president. and a disaster in the making in the world's oceans scientists on the un climate panel wound up and tired of threats to humanity rising sea levels super strong flooding and more drop. out of a will continue on with that shima in london the house of commons has got back to walk after the supreme court the prime minister abbas johnson of parliament was unlawful and void johnson flew home from the united nations in new york overnight and is back in his official residence number 10 downing street meanwhile members of parliament are getting down to business in the chamber the speaker of the house has said they really be full scope for urgent. yes sions mysterious statements and

applications for emergency debates the government meanwhile is planning to put a general election back on the table just a short while ago the attorney general geoffrey cox addressed the house of commons he rejected calls to resign and said the government was disappointed with the supreme court's ruling. the government accepts. the judgment and dick separate across the case at all charges the government acted in good faith . did in the belief that its approach was both no food constitution. but we were disappointed they didn't hear the supreme court took a different view and of course we respect their judgment difficult. to london and indeed of these big it must begin it's back to business in the
4:03 pm
british parliament m.p.'s have been debating for just about 3 hours now what's been happening there. absolute absolutely tumultuous scenes of rita and palm and m.p.'s incredibly angry at various johnson at the government demanding the publication of the legal advice that has been given to boris johnson which he then obviously took to the queen in order to ask for their power to provoke parliament but also we have seen the government quite defiant for example the attorney general who gave this legal advice that this was going to be lawful to suspend parliament and he said that parliament is cowardly for not agreeing to a general election at this point so i find that quite astonishing actually that there is a real split between a lot of angry m.p.'s angry at the government and the government themselves who have been well quite defiant really and it's also interesting that the attorney general in 5th that the suspension of parliament was still constitutional and legal
4:04 pm
no job boris johnson is back in london but he still hasn't appeared in parliament what kind of reception do you think he'll get when he arrives there. well given the fact it was already really quite wild here in parliament without those joints and you can only imagine when he is there where so many m.p.'s have been so angry that they were basically dispense of the job they were sent are on a holiday without actually wanting to do it they want to hold the government to account and now they have 4 as johnson who they held responsible for just sending them away and and he's somebody that has acted unlawfully a prime minister acts as unlawfully they were the mind is a resignation opposition figures will demand his resignation but so far boris johnson and the government is sitting tight because i think we have to wait until more cabinet ministers and also other m.p.'s of the conservative party are joining in but so far it seems that the conservative party at least what is left of it
4:05 pm
because several m.p.'s have already left the party but the conservative party here in parliament is standing behind boris johnson at least for the moment and make it one of the options now for boris johnson to deliver on break that on the 31st off with johnson in 50 will do or die. yes yes he has said that he will in any case deliver breaks it i think the chances that some form of agreement with the can in the end go through parliament have slightly increased because of what's going on here and all the chaos surrounding breaks and i think there will be a lot of m.p.'s that will be quite afraid that if there is no deal made with the that also they then accept here in parliament that the chances of unregulated regs of just going without any deal with the e.u. will increase so i think most likely because johnson will go to brussels and maybe
4:06 pm
we'll have to see at the end of october when he then comes back and most likely presents something that he might have been great with brussels or it could be the exactly the other way that he is leaving there goes the asians with crosses and says he can't agree on anything and then all bets are off and most likely a general election is going to follow leaving at the end of october like he has said do or die we'll see if that's really happening the biggest mass just outside the british parliament reporting from london thank you very much for that human rights groups in egypt say that more than a 1000 people have been arrested in a crackdown after protests against the rule of president of the assisi hundreds of demonstrators gathered in cairo and other cities last friday after online course cc's. he ceased power in 2013 man the military took over from the democratically
4:07 pm
elected muslim brotherhood president mohamed morsi. so. joining me now on the line from cairo is correspondent ruth michelson non-governmental organizations say more than a 1000 demonstrators were arrested that's a huge number what more can you tell us about the arrests. well we've heard that 1438 people have got arrested accused according to one kyra base angio the egyptian commission for rights and freedoms. and that those they come from all in 20 areas across the country what we've seen so far is that these were peaceful demonstrators but also many many bystanders who just happen to have been mere demonstrators that took place we also unfortunately know that the egyptian authorities have since rounded up many prominent opposition figures in advance of these protests that are expected on friday that so far into the well known human rights lawyer who was
4:08 pm
representing the demonstrators in court and at least 3 opposition figures today. protests are becoming rare in egypt under this government one drove people to take to the streets now well absolutely i mean i think it's 1st important to remember that protesting is essentially illegal in egypt and so those that are going out into the street are risking their lives to do so now the call to protest from an exiled military contractor called muhammad ali who is based in barcelona and released videos and their massive corruption by the egyptian military he called for protests last friday and has called for a 1000000 person march this friday but it's also important to remember that this is less about paul and more about the message of how corruption has resonated strongly with the egyptian people this is given that an estimated 32.5 percent of people in
