12:05 pm
britain's finest to bars johnson is bracing for the showdown and bottom line today all the suffering the defeat always brags that strategy. no make has voted to seize control of parliament business of this that allowed them to vote on legislation today to prevent the u.k. from crashing out of the e.u. without a deal at the end of october johnson has responded by saying he scored a snap election board. with boris johnson's 1st parliamentary votes as british prime minister and he lost it all the good strong powers the far east to the right story 128 the news to the left 301 so we know you have it oh you have it oh no we're going to johnson was hit by a huge rebellion among his own conservative m.p.'s 21 of them joined the opposition to seize the bricks agenda costing johnson he's working majority they're trying to
12:06 pm
pass a law that would delay the u.k.'s takes it from the e.u. and prevent annoying deal breaks it johnson insists a deal or no deal grex it will happen on october the 30. 1st he says he has no option now but to call for an early general election. i do want to mention pretty please vote tomorrow to stop the go she shoots and to compel i'm not the point of this delay to brit's potentially for you that would be the only way to resolve this who johnson could struggle to get a 2 thirds majority needed to approve an early poll opposition leader jeremy coburn has long called for elections but now says he wants a great of them until the end he neuer deal bill passes the general election there is no consent in this house to leave the european union without a deal i know
12:07 pm
a majority for no deal in the conference on wednesday the crossed party alliance will introduced a bill to july breaks it with october 31 just weeks away all the turmoil and political maneuvering is only stoking more confusion about how and when breaks it will happen i. shall have thoughts in london and a bureau chief in brussels. starting with you in our shot of boris johnson is heading for another showdown what's expected to happen in parliament today. but it's going to be another extraordinary day here in london we are expecting a vote on the bill that would force boris johnson to seek a delay another delay to breakfast said this time until january 31st and if this bill is successful which we are expecting it will be then it will move to
12:08 pm
the house of law lords and will become law and that's what falls johnson's head in that case boris johnson has already said that he will seek a general election because of course we have to remember he has already. lost his majority in parliament and now he says he believes that he has lost his leverage to negotiate with the european union as well if parliament indeed felt bits him to seek a no deal so he is seeking a general election and we are expecting a vote on that as well later today of course this general election will be something that we'll be keeping a very close eye on him and london and max what's the deal the and brussels what do these dramatic and somewhat chaotic developments in london mean for the e.u. and its federations for banks it thing is you have 2 parallel strains here and read the 1st one of course is that they continue officially at
12:09 pm
least the negotiations with the u.k. on possible alternatives to the so-called backstop something that's been a stumbling block in the past the backstop being of course the insurance policy against a hard border between northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland which is part of the european union but officially the e.u. diplomats here are telling us they're not really getting any alternative proposals from the u.k. and all those brags that negotiator brags that envoy that is here in brussels at the moment says they're making good progress on the other side brussels says really are we we are not because the u.k. really isn't making any proposals and so that's why more and more people here think that the only goal that boris johnson and his administration are pursuing at the moment is a no deal breck's it so they are preparing for that and they're going to decide new preparedness measures today on wednesday here in brussels in that direction i shant the writhings going that is an election in the u.k.
12:10 pm
inevitably. it very well seems like it i think the question is just how and when we're seeing a general election we've heard it before boris johnson needs a majority in parliament to actually call a general election at the moment of the labor opposition is saying they are not going to support this call for a general election tonight because they want to see this building johnson to seek a no deal they want to see that through in the house of lords once that is tossed they would be for a general election so we could see that later on this week but then the question is also on the when a general election happens boris johnson says he would hold a general election on october 15th so shortly before that big e.u. summit where the u.k. is scheduled to talk all things again with the european union parliament that is
12:11 pm
afraid. myatt now say that it is october 15th but then actually when parliament is in recess push that date back to november 1st election date and that would mean that the u.k. has already left the european union as mark said. europeans are convinced that he's serious about a no deal but opposition parties him parliament also very. also believing that he's very serious about this and that is something that they have very worried about that he would push that election date back in any case a general election of course would be a referendum on it once again and that is a question that has really divided the british public over the last year and that's it looks increasingly likely that the u.k. may ask for not the extension of the deadline if that happens will the. deadline. it looks like that this is really in the cards for 2 reasons even if you have a general election election you don't know who's going to be the new prime minister
12:12 pm
and new prime minister might need some time to figure things out here in this what many people call mess and of course then you have what's passing probably going to pass the house of commons today that would actually force bars johnson of the prime minister to ask for an extension but the question is correct of course but because the e.u. is not necessarily interested in what what is happening in the house of commons or what the house of commons even decides even if they decide you wanted extension the e.u. needs to granted otherwise we will have a drags it on the 31st of october and if you remember what happened in april back then how hard it was to get that 1st extension because that was the original date for braggs and then you know it's going to be extremely difficult especially because of the french president call who seems very much opposed to it and we can say with some sort of 2 that he would only give his approval if he really sees a realistic chance that within that extension period things in the u.k.
12:13 pm
actually have a chance of turning around or getting sorted out right next. to their chief and seanna thoughts in london thank you both very much for sharing at this at that. we have lots of live coverage coming for you from london as well as from brussels during the day that we now bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the blood russian president vladimir putin has met indian prime minister in that interim with me for talks on boosting trade and investment the 2 met in the run up to the eastern economic forum that russia is hosting in the last hour which aims to both step on the ships with asian countries. to have valid to demand the release of media tycoon and presidential candidate now be godly this author of course on tuesday rejects in the peta freak and some shady country was arrested on money laundering charges and oldest shortly
