live direct from our studios in moscow this is r.t. international i'm john thomas certainly glad to have you with us boris johnson's conservative party is celebrating a historic victory in thursday's it general election the prime minister says it gives him a powerful mandate to deliver brags that the action delivered the worst result for the labor party since the 1930 s. here's how the party leaders reacted to historic day in westminster. proud to say that members of our new one nation government a people's government will sit tight from constituencies that have never returned a conservative m.p. for 100 years and yes they will have a ruling mandate from this election to get done and we will honor that mandate by general the 31st will not lead the party in any future general election campaign
6:02 pm
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 while the conservatives are celebrating winning there are just majority since 1987 hundreds of people have turned out for so-called stop bourse protests some demonstrators were seen clashing with police in the capital earlier my card discussed the star general harkins in the studio after so as to tailor this report from. what they said that would never be affirmed as divisive as the press at referendum but i'm not so sure because i'm standing here what does it downing street which is of course the prime minister's residence and i'm surrounded as you can see why hundreds of going to see the photos who are frustrated who are furious and who are angry at the results of the states in general election the result of course being a landslide victory for the conservative party the best result in fact since
6:03 pm
margaret thatcher in 1987 a very disappointing night for its main competitor that is the labor party which saw its worst result in the teeth to those who backed boris and wanted to get his majority in a pretty happens they secured 5 years of touring government but for the minority well they woke up this fight of the team and probably thought they were living in some kind of progress but they took not mope around they decided to rally together they decided to organize themselves via social media and. send it on white cool and they are very clearly categorically condemning the new elected prime minister we can hear chants of chorus boys cries out out out out with the tories of course talk to not my prime minister on all the pac cause you can see no 2 races stand up to racism and to sexism and this is what they're accusing the jump from nothing of saying he's a good he's a sexist he's a racist he's a homophobe and that his comments such as the fact that muslim women look like
6:04 pm
netiquette says because of that religious head was a prime example of how free is just not fit to need a culture as multicultural as strike us as the water in the united kingdom and one thing of course that i want to point out to you is the european union flag how could one talk about british politics in this day and age without talking about brecht said let's make absolutely no mistakes yes boris johnson party won because judge mccool been the leader of the opposition labor party proved to be a very controversial sikka he's been smith is a socialist with very fragile fiscal views but it was bracks it brought to turris triumph now of course if we've learned anything from the last 3 years the fact that someone has a majority in parliament doesn't necessarily mean that they can get anything done but it will make it considerably easier for boris as he tries to push through that directive by trying to touch across 2020 so we know that since 2016 politics has
6:05 pm
proved to be so into fights in retail it's been such a tense political climate and protests like this are anything to go by we start to see a continuation of the front train of society. to tell reporters leaving don't know who can just mentions the studio you have to speaking generally a result of these. dreams can imagine the what the polls are predicting that sort of majority throughout the election campaign but not to this extent i mean labor's been this. you're losing your key seats in its northern heartlands of the midlands war many of them seats which voted labor for 3050 even close to 100 years so this is very much been a defeat for labor based really on lot of people are saying on the question of bricks it went in with a very clear message get bricks it done it was very clear very simple it resonated with those areas with those communities that voted to leave and we've heard michel barnier say no way we're going to get a trade deal signed with britain by the end it will be $21.00 boris johnson so it's
6:06 pm
going to be well that's the thing i mean no trade deal of this size or complexity has been negotiated with the e.u. ever and he's saying that we're going to come out by john weaver the 1st we've been going until june 2022 negotiate this deal it's also got be ratified of course by the $27.00 member states if that doesn't happen the prospect of a new deal bricks come this time next year is that very much of a table spoke in the works along the line what's going to happen on the border between northern ireland or the republic of ireland that's still not sorted up plus there's the whole scottish question ok can off even more nationalist parties have done fantastically well in this election i mean speaking of the deputy leader. dogs lost his seat to the new can for the 1st time since 1921 of ireland nationalists now outnumber unionist s.n.p. again a whole different kettle of fish certainly no disunity in scotland they were very clear they wanted to remain in the e.u. the s.n.p. has capitalized on that and made massive gains 48 seats won 8 percent increase last
6:07 pm
night we saw nicolas there isn't jubilant dancing in fact when the leader just wins and lost her seat this is what she had to say on independence referendum last night stunning election win last night for the s.n.p. renew reinforces and strengthens the mandate we have from previous elections to offer the people of scotland a choice over their future that mandy says that it is for the scottish parliament nor a westminster government to say whether and when. it should be a new referendum on independence we do have an update since she gave that speech sure just earlier today the office of prime minister and saying there's got no intention of allowing a friend in the near future that you've results the 20. has to be respected and there will be a return to division and uncertainty so he's been on an unequivocal that's not a priority that's not going to happen s. and p. they're already preparing to sit down next week and publish what they describe as a detailed democratic case for letting scotland aside and whether there should be
6:08 pm
a 2nd independence referendum so boris johnson isn't going to have it easy he may have his hands on tidy may you know have lost the opposition of his own m.p.'s of labor he's got difficult negotiations coming up and he's got the question of scottish independence and in deep trouble in northern ireland as well to deal with that in the wake of that resulting victory for the conservatives our colleagues at our 2 u.k. discussed what it all means for braggs. it to all intents and purposes the selection in the end became a practice of election which in itself was a defector a referendum and therefore in that context it is some of this and say that labor voters intrudes into that area so that. all west bromwich at such a booming and embrace the conservative party in any large majorities then than in the leafy suburbs the 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.
6:09 pm
it will be as an outside a study from a position of great obliqueness i think rex it was probably because syces factor in most voters' minds but there were a few other issues the immunity fairly obvious that the labor's 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 bracks it and the conservative party presented the way forward the certainty of 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. united states and china have approved a phase by phase trade deal the aim is to cut tariffs on chinese goods while
6:10 pm

6:11 pm
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 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 all differences and promote stable growth of china's economic and trade relations given the don would. 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
6:12 pm
immediately not wait until 2020 this trade war has been asking lading between the united states and china 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 we now have an agreement of some degree so folks we 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. the security situation in west africa is a deteriorating militants have killed at least 71 soldiers in one of the deadliest ever attacks on the country's army and islamic terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the mess to place ahead of
