company said it would study the report by the open authorities once it comes out which people expect will be on friday. all right so they're going to study the report but now they're really going to have to do something what would it take for boeing to be able to get its seven thirty seven max in the air again or is that already out of the question well it
4:17 pm
needs to get regulators stamp of approval that the seven thirty seven max sirius is a save aircraft and for that needs to get the changes to this automated feist's flight system certified now boeing said that on wednesday a they successfully conducted tests of this updated flight system the anti stall system now the federal aviation administration needs to certify this update however it might be more difficult to get the sums up here than one might think because the f.a.a. just said on wednesday it is forming an international team to not only review this automated anti stall system and the update for it but the safety of these seven thirty seven next year is a general and in this all sounds pretty damaging for boeing what is the impact of it is that the impact is huge so far i mean the more than three hundred seventy seven planes are grounded they're not generating any revenues for the for the
4:18 pm
companies that own them now boeing is preparing for possible. claims of damages by by these companies that say all right we're not earning any money with your jets and this is your fault plus the seven thirty seven max is boeing's top selling aircraft there are about five thousand have been ordered by by companies and they're really banking heavily on this jet now is more airlines and more customers should lose faith in this aircraft the damage would be even bigger all right christopher over many thanks indeed. now last september a member of the russian activist group pussy riot was rushed to a hospital in moscow after suddenly losing his sight is hearing and his ability to walk after a few days treasure there's a lot was airlifted to germany where doctors diagnosed what they described as a likely poisoning he's now back in moscow where he talked to our correspondent in

4:24 pm
he scored fourteen goals against dortmund and an unforgettable hat trick in last season's the classic car by and are just two points behind dortmund in the table at the moment so you'd think whomever wins on saturday would be confident about a title not if you live under half see you. there with the first day at the big step. but ones that will be not enough because we have a lot of games until until the end of this is on i uncertainty is in the title race but at least there's a level of certainty when it comes to live and offs here he just can't help himself it's in his d.n.a. to score goals i. are right and finally cruz cruz the staple north african dish made from durham weed is taking on a new role as a symbol of north african unity of neighboring states there have swallowed their
