Coronavirus spreading faster in England than government's worst-case scenario

"Is to go into a second Corona virus locked down for a month from Thursday, The Prime Minister Boris Johnson, cited scientific advice, saying that the rapidly spreading virus risks overwhelming hospitals. Business leaders say the new lock down will cripple retailers and cost countless jobs. But as the BBC's rob Watson explains, the prime minister had little choice. There are two things which have changed his mind. First of all, a fear that Britain's hospitals would simply be overwhelmed by new cases by Christmas on. Secondly, the prospect of a daily death whole worst case scenario of 4000 Day, which If you think about it, even at the height of the crisis, the first wave in April the deaths were 1172. So it's those two things the health system breaking down. And just like a ravage of daily death. Northern Ireland and Wales are already in partial lockdowns. Scotland will tighten its restrictions from Monday.

Brexit: Boris Johnson says powers will ensure UK cannot be broken up

"Johnson, has been defending proposed legislation that would breach the Brexit treaty that Britain signed with the you some MPs within the governing Conservative Party and five former British prime ministers. Voiced serious misgivings about it. But our political correspondent Rob Watson says Mr Johnson is showing no signs of giving in he completely double down on the sort of standoff with the European Union. And I pick out a couple of the words. He accused you of being willing to go to what he called extreme and unreasonable lengths to use. Northern Ireland, if you like, is a sort of a leverage tool, and it's discussions with the U. K about the future trade deals. Absolutely no effort whatsoever to reach out to the European Union. And I guess the other criticism that will be made as well. If you didn't think this agreement with the U the withdrawal agreement was a smart one. Why on earth did you sign it and get Parliament to pass it and go to the country on it? World News

UK's Brexit plans would 'break international law,' minister admits

"The British minister has conceded their plans to amend the Brexit withdrawal agreement would break international law. Brandon Lewis said legislation to be introduced on Wednesday would go against the treaty agreed with the U in a specific and limited way. Criticism also came from the former prime minister, Theresa May, who warned the government it was in danger of losing the trust of other countries. Rob Watson is in Westminster. She's not alone. All sorts of other British politicians and politicians from outside of the country is saying what on Earth is the U. K doing thinking of breaking international law, even the most minor way or threatening to do it? Because what does the U k stand for in the world? If nothing from the upholding of domestic law and international law, I should say that the counter arguments all of that from the Brexiteers camp is to say, Well, if the doesn't want to play nicely with us. Well, maybe we should just tear up the withdrawal agreement altogether.

Well, it is a pleasure to see you all this morning. Thanks again for joining me. Pleasure. So I want to start off lending briefly Kylie someone commented on Itunes with regard to the podcast, and they said some very nice things many more about us. So you should definitely take a look at that. I want to encourage all of our listeners to please review the podcast it really helps us out both in terms to know that we're doing a good job and to help others find it. So if you do that for me, I would be super appreciative. That com that was dated on July twenty ninth but prior to that the most recent one was like the end of April. So. Get to. Work People. And thank you in advance I. Look At. Rob, what are you doing? What have I been doing? Well, you know. I. Keep talking about that Porch but kind of done with there's nothing new about. Other night other than last night i. just sat out there and enjoyed a glass of wine even though it's not completely done yet just sat there and watch the sunset. So drinking hooch on your new deck is the best thing ever. But actually the next project I'm not actually the next project because it's a big one is It's been so hot and Muggy lately that for years on and off have been like do do we want to pool problem is we're very particular about our garden and I would I would have wanted my daughter was little thrown up crappy pool in the backyard just to cool off but it doesn't fit into the. Landscape design apparently of our property. So So We've been totally disagree I went above ground. Pool absolutely. Fantastic. As. Long as I picked, the right would grain right? Well, I, I was going to get I was GONNA. Actually just plant some. Or Tall. Grass in front of it so that you know you can kind of hide it but the problem is I just don't have the space for that. So we've been talking about we've a narrow lot with a twenty foot setback from both sides and it's sixty feet wide. So that means we could just put something in the middle of our yard and there's not very many places to do that. We found this one garden bed that we're willing to take a chunk out of. And possibly dig in and put build a concrete soaking pool. So it's something that it's something that. Is Basically. Yeah. Basically, it's bigger than a hot TUB, but it's not something you can swim laps in. and. and. Probably. Even. Though seems kind of a bit labour-intensive thing. Probably do it with pouring slab in doing a block wall and plastering the block wall in doing stone coping in behind the why you think that sounds labor intensive. Well, actually I had. I had this great idea My. Daughter about how hard liens working on your property tactic. Even offered her a little bit more money than you're paying per hour. Maybe she could dig. Don't you dare? Rolling. So it would probably stick up about it would be right in the lawn. So probably stick up about sixteen inches out of the lawn with a stone top on it so that it would act like a garden benches well and Maybe That or not your own disaster at well, I've actually been just searching around for ideas on. Pinterest in elsewhere and phones mice examples have found some one example of some women in. The. Netherlands who built one by herself and his. All this cool stuff. All these cool details that she did is basically the same methods of construction and one of the coolest things was that Like well, this too small swim in this thing and those those jet pools you can swim in place or like thousands of dollars. While this woman bought thing, it's a it's a harness that you hook to some d rings in the corner of the pool and it doesn't same thing holds you back. Easy swam against this idea the harness. For A jet. You don't need a jet you swim in place to harness keep you from swimming forward You know I'll help dig thing if I can use it now on that. Okay. Sure to harness. Of wacky and honestly the Dickens give me really easy because. All the sand is going to be wheelbarrow downhill from the site and my my ground is all it's like a thirty. Patients one. GOING DOWNHILL My ground ground is all course sand. So a guy I dug a trench to my barn for conduct wants by hand and it was no big deal. Easy.

