we're going underground ahead of tomorrow's semifinals that russia twenty eighteen which u.k. foreign secretary boris johnson thought was comparable to hitler's nine hundred thirty six olympics coming over the show we speak to grammy award winning artist jimmy cliff about wars funded by colonialism from vietnam to afghanistan as well as bob marley in the welding factory and the hostile environment that began long before theresa may and good to mexico be the next venezuela we speak to founder and chairman of the mexican chamber of commerce of great britain evaluated tilly about what president elect andres manuel lopez obrador means for the world plus is no surprise given the e.u. policy on the jailing of demographically electric politicians on the day new spanish pm pederast sanchez meets catalonian counterpart we get the take of us by the european parliament. miti on foreign affairs jordy said that all the civil war
coming up today is going underground but first on this day in one nine hundred sixty two singer bob dylan recorded the song that would make him a star blowin in the wind he introduced it by saying it was no protest song later though he said that the greatest protest song ever written was by someone we speak to today we caught up with the grammy award winning artist and film star known for you can get it if you really want harvey they come many rivers to cross i can see clearly now and countless others jimmy cliff speaks to us at a hotel in west london jimmy you're touring across europe across the world the big talk here across the world obviously terms america but here is after the injustice of the wars there is migration and that the moment the european union is cutting down on migrants what is behind this all refugees sub-zero you heard us of exactly not actually about this kind of migration oh yeah but refugees was
triggered by the migration situation that was going on in you know some of the places i called you know nic come across the sea coming come to italy come from libya comodo over and so that touch me and. you know some touch might express that refugee situation has been going on for quite a while so why i mention. jesus christ went to egypt for refuge is because the fundamental christianity. and i'll do more to stick religion for that matter you talk about muhammad as well yeah all amounted to sequel asians you know that came out of aber missive they all believe in their holy books they write about. egypt as
a bad place. and yet they are to go there if i heard that. one good toll in london is a bad place in my son or daughter is in a bad way i'm not going to send my son go to there but if it's a good place and my son or daughter needs refuge i said number so it contradicts what they're saying about egypt being a bad place absolutely not wasn't well the scandal here and the prime minister caused a scandal i think even now is the windrush scandal about the deportation of men women and children of africa being descent who came in the in the forty's fifty's to build a strong health service and so on it came as a shock to the elites in this is that something like that could happen and they've
they've lost many of the children in the system you know with the good about the windrush scandal yet there are a majority of the people are void of the knowledge of what went on in those days before and they came now what. we do apologize for interrupting this episode of going underground but we're going to take you live to london now as the british prime minister to resign may is addressing britain's house of commons follows the resignations of three ministers in twenty four hours including foreign secretary boris johnson and listen in right now. to my right elbow friends i the members. the members the members will hold surprising how to and oxbridge and south priceless but. we do.
we do not agree about the best way to differing our shared commitments to one of the results of the referendum but i want to recognize the work of the former secretary of state for exit in the european union for the work he did to establish a new car and steer and steer through parliament some of the most important legislation for generations and similarly she recognized the passion that the former foreign secretary demonstrated by ensuring i. mean for my ensuring i am promoting orderly living young seemly atmosphere. i want to hear about these important matters and i was and i think i was sure that the prime minister thank you in the form of foreign sector demonstrated in promoting a global britain to the world as we leave the european union and i'm also pleased to welcome my honorable friend the member for each year in fulton as the new
century. mr speaker on friday a checker's the cabinet agreed a comprehensive an ambitious proposal the provides a responsible and credible basis for regressing because he ations with the e.u. towards a new relationship after we leave on the twenty ninth of march next year it is a proposal that will take control of our borders our money and all. but do so do so in a way that protects jobs allows us to strike new trade deals through an independent trade policy and keeps our people safe and our union to guess i mean before i set out the details of this proposal i want to start by explaining why we are pushing it forward. the negotiations so far have settled for all of the withdrawal agreement and we even greet an implementation period which will provide businesses and governments the time to prepare for our future relationship with the e.u. but on the nature is not a future relationship the two models that are on offer from the e.u.
