in the bahamas harken dorian is causing unprecedented damage and destruction conditions are hampering rescue and recovery efforts and the death toll sadly is expected to rise . thank you very much for being with us boris johnson has lost a second vote this time by a bigger margin british lawmakers taking full with that rebel alliance. plan to block an ideal breaks at the so called ban bail. i miss johnson sixty was to try to call for an early general election on the bill let's start with that pro full by the labor mp hillary ban. sung by several conservatives aims to prevent and no deal brexit stand artery fifty that's the exit date. until john to the thirty first next year just to remind. you that
3:32 pm
is currently set for october. thirty first. the playbill has passed to the commons and goes to the lord's for proof. the jeremy corbyn warned that is at least a ninety to one hundred point for the bus to in store in the opera house. was johnson as expected then hit back after losing those well. three votes in two days with a motion for the general election he wants to go to the polls on october fifteenth. the rest t of the housuse. doesn't appear to be buying any of it. let's take a listen. to a- couple of comments officials were called. in my view. and the view of this government's. them is not to be an election. on tuesday the fifteenth of october. the gentleman to respond to decide which you bosco who's promises that crucial console on thursday the seventeenth of october is filled haaaas and gan royal assent then we will back at election so we do n not prpressure. with a no deal exit
3:33 pm
from the european. so much at stake unprecedented signs in british politics in many ways obobserving this for us i'm what a job she has benedicta via our correspondents in london a benedict when i think of breaks that i think if you because we talk about every point as it happens and it's always a pleasure to have you. on the program and can you begin by telling us more about the passage of the band built through the comments. yes sir what effectively we have off to that first defeat on the first day back. from the summer recess of mps yesterday. is as expected. and as a creed. the opposition seized control of parliamentary business so just shortly after three pm london time. what happened was that there was an emergency debate. there have been votes the votes is yet another dramatic day and defeat. for the prime minister's effectively force with records speeds because
3:34 pm
this normally takes a very long time. the drawful has cleared the house of commmmons. this is to try to avoid a new deal breakers it. in fifty seven days time on the thirty first. of october so they've done that in a one single. day and as we speak it's gone to the- house of lords which is the upper chamber. and we think that there are something like ninety two amendments. possibly i'm what is cool here filibustering so in other words the government is going to. attempt to offer the speed with which the house of commons in the opposition. rebel alliance's is being called go straight through the house of commons the lower chamber. the house of lords and set the government again to try and slow it down why. because the clock is not just checking for the thirty first of october. any deal or no deal but it's taking because you'll remember that last week the prime minister in a surprise. move up. also provocation until the fourteenth of october all of.
3:35 pm
the house of commons unprecedented five weeks. in a row and he got that sense royal assent hours later. so this has to make it through. without without amendments the upper chamber it might need to do the painful process. go from. the but check back to the chamber it's. what is it really needs done by five pm london time. friday up because as of monday the government. can suspend. parliament and what we are waiting for now in the next fifteen to twenty minutes as you said in your introduction. is this response again predicted announced at the dispatch box in the house of commons off to that. key defeat last night to humiliate them baffled a new prime minister for six weeks into the job in office but some say not in power. really fighting for the survival of his premiership all of his government saying that he was going to bring any has done. a motion before the house because he wants a a general election he wants it on tuesday
3:36 pm
now the fifteenth of october why then. because he wants to be able he wants to be the prime minister he believes he can get a majority in a general election. to go to the next you council summit in brussels on the seventeenth and eighteenth. of october and try and pressure the other twenty seven of the eu countries to get. a deal that is what he says he wants to do. indeed and we've already had response days ago from the saying you know was he getting this from because- there's no actual room at to be maneuvered as far as that consent. but it would be using the word unprecedented because that's what it is we're seeing. things that of reading you here and you also losing these. over two days it it again another unprecedented situation he's taken politically quite a bashing isn't a- yes. we cannot underestimate over exaggerates a first the speed with which that alliance of the labor policy i'm some very strange bedfellows some would say
3:37 pm
twenty one tory rebels conservative mps who knew that they had that sort of damocles again unprecedented that threat that if they voted against the government and they voted. for this position motion yesterday that they and during this at the end of this debate that they would be expelled from the party that includes two former chancellor of the exchequer. kenneth clarke the father of the house it was that was under margaret thatcher but also one that was shown to the exchequer of philip comment only six weeks ago. also the grandson of sir winston churchill so nicolas serves a former defense minister i cannot also exexaggerate yes you'll write te possible make sure all the criticism of the attacks on the prime minister certainly the labour leader jeremy corbyn. when attacked by a certainly yeah also attacked by the prime minister the dispatch box to say you a freak you are scared you jeremy corbyn who has said for months and in fact two
3:38 pm
years that you want to general action who have said that you already. he was not prepared to cool one why not what is the prime minister need all the votes because it is no longer in the gift of a british prime minister to call an election it is he needs two thirds of a majority. in the house of commons so we think that what he will try and do is on monday come back a presente short bills saying he wants an election on tuesday the fifteenth of october. and then he would need just a simple majority majority of one would suffice sir would get to get the general election that is coming down the track it's just a question of when and- jenny cornice challenge the prime minister to go tomorrow to brussels. and actually now. also for that extension a three month exception. for the thirty first of january so we'll watch
3:39 pm