UK sent coronavirus tests to United States for processing: minister

"Reports of difficulties with increasing the number of tests done and reliable testing kits have not been uncommon during this corona virus pandemic but there's been some disquiet here in the UK after it emerged that about fifty thousand coronavirus test samples had to be sent to the United States for processing because of problems here well let's speak to our political correspondent rob Watson rob Britain now has the second highest number of virus related deaths in the world so this latest problem with the testing must be an embarrassment it is and I would put it this way media I think it's a moment of maximum risk for the government so I'm what I mean by that is that pulling numbers opinion polling numbers have been holding up really well for the government and I am for Boris Johnson since this crisis started but they have been on the way down and of course there have been questions about the protective equipment for frontline health workers and of course particularly about testing and people will remember that the government made a huge deal of this idea that it was going to carry out a hundred thousand tests today by the by the end of April beginning of may they sort of just about manage that but clearly by by some jaggery poker eighth I think people would say and so now it's a now for it to be revealed the fifty thousand tests were done last week in the United States not in the U. K. I think it chips away at that key ingredients so vital for governments and that is trust and after seven weeks of restrictive measures in the U. K. there's a major announcement expected later this evening by the prime minister Boris Johnson what should we look out for us and again there is an awful lot riding on this and Mister Johnson hasn't been particularly visible since he came back from his near death scrape himself with the virus I think what we're looking for is really what what politicians have to do everywhere in the world which is that sort of half full balance between saying how do we keep people safe how do we how do we prevent the spread of the disease or in this case here a second peak how do you balance that against economic collapse now we're expecting the prime minister so on the side of caution that will please some but not all of us I mean it's worth remembering that make many of his own governing Conservative Party a very very uncomfortable about this continuing lockdown and there is unease about the message is expected to unveil stay alerts control of our save lives with a lot of people thinking what on earth does

"Has injected himself into the British election enthroned British politicians through a loop only rejected ground rules for an impeachment inquiry of President Trump. Let's bring in our Friday politics let me start with house speaker. Nancy Pelosi once said she would only support impeachment if it's a bipartisan the fact that they had this impeachment resolution process resolution on the floor part of the debate from the dais and then presided over the end of the vote kind of was on this you know the problem that she created though is that some moderate Democrats back and forth I had with the House majority leader Hoyer this week where or he and and Speaker Pelosi said vote for this they're afraid that these issues are going to become inflated and it makes the Politics Lukens supported this vote given all of the detail I don't know if you have been surprised by the myriad other things that Republicans the thirty one districts that there's a Democrat in that president trump won a lot of that is because where they are the moderates and those swing districts are with Democrats on this impeachment ninety percent of Republicans still approve of the job the president is doing and back him entirely it's very important because that was a signal to directions number one to president trump to demonstrate some cracks in the dam maybe not many but saying you know Senate you better represent us the Democrats folks this thing over get ready the cloud that is dropping so a little bit of a pause there Republicans insist that they're ready to start orders in our latest NPR PBS Newshour Marist poll said that it was unacceptable eight percent in that poll saying that that's unacceptable the question is whether it's impeachable at an impeachable offense but that's GonNa be you know Wade out in in staff to walk is they're defending the president saying that something might have been wrong he read federal a sixty five where Alexander Hamilton talks about the impeachment process potentially with President Clinton in Nineteen Ninety eight they certainly thought that was the case with President Nixon Andrew of what's going to happen next Wendy expect public hearings and when would you expect WanNa do this a little bit more expeditiously than maybe if there wasn't an election calendar you're in next year's election he's on the ballot he was a major factor in the twenty eighteen now than in the past two impeachments in the last fifty years or so so we are and to some of those wavering Republicans in the Senate I would expect they would hope by left and I'm going to throw this one also you dominica which is this morning Elizabeth Warren released how will it be funded or what what more do we know about this in her strategy or right and that is her plan to she is looking at increasing the wealth tax on people who make more than a billion dollars or have more than a billion so those are the two main areas increase on taxes on the wealthy and corporations like maybe the house because Democrats are there but pass a Senate almost impossible because you need normally get worked out in the legislative process and we're not through the primary process here yet so this might be an effort by Elizabeth Warren to kind of you know plow some some you know vying with Joe Biden at this stage is that she might be too far left wing appeared to Joe Biden the other thing in terms of the pay four on this war and talks about cutting eighty fifty eight fifty nine percent and so she thinks that they're spending there that you could take away from the anytime you put these issues out there when