are simply not acceptable first there is what is provided for in the european council's guidelines for march this year this amounts to a standard free trade agreement for great britain with northern ireland cast off in the e.u.'s customs union and parts of the single market separated through a border in the r.f.c. from the u.k.'s own internal market no prime minister of our united kingdom could ever accept this it would be a profound betrayal of our pressure. and while i know some might propose instead of free trade agreement for the u.k. as a whole this is not on the table because it would not allow us to meet our commitments under the belfast agreement so there should be no hard border between northern ireland and and secondly there is what some people say is on offer from the e.u. a model that is effectively membership of the european economic area but going further in some places and remaining in the customs union for the whole of the u.k. . this would mean continued free movement continued payment of vast sums every year
to the e.u. for market access a continued obligation to follow the vast bulk of e.u. law no independent trade policy with no ability to strike our own trade deals around the world i firmly believe this was not on other referendum result so if the e.u. continues on this course there is a serious risk it could lead to no deal and this would most likely be a disorderly no deal with thousand agreement on our future relationship i cannot see that this parliament would approve the withdrawal agreement with the northern ireland protocol and financial commitments without these commitments the e.u. wouldn't sign a withdrawal agreement mr speed. the responsible government must prepare for a range of potential outcomes including the possibility of no deal. including the possibility of no deal and given a short period remaining before the conclusion of negotiations the cabinet agreed
on friday that these preparations should be stretched. but at the same time we should recognize that such a disorderly no deal which has been found consequences for both the u.k. and the e.u. and i believe that the u.k. does a better so the combination creates the cabinet agrees that we need to present the e.u. with a new model evolving the position that i had set out in my mansion house speech so that we can accelerate negotiations over the summer secure all that new relationship in the autumn pass the withdrawal that information bill and leave the european union on the twenty ninth of march two thousand and nineteen mr speaker the friction free movement of goods is the only way to afford a forward a half border between north island and learned and between northern ireland and great depression and it is the only way to protect the uniquely integrated supply chains and just in time processes on which millions of jobs and livelihoods depend
and. so at the heart of our proposal is a u.k. e.u. free trade area which will avoid the need for customs and regulator e checks at the border and protect those supply chains to achieve this requires four steps first a commitment to maintaining a common rule book for industrial goods and agricultural products to deliver this the u.k. would make an upfront sovereign choice to commit to ongoing harmonization with the e.u. rules on goods covering only those necessary to provide for frictionless trade at the border this would not cover services because this is not necessary to ensure free flow at the border and it would not include the common agricultural policy agricultural and fisheries policies which the u.k. . we will leave when we leave the e.u. the regulations that are covered are relatively stable and are supported by a large share of our manufacturing businesses and we would continue to play a strong role in shaping the european didn't and international standards that underpin them and there would be
a parliamentary knock on all new rules and regulations because when we leave the e.u. we will end the direct effect of e.u. law in the u.k. all local laws in the u.k. will be passed in westminster edinburgh cardiff and belfast. parliament which have the sovereign ability to reject any proposals if it so chose recognising will be consequences including for market access if we chose a different approach from the e.u. second will ensure a fair trading environment so under our proposal the u.k. and the e.u. which incorporates strong reciprocal commitments relating to state age will establish co-operative arrangements between regulations on competition and we will commit to maintaining high regulation re standards for the environment climate change social and employment and consumer protection third we would need a joint institutional framework to provide a consistent interpretation and application of u.k. e.u. agreements by both parties this would be done in the u.k. by u.k.
courts and in the e.u. by e.u. courts with due regard paid to be case law in areas where the u.k. continue to apply a common rule book this framework would also provide a robust and appropriate means for the resolution of disputes including through the establishment of a joint committee of representatives from the u.k. and the e.u. it would respect the autonomy of the u.k. and the e.u.'s legal orders and be based on the fundamental principle that the course of one party cannot resolve disputes between the two force the companies also agree to put forward a new business friendly customs model facilitated customs arrangement this would remove the need for customs checks and controls between the u.k. and. in you because we would operate as if a combined customs territory crucially it would also allow the u.k. to pursue an independent trade policy the u.k. would apply the u.k.'s tariffs and trade policy for goods intended for the u.k. and the e.u. is terrorism trade policy for goods intended for the e.u.
