8:05 pm
mortgages and so high that people can't get them. and even those being withdrawn from mortgage companies, borrowing has gone up for the government except to excess. there's been a disaster. so they're me seeing you turn off to you turn off to you turn, culminating in an absolutely shocking day. yesterday the home secretary resigning over. she sat watching, not completely sure, and then this fiasco in the house of commons with this vote, an absolute chaos breaking out. so she brought it on herself. however, i didn't think anybody expected her to go so quickly and that it would be over fine to day and that will be it, she resign. now the times is reporting that boris johnston is said to make a comeback. and everybody's freaked vans. i mean, really? yeah, bars, johnson, the former prime minister, the prime minister who lives trust took over from you, had to quit because of scandals in downing street over parties during lockdown. yet,

8:07 pm
that number of m. p 's backing him. when so many said, it's time for you to go, boris. we don't know that. and he said he doesn't know that they need a unifying candidate. they need somebody who in by next friday will be the leader of their party and the next prime minister calls for a new fresh general elections getting louder and louder, turned the toys for their briefs. the tories do not want a general election. why? because they are polling so badly and it will absolutely annihilate their party. they are doing everything to say, we don't need bomb, we still go to majority in parliament. however, cause our growing and i'm certainly the labor party will do everything they can to push for general election. but at the moment it doesn't look like they will have to be one. obviously, this is bush's politics. anything can change, but that next leader that next prime minister, whoever he or she is, has got to somehow unify the party and try to persuade the british public that the

8:10 pm
villages like these in the half heed region have been thrust into a pre industrial era with no modern comforts authorities. the trying to reassure people that electricity will be restored soon, and that repairs to water and gas infrastructure will come next. that with the war and with absolutely no certainty. people like art him and his grandmother can only prepare for what will likely be a very harsh ukrainian winter time not to have looked at some of the other stories making headlines around the world. these european government says it will take part and peace talks on the 2 year old conflict in the northern tic ry region. next week . the negotiations with to grab people's liberation front and south africa due to take place after a previous attempt failed. earlier this month we're going further fighting a new law tackling the legacy of spain's fascist dictatorship, has entered into force. it overturns all convictions for political origin,

8:12 pm
leaders discussing the current energy crisis. and this discussion was interrupted, so they were able to listen to the ukraine in president zalinski. of course, the topic of energy is also on his mind with russia increasingly attacking ukrainian energy infrastructure. and now the leaders are discussing, again, is soaring energy prices and we are hearing that this sir. discussion is not bringing them at the moment, at least any closer to our solution. so we are hearing that there could be even a change of the whole summit choreography with maybe some other issues being now put forward to be discussed and the energy being pushed to morrow. that is, of course, all speculation. but maybe what's also important to note is that the french president melma call a match today with the german chancellor here on the sun, sidelines of the summit, france and germany are always being considered and driving due to
8:13 pm
find compromise consensus. but at the moment, at least when it comes to the energy issue, they are in opposing camps. now with all this strive for you, have been describing all the leaders likely to find common ground and how to handle this quite well, i think when it comes to some proposals put forward by the european commission, for instance, more corporation on enjoined gas purchases. data could be something that the leaders can agree on, but when we come, when it comes to this, a topic offer a price caps on a gas employ. this is very controversial with the majority of member states pushing for such price caps and with germany and some other saying, no, this is not to the silver bullet to tackle the crisis. and actually germany has been under a lot of criticism here for a day or stands on that matter with
