a german last year an attack that sparked riots in the city of catch. on brazil's. president. trucks his accusation of environmental activists behind the number of fires consuming his country. i'm from welcome to the program. british prime minister barak johnson has been in paris today for breakfast discussions with french president emmanuel macross both leaders said they believe in a way for the u.k. to leave the european union with a deal should be possible though a number of obstacles remain chief amongst them is the so-called irish back stop the current fallback plan to prevent the hardboard on the island mr johnson insists
7:02 pm
there can be no deal unless this is removed from the withdrawal agreement here is spelling out the u.k.'s position when you look at the border with northern ireland just repeating a point that bears repeating under no circumstances will the u.k. government be instituting imposing checks or controls of any kind at that border and we think i understand your desire to protect the integrity of the of the single market of course we understand that but we think that there are ways of protecting the integrity of the single market and allowing the u.k. to exit from the e.u. whole and entire and perfect order sean's behave in paris let's go to paris where we join max hoffman welcome max did we hear anything new from the new british prime minister today. the little bit that was new and it's been new actually for i believe since since berlin was the clip that you just played you all know that
7:03 pm
boris johnson the u.k. prime minister wants to get rid of the backstop but he 1st the really outlined what will happen if there is a no deal bragg's it saying that the u.k. will not enforce border controls right there and that's tricky for the european union because that means if they want that border there to preserve the integrity of the single market and again this is only case of a no deal breaks it then they will have to do this by themselves as johnson really keeps that promise that he made here and you know the history of the borders so that you could be held accountable for any violence to occur in the future that will be a difficult decision to make by the european union if it really comes to that ok so that sounds like the british prime minister sort of putting the ball in brussels coat what was president macro's message today. it was more of the same just like we heard from. the you know the contrary opinion here is to keep the
7:04 pm
backstop because he says is indispensable and i quote here to the integrity of the single market but again the problem here is that the alternative would be if there was no deal bragg's it to immediately have a hard border between northern island which is part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland which is part of the european union and i say theoretically you because in order to really have a hard border you need to enforce it so we're coming back to what i said earlier this is obviously a new bit of strategy of boris johnson who is clearly willing to play hardball but call seems to be willing to play hardball as well so this is really a high stakes game of poker right here and we'll have to see who blinks 1st if anyone really does blink. deadline if the end of october which is fast approaching that must mean fear is that these meetings today in paris and yesterday in a less about finding a workable deal and more about and boris johnson to blame the you when
7:05 pm
a disorderly brax it happens. i think you're exactly right there phil but the problem is it's not necessarily about finding a solution anymore although we'll have to wait and see they have about 30 days to work something out because as you know you need approval of the house of commons back in the u.k. you need approval of the european parliament but maybe it's already just about who is to blame at the end is that the e.u. is fault or is it the u.k.'s fault boris johnson really is a spin doctor we know that because he was a journalist in brussels in the ninety's and some of the older colleagues personally experience how he's able to spin a story and spin reality in the direction that he wants it to be so not all the cards on the table be really don't know where he's heading at the moment so that puts us in the position that we were before with theresa may but he added that little bit of strategy to it to put more pressure on the you regarding the border between northern ireland and ireland so how have these meetings today in paris or
7:06 pm
yesterday i think changed anything knox. it's just that we had little bits and pieces of information going forward it really hasn't changed the fundamentals the fundamentals are there was a withdrawal agreement a legally binding were withdrawal agreement some people also call it the divorce agreement between the u.k. and the european union and boris johnson wants to change it because the backstop is right in there and the european union does not want to change that they have repeatedly said so and the message coming from the new and i call him paris was the same as ever backstop indispensable we're not going to open up that withdrawal agreement so of both stay in that position then what happens next and that's where we get the added value from today boris johnson said we don't care we will not enforce that border it's up to the e.u. so like i said pressure might have shifted a little bit towards the european union at a 1000000000 trysting to see how they react but really if there is any change it'll