ninety six percent of businesses would be able to pay the correct or no cherif at the u.k. border so there would be no additional burdens for them compared to the status quo and they will be able to benefit from the new trade deals that we will strike. in addition we will also bring forward new technology to make our custom systems as smooth as possible for those businesses who trade with the rest of the world and someone suggested that under this arrangement the u.k. would not be able to do trade deals they are wrong when we have left the e.u. the u.k. will have our own independent trade policy without the seat of the world trade organization and the ability to set cherif for our trade with the rest of the world we will be able to pursue trade agreements with key partners and on friday the companies agreed that we would consider seeking access to the comprehensive and progressive agreements for trans-pacific partnership. this is be collaborative plan
for britain respects what we have heard from businesses about how they want to trade with the e.u. after we leave and will ensure we are best placed to capitalize on the industries of the future in line with our modern industrial strategy finally as i've set out in this house before our proposal also includes a far reaching security partnership that will ensure continued close cooperation with our allies across europe while enabling us to operate an independent foreign and defense policy so this is not just a plan that is good for british jobs but good for the safety and security of our people at home and in europe to. some of our asked whether this proposal is consistent with the commitments made in the conservative manifesto it is the manifesto set out and i quote as we leave the. rippin union we will no longer be members of the single market or customs union but we will seek a d. and special partnership including a comprehensive free trade and customs agreement and that's exactly what the proposal agreed by the cabinet seeks to achieve. what we are proposing is
challenging for the e.u. it requires. it requires them to think again to look beyond the positions they've taken so far and agree anyone fair balance of rights and obligations because that is the only way to meet our commitments to avoid a hard border between north and on an island without damaging the constitutional integrity of the u.k. and while respecting the results of the referendum it is opponents the reflects the links we've established over the last forty years to some of the world's largest economies and security partners it is a bold proposal that we will set out more fully in a white paper on thursday i mean i expect the e.u. to engage seriously with the details and to intensify negotiations over the summer so that we can get the future relationship i firmly believe is in all our interests
in the two years since the referendum we have had a spirited national debate i. wish with robust views occurring around the cabinet table as i have on breakfast tables up and down the country over that time i've listened to every possible idea of every possible version of rex's mr speaker this is the right tracks it leaving the european union on the twenty ninth of march two thousand and nineteen a complete a complete end to free movement taking back control of our borders an end to the jurisdiction of the c j u in the u.k. restoring the supremacy of british courts noble sending vast sums of money. here to the e.u. instead of brics it dividend to spend on domestic priorities like our long term plan of the n.h.s. . flexibility on service is where the u.k. is worldly to know half border between northern ireland and between north and great
person a parliamentary lock on all new rules and regulations leaving the common agricultural policy in the common fisheries policy the freedom to strike new trade deals around the world an independent foreign and defense policy but not the most distant relationship possible with our neighbors and friends a new deep and special partnership frictionless trade in goods shed commitments to high standards and together we continue to promote open and fair trade and continued security cooperation to keep our people safe this is the great sin that is in our national interest it is the threats it will deliver on the democratic decision of the british people it is the right deal for question and i commend this statement. to me. mr speaker i want to thank the prime minister for an advance copy of the statement and to share condolences to the friends and family of dawn just we're over two
years on from the referendum two years of soundbites indecision and cabinet infighting. culminating culminating in a series of wasted opportunities with more and more people losing faith that this government is capable of delivering a good breakfast deal and that is just within her own cabinet. two years two years on from the referendum sixteen months on from article fifty being triggered it's only this weekend the cabinet managed to agree a negotiating position among itself and that illusion lasted forty eight hours. boys there there are now only a few months left until these negotiations are supposed to conclude we have a crisis in government to secretaries of state have resigned and still win no
clearer and more future relationship with our nearest neighbors and biggest partners will look like workers and businesses does better than here say. thanks mr speaker this government is not capable of securing a deal to protect the economy jobs and living standards. in. this government cannot secure a good deal for britain. on friday and on friday mr speaker the prime minister was so proud of the breaks it to you she wrote your employees to declare collective cabinet responsibility is now fully restored. while the our environment secretary out it is our own words and said one of the
things about this compromise is unites the cabinet and. the chicas comparable. to checkers compromise took two years to reach and just two days to unravel mr speaker how can anyone have faith in the prime minister get a good good deal with twenty seven european union governments when she can't even broker a deal within her own cabinet a he watching r.t. enter national just been listening to to reason may address their house of commons in london that shortly followed by jeremy colvin that lead to all the opposition labor party less costly. well correspondent in london at least this sets a find out the latest and they should developments like coming thick and false today can you bring us up to date. of course well the foreign secretary boris johnson was meant to give a press conference at the western balkans summit in london but downing street put
out a statement this afternoon saying the prime minister to resign may have accepted johnson's resignation now he had been holed up in his official residence today so this was increasing speculation with room a sickening around that he might resign tony was johnson the foreign secretary of course but the public face of the leave campaign and this departure could deep in the sense of crisis around summation battles to please a cabinet save a negotiating. of the moments but in them to twenty four hours we've also seen the resignation of david davis the secretary and he said that to reason they had given away too much too easily when he resigned his threats as secretary on sunday night now he'll be replaced they by dominic rob a prominent leave campaign in the two thousand and sixteen referendum but the prime minister faces as a tense meeting with tory m.p.'s and pitt is in parliament today and she'll want to try and keep a cabinet under control amongst all the infighting that but addressing parliament
this often in to reason may. and i'm david davis for that way staring at it as legislation through out the commons and chill so said she would be keeping the whole of the u.k. in the single markets and customs union which would mean except in free movements and if he continues on its current course she said this could lead to a no deal bricks it now she also talks about a new customs territory putting forward a new plan which is the facilitated customs arrangement plan and this is something that business is a very concerned about because businesses such as addison of the fence and businesses are worried about this new plan and they've also set a luxemburg in brussels as the new viewers can bases but she had hopes that had cabinets secured and. agreement on friday at check is out the prime minister's country house which could have helped had the never the right fit and head tent but one of the points that they had seemed to find a conclusion on was to share a common rule that was on good to form a new u.k.
