but if we fail once again on the 3rd time to leave the e.u. after a stated date that has been given by our prime minister then perhaps support for the brics policy not only returns to that 20 percent but source beyond it that's got to be the fear for the conservative party right now the reason is the situation is fast moving in the u.k. it's most likely we're going to see an extension of the e.u. deadline do you think that the europeans would be receptive to any demands by the by by the british government over the coming days. one of costs not a foregone conclusion because basically you would need unanimous approval in the opium council to get an extension so even a single country could feed to it how about i do think that this is quite unlikely for 2 reasons fast because i think you need us do not want to be seen. trade as being the one step to get a new defects that that would have very severe consequences both political both
politically and economically for many member states especially island and 2nd. it looks like a general election is an effort to move sooner or later the year i think the only question is when it takes place and i think that might be another reason for that you to grant the u.k. an extension because after an election. brings with it the possibility of political change and even if the conservatives are leading of the poets in the points at the moment the state of the possibility that. it's a genuine election which change the composition of parliament and therefore make an autonomy withdrawing more likely and i think for those 2 reasons the e.u. i think would be quite i'm likely to refuse an extension. what interesting the tactics played by both keep parties in the u.k. now the labor seem to be now willing 1st of all to aim for the top priority which is to freeze any attempt by johnson to go for a deal for
a break that with or without a deal then they are willing to negotiate another agreement about the election why is the labor walking down that particular path. i think because they fear. if you have an even of october 31st bricks election but boris johnson would be able to build unstoppable momentum because he could pose as mr bracks it the man who brought everyone were exit at the helm of the vote leave referendum bus and he could appeal as alex has brought up to tory voters to relievers especially that party voters and also try and keep tory remain as who are less keen on bricks are on board by saying if you don't vote for me you have that crypto marxist jeremy corbin walking into downing street who by the way let's remember is so unpopular in parliament. the rival parties could not agree on
him as an alternative prime minister he is so unpopular among the general public a recent poll found that actually more people prefer the liberal democrat leader joe swenson as an alternative prime minister to jeremy corbin and incidentally the actual prime minister abbas johnson is leagues ahead of both of them at 45 percent compared to about 20 percent and so given this you know the jobs would have a very compelling campaign to fight if he was doing on the eve of brecht's it in the meantime of course if labor managed to delay bracks it string it out perhaps get this law passed and then sit there making sure that no elections approved yet they could run down the clock wait till middle of october see boris johnson shout and scream as he tries to do everything he can maybe even resign and then maybe not to avoid having to ask so they back set and that point his singular a man october 31st would shatter uphill struggle as an election campaign to fight at that point a late all but labor exit the vanguard election so be very much labor's to win at
that point alex but don't you see that mr johnson by his move is further undermining the conservative party look at the statements made yesterday the reactions from philip herman cain clarke the rebels you get the impression that the conservative party is about to crumble. no i don't have that sense actually of course the people you are naming are no longer conservative m.p.'s they're still in the house but they don't take the what we call the whip they don't take the discipline of the conservative party anymore and they all therefore unable to stand as members of parliament for the conservative party again they will be able to stand of course for any other party or indeed as independents but just not for the party that got them elected last time this strengthens boris johnson's hand in any potential election because in their seats which are overwhelmingly very safe conservative seats there will be new conservative candidates chosen and those candidates will be far more likely to support boris johnson than those who've
already demonstrated that they absolutely won't that is to say they didn't just vote against their tory policy they voted for a government to be denied the leaves of power for the control of the house of commons to be passed in state to the opposition on the explicit basis that they would then give that power to the european union either for an extension or if we can agree an extension take whatever extension the e.u. gives us this is the worst possible signal for parliament to send to the e.u. why would the e.u. negotiate with us at in any meaningful way if they know that we're just going to have extension after extension and effectively stay in so no i think it strengthens boris's hand to have new m.p.'s in those seats the reason why is the e.u. saying that it will not bend on any of the demands made by the johnson of the over there was given to minister to some may still stands all the table that could be the best way out to an orderly exit from the e.u. . was the main point of contention is the back supply
