2:01 am
good morning this is not international live from russia nine am here in moscow now my name is kevin when he was here thirty minute live news roundup of the big news this morning again is it and the latest is the european union waking up to this is allowing britain's prime minister a new extension this time until october thirty first for a ten c. you summit held until the small hours of thursday morning the leaders came to an agreement in the end but issued a warning to to the u.k. not to misuse the time. flexible expect it. expected but that's still enough. to find that first four solution please do not waste this study i have to leave. my joke of the first
2:02 am
of. this so my guess would be the true reason if not the most social because if we have to leave to you know. i. will if break that wasn't already a horror show filled with gruesome ghouls and scary characters it does seem that the new deadline for article fifty p. breaks that deadline will be the thirty first of october how when this was hammered out at a deal into the well late evening in the early hours of thursday morning we understand this there was a an agreement to have a much longer extension being granted to the united kingdom however it was the french in a manual micron the were the ones saying that they wanted a should much shorter extension otherwise they wanted the u.k. to well make some pretty big concessions including giving up their seat on the
2:03 am
european commission while they remained a member state they were told by john claude younger the current european commission president that was definitely not going to happen what it means though is that the united kingdom will have to field candidates in the upcoming european elections the reason may arrived in brussels saying she wanted an extension only until june the thirtieth now it seems that with running on into october and then having to put forward candidates for the european elections there's a lot of people in our own party calling for her head but as leaders were leaving the summit everybody pretty much was saying this was the best deal possible the best compromise that could be come to know that the risks huge frustration for many people that i had to request this extension the u.k. should. i've left the e.u. by now and i sincerely regret the fact that i have not yet been able to persuade parliament to approve a deal which would allow the you occasionally in a smooth and orderly way but the choices we now face are stark and the time table
2:04 am
is clear sinks to this agreement we preserve the well functioning of the european union i see we fix the deal and all zero consequences before the first of november which will be zero rival of the new commission so for me such a good solution is still word got out of the invitation and silence mutely homes here in this is a. good. so with the new deadline set there's now a host of options still on the table for the divorce from the european union parliament could still adopt some agreement deal and leave the event any time or you can do the complete opposite and revoke article fifteen even cancel breaks and after all this six months could also be enough time for a general election or referendum on breaks it and the premises next move is to brief the house of commons thursday afternoon you can we pieced even waterless he believes this new delay is far from what the people in britain voted for this is
2:05 am
about the fundamental decisions of whether the people of our country should be asked to vote on something and our politicians take the exact opposite decision politicians over people not people over politicians i don't think it's what most people expected three years ago when they voted to leave and i think it's going to cause an awful lot of upset and anger and huge disappointment in the political process and our politicians are the key fundamentals of leaving the european union was that we would not be broken trolled by the european union laws and as a consequence we could even have our own laws which would divert your way from the european union a custom union doesn't do that secondly we'd be able to negotiate our own trade deals a custom union doesn't allow that so in all the key points that we argued that would in independent nation be like that canada or australia or new zealand or india or brazil or all these countries in the world we will not be like them we will
2:06 am
effectively be a state in the european union run by the european union but perhaps we just no representation at the table. he was vice president mike pence is called on the united nations to revoke the credentials of venezuela's ambassador the demand came at a heated security council meeting is seen as another show support in from washington by an opposition leader who declared himself an interim president of the south american country back in january. this body should revoke the credentials of venezuela's representative to the united nations with all due respect mr ambassador you shouldn't be here. you should return to venezuela. and tell nicolas maduro that his time is up. it's time for him to go. to feel that you have the power in your hands to expel your enemies from the united nations those that you do not like indicates to me that you don't understand the charter of the united nations and the purposes and principles of the united nations so stop interfering
2:07 am
in the affairs of other states you will only gain respect from that which was you but you don't like it when others interfere in your affairs no one likes that it. will be time impactful venezuelan president nicolas maduro still has power and still has control despite u.s. economic and diplomatic pressure to stay and russia's ambassador to the u.n. says events of the security council or another attempt by washington that regime change caleb maupin followed that session bike paths the u.s. vice president represented the usa and gave remarks harshly critical of the venezuelan government he told a heart wrenching story of an interaction he adds with a venezuelan father and his sons and i'll never forget when a father looked at me with his two young boys standing at his side and said how hard it was as a father to come home at the end of the day and say. we're not eating today.
2:08 am
and as he said it is two little boys looked of the. and nodded. to the you could you in the commuter we have already seen it you know the regions of the chilling stories about the suffering of people in iraq and syria and libya from witnesses are based in the west on the disaster that the real suffering began in those countries and still hasn't stopped do you want the same in venezuela russian ambassador on made the point that essentially the situation in venezuela can't simply be blamed on the government that interference by the united states and efforts by countries around the world to interfere in venezuela's affairs and create a crisis in the country had a lot to do with the current situation we would use it with one hand you are grabbing venezuela by the throat introducing new sanctions and destructions that prevent the country from developing normally with the other hand you are picking the pockets of venezuela you are shamelessly expropriating venezuelan assets in
2:09 am
western banks the venezuelan government criticized forces around the world for recognizing the individual declared to be president by the united states the self-proclaimed president of venezuela who is not recognized by the majority of countries in the world pointing out that one great oh and his his self-appointed government doesn't control a single street within venezuela itself when it comes to the situation in venezuela and who is responsible for it some forces simply blame the venezuelan government and are calling for its elected president maduro to step down however other forces look at the united states and other countries and look at their efforts to create a crisis in the country and undermine the elected government there are people leaving venezuela absolutely that's true because u.s. economic destabilization and sanctions have laid rock to the economy billions of dollars literally confiscated and sanctions we should remember sanctions are a weapon or literally because of sanctions venezuela. is receding now.

