1:04 pm
of talks with the labor party and those had broken down but the pm said that she had learned something there had been areas of compromise that she had learned from those talks to the labor party and in this 4th installment she effectively said there would be some concessions and this took the form of 10 points which were in reading about earlier now there are key points in there about workers' rights about environmental protection and the future relationship with the e.u. but the key point is the potential for a 2nd referendum for m.p.'s to vote if this bill goes through to the people if they were to pass it now along with that they also she called on parliament to break the impasse about the customs union there are huge differences of opinion on how we work with the in terms of trade and development but she called on parliament the m.p.'s to try and help solve that as well as the other impasse we have the special status over northern ireland for all our division and disagreement we believe in democracy that we want to make good on the promise we made to the british people
1:05 pm
when we asked them to decide on the future of our e.u. membership and we can bring an end to the months years of increasingly bitter argument and division that have both polarized and paralyzed our politics we could move on move forwards and get on with the jobs we were sent here to do but we got into politics to do just what we can achieve if we support this new deal reject it and all we have to force is division and deadlock here appeals didn't appeal to the opposition leader jeremy corbyn he said that over all her time those 3 years since the referendum all that is served to do was divide the country and. the time is now run out she no longer has the authority to offer a compromise and cannot deliver. that's why it's trying for a general election to break the brakes if you can treat. the details of this bill will be published on friday and eagerly pored over by no doubt all members of

parliament plus people across the country and there is a whole position to this particular day all coming from the labor party coming from the d p coming from the liberal democrats but also from within her own party as well and there have been calls indeed for the prime minister to stand down acedia choice to looking at ways of changing the rules that they could challenge her leadership in less than 12 months which is what the rules say currently so big pressure on the prime minister could she be gone sooner than she thought. some e.u. officials are particularly pleased with trees amaze latest efforts either stressing that the block is in no mood to reopen briggs it will go on the internet has been having a field day. theresa may 1st of her name queen of making it up as you go along the burns kept in chains and mother of chaos may's new deal got to vote to break that to stop regs it waits