largest sure on Prime Minister Boris Johnson as the British general election campaign begins Odeal brexit president trump also inserted himself into the race this week when he called Garages Radio this deal under certain aspects of the deal you can't do it you just heard president trump their jump into the race here in the UK how how do you feel about that interjection of the President Trump is extremely unpopular in the UK who want to leave the European Union like Boris Johnson have been making is if we do that we is a little hard to discern exactly what the president was talking about when he said this deal wouldn't allow open up the possibility that the UK can do deals with other countries like the US now you keep saying that that the UK will be able to sign all these trade deals around the world Dr Years later trade deals typically are very complex controversial us one is the the UK's priority is going to be to get a new deal with the EU and going to be very controversial in the UK and to the extent that that's what the US wants to get out of a deal deal that we're talking about here but brexit in general I think there's a pretty broad leaving the EU is going to mean it's going to be hard of British firms to do business with Europe actually lead to the UK being being less off do you think that Europe there is a nice symmetry though is that the EU contra much biggest share of the UK's trade losses to the to the UK so it's really kind of UK stands to lose the most one of the things a lot about what you're talking about now that it would actually cost the UK a lot to leave the EU to Brussels gone a lot more attention than the kind of analysis we'll actually this cost that you pay to be part are you making predictions about brexit Terry to become a fool Dr Samson his party's leader Jeremy Corbyn and supporting the early general election he wants to shorting out disagreements about Europe and Britain's role in the world well we Britain now has the biggest pro European community sitting empty and our country our country is horribly divided from Donald Trump Steve Bannon and others that that is not a way to bring the country at the moment and actually that's in the interests of countries like Russia lies told the electorate I mean pandering of immigration rhetoric issues of democracy civility in an enlightened kind of mature yeah in the continent of Europe it's extremely worrying it's very very sad progressive parties on how to defeat it and how to stand up for an icee of two British English member of parliament born in this country I I've been union do you think that some of the frustration that people have that this process to remain now are just ready to be done with the whole brexit process even if that means sentiment north-east of this country that is a bigger drop in growth than we he's like mine in London traditionally black constituency like a sort of area of New York places like the East Midlands and the northeast is the kind of poverty and despair welcome business you're gonNA make a lot of money and there are a lot of conservatives like Jacob rees-mogg that this is because of immigrants the immigration will come down will now found one that immigration that is the heart of the northern parts of this country will disappear the car manufacturers results so I'm afraid the future is very very bleak for the finally ask you a question that has nothing to do with Brexit because we've talked to a number of times on the show I know that because it's the best I've ever had when you go to the United States what's the first thing that you like.