2:19 am
a half thousand accounts of this kind and they generated sixty eight percent at the retreats ahead of that meeting by last the public on march candidate the study described that as a demonstration of strength the goal being in the logic of pure propaganda the creation of a must in fact if we believe the research sparty is doing more than just clamping down or nasty social media content he's manipulating it for a show that even ski altie harris. donald trump the investigation into russian interference of the twenty sixteen presidential election describing it as an attempted coup against him it was it illegal investigation it was started illegally everything about it which brought you here three single thing about it there were dirty cuff these were bad people you look at

undermine him. but there's some basis to what he said i mean there was a century there was without doubt now an attempt to undermine and we can and if not overthrow him for preachments and elect a president who we may not to still may not like and that is something more dangerous them perhaps even trump so he has a basis to say although he did he did he does trend towards hyperbole that there was an attempt to undermine him and to overthrow him in a sense if they had succeeded but unfortunately for them for the f.b.i. and the others involved in this the best a geisha turned up empty there was no there there as peter struck that one of the f.b.i. agents of volved in this mess said in one of his text messages through to lisa page i was working for a bridge apartment as well so of the agency so there was an attempt to do this trump is going to make what he can out of this obviously for political reasons so i wouldn't go into that clik stand of rhetoric but i think he has some he has some basis to say this yes. else around the world

industrial park but don't let the numbers over. the only number you need to remember one one business you know for the mid one and only one but. i remain very much opposed to military intervention i am opposed to it because i fundamentally do not believe it is in u.s. interest there are several issues at play in venezuela one is the terrible terrible humanitarian state into which venezuela has fallen under the regime of the first of which i wish and now you question my point that alone in my opinion is not a justification for an american invasion.

welcome to the alex salmond show where the great game a brick that is now well into overtight alex is back in belfast climaxing our cities on the impact of the bricks debate on northern irish politics and indeed ireland has determined the end game all pricks it. this week he speaks of a drawing of ulster political commentators him and molly who has some vigorous criticism of the political leadership of the province d p sion fein i know the island's tortie secretary of state the democratic unionist party are putting their sense of you unison their sense of the union ahead of the economic well
2:27 am
being of the people of northern ireland very lummi done was taken over the ocean fin party recently as president she's made several major mystics we have a separate state who is deemed right across the community in terms of current broadly by nationalists and by union as to be seen to be a limb dockside kristie it really unfamiliar with the workings of this place here at westminster the prime minister is also under heavy fire from commentators and just about everybody else on issue one of our previously strongest defenders caused a stir this week when he counted on his support for breck's it i think it's important just to use the fact that two and a half years have passed to assess it and you can see that there are real problems of the idea and things which are really kind of worrying and i say this is a break here i went through a real dark night of the sort of about to resume a told us hard government would deliver on bret's it on march twenty ninth she told
2:28 am
us that there was only one deal on the table she told us there would be no you to peano actions and yet over the last week teaser maze ministers have been close it away with her majesty's opposition deciding which of her demeaning red lines to every now she's back in brussels begging for their further stay of execution from get up that appeal was on offer but everything has its price we would not discuss an issue with the u.k. until there is an agreement for i'm on the one island as well as for citizens' rights and the financial sector. we stand fully beyond. that all of this is left even the most faithful of tortie somewhat known last i spoke to called miss peter oborne who says it's time for fellow banks a chance to wake up smell left from osh and think again. welcome to the show peter oborne you've caused quite a stir out of the past few days by you can take on your support for brakes it is

that the idea of. the prime minister is attempts at happened. well i think the prime minister has done her best actually i really admire the way mrs may as really struggled in face of all kinds of humiliations and setbacks to make it happen according to her vision of it but she has her vision has been defeated and in the light of that i think it's important just to use the fact that two and a half years have passed to assess it and you can see that there are real problems of the idea and things which are really kind of worrying and i say this is a break for a real dark night of the soul about this but you can see the economic consequences in this country as being i think the economic model has collapsed it's important to say that it was any particular. was there any particular thing happening issue was that it makes you realise i need to rethink my views on this there were several
2:30 am
issues the first one i think was the was the economics went and those one particular symbolic moment when so james dyson is a great just really. be the great campaigner for braces and he. and he made he said it would work but it would work at the moment when he took his businesses his h.q. and took them to singapore you know he was the poster boy of bricks and suddenly he's going abroad and the same thing happened. cliff the great chemicals manufacturer and when you see these manufacturers who said britain is going to be ok. the european union and when they take their businesses overseas for that for me that hit me in the stomach and the other one is i like summons but i have a great i've a great admirer of alex but i'm a unionist i really believe in the united kingdom and when it hit me. i think in due course.