in for final use illusion of bracks. former director of research at britain's institute of economic affairs jamie whyte says the reason why has no chance of getting her deal over the line. 3 outcomes that are possible no deal breaks at all unlikely the 2nd referendum i think it's increasingly likely or just continuing on until a full blown political crisis emerges which results in a general election on the assumption that theresa may doesn't get this through they'll be a new leader of the conservative party soon enough plus one cent to be starting from scratch not completely because they'll know that there's resistance in parliament almost every possibility so that information is out but still with made no material progress in 2 years and will have a new leader who can be starting from scratch. while britain hasn't left the e.u. yes it will take part in the european elections on thursday senior figures on
1:08 pm
especially pleased about the prospect of seeing hardcore brigs that is galloping into the european parliament with france's economy minister for walden saying the quicker the u.k. leaves the better something britain say you vote shouldn't even be happening. i mean a supporter of the 2nd referendum for about 2 and a half years it's just gone on too long and i never once heard of. this i think this is a turd trying. to get bricks if you stick to their hearing about it you'll be voting in european elections. well i'm going to leave your. well it's like this being absolutely info taking is really important it's. oxycodone i think it's completely useless and a waste of time for the english and a waste of money for the european union it's going to cost us
1:09 pm
a lot and it is ugly enough i wanted on the english have never really been in the europe they always had their conditions in the surrealist an absurd. example i think it's important that they can vote they are still a part of europe at the moment. i think the british like the french and all europeans leave and democratic countries and as long as democracy exists it is necessary that everyone can express their ideas in an ideal. you'll ask it seems intuitive to me i can understand what is difficult to motivate people to world to take part in the election that they should know this but separating is. wahlberg's it may be casting a shadow over the e.u. election something that isn't russian meddling these bring to our live reports and now the kremlin's influence despite the much talked about is yet nowhere to be found. earlier this week finds were gripped by the series finale of game of thrones but there's also plenty of fun of a nother fantasy tale the story of meddling in
1:10 pm
a you elections winter isn't the only thing that's coming so is the risk of interference in our elections and guess who the suspect is we investigate the claims of russia's attempts to influence and undermine the democratic system in europe fears that russia is infiltrating the very heart of european democracy and we're starting to see the early signs of essential in kind of a repeat of what we saw in the us elections in regard to russian hacking and russian tampering but just as some fans of the wranglings of west roswell left disappointed by the way their show ended a dragnet operated by social media companies looking for misinformation and propaganda has turned up well nothing nothing from google. so far we haven't seen any interference on the platforms what about facebook there have been no published accounts of attacks specifically related to the election to date
1:11 pm
twitter that's full of angry people already they must have turned up something we're always seeing a baseline level of it but nothing that has coalesced around a specific topic theme or group or even country but there was one the area where it was said that there was evidence of russian interference the fact that we hear it r t the russian news service sputnik had been talking about the e.u. elections they have been picking up the theme consistently over the past few months they do seem to be pushing slightly anti establishment messages. we've seen european politicians focus their attention on alleged russian meddling but what about real issues russia has been a very common scapegoat these past years i was in western democracies the narrative these past years must be careful there are russian does russian influence the russians are behind this russian is trying to just you're a democracy and now we don't have any proof for what the drollest are ass what have
1:12 pm
you got we don't have any and the whole narrative just collapsed politicians today were for your party russia and moscow behind the rise in the populist movements don't have an argument anymore or they're losing this argument every day and they're in a very bad situation once you prove that there is no more problem coming from russia then you have to face the fact that the problem is coming from yourself and the teams chose intro to country. so all moscow seems to be staying out of it the same can't be said for large corporations. take german or lufthansa which put a clear message on one of its jets that read say yes to europe music streaming service spotify meanwhile called on europe to quote get vocal putting together a special playlist ahead of the vote which featured an artist for me member of the block the c.e.o. of iraq not investment managers told as large corporations have a vested interest. the attitude of the big corporations banks has always been the
1:13 pm
same of course they have 3 in this in this european and biome and it's not a surprise to me that they are actively and strongly supporting the pro european views they have a very large network network and they use they use it a lever originates in order to bring up their policies their policies they like the most many of the issues has been underestimated or even ignored just it's by europe and by these large corporations there are real issues that europe and this large corporation did that we didn't god and didn't respond to you know they come up with some ok europe is not is not perfect but you know there is something to fix one of the reasons luck to fix there is a lot to fix because they have moved too much forwards into a project without taking into consideration legitimate issues raised by the population. some e.u. leaders are still looking for the influence of russia the french president is claiming that the u.s.
1:14 pm
has been playing a hand when it comes to the rise of euro skeptic parties however some analysts say these are only making such accusations because support for his own party is falling fast we'll take a closer look at that after the break. our china in the u.s. in training endgame the battle. have been drawn and demands made in this trade war it appears ball size are preparing for the long haul what does it mean to win
1:15 pm

dismantling of europe lobbyists like mr bannon who's close to american power say so the russians and others have never gone to such great lengths to sponsor and how be extremist parties. looking for answers many of these countries citizens are seeking solutions recent polls show a sharp fall in support for the president's party. reports. in 2017 france was gripped by the presidential election in the one corner it was not being the pen in the other a manual mark or now despite the protections of a close fight my corner ended up delivering the knockout punch to. the european elections feel like a place of a rematch with their respective parties clashing on the future of the e.u. and the polls are suggesting that national rally could actually win this out many french people see this as being a referendum on a president who's in leadership or seen the rise and social unrest of the yellow best movement for months now the polls have painted a picture of
1:17 pm
a man caught with his disapproval around 2 thirds so we've come to his home town of imam to see if things look any better for him here zorra doesn't define my political ideas so i think if we are speaking about the european elections we should probably lean towards a national rally as some sort of way of sanctioning him. i think he's forgotten the people of france he doesn't do a lot for us at the beginning i thought he'd be a good president but now i don't think so it's not to not do what we did was stupid yes it's possible the french are sanctioning the crimes in politics especially those who. don't but i don't think it's a solution as books and we will see what. i'm going to say for the national rally because i think it's i meet them they can find the solution what we tried to right the left the center is the right center and left at the same time and it doesn't change anything corn has laid out his ground a vision for european wants closer integration better cooperation and an e.u.

