1:03 pm
in any future general election campaign i will discuss with our party to ensure there is a process now of reflection on this result and on the policies that the party will take going forward. so then from my lips he's done the promises are already gone through the formality of meeting the queen to be granted permission to form a government that's a tradition in britain all votes counted the latest is tonight saying i was in coma last to declare confirming the tories of course an 80 seat majority and given lots of leeway then for boris johnson and his bricks to get it done we can discuss the big talking points as mention with our correspondent hawkins here in moscow in a bit such detail is in london let's go to her 1st of all. you know you of the moment when we spoke to an hour ago it was reasonably quiet made a point of the things certainly have heated up around you what's going on where you are the who are these people behind you. well they said they would not that be as
1:04 pm
was as decisive and disputed so as the bracks that referendum but i'm not so sure because i'm standing up to set downing street and i can tell you i'm surrounded by say to you office straight ahead stuff a strange trip that furious and that. by the results of us in general election the results of course being that the conservatives to him to victory is a landslide victory the best since margaret thatcher was not a controversial prime minister since 8987 and of course the labor very disappointing night the worst result and yes so what did they decide to do the majority of course we've talked feeling pretty happy a problem for the minority what's not but they decided not to make brown they decided to rally together they organized themselves on social media and they have descended on the prime ministerial residence 'd we can hear chaunce of tory tory
1:05 pm
tory out boris johnson not for my prime minister that calling him a sexist. racist homophobe they're saying previous comments that he's made about the fact that for example muslim women look like you have to boxes because of their religious had to have a classy. examples of how it feels just not material to meet a country that is so most of cultural anti plus as the united kingdom they have come here and then showing the world they didn't get deleted that they won ted is that going to put up like to fly i'm not going to be a headache of course john said for the next guy he is but what i do want to point out is of course the european union flag and that has been crucial to this election because it was precise name in the press issue of course talks and won the election yes of course jeremy corbin the nature of the labor party has proved to be quite
1:06 pm
a controversial sit god in smith's social history quite radical fiscal policies but her exit was the name of the game here and it was exactly a great course john says do or die pledge his i'd rather be dead in a ditch than today pret said one more time and the fact the conservatives are ready to any major project that is committed to that saying on the results of the 2016 referendum that clinched the deal for boris johnson and it's done millions of people up and down the country in order to cause a to turn away from so from parties that they've been fighting for for decades in order to get a strong said the majorities to get to get breakfast done we have course now if not anything since 117 but the fact you've got a majority in parliament doesn't necessarily mean that things are going to go will direct it but it's us in the means of course johnson will be full so can i add this stuff looks like
1:07 pm
a pick crowds and it's actually growing pika and pick up by the hour and if these protests are anything to go by that everyone has that 20 of that these elections would stop the fact that society just simply not sure there is no interface and then as the before and british society bust. boris johnson see the course tonight saskia will leave it for now but you later keep an eye on that for us maybe get a shout from the people on this what they think about you the bit boris johnson is not going to look at it that way dan hawkins is in the studio he's going to be rubbing his hands in glee because he can finally get bricks but he's got he's got a big majority 8 seats now and we were talking earlier on about the tory rebels who are the guys that were expelled $21.00 initially was. some of those people lost their seats with 11 lost their seats 2121 expelled 10 of them had they were restored some of them decided to stand as conservative m.p.'s in that election they won their seats 12 of them didn't stand and 5 lost their seats so that even less
1:08 pm
opposition opposition certainly which of course was such a big problem for for to reason made that group often hijacking. bills regarding that's now gone gone is any sort of formidable labor opposition has a lot of leeway on tires projects and stands to push policy through here into reserve may's words ringing to me is bricks it means bricks that we've heard was jargon along the way but ok right so a decisive vote for the conservatives tonight in britain i'm a brit you're a brit we're looking over back from moscow that this was actually mean is brittany clear about what bracks it's actually going to mean what's being sorted out we hear ports are on standby we hear also though from the european side that there's no way michel barnier that you're going to get a trade deal sorted out with europe even within a year as boris johnson's been saying by the end of 2020 so what's the reality here well this is the earth the irony of everything is that because you mention the brics it means slogan it was very loud very clear very resonant getting breaks it
1:09 pm