"European Union ambassadors agreed today to grant the United Kingdom of brexit extension beyond next Thursday but they haven't said how long that extension will be British prime Minister Boris Johnson said yesterday he'll give parliament more time to debate his brexit deal but only if lawmakers approve an early general election let's bring in BBC correspondent Rob Watson in London Hi Rob Hi things as clear as ever on brexit never do seem to clear up can we say for sure though that the UK is not going to crash out of the EU without a deal next Thursday. I think that does seem amazingly unlikely despite Boris Johnson's rather unwise a promise that he would rather die in a ditch agreed to an extension of the brexit process oops so what happens next in parliament then goodness gracious well the most important thing is to find out whether or not MP's are prepared to vote for general election as Mister Johnson proposed on on the twelfth of December on I have absolutely no idea yeah whether they will or not I mean I think it's amazing unlikely that opposition parties when agreed to do things exactly as Boris Johnson once but I mean Mandalay keep putting off an election forever probably not so if they say no next week to a general election then what happens well I suspect they'll be sort of a hagler of a want to do next but it's important it's important to remember this why do the Conservatives Mister Johnson wants a general election and once can be surprised because the opinion polls suggests they would win why does the main opposition party of a bit more reluctant because they have seen the same polls Jeremy I it's difficult to see exactly what the a Ford is almost I'm I suspect that the the the leader of the opposition party Jeremy Corbyn is that sort of Chap I think he's rather looking forward to some kind of campaign but those this policy a single hang on a minute this is look at the polls we'd be absolutely crazy let's either a try and get an a second referendum first ahead of a general election all sort of just play a long game just to land the land lion hope that something turns up is a general election if one happens soon really like a second referendum though a lot of people have made that case that that kind of is referendum you either say I'm with you Boris Johnson I wanNA get out or against you Boris Johnson I don't want Britain to leave the European Union I think the answer is yes and no and I think that certainly way the way the Conservative Party would like it because this is going to be you know we all the parties brexit Don I should say by the way in parenthesis that it's a rather effective immensely disingenuous message and we'll be discussing our relationship with the European Union for decades to come whether whether there's a deal or not but that's what Mr Johnson wants and one of the opposite under two of the opposition parties Scottish nationalist and the Liberal Democrats are out and outlets reverse brexit parties but it's different with the other with the other party the main opposition Labor Party and and here's the thing you know whether you want it to be about brexit or not exclusively general election that's just not the way elections work I mean look at it involves forty five million eligible voters anything can happen no doubt other issues other events may intrude on that that's the way of course which you might argue yes you could ever general election but it could settle nothing in a couple of ways and that in that one party may not get an absolute majority and you go back to this what we've just been discussing I'll have the sort of sense well actually did it really subtle Brexit BBC political correspondent Rob Watson we will be seeing you next week in London Rob Get the beer too temperature for us I know that's how you like it in the UK.

K. and a lot of calls is why the Democratic Unionist Party that Protestant possible come ons them in a second so fed up the second man which is differences and then the other bit which isn't legally binding the political decoration which looks forward to the future license ship off the divorce I mean that there it's clear again Mr Johnson once a much more distant relationship between the European Union and the U. K. right I I know everyone in parliament's will go along with that what's the matter saying right now well I was thinking when it when it was sitting here waiting for you to come three times I think about it look old James wants to know everybody listening as if I was going to happen in the vote was robe and then and then I can say I don't know and I'm just gonna go and pull my second Cup of tea of the day so looks what's what's your question I don't know it looks incredibly tight the BBC we have a unit down at Westminster of colleagues who who look at what every single am PS seven the last time I looked at that school that this way which was three hundred and seventeen votes for the government three hundred and twenty two against but obviously yeah Mr Johnson is going to be engaged in a and a massive operation of of charm persuasion arm twisting between now and sense the lunchtime charm persuasion on Tristen sure what about a some suggested bucket loads of cash heading towards an old an island in one form or another I'm not corruption I'm not suggesting that by any means but but things to sweeten the deal I mean I think that that certainly possible but but here's the thing the is back to where I started uniform was being brutal what is the price of Mister Johnson's breaks up and where is it different from what Mrs may sodomizing differed so much more himself inside it's Norman on and I mean Norman on and will be treated differently now if you are a member of the Democratic Unionist Party what is their raise all natural water they exist for is to preserve the union between Britain and Northern Ireland I mean that's that's what they're about that's what really floats their boat right and and so they think that any arrangement which makes Northern Ireland the province last close economically that's the rest of the U. K. that could be the beginning of the end time that could be the beginning of of Northern Ireland becoming closer to to Dublin and sets up so it's a Brussels so one suspects on such a matter of principle but of course I may be horribly wrong I think you know no matter how much money off of them it's it wouldn't do it well promotions being Harvey right so much things as I five a brexit we'll see if that streak continues and MPs in parliament this weekend for that crucial

Tusk to Johnson: Brexit not 'stupid blame game'

