4:05 pm
those talks to the labor party and in this 4th installment she effectively said there will 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 was the potential for a 2nd referendum for n.p.c. 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 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
4:06 pm
move on and 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 to do was divide the country and you. know china 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 run 3 so 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 the house being cause 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 to resume his latest efforts either stressing the block is in no mood to reopen briggs that negotiations on the internet has been having a field day. recently 1st of her name queen of making it up as you go along the burns kept in chains the mother of chaos may's new deal got a boat to break to stop gregg's waits in full for i know whose illusion of drax and . the former director of research at britain's institute of economic affairs jimmy white says to reason why has no chance of getting her deal over the line. 3

outcomes that are possible breaks at unlikely the 2nd referendum i think is increasingly likely or that's 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 will be a new leader of the conservative party soon enough that person was sent 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 now but still with made no material progress in 2 years and will have a new leader who can be starting from scratch. our britain has left the e.u. yet it will take part in european elections on thursday senior brussels figures on especially pleased about that prospect of seeing hardcore briggs it is galloping into the european parliament france's economy minister for once said the quicker the e u v u k leaves the batter something that britain's e.u.
4:09 pm
vote shouldn't even be happening. i been 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 up what the other side is i think this is a terror trial. i deserve to get hit bricks if they did their hearing about it being me voting in the european elections boys that well i'm hoping to leave european well it's like this being absolutely floating is really important. or 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 a lot to me it is only enough i don't want to don't know the english have never really been in europe they always had their conditions i find that surrealist an absurd but. i think it's important that they can vote they are still
4:10 pm
a part of europe at the moment. i think the british want 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. or breaks it may be casting a shadow over the elections something that isn't is russian meddling peter all of reports on how the kremlin's influence despite being much talked about is 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 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
4:11 pm
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 you 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 ross were 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 e.u. election to date 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
4:12 pm
a specific topic theme or group or even country but there was one 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 and 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 or more of them trying to strasbourg who have you got they don't have any and the whole narrative just collapsed politicians today were for your party russia and moscow behind the rise in the
4:13 pm
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 a shelter than you have to face the fact that the problem is coming from yourself and the team that shows intro the country. or moscow is thing out of it it seems same can be said for large corporations like german ally love tons of for example which put a clear message on one of its jets the red say yes to europe music streaming service spotify called on europe to quote get vocal putting together a special playlist ahead of the vote which featured an artist from each member of the block the c.e.o. of iraq not investment managers told us launch corporations have a vested interest. the attitude of the big corporations banks has always been the same of course they have 3 ved in this in this european environment is not a surprise to me that they are actively and strongly supporting the pro european views they have
4:14 pm
a very large network network and they use they use it no leverage in it in order to bring up their policies their policies they like the most many of these shoes as we know underestimated or even ignored just like 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 gay europe is not is not perfect but you know there is something to fix while there is a lot to fix there is a lot to fix because they have moved too much forward into a project without taking into consideration illegitimately issues raised by the population. the head of the european elections there been frequent stories in the media about the fear of russian interference but the french president among micron's been claiming is washington has been trying to influence the outcome. i see for the 1st time a collusion between the nationalists and foreign interests whose objective is the dismantling of europe lobbyists like mr ban on whose most american power see so the
4:15 pm
russians and others have never gone to such great lengths to sponsor and help extremist parties and looking for answers many of his country's 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 deemed the pen in the other a manual mark or there despite the protections of a close fight my corner ended up delivering the knockout punch to. the european elections feel like a bit of a rematch with their respective parties clashing on the future of the e.u. and the polls are suggesting that le pen's national rally could actually win this pot 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 grim picture of
4:16 pm
a man caught with his disapproval around 2 thirds so we've come to his home town of i mean you just see if things look any better for him here zone. doesn't define my political ideas so i think if we are speaking about the european elections we should probably lean towards the 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 cool enough what we did was yes it's possible the french are sanctioning the crimes politics especially those who. but i don't think it's a solution and we will see would. i'm going to vote for the national rally because i think it's i need them that can find the solution we tried the riots 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 close integration better cooperation and an e.u.
4:17 pm
army but if his party flops at this e.u. election and he's been a euro skeptics one question will launch if not cool can't convince his own citizens let alone other e.u. leaders about his vision of europe. credible is it in the 1st place mcroy who wants to be obama. i'm afraid to to say but marine le pen wants to be trunk she went to the trump tower during a container shoes and 9 myra of them don't like to be the best of enemies it's useful to them and we don't have a single choice on real topics like the possibility of a real exists on the e.u. from the euro international rally abandon this policy of tricks it's comparing to the last elections and last year for instance marilyn suggested russia should be a part of nato i think the real enemy of them are the next and it will be the political extension because it's a topic of paramount importance but it would be wise to delegitimize or use

a euro parliament that doesn't have any power because in europe it's the european commission that is a ruling. united nations general assembly voted overwhelmingly in favor of the u.k. ceding control of the go silence in the indian ocean back to moorish our leaders and their descendants so 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 a community of displaced islanders in london's been campaigning for decades for the right to be resettled on the island is about a shallow from the go silent as movement told us even with the favorable you invoked political powers shouldn't forget talking to the displaced locals. we have done so much we have suffered so much and they were still suffering our identity our value they're both our belongings that our belongings our culture all this were

launchpad for us missions in iraq and afghanistan the u.s. lease runs until 2036 and washington was among the only 6 countries who went against the un resolution. earlier the international court of justice ruled britain illegally split the islands and should return them back to militias rejected the ruling richest took the issue then to the general assembly to the 17 only 15 delegates opposed. so 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 chad gossoons to return to their homes this is not a matter of degree for the general assembly it's a bilateral sovereignty dispute between the united kingdom and more research it is a complete case and double standards and in fact many african nations will

planning chemical attacks on his via quick response comes as donald trump claims he's being pressured by the u.s. arms industry to keep thousands of american soldiers in syria kill him open explains. so who sets us foreign policy well when it comes to the projection of military force of the constitution and common sense says that's the president your sound george w. bush put it but i'm the decider and i decide what is best but recent statements from donald trump throw that into question here is what he said if you do have a military industrial complex they do like war you know in syria with the caliphate so i wipe out 100 percent of the caliphate i shall want to bring our troops back home to place one crazy they want to keep the thing you have people here in wa she want it they never want to leave some day people will explain what this is and if you will do have you do have a coupe and they call it the military additional couple so according to trump he
4:23 pm
wanted to bring troops back from syria but he was compelled to leave several 100 of them there why well according to him the usa has quite a powerful military industrial complex and if our president is fighting against it it seems that he's hiding this fight rather well recently donald trump appointed patrick shanahan as his new secretary of defense shanahan spent 30 years at boeing which is one of the largest defense contractors in the united states and one of the world's biggest arms manufacturers and like many other companies contracted by the pentagon boeing is having a great year. folks in this industry have actually pointed to what they call the trump effect have you seen that in terms of our allies and our spending not only have i seen we think it's the best time we've ever seen in a long time for the defense industry but it's not just the truck presidency that has been a boon to the military industrial complex many different political leaders in the united states have campaigned on

miss and will only do so if ringback we have a plan for victory with a capital. it's as if we've learned nothing from history the 34th us president dwight eisenhower warned the public about unwarranted influences when he left office over 60 years ago in the councils of government we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence whether saw or run by the military industrial complex. the potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. we must never let the weight of this combination in danger are limiting our democratic process. we should take nothing for granted. in american people don't want war so presidents always run as the peace candidate and then you know
