3:02 pm
administrative region will officially withdraw the bill and eradicate the ruiz of the people the security chief will propose and motion to withdraw on the bill after the legislative meeting is back. to what i saw on what happened in the last 2 months has shocked and saddened the hong kong people and made everyone worried and upset about hong kong. everyone is worried and hopes to resolve the current situation i got the whole tilt up hey ma it's on the flights and for the very latest i'm joined now by william yang in hong kong will a surprise statement by hong kong need to carry law what do you make of it and why is it coming it coming out now do you think. so i'm retired as we know tensions on the streets of hong kong has been really escalating over the last few weeks and this whole movement has been on. people have been coming out for 13 weeks in a row so the government is worried that if this continues to go on the way that it
3:03 pm
is right now hong kong society is really going to fall apart and the a growth law is really going to be nonexistent anymore so they believe that this is the easiest way for the government to seize the anger with being hunk of civil society right now a prominent pro-democracy activist joshi along came out today saying that lambs announcement was a little too little too late this listen to some of what to what he had to say we didn't do that claire that our protests must call that you know 1st of all the child has a national day we strongly aware of the tactics behind beijing government beijing and chinese authorities just strike you don't approach as i've been saying it's such a droll withdrawal. at best just throw a strategy for beijing hope to. reduce the number of participants protests in the next few weeks and it's especially on the 1st of october. so with them
3:04 pm
a judge one says all of this is just a strategy where do you see this going what needs to happen for these protests to end. so many reactions have come out of popular social media platforms and telegram and as well as a pro-democracy legislators have also come out to basically a highlight the fact that the withdrawal of the bill does not really solve all the demands that the protesters making over the last 3 months they have made by demands and this is only one of them so the most important thing right now they believe is what the governments are to really address the issue of police brutality which has really played with the hong kong civil society at the moment. mainly jewish 11 has such an open marriage as a german johnson lamech of today all skinful has what does he expect from her. so as we know uncle necker is expecting to meet chinese president xi jinping very
3:05 pm
soon and hong kong protesters have been very good at. rallying support from international communities so i think he is using this open letter as a chance to really push the german chancellor to really. raise the issue of hong kong and then express her concern over the situation right now to the chinese president. ride a william yang in hong kong thank you very much for the latest on the developments there. to the u.k. now where fans to bars johnson is facing a 2nd showdown in parliament over his bedsit strategy he's demanding a snap election on the 15th of october should normally try to prevent a nodal breck's act johnson says such a bill would undermine the country's ability to negotiate with the european union but the e.u. says it hasn't received any new proposals from britain to break the backs of debt. now here's some of what boris johnson had to say in the house of commons is
3:06 pm
a short while ago in response to a question from the leader of the labor party jeremy corben. the only thing that standing is standing you know in our way is the undermining of a geisha and by this surrender bill which would be to move and we delayed in march we delayed it a bit and now we want to do it he wants to delay good for absolutely no purpose whatever what is he intended by that we are spending in this government spending a 1000000000 pounds to put 20000 new police officers on the street was he was. able to speed up the legal problems i'm not only had 50000 you feeling ok but a 35 and i will never allow that. stuff was the british prime minister i spoke to our correspondents seana thoughts in london and teri schultz in brussels and i began by asking what was at stake in parliament today very heated debate there
3:07 pm
again questions and answers form for boris johnson there and one thing we can say is that parliament is just extremely divided there are those that want to break 3rd those that are against breck said those that want a 2nd referendum those that want break said but are opposed to no deal and it remains that palmer. it is extremely divided now one thing that they do seem to be able to rally behind is the bill that is on the table today and that would prevent boris johnson from from taking the country out of the european union without a deal on october 31st so this bill would basically force boris johnson to go to the european union and ask for an extension and this time around that will be until january 31st so a 3 month extension and boris johnson if this bill is successful would have to ask
3:08 pm
the european union for that and to me in brussels what do these developments in london mean for the e.u. in preparations for braggs it. you saw it still continues to say that it is waiting on london to get its mind made up to to quell all this chaos and come back to brussels with a clear plan on how it wants to approach her exit on whether it truly will try to get out on october 31st and that's very much up in the air but in the meantime the european union is basically preparing for a hard for preparing there to be a departure of british the british government with no deal and toward that end today it released what it's calling its final preparedness checklist it's reminding everyone in the other 27 e.u. countries businesses and citizens alike of what it will mean if there's no deal of what new labeling you know requirements there will be of what new localization rules may or may apply to workers and even how there will be differences in how
3:09 pm
their private data is treated if britain crosses out without a deal so here there are basically going on worst case scenario that nothing will be arranged rhinestone issues in brussels and once in london thank you very much. and to make sense of what is happening in the house of commons and in british politics try to have a list of this for us watching with me hi alex so tell us what alternatives does boris johnson still have to get his way or you think he would still be trying to put pressure on those weapon m.p.'s but last night he said those rebel m.p.'s 21 of them 20 of whom needs to be ministers for the conservative party so he can put pressure on them it looks like it is going to go through the house of commons tonight but it still then has to go through the house of lords that's the 2nd chamber the opposite and there will be a lot of pressure put on by government to try to persuade those conservative lords
3:10 pm
to what's called filibuster to keep talking to try to talk this out so that it doesn't become law because everything is about timing this weight next week remember parliament is suspended that is what was decided by the government last week so it is all about timing if it goes through the house of lords it still needs to have what's called royal assent that means it has to be signed off by the queen now that is the possibility that against or convention boris johnson and his team could try to slow down that process which doesn't get sent by friday and when the suspension the prioritization happens that bill is no longer around full so there is still much that he can do his main thing he wants though as he keeps saying is a general election despite having said it in the past few days i don't it's very clear he does that can he get it he needs 2 thirds of m.p.'s in parliament just support him on that exactly and to get the stupid of m.p.'s you have to get the
3:11 pm
live a body just support him with the leader of the labor party jeremy coleman agreed to that a very good question and at the moment it's very clear he wants a general election but at the moment he doesn't seem to be hearing to that core from boris johnson because they are sticking by. this rebel alliance is saying we've got to get this no deal breck's it bill through parliament before we can start talking about an election but pressure is on him not least from his own m. pays him particularly those on his front bench but also by all the parties the scottish nationalists in scotland they're desperate for an election and they will be putting pressure on jeremy corbyn to say yes we'll go for an election but we need to say what the data is the problem is can they guarantee that boris johnson or his those people around him a very strong a will and here to any date that is set there is still a lot to play for with in parliament right on its finest wanting to thank you very
3:12 pm