trade area but the resignations of two of the cabinets to most fenian ministers have left to reason made cabinet in a tenuous position. and date for now he says that they are speaking to his life from london thank you for the update i'm sure it's going to be a very busy day in london for you will speak to you saying we're going to take you back to the house of commons to listen to a position labor leader jeremy called and by our own cabinet members as bureaucratic. the agreement contains no plan to protect all service industry no plan to prevent job order in northern ireland and also put forward the idea over regulatory flexibility which we all know mr sprague regulatory flexibility is a code for deregulation of our economy where the government's the government's proposals will leave to british workplace rights consumer rights food safety
standards and environmental protections forming behind you standards over time and none of this none of this was even being tested in negotiations the trick is agreement now stands as a shuttered truce a spring a sticking plaster over the cavernous cracks in this government the future of jobs i mean vestments are now at stake they those jobs and that investment a notch a subplot in the tory party civil war. and of such a crucial time for our country in these vita. in negotiations we need a government that he's capable of governing and negotiating for britain. for the good of this country and his people the government needs to get exact to go down and do it quickly and if he can't mike why for those who can
read the. mr. mr speaker i know the rush on which and he's been in this house for quite a long time he would have had many statements and the normal response to stay was actually to ask some question and. i don't think there are any questions anywhere in that but nevertheless nevertheless. there are. members on both sides that should try to calm down there's a long way to go and as is my usual custom i would hope to be able to call everybody who wants to ask a question so people do need to jump from their seats when they can speak on their feet prime minister thank you thank you mr speaker just on a few with i will comment on a few of the points that the right honorable gentleman mate he talked about removing standards and lower standards in
a number of areas including employment as i said in my statement we will commit to maintaining high regulator the standards for the environment climate change social and employment and consumer protection he said there was no plan in what i had said to ensure there is no hard border between northern ireland and all and in fact the very opposite this plan delivers the commitment for no hard border between northern ireland and all and the very beginning of his response the right honorable gentleman thanks me for early site of my statement it's just a pity he obviously didn't bother to read. what i write but i also say he says he says this is two years on. this is the right honorable gentleman who said immediately after the referendum decision in two thousand and sixteen that we should have triggered article fifty immediately with no preparation whatsoever he
talks about he talks about delivery well i might remind him that we did the joint reporting december we delivered the implementation plan in march and now we stand ready to deliver threats it to the british people with the negotiations that we're about to enter into he talks about he talks about resignations i can i just remind him i think he's had one hundred forty resignation. so i think i know next year is from the right on the ball trying to. find one economist and when it comes when it comes to delivering when it comes to delivering on a strong economy on jobs for the future the one party that would never deliver a strong economy is the labor party's economic policies would lead to a run on the pound capital flight and the loss of jobs of working people up and down this. downturn small.
business because. whatever else one's view of this particular plan my rideable friend has been talking about. her not to accept any single recommendations from the leader opposite here as nobody else in his party does i know i then however to answer this particular question how she lays this plan in front of the european union commission and proceeds on the go she ations because she told me where the she believes that there will be any concessions offered to them or none. say to my right honorable friend this is the plan that we believe is going to deliver on breaks that for the british people but do so in a way that gives us a smooth and orderly brought. cit ensures that we can actually do all the things that we want to do in terms of trade policies around the rest of the world in the commitments we've made to northern ireland when the white paper is published on thursday my right honorable friend will see that there are a number of areas such as in participation in certain agents is where we're
proposing a way forward and of course that would be to be negotiations on that way forward but this is the plan that i believe both delivers on bricks it to the british people but does so in a way that protects jobs and make sure that we have a smooth and orderly brics it year in black. thank you mr speaker the prime minister's response called the restatement and i share with you the remarks that she's made regarding don't stop just like a we're just been listening in to reason mayor she addresses the house of commons there and this is the third at resignation in twenty four hours four to reason may we're going to cause live it to our guest now neil clark to discuss this further neil good to see you thanks for joining us on the program such short notice so what are we saying here is the next an embarrassing and tricky situation for tourism a or are we seeing a full blown crisis for the conservative government.