"Britain's chief bricks of the guys said to David frost is holding for the talks in Brussels today on the government's two proposals for leaving the European Union on October the thirty first the prime minister Boris Johnson the German chancellor Angela Merkel levels have been discussing how to break the current deadlock box at the same time the government officials told the BBC that the British government is preparing for a break down of those talks this week it follows the publication of a series of texts in the spectator political magazine on Monday from an official in the prime minister's office which claimed that and I could if the deal dies in the next few days then it won't be revised let's speak to a political correspondent rob Watson said rob what Annette is going on well I think this is a a truly dramatic moments and the press pros that someone I know it's been a pretty dramatic all along to them but this is an extraordinary moment because this tax ma'am I want to be like to call it does come from a senior number ten official we think it is from a Michael Dominic Cummings Mister Johnson's chief of staff and if you remember the man he was the brains behind the vote leave campaign want significant because you have to be blind as a pact not to see the message coming from number ten and that is that the vessels that with the E. or about to fail are they going to say it's it's gonna be the E. U.'s fold and that we have I'm going to play tough we're going to try and do our best to still leave the European Union even the facts will out of jail the end of October and if we have to fight a general election we're gonna blame those in the U. K. who stood in the way as they would say it of practice at and those in the European Union he stood in the way of brexit I mean it is a truly still missing moments to them clearly aware of this the European Council president Donald says because accuse Mister Johnson of engaging in a stupid blame game he has a lot I can finish the rest of the tweet for you Julian because it's not extraordinary that's how it came out of that it's at stake is the future of Europe and the U. K. as well as the security in and trust of our people you don't want to Dale you die once the extension you don't want to revoke clove obvious which for those who don't know lance and as you know well enough you guy and of course very pointed to land and that's missed the Tuscan knows of calls that Boris Johnson who this is directed that started lacks it indeed here in Oxford to Mister Johnson than full could possibly blame the European Union for the break down all of negotiations but that doesn't life make life any easier for him necessary doesn't know and I think look a bit of context him and I think one of the reasons why Downing Street has got so incredibly aggressive it is it also reflects the fact that Mister Johnson is in a tight spot on that to some extent he has lost control of the brexit process it's sort of it suggests that these doubling down on the back of the sort of basically taking the view look my very political survival depends all on delivering brexit and that's why I'm that's why anti the gloves are off but it's immensely risky it may put off the vote says it may be put off even some of his own government so I will Britain believing the European Union on October the thirty first question I'm glad time was running out I don't know okay well we'll have to leave it there with a bit of a gap the term rob anything subs on political correspondent rob

Will Johnson's Irish Border Plans End Brexit Impasse?

"It's taken a long time but this week as the UK's prime minister put it the rubber hit the road Boris Johnson made formal proposals to the European Union for how Britain should leave crucially he proposed that the politically sensitive territory of Northern Ireland should be treated differently from the rest of the U. K. it would remain inside the E. U. single market observing east standards and regulations but outside the customs union that would lead to duties on items crossing the Irish border and some customs checks but not he stressed the Irish border which is seen so much turmoil in the past arrangements for the Irish border we're one of the reasons the deal push forward by Mister Johnson's predecessor to resa may fail to win support well this one do any better question for Adam Fleming in Brussels and first our political correspondent rob Watson I think the short answer is I don't know I mean let's say on the one hand he's got a problem in that all the opposition parties of lined up and said look this is rubbish this is worse than to reason may still and don't forget the main opposition party the labor party it said that it wants a deal that I've that caps Britain and a customs union and the trading relationship with you also the crime much like it on the other hand if you think of this as an equation things about the form with parts of his Conservative Party so those on the rights of the party that was a very very pro brexit they like it and they like it partly because of this much brought a message that we've got from Boris Johnson and that is that his vision of a post brexit Britain is about having a far more distant relationship with the U. economically and politically than it has now and they like that kind of stuff additionally those on what might be called the mole pro European wing of the Conservative Party how would I describe them with the sick is pretty desperate right I mean they know the terrible damage that the kind of continuing crisis of a brexit is doing to the government to that policy so in that sense he has a bit more of a tail wind from his I'm. okay so a bit of a mixed message there Adam how was the plan received in Brussels it was a big mix here as well because there was initially a positive reaction the fact that the government had made proposals that's all and the fact that a big center piece of those proposals was northern Ireland's potentially continuing to follow E. U. rules on foods agriculture and manufactured goods which went a lot further than Boris Johnson being prepared to go before but since then lots of concerns have emerged and I think the concerns weigh the positive as well as it did in Brussels or here in the U. K. it sort of depends on what you think is the worst option right I mean do you think what's worse is possible negative impacts on Northern Ireland peace process possible threats to the integrity of the single market customs union on the one hand or do you think it would be even worse to have a no jail brexit or extensions the brexit and a continuation of all the uncertainty I'm gonna think it's as brutal as that when we've reached the point that nobody is thinking of the really smart the best option would pay is what the people think is the least worst run there's a suspicion that Boris Johnson was really serious about this new plan that his heart isn't really in these negotiations at what he's really looking towards is just finding a way to get out of the E. U. at the end of October or to think about what's happening in the next set of elections is that fair well it certainly one theory and it was sort of encouraged by his most senior advice of putting out memos to that effect but look there are these two thirds the one he knows that there's no chance of what he's looking towards as a general election that basically puts those who voted leave in twenty sixteen against everybody else you know you've been frustrated by parliament by the E. you vote for may I mean another theory is that he's perfectly serious about trying to get a deal because they've looked to wanna know deal brexit mites involved and it looks pretty ugly Adam there's a suggestion that what Boris Johnson his long. her vision for the UK is to forge a new much less cozy relationship but the E. U. and for brexit to bring a very firm break between the two sides is the E. U. preparing for this too yeah that sort of thing that has run through the E. U.'s stance on breaks it since the very beginning what sorts of economic model will the U. K. process you after brexit and how will that model interact and competes with the E. U.'s economic model and that is why a big part of the deal that was done with Boris Johnsons predecessor to reason may included measures on what's called the level playing field which would see the U. K. basically sign up to continuing E. U. rules on the environment on labor standards and things like that now that is something that Boris Johnson wants to depart from in his deal he wants the UK to have much more of a blank sheet of paper to decide what kind of economic model it will follow then the U. says fine well if that's what you want to do then perhaps this very generous free trade agreements that we offer to to resume with no tariffs or quotas and really good access to the single market will no longer be available because the be a sliding scale off how much access to get to the single market based on how closely you follow the European model that is a debate though that will rates for the next few years will be in the next five or ten years as that trade agreement gets hammered out if it ever

