of october 4th 6. it was boris johnson's 1st parliamentary vote as british prime minister and he lost it all the good stuff norris was to the right story 128 the news to the left 301 so the army's have it the guys have it all not going to johnson was healed by a huge rebellion among his own conservative m.p.'s 21 of them joined the opposition to seize the bricks agenda of costing johnson he's working majority they're trying to pass a law that would delay the u.k.'s exit from the e.u. and prevent a noise deal breaks it johnson insists a deal or no deal grex it will happen on october the 31st he says he has no option now but to call for an early general election i was bored to action pretty and please go back to more or to stop negotiating and to compel i'm not the point
7:03 am
was delayed to brit's it potentially for you know that would be the only way to resolve this who johnson could struggle to get a 2 thirds majority needed to approve an early poll opposition leader jeremy coburn has long called for elections but now says he wants a great of them until the end he knowing deal bill passes a general election there is no consent in this house to leave the european union without a deal i know a majority for no deal in the country i on wednesday the crossed party alliance will introduce their bill to july breaks it with october 31 just over 8 weeks away all the turmoil and political maneuvering is only stocking more confusion about how and when breaks it will happen i did barbara they all joins me now from london
7:04 am
so barbara walk us through this showdown what happens now what are the possible outcomes. now the 1st thing we saw earlier tonight was of course that boris johnson suffered a devastating defeat this was his 1st a vote in parliament and he lost that that is something that historians here's a look at in fact get into recent decades as never have before and also the next steps are not quite clear because boris johnson will now be calling elections because he said after this defeat he can carry on like this becomes he doesn't have a majority in parliament anymore because he used to occasionally of this vote against the government against his person a true throw out the 24 chary rebels immediately after the vote so he now is minus 21 parliamentarians so the only route left for him now is to
7:05 am
call elections however on tuesday the opposition will come up and sort of push this loss through their wills tied his hands voids against a hard core and no deal for exit that is one aspect the other aspect is the new elections when will boris johnson go to parliament was them will he do it tomorrow will he do it the day after because he needs a 2 thirds majority in parliament to sort of call the elections and as we see now and as it stands he doesn't have that so it's a conundrum wherever you look somehow it seems there is an impossibility enviros johnson looks like the big loser of today that doesn't have to stay that way he is a tricky manager of political maneuvers but at the moment somehow his stars don't shine very brightly in london so it's very unclear what exactly is going to happen
7:06 am
but both sides are facing a lot of very risky path lay out some of those risks each side face. it's risky for both of course for a chance and i said already that she lost one vote she might be losing another vote if he called early elections now because the opposition labor position the labor party has said we're not going to do it not before the anti i know do you practice it has come into legal force that is the one aspect so what will you do in this position nobody knows yet it's quite clear on the other hand for the opposition the point is they will manage to push those laws through they move managed to tie boris johnson hence formally but will be obeyed this law that is also quite unclear because he made completely contradictory x x gave completely contradictory explanations during the course of the debates example it again this might be
7:07 am
a win for the opposition that in the end turns out to be quite hollow and chaos reigns in british politics as we see it nobody really knows the way forward everybody is sort of maneuvering in trying to get one over the other side and there is no telling who will be the ultimate winner and loser after these me to my right barbara fazel thanks very much for keeping us up to date in london there are some other stories making news around the world. in haiti opposition protesters have ransacked parliamentary offices to impede a session with lawmakers it comes amid widespread political and economic unrest in the country chronic fuel shortages and worsening poverty have been stoking months of anti-government protests. and protesters in tunisia have demanded the release of a media mogul and presidential candidate. he was arrested in august on money laundering charges not long after announcing his candidacy on tuesday
7:08 am

7:11 am
meteorologist matthew joins me now from washington welcome matthew so the hurricane lingered in especially a long time over the bahamas is is that kind of thing unusual. you know something i have not seen during my career before to see a category 5 hurricane linger that long sure we get storm strong from time to time but this storm moved at less than 2 kilometers per hour for 24 hours and in the process scour the ground with winds in excess of 250 kilometers per hour. that does sound like quite a storm so with that in mind where is this storm expected to head now what's the latest track so the storm is since weakened a little bit down to a category 2 right now but it is still threatened as still forecast to threaten the eastern part of florida as a rise of the coast about 50 to 70 kilometers offshore so over the next 2 days it'll parallel the florida peninsula eventually making a run toward the carolinas towards georgia maybe skirting with some damaging winds close to 100 kilometers per hour coastal flooding about one meter to 2 meter storm
7:12 am
surge and some very heavy rainfall close about 15 centimeters in a few spots and there's even a chance the carolinas the outer banks could see some isolated tornado activity thanks to the strong winds in the upper atmosphere associated with the hurricane after that should pass harmlessly out to sea and be pretty much a fish storm after that so you just mentioned it's been downgraded to a category 2 that might strike many people are saying it's not so much of a problem anymore could you lay out what's what are some of the dangers that this storm still poses for people on the atlantic coast so one thing we have to remember when a hurricane starts to weaken so to speak is that it's not really weakening per se in terms of the size of the storm in fact when hurricanes what are called spin down even though their core of strong winds isn't quite as strong the core actually expands so now we're seeing this wind field broaden anough to encompass the coast whereas before it wouldn't do that so more areas along the media coast on in the united states are at risk for that wind and the wind isn't even all that bad when you compare to the coastal flooding there are
7:13 am
a lot of areas in florida and the carolinas this it only perhaps half a meter to a meter above sea level and we're talking a one to 2 meter storm surge that could put some coastal areas under water during the high tides in the next few days. and this hurricane has been said have been one of the most powerful on record what does it tell us about this year's atlantic hurricane season so linac arcane season right now is actually been off to a slow start prior to dorian we're only in the d.'s in terms of the names which are alphabetical and normally would be pretty much stores like f g h right now so it was a slow start that said we're moving towards a climatological peak of hurricane season when the waters of the warmest the hurricanes are really getting going and i think these stronger storms could be a trend alluding to a future more peppered with these severe storms thanks to climate change. all right matthew in washington d.c. thank you very much for your insights thank you.