the i was fought on and the sort of concept i mean the problem for the us really is at the sort of concessions stop to accept the one that and they include peg limiting the backstop to automata fi allowing the u.k. to withdraw from it unilaterally the problem is start from the us that this giving in to those concessions would basically on the mind the basic functioning off the back so because and influence policy that this time limited is not an insurance policy from that use perspective and that's why it simply cannot give in to those demands what they you i think could do and is willing to do would be to consider. tonnage has a range of months to the backstop if they are viable and if they fully fit the same objectives after the backstop and the problem is that it doesn't get it back and they are trying to define range ments has been found and can be found so that fundamentally it's a problem and when we have set up
a backstop issue it's not just about. the border what having a vote on no bought on the island of ireland it's really it really touches very very fundamental issues all of the you'll like so that out of tea for example and because it's really about the question without you member states support a smaller member state if it's 5 to interests are threatened against the comic interests of a soon to be thought country and if you're some of the phrases and those times then it becomes an entirely different issue and. it's i think become so much and even of a member states a thing. can done see a bit more easily why it's so important as they stand behind ireland because they might need you so modality at some point in the future too and they wouldn't want the member states to abandon them so. i think that's really why that yukon i see
your point given to accept yes demand on the backstop say was quite interesting when boris johnson was basically saying that he would use his negotiating skill to be able to change the u.s. position when it comes to the northern ireland border do you think that the backstop ill turn it into something still possible against the backdrop of the drama that is unfolding in the u.k. oh it's still possible but obviously the e.u. has to genuinely believe it is deliverable in westminster the changes that the boris johnson would seek because really what's governing all this is the parliamentary refer to can the house of commons in that just go about 3 and may for a 2nd when she tried to get a deal done to change the backstop and everything around it about 3 times now she was had to deal rejected and so e.u. leaders tried every time to change it just enough rejected again and now we see that clearly boris johnson is struggling to get anything through parliament and
then peas are running rampant able to tie his hands on no deal and so it's no wonder your leaders aren't really taking the goetia seriously because then i think nothing would pass this parliament especially when some euro skeptics say in the same breath that even if the backstop was taken out they would still want more. seem to to be saying basically that you don't think that this is something which is going to further undermine but it's just on the culture this is something which is going to consolidate his power base there is the god of the if he decides to go or if we have an election he will definitely have to be very aggressive to be able to bite into the boa base of the briggs it party but by doing that don't you think that he could just further undermine the remaining within the conservative party itself. there is a balance to be struck you're right but i think boris has already enough to draw away much of the strength of the bricks at parties electoral appeal at least in the
present time before the 31st of october he's demonstrated he's serious about bret's it and doesn't want to take no deal off the table i really see british politics is like this the divide on the broadly speaking right between the tory party in the brics it party is a smaller one that is to say the tory party has done well to take much more of that vote in the current environment than the divide on the left between the labor party in the liberal democrats where whatever you think of the lib dems have a crystal clear position on bricks if they don't want it and the labor party has been to and fro on what they think about this and where they are in our membership of the european union in that circumstance i think that boris does very well at an election with a more broadly unified right and a more generally divided left and that's why he feels so positive about the prospect of an election what. kind of impact is this political drama in the u.k. having on the e.u. leadership because sometimes you get the impression he's trying to stay away and
comment only when he's suddenly about one of the key contentious issues between the u.k. and the e.u. . yeah i mean that you have to way to try to stay out of the oil u.k. domestic political drama basically since even since before the west. it didn't get too involved in the referendum campaign and even in the past 3 years it has really tried to stay our i'm not sure that the current political drama really have to bake off an effect on that you would need us because basically i think what you need as the main question is can there be an orderly withdrawal off the u.k. and if so when can it and all this drama at the moment we're not really getting closer to a visit lucian off the fundamental question or on facts that is there going to be again no idea or it's going to take a 50 go in to be revoked and that is the fundamental decision that needs to be made