U.K. Supreme Court Hears Case on Parliament Suspension

"One of the unexpected side effects of the UK's decision to leave the European Union is that U. K. constitutional law the suddenly become interesting today eleven judges of the U. K. Supreme Court have begun hearing two appeals which could have a profound impact on the way the British government is able to operate whatever happens with the brexit process the cases relate to the reason given by prime minister Boris Johnson for the count five week propagation of suspension of parliament not long of course before the U. K.'s due to leave the E. U. on the thirty first of October opening the hearing the president of the Supreme Court lady Hale explained the limits of the judgment that the court will eventually reach it is important to emphasize that we are not concerned with the wider political issues which form the context for this legal issue. as will be apparent when we hear the legal arguments the determination of this legal issue will not determine when and how the United Kingdom please the European Union. we're joined now by our political correspondent rob Watson rob just remind us of the case is being heard. it's one case rarely and it's exploring this notion that Mister Johnson acted unlawfully in suspending PA month because in doing so he was essentially just trying to block parliament from doing what it's supposed to be doing it softens you say which was to scrutinize the work of the government to another what city was trying to avoid at the stresses that was not putting cold avoid disruption to his policy and that in the process he had misled the queen and indeed the whole country because he had said the reason for suspending parliament was to work on a new program of government so it's the moment what what have you been hearing well some details have been coming out well I guess there are two things which at which a striking one is that that central argument for the lawyers against the government that essentially that is that every government. every government the power that it has it must be exercised for a proper unlawful purpose and the try to get politicians as if your hair is clearly not a lawful and proper purposes they would argue I guess the other striking thing that came out was that was this reference to the fact that Mister Johnson marshals the prime minister had noticeably a failed to provide a sworn statements about his motives for for suspending Palmer's which Lawrence against the government so that was all rather suspicious and it's a question I suppose we've used many times over the last few years but rob just let our listeners know just how unusual this is this notion of the Supreme Court still a fairly young institution of course here in the U. K. at getting involved in such a deeply political case what will that is possible the arguments it is a band with him in as as the motivation for suspending Polemon something which happens every year is that any business of the judges but actually I think the really big issue have the bit where you really have to kind of potential self is the Boris Johnson a man who's only been leader of the Conservative Party for a few weeks and it's only been prime minister baffle for few weeks you pinch yourself he is basically in front of the court being accused of lying of misleading the country out of misleading the clean and this is pretty extraordinary stuff and and some of the politics of Mister Johnson and briefly on the timing because we're in this suspension period the moment not long until brexit day do we have a an idea yet of when the court might rule no we don't I mean I suspect it'll be sooner rather than later that they have the they gonna be having these hearings for three days it'll finish on Thursday slide through Beltre to shortly after that as possible and of course will be interesting to see to put it mildly what they rule I mean if they would set up hold the previous ruling of the High Court in Scotland that would mean Mister Johnson would have to call back parliaments it would also mean that it was sort of held up the identity of the. misleading the queen and country which is a full would be possibly a resigning NASA for the prime minister I guess if the colts throws it all out well still potentially oak for Mister Johnson because they may decide look this is not a matter for the judges but actually we're not saying anything about Sir the cleanliness of his motives if I could put it that way James as you did robots enough political correspondent thanks very

"Shea.