down was very similar it's always of campaign 2 elections now and one of the last election with a landslide victory on a statement which has resonated with so many and of course you will pass that bill in parliament that's that i think up for discussion any longer the opposition doesn't have the numbers to oppose it but of course there has to negotiate a trade deal with the remain. 2127 now e.u. states that has to ratify it all has to be done before june 2020 deadline boris johnson has said he's not going to extend the deadline should an agreement not be reached meaning potentially draw the line under the fact that by december 2020 there is still a possibility of a new deal bricks and of course that was the warrant for for so many people a minority sort of said get it deal or no deal get out a lot of people who are concerned about still so much to be thrashed out to the scottish side of this debate but of course the border in our land is it going to happen what's going to be how they're going to work is anyone any any closer to working out how that's going to work when speaking of borders of oil and of course
1:10 pm
i mean so to use a cliche but we have seen the rise of nationalist parties now we know we saw this rise of mount establishment politics in america donald trump in france le pen so it will be talked about for a while now and it's happened here as well they are simply making tremendous gains in scotland decimating labor tradition relied on knows you know labor seats in scotland decimating the conservatives nicolas sturgeon was jubilant last night and saw them when the lib dems leader joseph wilson was knocked off a seat basically by a few 100 votes she was dancing on or on camera they're on or. they will not be pushing for a 2nd in the pen of a friend in fact members of scottish parliament will meet already as early as next week to decide a timetable timetable what they call a detailed democratic case for deciding whether there should be a 2nd independence of a friend of mine or not and as well for the 1st time and we've seen the number of nationalist employees outnumber us in 1921 unionist m.p.'s their knowledge of god losing his deputy leader abusing you see to the new can map out for new can it's very much something is going to be a of
1:11 pm
a concern to boris johnson ok back to scotland. scholarships and people. it's a huge night for them last night take us through a bit more of the as you said there's likely to be another vote on whether they go their own separate ways or not it's britain more divided more more settled tonight . less settle what's the vibe here what's going on talking about gold it's a way meanwhile the world they want $48.00 seats in scotland 44 percent of the votes that's an 8 over 8 percent increase last time something with nicolas there is going to feel that gives her a man that push for a 2nd independence or a front and let's take a listen to what she had to say. stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. is reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over the future that monday says that it is for the scottish parliament not a waste mr government to say whether and when this should be
1:12 pm
a new referendum on independence. or assurance unhappy man nicholas. generally called were no longer will who will be leading the party like him or all over the matter is the case remains to be seen what's going to happen before that deadline to meet the pledge which has won him a landslide victory can he not certainly the pressure will be on him now to prove that and just the vi those labor voters who perhaps for the 1st time ever switch to the tories to get breaks done so it will be done we'll be back here next year talk about the same thing but then you are officially of nicholas sturges christmas card list anyway thanks very much for that so another general election over big vote of confidence for boris johnson as we discuss that in the tories are our colleague to the r t u k great coverage here on 10 hours of it discussed with a number of guess why this all happened and whether or not it will finally mean brics it germany the 31st. it to all intents and purposes the selection in the end became a back seat election which in itself was
1:13 pm
a de facto referendum and therefore in that context it is some of the standard see that labor votes and to each of those areas said. west bromwich outside a booming embrace the conservative party in in an even larger majority sent a new leaf sorry. i don't see a referendum taking place now you know if it's a case of ever wanting to rejoin the e.u. it will be as an outside a study from a position of great obliqueness i think rex it was probably because i said factor in most voters' minds but there were a few other issues that mean it's fairly obvious that the labors policies were quite hard left and i think that probably didn't resonate quite so well with as much as the public as they had hoped some of the policies were a little bit a little bit extreme to say the least so that was probably part of it but i think yes the predominant issue was was practice it and the conservative party presented
1:14 pm
the way forward the certainty the resolution and the end to the torment and frustration and confusion that we've been suffering for the last few years of course it doesn't mean that the process is finished but i think the 1st stage and crucially the political element of it is now resolved for that to come for the night elsewhere now this new in for you it's being dubbed as a phase by phase deal and could be the 1st stepping stone in easing current u.s. china trade war intentions washington and beijing of announced that new agreements are in place this friday which include relief on a number of tariffs in a booth with agriculture industry ketubah opens across this go to new york city and a plea even to you could 80 phase by phase suggest slow progress tell us a bit more about the deal and what it entailing as you. gathering it tonight. well rumors have been circulating for the past few days that some kind of deal was in the works to resolve the trade disputes between the usa and china the idea being
1:15 pm