4:09 pm
egypt live below the poverty line and with a lot is the security situation like in the capital cairo where you are. well downtown cairo is essentially on lockdown there is a huge security presence around tahrir square including riot police to her square was the site of the protest of the revolution in 2011 i've also heard reports that street elsewhere in the country saw a protest last weekend also filled with police and access to information has also become part of this crackdown so according to the west monitoring organization net blocks twitter skype. also has is the remains throttled inside of egypt and the b.b.c. website has also been blocked here due to allegedly inaccurate coverage of the demonstrations according to the egyptian media regulator. ruth michelson in cairo
4:10 pm
thank you very much for that update from there. let me now bring up to date with some of the stories making news around the world the german subsidiary of thomas cook has filed for insolvency following the collapse of its parent company earlier this week 140000 holidaymakers are currently traveling with the fam and other local affiliates it's still unclear how many customers will be affected. chinese president xi jinping has officially opened beijing's new mega air force the airport cost $16000000000.00 and has the world's biggest terminal building a starfish like structure designed by the late star architect. it will eventually handle $100000000.00 passengers per year more on that story coming up in business news so. a new u.n. report has issued the stock is warning get off a climate change catastrophe for the planet's seas predicting most super storms
4:11 pm
rising sea levels and ocean dead zones scientists from the intergovernmental panel on climate change say that while seas have been helping the planet cope with rising temperatures unprecedented overheating the ocean poses a huge threats to humanity. by about one meter by the end of the century if global warming doesn't slow down making some island nations on inhabitable. i.p.c.c. scientists say a failure to act on the new data will have grave consequences for the future of our planet the consequences for nature and humanity are sweeping and severe. this report highlights also the urgency of timely ambitious who are needed and enduring action. what is its stake is the health of ecosystems wildlife and
4:12 pm
importantly the world we leave for our children. environment department and joins me now with some very dire warnings in the i.p.c.c. . report which is just come out just how dire is the situation i think scientists agree that it is very very bad so we're saying a very comprehensive report that shows us that sees a woman see devils are rising and bear in mind this is happening faster and faster than even faster than we previously thought and on top of that version is becoming more acidic becoming less productive and the huge consequences for things like fish marine life call of reefs but more than just the oceans what this report highlights and the furries and parts of the planet say the north pole the himalayas the undie the alps all of these mountain region the high mountainous regions are all say on the severe threat from warming temperatures and that for anything huge amounts of
4:13 pm
water down into the and into the planet and so what are these changes which i detail in the report mean for people especially those people living in situations like indoor lying islands so these people are the most boner boats or the effects of rising sea levels and so on side one particular stock finding from the report. storms are going to get much much stronger so by 2050 they're expecting that the sorts of freak weather events that we maybe saw once a century should start happening once a year in some of these crystal cities and low lying islands and when you think about how an increasing percentage of the world population is living in these sorts of regions cities and megacities across africa asia that are on the cards they hugely threatened by this and on top of that small island nation that they're seeing sea levels rise increasingly they're losing the amount of land from which they can move to and. i think i mean one of the scientists said to me that i think
4:14 pm
in fiji every had instances of relocating communities because of rising sea levels so there's a certain asians do see to this problem what can be done in fact to deal with the situation again we do anything to address and change goals we set an economy the report lays out very clearly different policy options that government actions that government can take so one of the key things being true few things are of the being that we need to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and at the same time we need to adapt to the changing planet that's almost inevitable say in some great case of we're seeing these changes already happen and even if we are to cut emissions immediately we will still have sea levels rise a certain degree what that means is that we need to both cut emissions and create new infrastructure needed for instance to protect cars by building sea walls we need to do those things and under so clearly we have to adapt to rising ocean levels will more water is how well prepared i'll be for that with made some
4:15 pm
steps that would be i think foolish for anyone and the scientist and see the kind of claim that where to actually properly cope with it and particularly to protect the most vulnerable people in society the report says that we need really investment to the tunes of i think up to several hundreds of billions of dollars adequately protect our costs. but what it does say that by doing so we can really protect people from floods and reduce the risk of flood by the magnitude and to hundreds of times safe as it were and the clear implication for people that means that we're protecting governments would be protecting the livelihoods their health their ability to get clean water their ability to feed themselves and i think it's worth stressing in the report that this doesn't just affect the people living on price and the people living on islands the effects of any sort of sea level rise in extreme weather will ripple inland as well. yeah i think. it's something that we
4:16 pm