and at the moment all this political drama i think is just so it's basically just kicking the can from around the world. i think one of the things that many people would say agree about when it comes to the u.k. of this particular moment is absolutely no clarity about the future just give you an example the lived for example of for anything that would stop the brig's that this interview would say that this is going to further give scotland. the right to go for independence the labor we know the dithering when it comes to how to move forward the conservatives seem to be divided than ever is britain suddenly or is it because of the 2016 choice intrigue an unprecedented political stage. well look the reason why it seems that our political class of being so inept about this is because the government doesn't have the numbers to get anything through this parliament and the same time you have an opposition in the labor party who
seem to be increasingly pandering to remain as never really accepted the deal and some labor m.p.'s for example a good few dozen who rejected the original deal several times and are now turning around having found that they will turn to the await them are even with us sort of breaks it over no deal bricks it or just trying again maybe selling out their voters so who actually voted leave me mother liberal democrats then you know that at least they have some sincerity of just hating bricks it never liking it in the same way the s.n.p. do as well and so they just they they can't really seem to decide whatever they want at all even with a general election you have jeremy corbyn in one breath saying our prime minister is a dictator and that his have followers feel that a coup has taken place thanks doris johnson but no they they don't want to go back to the people just yet because that would be just improper the other things have to happen so it's no wonder then bar johnson is so desperately keen for a new parliament thank you thank you very much indeed it will be really interesting

a military coup in 27. has more from johannesburg. a few weeks ago as the bobbies government issued a statement and say that robert mugabe was in singapore for longer than usual there was a scientist many zimbabweans that something is wrong when his body returns from singapore likely in a couple of days people get an idea of when the funeral is going to be leaders and the readings on it here party say mcgarvey was the founder of zimbabwe they're going to give him a respectful sendoff and a state funeral order probably happen is when the body gets back to zimbabwe it will lie in state for a couple of days and might even do some tours across the country especially his home village in after that he appeared at the national heroes acre in the capital harare that's where a lot of people who fought in the liberation war who fought in the water and white minority rule have been buried his gravesite is marked number one
a sign officials say is a sign of respect we also expecting several african leaders to attend the funeral remember in africa they were seen mainly as a liberator they say he helped end white minority rule he helped many other countries gain independence and he was brave enough to take land from white a white minority and give it to black people he's a hero to some people and he's a villain for frustrated zimbabweans many of them who are now living outside the country many of them economic migrants many of them who are undocumented say they blame him and his rulings on it here party for ruining what was once a prosperous country but his supporters say that they will give mugabe a huge send of in a couple of days and will always be remembered as the founding father of zimbabwe. was year there mixed feelings about the former leader in zimbabwe's capital harare as well. as a leader the only thing he did wrong was to stay in power for
a long time and that's the only thing that wasn't right go to. the move the moment he's a former president and he liberated us from the colonialists as well as giving us land form of the. revolutionary guard. they after he committed this because nobody really cared for some of the. britons high court has rejected a challenge to prime minister boris johnson's planned suspension of parliament the ruling comes as johnson continues his campaign for a snap election before the october 31st breaks it deadline he is pushing for an election because parliament will likely prevent him from legally leaving the european union without a deal a train stations been closed in hong kong as hundreds of protesters gather there they're demanding the release of security camera footage of while and confrontation between police and protesters at the prince edward station last weekend police

it's not on the last world cup level. never in sport has cheating been so prevalent at the highest level. never has the pharmacological range of performance enhancing drugs been so great. that something new and it that this is should be spotted by the cycling football power sports injury in sports technical schools doping is only present no discipline escapes unscathed but where do these products come from how does this underground activity work. till armitage but certainly it's also weighed in a committee galaxy most of these to keep you busy they have to shift. the styles of high performance schools can spend up to $100000.00 euros a year on state of the art treatments that are often still under development. the extreme growth of the sports business is gendered

rare to find out leads willing to talk about doping. where starting instigation that things parts could i talk to no i'm sorry i have no comment to make nothing to say about that. telling and only to say well yes it will happen to me front door being shown in the pub and. he. hunted invited by the notion that nobody will talk about this please stop calling every day when a car ferry think thanks but. the subject is to. come to london as you said you know that certain things about in fact i'm always. up.
