welcome to the program britain's prime minister has outlined what he said is his final offer to brussels on the terms of a deal for the u.k.'s departure from the european union boris johnson was addressing his conservative party's conference in the northern english city of manchester one of the biggest stumbling blocks in negotiations has been how to prevent a hog border between northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and the republic of ireland which is in the e.u. mr johnson's new proposals have not been conveyed to brussels and he says they represent a compromise on the u.k. form a position. today in brussels we are taping what i believe are constructive and reasonable proposals which provide a compromise for both sides we will under no circumstances have checks at or near the border in northern ireland. thank you will the
7:02 pm
old we will respect the peace process and the the good friday agreement. and and and by and by a process of renewable democratic consent by the executive and the assembly of northern ireland we will go further and protect the existing regulatory arrangements for farmers and businesses on both sides of the border and at the same time we will allow the u.k. whole and entire to withdraw from the e.u. with control over our own trade policy from the start. let's go to manchester then where the conservatives are holding a party conference joint correspondent barbara faisal welcome barbara what more do we know about this new british plan. we know that this plan goes vaguely
7:03 pm
roughly in the direction that early e.u. proposal had been that is it creates a regulatory special zone in northern ireland that was originally called the only northern island only backstop backstop because it was supposed to stop a hard border between the the republic and northern ireland no we're not supposed to call it that anymore by penalty off the last however let's call it the proposal it is relatively similar to that so it is something that the e.u. has already agreed could be a possible solution now as we know and have stressed many times the devil here is indeed in the detail there are many small of things an extra rules that sort of need to be examined and looked at by the general drift off this could be something that could lead possibly if everything goes well to in agreement between the e.u.
7:04 pm
and london the brics it has split parties there is a spade a spade yeah what how has this proposal being received within the conservatives. now it seems that the p. the informal coalition partner is somehow more or less agreeing to it even though we don't really know whether if i understood what they're signing up to punt 1st ascent to dissent votes of dissent or voices of dissent are being heard from within the party steve baker for instance one of the hardest hardline greats accuse the current so-called spartan said yes but there are other things in there was wrong agreement that they don't like and that would need to be changed now there is absolutely no time because there's more or less 10 days left to negotiate in this sort of undo the whole was to draw agreement that goes for both sides know the northern irish solution can probably be dealt with it within
7:05 pm
a week or 10 days but the rest will just have to be swallowed whole by boris johnson's hardliners or maybe not and he will have to find a scent and voice votes on the side of the labor party so if this new prime is a version of an old brussels plan it does sound like a brussels will have something to think about i'm not going to reject this out right. now there certainly not going to reject this outright they will say we need to examine it we will look at it they have to talk to ireland and did the government and dublin whether they think this is sufficient because of course it does have a downside that is that britain wants to have northern ireland out of the customs union too so that means there would have to be certain border checks and customs checks but they wouldn't have to be done exactly on the border they could be in harbors or somewhere back in the country so solutions could probably be found for
7:06 pm
that so they will get sort of look at this very closely and figure out is there enough space for this is a face saving compromise call both sides that is also workable particularly workable for northern ireland will it keep the peace there and island will keep the peace there and will let both sides keep their difficult struggle for their difficult and special identity. thank you. now we'll take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world hundreds of pro-democracy activists of gathered in hong kong to demonstrate against a police shooting during tuesday's protests and 18 year old protest of a shot at close range after he attacked an officer with a metal bar the incident marks a significant escalation of tension since anti china protests began 4 months ago. supporters of saudi german's jamal khashoggi have called for justice at a memorial events near the saudi consulate in istanbul where he was killed 11