3:40 pm
lost its majority and he lost control paul. and this is this is what we see today. the control of the gender politics has now gone it helps hands today andnd the bill has passed very quickly now it might get bogged down the molds we'll see if your correspondent said. this ninety old. the buses are too to try and stop that but- jojohnson issued and it is party a result making. he was eighty people was forced to call in to make a decision what is going to do. by. thirty six broke for the longest period since nineteen thirty. he he really fleshed out many inside his own policy who were uneasy about his direction. now the- victory he's now golf is that those people and i will no longer hold except to quit. now your correspondent rice said that this election coming. but it's not true when. many is the mps cody sitting no they're going

3:53 pm
really doesn't't have. too many options up his sleeve right now and this is for months in the telegraph and no two u. la this take on the possibility of a new election. i jeremy cool but has that he doesn't want it to happen not because he doesn't want to election but because he doesn't want this to be a way to sneak in. a no deal with brick britain leaving the european union with no agreement in place so he's saying yes but play but but no it's just yes. i am a lot of people. wondering whether jeremy corbyn is the hot shooting himself in the first a little bit because for two years he's talked about wanting a general election he did have quite nice line though in his. speech tonight saying and that the offer of an out n. u. election is a bit like the from an apple to snow white from the wicked queen it contains the poison of note deal. everyone there very very c confused about all the political shenanigans in the u. k. right now these kind of tweets i will say
3:54 pm
absolutely everywhere i wish this brexit series looking netflix feels like i've been watching it. late at night for the last three years and i'm not close to finding out what's going to happen. and this is that i. anyway. is that. basically a lot of people very confused right now i'm. confusion and some might say there's a certain shame about what's going on and on that issue of being a shame this one a beach from last night's debate which isn't going anywhere isn't going away too. no absolutely i if you don't social media tool today youou cannotot p possiblbly have escad the image of jacob rees mogg prone on the green letter of the houses of parliament benches and only one newspaper put on its front page not was the national in scope plans along with the headline at johnson humiliation. and it
3:55 pm
says tory contempt for us later bad thoughts with babies at this position of jacob rees mogg ready to sum up his contempt for the process contempt for the people of the united kingdom perhaps and it has become a source of great amusement from lots of people and bought many were very angry he was criticized in the house by and he's he was also criticized online by them. on the telly saying at the physical embodiment of arrogance entitlement disrespected contempt for a parliament and will this late and he said i'm hoping spreading his ninety to march into the chamber with a blanket hello and a whole couple who thanks for the poor man not too sure there was much sympathy going around well it's a hot milky drink that's quite popular in the u. k. tvs. i forget people might not know about that one. i'm. to the-

missions that means as we call them. i am and that he is beating the essence and family to the safe i'll happens. in that the g. every day and this one and all to titanic paint me like one of your french girls. and one of my favorites here this one very political in dis and he's hugging. a bass saying i love boris on the teachers of it and he got a little night cap on. and it says just off the not able to warm milk. sweet dee dreams of all the millions of pounds you made shorting the pound. one of the big criticisms of jacob rees mogg. it's worth pointing out is the leader of the house. not that he's actually making. a great deal of money we're talking millions out of the brexit confusion. and the fact that the pound has dropped and he's moved his own hedge fund to island in order to. makake sure it stays within europe so a lot of people feel his. but a bit of hypocrisy going on. at with jacob riis logan his desire for the u. k. to. be out of the european union. and. point that is an interesting one is in the independence this piece by emma by now. talks about the lasting legacy at
3:57 pm
this image. i'm saying the basically in bodies every negative stereotypical image that anyone has all of the tory party. and the fact that they don't understand how hard people have to work that they have it easy that over privileged. and basically what she says in this piece is that any time any tory mps accused of being out of touch. they can just call up this image and it is going to be hard for them to shake off. and the other thing that's worth noting is that people do have very real fears about brexit. nor does some of very happy for brexit to happen. even if it's an ideal scenario. but there are many others that fee is may or may not prove to be well founded. but being in this kind of arrogant laid back poposition when one of the most important debates that will ever happen in the british p parliament is taking place. a lot of people really quite angry about it. and i wonder how it wowould have bebeen taken if it wass a labor politician done that given the right wing leading of most of the press in the u. k. emma thank charged with emma james of. the watch. thanks to kate for the business too great to see you.