He denies the NFC meeting had discussed the sensitive issue of allowing the Chinese company while way to take part in developing Britain's five g mobile network, his political correspondent, rob Watson. I think it's hard not to conclude that this is all part of what might be called the Brexit Malays in British politics.

All eight indicative vote options on Brexit defeated by MPs

"And attempts by British MP's to break, the political deadlock over Britain's exit from the European Union has failed to indicate a clear way forward after two previous parliamentary defeats for a deal negotiated by the Prime Minister, Theresa may with the EU MP's voted on a series of alternative courses of action. But none of the eight options commanded a majority. Rob Watson has this assessment. It leaves us where we started and that is in a state of uncertainty chaos and a profound political crisis. But I guess the options are some sort of accidental no deal Brexit on April, the twelve I think it's also a possibility that the government just collapses, and we have to have a general election, a sort of emergency crisis general election. I think the other possibility is the MP's essentially just ask Europe, we're going to need a much much much longer delay to Britain's Brexit in order for us. The sorts

Or will the farewell be extended? An is the British parliament ready to give a clear signal about what it wants to do about Brexit while MP's will be voting tonight. That's Tuesday night on some amendments. But that is not yet the so-called meaningful vote. And of course, no guarantees at all that any of them will pass. Let's let us makes sense of the situation was rob Watson, our political correspondent, rob. Sense of the situation. Now, there's an oxymoron if we will point you, Danny? They generally we've been here before can parliament agree on anything. Molin Connie mowing Laura's morning.

What's today was supposed to bought the evening is supposed to be all about as MP's basically revealing? What is the latest thinking on Brexit? Having earlier this month rejects it, Theresa May's agreed deal with the European Union. But here's the thing. I'm not sure that we're going to be that much further forward. There's been some suggestions that MP's might be prepared to vote for for a deal if this business the the the guarantee on avoiding a hard border Northern Ireland was in that it's also been suggested MP's might votes to begin the process of passing a law to stop a no deal Brexit, but all I would say has don't hold your breath. And then they'll be a big long messy debate lots of votes, but I fail. We may be made. Not be that much clearer on Brexit for another few weeks. Yes. What would be the key? Rob today's at that backstop that we keep going back to or will. I guess there are two keys. Yes, there's one as to whether MP's la- vote for an amendment, and by the way at amendment is just a fancy word for a proposal by an MP L group of MP's to change or improve that of policy orbit of law. But there is an idea that they might vote for for for an amendment that would say, look, yes, we could support a deal if this arrangement for Northern Ireland was removed, but it's not at all clear to me that MP's will vote for that. Then even if they did it's not clear to me that the European Union would agree to renegotiate that the second set of type of amendment, which is which is hugely important is empty Saint Louis. We're really fed up with the government. If you haven't got some kind of a deal with the European Union by the end of February we way parliament's demand that you ask the EU for a delay for an extension of this whole Brexit process. Also, not less than twenty four hours ago. There was. Huge panic. There was a warning that supermarkets say that fresh food might vanish from their shelves. If there was a no deal. Brexit was absolutely astonishing. Sometimes you have to kind of pinch yourself in pre Brexit Britain as to the kind of things politicians say talking about and businesses. So you're you're absolutely right. The biggest supermarket saying three things that could be shortages of fresh food less variety of food more expensive. And that of course, follows all the warnings from various large companies last week saying if that was no deal they might have to move their businesses. I mean, anyone listening who didn't get the sort of sense of British politics in a state of crisis and businesses being hugely and profoundly wired. Well, that's the way things rob.