that the tariffs would be scaled back in exchange for tens of billions of dollars of agricultural products and other things being purchased from the united states and some concessions on china's part now in response to these rumors that we heard the democrats speaking up this was chuck schumer reports say president sold out for a temporary unreliable promise from china it's a purchase some soybeans we've heard this song and dance from china be fool yet again president company relied on to do the right thing even when his statements were pointing in the right direction now we then heard from donald trump speaking up about how this was simply fake news this is what he said the wall street journal story on the china do is completely wrong especially this statement on tariffs fake news they should find a better leka. but just
1:16 pm
a few hours afterwards we heard china come forward with an official press conference announcing that phase one of the deal was on the verge of being implemented this is what we heard from the official chinese press conference. the agreement will create better conditions for china and the united states to strengthen cool peroration economy and trade property monies unresolved economic and trade disputes or differences and promote stable growth of china's economic and trade relations given the downward pressure on the world economy. now trump spoke up afterwards saying that essentially china had agreed to a number of structural changes and would be purchasing u.s. agricultural products as well as energy and manufactured goods also said that he was hoping to begin work on phase 2 of the agreement but he would want to do that immediately not wait until 2020 and this trade war has been asking lading between
1:17 pm
the united states and china a sense june of 28 teen there's been an escalation of tariffs many many different you know regulations being put in place and different products being targeted but it seems that some kind of resolution is in the works that we now have an agreement of some degree so folks we're waiting to see what happens next there has been hope before that the trade war was going to be resolved and those hopes of then been shortly afterward disappointed so what comes next it remains to be seen but at the moment many are optimistic that it appears that things are moving forward you know a new year time for be reproached maybe will be across if you go to help folks like out of new york city folks watching us tonight at home what is it something to hope for the last night and even though the time is friday the 13th coming up at least 71 soldiers killed in a militant attack on the face in the shia it's exposing a deep crisis for french foreign policy and what is its former colony just one of the stories red cross for you soon as we're back after the break.
1:18 pm
1:19 pm
join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm showbusiness i'll see you then. i get good evening security situation in west africa's deteriorating further we can report militants there have killed at least 71 soldiers in what's one of the deadliest attacks on the country's army is an islamic terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack which also left 12 others injured it took place out of a perspire on the meeting between french president among your mccrone and 5 west african leaders over security in the region france's insisted its nato allies take the
1:20 pm
situation seriously now and provide more support a correspondent corps to delve deeper into the challenges paris is facing right now in these yeah and indeed in some more of its former colonies to. africa has become a hotbed of terrorist activity as deadly attacks claiming hundreds of lives have spread like wildfire. europe will have 2 swords of damocles over its head terrorism and kidnappings but also illegal immigrants since many are traveling through this region following one of the deadliest attacks in niger or 70 people were killed by islamists the big
1:21 pm
players have even postponed a big summit to reconsider their efforts the presidents of france uneasier agreed to postpone the summit on operation by kanya on the joint chiefs on health force until early 2020 the 2 presidents expressed their determination to remain united against terrorist groups and to redefine together in the coming weeks the political and operational framework for ensuring the security of the sa held countries france spends millions of euros and sends thousands of soldiers to control the situation there but with the region's poor infrastructure damage control is difficult to say the least france needs help also context a lot in this context and in light of the decisions that france will take a big engagement by its allies is obviously something that would be quite positive in this a hell france is involved in acting on behalf of everyone there are other budgetary questions the means but at least as important in our eyes is a contribution of the europeans to operations to the management of prices it would
1:22 pm
not be right to spend the 2 percent without having actually done anything with the armed forces just at the moment when crisis required her. spawn's and it's not the 1st time macron has been vocal over the issue the french president also criticized nato for bickering over defense spending instead of doing more to help the war on terror and sahil why does france care so much about saw hell as is almost always the case it's about africa's natural resources the border of mali and niger is lined with your rainy a mind so vitally important for french power stations of course it's also dangerous if islamic fundamentalists grow an influence there they would only need to travel through libya for a direct line to the european continent and with sahil being half the size of europe it's not easy to isolate terrorist cells as for paris well it shifts the blame to the african states which can't cope with these challenges alone it almost seems like afghanistan all over again deteriorating government control and growing