army but if his party flops at this e.u. election and he's been a euro skeptics one question will launch it mark who can't convince his own citizens let alone other e.u. leaders about his vision of europe. credible is it in the 1st place so much even ski r.t. . the united nations general assembly has voted overwhelmingly in favor of the u.k. ceding control of the chug of silence in the indian ocean back to malicious. descendants this will pave the way for their return. expulsion of locals from the islands has been described as one of the worst examples of britain's days as a colonial power
1:19 pm
a community of displaced islanders in london has been campaigning for decades for the right to be resettled on the island sabrina jean from the refugees group says that the u.k. isn't the only side preventing the islanders return. my question has been always why they don't are out to retire on our british open ricky door do much. good this hour and then manage more so the us saw me as a 2nd generation ice sleet it's time told them to realize what they've done is wrong the child goes to trial goes so natural the this is why. they need to return the country to their child lotion. which i guess islands have been of the center of a decades long dispute between britain the militias which in the 1960 ceded the
1:20 pm
territories in exchange for independence plus $3000000.00 pounds we've allowed the united states in $97.00 to want to build a military base on diego garcia the largest of the tolls britain evicted about one and a half $1000.00 to make room for the u.s. base diego garcia was an important launch planned for u.s. missions in iraq and afghanistan the u.s. lease runs until 2036. earlier the international court of justice ruled that britain illegally split the islands and should return them back to militias rejected the ruling we issued to the general assembly in 2017 only 15 delegates opposed the decolonization bid some in the u.k. also aren't happy about britain's claim to the islands. i wish to express my concern that the government appears ready to disregard international law and ignore a ruling of the international court of justice and the right of child gossoons to return to their homes this is not
1:21 pm
a matter of degree or nice ation for the general assembly it's a bilateral sovereignty dispute between the united kingdom and more research it is a complete case and double standard and in fact many african nations will have voted. in favor of the england giving it up right now the big occupier of this island is not the u.k. there are some new case that staffers from the military because it's our military but it's the united states that the whole lot of them drawn there have a. afghanistan over the past few years came from this base it's also the the there's also a prison there a kind of more isolated version of one time and i think at best what we can expect might be some kind of financial compensation for the shah gaiety and living in marriages it's sad to say but to keep quiet unless we see political change

elsewhere and unless the united states decides that it wants to change its foreign policy for good. in the united states dozens of major footwork companies have penned an open letter to donald trump urging him to halt planned tariffs on china plants and the ongoing trade war with beijing companies say consumers will suffer from the tariffs adding a 25 percent tax increase on top of these tariffs would mean some working american families could pay a nearly 100 percent duty on their shoes this is unfathomable your proposal to add tariffs on all imports from china is asking the american consumer to foot the bill it is time to bring this trade war to an end. earlier donald trump hiked duties from 10 percent to 25 percent on $200000000000.00 worth of chinese goods smart abuse the president believes that he will reach a new trade deal with beijing china in retaliation plans to raise import tariffs to

a cigar a trillion dollars worth of bonds it can do that and in fact it's been doing it every year for the last 10 years in what they call quantitative easing so china could say his is a $1000000000.00 bonds and american say here's a $1000000000.00 in your bank account what else have you got and it would be irrelevant because if the american dollar tried you have a huge demand for the dollar then you would have it was just foreign it's american goods it's something in between 3100 percent live cross the next should be so of course it's always going to run a try deficit so the only real way out is to is to design an alternative mantri system that doesn't use the american dollar for international trade and i know china russia and europe are talking about that turkey as well as the differences and i sincerely hope one of those develops and takes away the capacity that america has to weaponize international trade. ok thanks thing with all the international this evening i'll be back with updates on the top stories for you just over half an hour.