Hello. I'm Caroline Wyatt. And welcome back to the well this week coming up. We look political turmoil in Venezuela Zimbabwe, France, but I the political turmoil here in Britain where Prime Minister Theresa may suffered the greatest parliamentary defeat in modern history. When her Brexit deal was rejected by two hundred thirty votes. It indicated a UK parliament as well as people split not along party lines, but into many different camps all in vehement disagreement of whether the UK should stay in the European Union leave on Mrs Maes terms. Plus, you a better deal. If there is one crush out with no deal at all or have a second referendum. This is at least one of out of confidence the following day. But given the scale of her earlier defeat that seemed a hollow victory in the end, many Brits resolved simply the half a Cup of tea in the hope that in the words of that great dickens character mister Mukuba something with. Turn up. But what could that be? And how serious is the deadlock, and what might unlock it? I put those questions to our panel of expert correspondence, Adam Fleming in Brussels. Andrew Walker economics. Correspondent rob Watson, our political correspondent, I asked rob. I is that anyway, she can get agreement inside outside her party to push a deal through. I guess the answer your question. Carolina is that it's possible. But if it was easy it would have been done by now, and it's worth remembering at the Reese of this crisis. And let's state again for the sake of any doubt that Britain is in the most profound political crisis since the second World War at the root of it is the fact that Britain's politicians simply cannot agree on what to do about the result of the referendum in twenty sixteen. It's a sort of simple basic an excess. And of course, the other thing the root of this crisis is the sort of visceral division within the governing conservative party over. What to do about Europe? It's been there for about forty years. It's what led to the referendum. And it's why now. Having some would say foolishly attempted to get Brexit salted as a conservative only project. Theresa May as now trying to make it a cross party project and any hope that might succeed. I think it'll be immensely difficult for three reasons. Firstly as personalities threes has many qualities, but the idea of charming people who have different points of view or come from different. Parties is probably not one of them. Secondly because in order to get across party agreement. She would have to soften Brexit. And that would almost certainly lead to a split in her conservative party will again, it's worth remembering what has been driving her along these last couple of years, it's been this sort of hope, and it would seem to me a vain hope of keeping the conservative party together. And then the third thing, of course, is that British politics are immensely tribal, and the idea that these other party leaders are going to come particularly Jeremy Corbyn from the labor party the idea he's gonna come to the rescue all their games comes to the rescue of someone who they see as. As a sort of weak and desperate rival. It seems to me as rather unlikely. Uttam you're in Brussels. The is apparently making preparations at least for article fifty to be extended were the UK requested. How dismayed a Europe's leaders by what they see happening in UK politics at the moment. I think preparations for extending article fifty in delaying Brexit, maybe putting it too strongly is definitely being talked about it speculated about and people are thinking about it. But I think actually it's not as far as properly laying the groundwork to make it happen yet. And of course, it would only happen. The you says the UK requested it, and it is absolutely not British government policy to delay Brexit from the infamous day to the twenty ninth of March twenty nineteen in terms of dismay again, that's quite the right word. There was surprise certainly amongst the EU officials. I was watching meaningful vote with the audibly gasped when the size of the defeat became clear. The EU knew it was coming though. And so they had time to write their scripts for their. Response, and it was a scripts because then it got leaks to me as often happens in the year. And the script was this is a British problem. We regret that you voted this deal done is the only deal on the table. Get your house in order and come back to us with a plan that you think will get through parliament. That's where the EU has stayed since many of the conservative party's fears over the future deal with Europe involve the so-called backstop for the island of Ireland to prevent new border checks being necessary between the north which is part of the United Kingdom south an independent country, which will remain part of the EU many worried that those checks or something that could bring about a return to the battle days of violence. His Emma Vardi in Belfast. There was apprehension on both sides of the Irish border leading up to the vote.

Britain's cabinet ministers will meet together on Wednesday to sign off from the proposed. Brexit withdrawal agreement. A government source says the British Prime Minister Theresa may will be meeting her ministers individually in a few hours time, rob Watson reports. This looks like an historic moment in the Brexit process an agreement on Britain's withdrawal from the EU would avoid the feared chaos of a no deal exit next March.

"Get this close to thanksgiving. I was remember talking to rob Watson over Watson insurance. About a story this this is talk about having the right insurance for your specific situation. And that's what Watson does whether it's a business or whether you're individual house, auto, whatever the case may be. They get to know you. They get to know your business. They get to know your circumstances. They make sure you have the right insurance for your particular set of circumstances that two years ago right before thanksgiving Roberts told me a story about a family that experience their worst nightmare for AM in the morning. They wake up houses on fire. Everybody gets out safe even the dog, but the house is almost a total loss. And eventually they figured out. They had an electrical issue. They had insurance with Watson insurance. Rob Watson was out of town that day. But he gets the call. He gets his team to work for the family right away. And they're on the scene at eight A M, four hours after that fire started eight AM in the morning Watson is there helping that family, and that's the Watson way. And that's not only having the right insurance for your particular circumstances. But that's how they take care of their customers. If you have an eight hundred number to get anything, insurance wise or information that eight hundred number is not going to be standing in your front yard at eight o'clock in the morning. So here's what that homeowner had to say about their experience with Watson Watson was with me. Every step of the way seemed like my claim was their only claim they cared about us getting our house rebuilt, but they really cared about me and my family, and we think that this will never happen to us. But when it does it's nice to have Watson, go above and beyond. I'm so glad that we had him on our side Watson insurance. Three offices in North Carolina. One office in South Carolina column. Local call somebody will pick up one eight hundred the number to go Watson..
