4:08 pm
it. the leading cause of the fog. you feel like taking the 35 and i will never longer. and that was a british prime minister i spoke to our correspondents a shala thoughts in london and technicians in brussels and i began by asking charlotte 1st what was at stake and bottom line today after a feisty debate absolutely a very heated debate there 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 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 parliament 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
4:09 pm
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 should go to the european union and ask for an extension and this time around that would be until january 31st so a 3 month extension and boris johnson if this bill is successful would have to ask the european union for that and terry engrosses what do these developments in london mean for the e.u. and preparations for braggs it. you saw it still continues to say that it is waiting on london to get its mind made to quell all this chaos and come back to brussels with a clear plan on how it wants to approach bracks and on whether it truly will fly 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 of 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 is no deal of of what new labeling you know requirements there will be of what new localization rules may or may apply to workers of even how there will be differences in how their private data is treated if britain crosses out without a deal so here they're basically going on worst case scenario that nothing will be arranged rhinestone issues in brussels and the shell of plants in london thank you both very much. and to make sense of what is happening in the house of commons and in british politics to i thought i have a list of this for us watching with me hi alex looked at us what alternatives does boris johnson still have to get his way or you think he would still be trying to
4:11 pm
put pressure on those who represent peace but last night he set those rebel m.p.'s 21 of them 20 of whom used 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 opposition and there will be a lot of pressure put on by government to try to persuade those conservative lords 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 week 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 all convention boris johnson and his team could try
4:12 pm
to slow down that process it doesn't get a cent 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 over the past few days i don't it's very clear he does but 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 he'll have to get the live a body to support him with the leader of the labor party jim mccoll would agree 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 bret'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 and particularly those on his front bench but also by all the parties the
4:13 pm
scottish nationalists in scotland that 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 who have very strong a will and hit any date that he's set so there is still a lot to play for with in parliament. wanting to thank you very much for shedding light on this rather complicated issue at the moment to south africa now with these 5 things that have been killed in dr taha getting migrant workers and foreign owned businesses is the latest outbreak of violence against immigrants in johannesburg and pontiff are trying to that he too wants foreign workers in the country president saddam has condemned the attacks taking to the streets to vent their frustration against foreigners starting on sunday mobs of protesters turned violent

4:16 pm
threatened that they're going to come in numbers and it was big to try and loot again because they are saying what in the us had killed 2 of their own people last night but for now it is coming into the center so most is driving this wave of violence. if you speak to most of these people that they will change to that. foreigners are taking their employment unemployment in south africa is very high of a 27 percent or they they say they believe if foreigners go they are going to take over the jobs that the foreigners are waking now some of them are saying before now is up to take in trucks here they are trucks and she has been pretoria and they believe that the foreigners up behind that and some of them will tell you that to most of these foreigners i legally in the country so they want them to go but reports it was rights organizations that came out in a press conference a a yesterday saying no it is the government officials that are speaking and to michael in sentiments and these people are just getting out instructions they
