and speaking to lawmakers johnson urged them to pass so the country could move on let's take a listen people simply will not understand how politicians can say with one breath . they want. to avoid mildew. then with an express that they still want to live with a great deal is they're. trying. now is to try mr speaker to get. them to give you correspondent shallop parts is standing outside the house of parliament in london she joins me now charlotte bring us up to speed about what's happening in there right now. well the situation is extremely complex and fluid so please bear with me while i try to explain it we were expecting a decisive vote today on boris johnson steel and whether parliament would approve it finally or not now it looks like 1st and amendment is going to be tabled and
2:03 pm
that amendment would force boris johnson if parliament approves it would force boris johnson to ask the european union for an other extension for yet another extension on the force for for 3 months and he would have to do that tonight so it looks likely that this amendment will be voted through and that would of course take the pressure off that vote on the on boris johnson's deal. johnson has said if indeed he has to ask for an extension then he would conservatives to walk out of parliament and not participate in the vote on his deal so there wouldn't be a decision on that today and we would probably most likely next week see another vote on this deal that he has negotiated with the european union so possibly not as decisive today as he'd hoped now he has addressed the parliament so has opposition leader jeremy corbyn let's take

2:05 pm
ireland different from the rest of the united kingdom and would put a border in the irish sea so many different m.p.'s are against this deal for different kinds of reasons and i think this is what it all comes down to right and parliament has been divided on the issue of bracks it for 3 years now on how to leave on what kind of deal they want with the european union if they want to stay closer aligned rather have a hard break sit and this really mirrors again in the debate today that many parliamentarians just. very divided on the issue and at the same time as the m.p.'s are in parliament to beijing and voting today there's a huge demonstration underway in london people calling for a 2nd referendum can you tell us a bit more about that. well you see some of the protesters actually gathering behind me with the european flags there people have been arriving all morning from
