this is news live from berlin tonight one blow after another for britain's prime minister parliament passing legislation that would make a no deal breaks it illegal to prime minister boris johnson coming out fighting but lawmakers have approved a bill that also delayed when the u.k. will leave the european union johnson says all of this will prevent him from
10:01 pm
threatening a new deal where it sits in use negotiations with the european union also coming up hong kong's controversial extradition bill is no more than a televised address to the chief executive kerry lamp so that she is withdrawing the bill which in spork months of violent protests in the territory but will her concession will be enough to appease the demonstrators and the scale of the disaster caused by hurricane dorian in the bahamas is beginning to emerge tens of thousands of homes have been destroyed huge numbers of people are now without food . to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and all around the world well the question tonight how long can a prime minister take the punches tonight in london the new prime minister boris johnson
10:02 pm
he has suffered yet another defeat in his battle for brags that lawmakers have passed a bill aimed at stopping a new deal brights it on the 31st of all. tobar and delaying the departure date johnson believes that the bill times his hands in his because she is with the european union so he is seeking a snap general election for october 15th in hopes that it will deliver a majority so that he can then fulfill his promise of leaving the european union with or without a deal at the end of october. or the proposed law now goes to the house of lords for consideration johnson he has slammed what's going on take a listen it is completely impossible for government to function if the house of commons refuses to cost anything but the government the price sounds in my view i do view this government there must now be an election on tuesday the 15th of october. and i might be right all of
10:03 pm
a gentleman to respond to decide which of us guus as prime minister that crucial council on thursday the 17th of october i think it's very sound good in piece of a kid like this but if if i'm still prime and i do i think it's a great dereliction of their democratic duty to speak but if i'm still prime minister off to tuesday the 15th of october then we will leave on the 31st of october when i hired a much better deal our let's take a story now to london our correspondent barbara faisal she is on the story for us tonight i get the need to you barbara so where do we go from now the house of commons has said yes to stopping preventing a new deal departure from the european union what happens next. the house of commons has really given it its best efforts in our ditches sort of save the country as this side of the house behind us says save the country from in
10:04 pm
this odd only charge for exit at the end all fucked over something that was damaged . britain's economy and would damage its standing in europe so they have done their part now the bill goes to the house of lords where funny scenes were seen earlier this evening because some of the honorable ladies and gentlemen there are right sleeping bags it is going to be a whole long slog to push this bill through in the opera chambre because of course divil again be ample resistance from the side of the turns of boris johnson so that is what we'll have now then the queen has to give her official assent and basically via a monday this law could come into force ok so we've got less than a week for all the bad to happen that's one thing that's going on the other that we heard from on the westminster is that the prime minister wants early elections on
10:05 pm
october 15th how likely is it that he's going to get parliament to say yes to them . if boris came out after this 2nd defeat in 2 days if we sort of lump them together it kicking and screaming and he was really in a relatively bad mood really visibly and said i will not do this under no circumstances will i condone this and then he said ok i don't want to lections the country doesn't want elections but we need elections because only the people can decide who is going to sort of take them out of the european union it's up to them to design and so now he's trying to push these selections through in a matter of minutes now we're going to see another vote on the selections and he's going to lose yet another vote that one because he needs a 2 thirds majority and he doesn't even have a simple majority so he is heading for another defeat and then he will have to
10:06 pm
regroup and find different means of forcing the selection is probably not going to be that easy. because the opposition said we're not playing your game we're not stepping into your traps and you're just trying to circumvent this deal that takes no this bill that takes no deal directs it off the table and so the 2 sides are still sort of engaged in warfare and waiting for a mistake the other one might make but. barbara if things go as you're just describing it if the house of lords and the queen say yes to this legislation then there will be no deal breaker and there will be no early elections so this is a huge defeat for the prime minister i mean what recourse does boris johnson have after tonight and next week. i mean it's not quite clear whether boris johnson will sort of purchase this law whether he will honor it he has in
10:07 pm
sydney age in this speech just a little while ago in parliament here and some of his supporters have done that that he might simply ignore it's something that was quite i've heard of it in britain in the pos because people used to relish this play to the rules about boris johnson is throwing everything over and really smashing the old system of rules and traditions here and so if he doesn't do that he's simply been asked for money then of course if haldeman can go to court but how can you force a prime minister to do something it's not that easy the other thing about the elections is he has another possibility to force that there is a different sort of procedure he needs a simple majority for that he will have to come back monday and try again whether the opposition will help him out but nothing is for certain and nothing is for certain and breaks it britain that is for sure barbara based on the story for us tonight in london barbara as always thank you. she is in
10:08 pm
brussels earlier i asked her how widely it is that the european union will see yes to get another extension to britain's departure. should it get to that point where an extension is requested you know you would have to get the majority of the other 27 e.u. leaders to say that they'll grants that and i would have thought that that they would be fairly open to such a suggestion because of course they would like nothing better than for bret's it to be reversed for there to be enough time that perhaps a 2nd vote could be taken that somehow this whole thing could be left behind like a bad dream but the finish prime minister who is currently the president of the european union was speaking to the finnish parliament earlier today and he told them that he didn't think people were really that interested in granting him an extension looking at the chaos that's going on saying that the u.k. has not come with any new proposals on how they would get
10:09 pm
a deal to get out unprecedented more orderly way he said why would we want to extend this any further so perhaps they really won't be lining up behind a request for an extension yeah and we still don't know what if anything boards johnson would have to present to the european union today. chief breaks that negotiated michel barnier i mean he said that johnson's on void david frost had promised and failed again to deliver any concrete proposals so i mean i'm wondering what what's the mood in brussels with that situation. well michel bonnie says it's in a state of paralysis because the e.u. has said this and you and i brenda talked about this so many times we can replay it the e.u. is waiting for the u.k. to come with some kind of alternative proposals to the withdrawal agreement that was agreed last year and so far that hasn't happened in fact the british government asked for the pace of talks to pick up to start meeting twice a week instead of once a week and the e.u.
10:10 pm
said ok fire where he you know we're all ears today michel barnier said you know what i didn't hear anything new from david frost nothing is moving forward coming from the british side and and having watch what's going on there right now i guess it's not surprising that any clear path forward has not emerged you know you know confusion and paralysis as you said 3 shots in brussels as always terry thank you and here's some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world italy's prime minister due sepic on has announced a new cabinet to lead a populist and center left coalition including 5 store movement leader the we demaio as the country's foreign minister for right leader tell us how the need has been replaced as interior minister by the technocrat young a lot more gays. security has been stepped up in south africa and nigeria after attacks on foreign owned businesses in johannesburg and reprisals carried out against south african stores in nigeria and cities with diplomatic tensions

10:14 pm
joins me now here at the big table she's been following events in hong kong forces good to see you wondering was this do you think the decision of kerry lamb to withdraw this bill or do you think she was ordered to go. or that she had the blessings from beijing to do this i'm sure this is of this is that they have been think very long but the final approval of cos it came from beijing of course they are there to make the announcement makes you look like a puppet which is what the demonstrators that claim to write exactly speaking of demonstrators the prominent pro-democracy activists joshua want he sent an open letter to the german chancellor angela merkel today asking her for help and this is what he wrote. you have 1st hand experience of the terrorise of a dictatorial government we hope that you will express your concern about our catastrophic situation and that you will convey our demands to the chinese
