this is deja vu news live from berlin trying to break the brakes a deadlock british prime minister theresa may have set to present her plan before leaving the european union but would be enough to satisfy a deeply divided parliament and also coming up at spin called the super blood of wolf moon just a short while ago the moon turned this mess maria mesmerising shade of red why have an expert on to tell us about the spectacular lunar eclipse. and ending nearly
7:01 am
fifty years on russ muslims in the southern philippines vote in a referendum on autonomy we'll talk to rebels who have been fighting all their lives. our brian todd thanks so much for joining us the british prime minister treason may is set to announce her plan before breakfast today to try to keep britain from crashing out of the e.u. without an agreement now this comes after lawmakers rejected her deal with the e.u. last week it is unclear how and if the prime minister can end the stalemate or go to our correspondent to live in london after this about her options. and the deadlock brett said battle polman is teresa mayes biggest opponent her deal was overwhelmingly rejected by both remain and leave m.p.'s. the nose to the left
7:02 am
four hundred and thirty two. and frustration the u.k. is building. unfortunately i think we're a bit we're looking a bit late across right now as a nation because we don't know how to sort our selves out of this problem i think the politicians have caused the confusion because most of the politicians in that building want to remain the two parties are fighting instead of joining together individuals are putting their own needs first and they're not thinking about what the country wanted. but for burke's it to happen may must get a deal approved by bitterly divided lawmakers now she's hoping her so-called plan b. will have more success. so will she try to piece the heart breaks it is within her own party and the deal which props up her government perhaps by sticking with her deal but addressing their main complaint. the irish back step designed to avoid
7:03 am
a hard border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland. or will she try and win over remainders and go for a softer tax and that could mean backing down on some of her so-called red lines such as staying in the customs union but it's not easy to convince m.p.'s would rather take matters into their own hands and an opposition party who wants to resign made to rule out x. again without a deal referendum parliament has not got the right to hijack the brics a process because parliament said to the people of this country we will make a we make a contract with you you will make a decision and we will order it but unless theresa may comes up with a plan they can get through parliament nothing can be ruled out including postponing the march twenty nine bucks a deadline or even another referendum. so what's it looking like let's go to london now did abuse barbara v's all barbara good morning do we know anything about teresa mayes plan b. yes we know
7:04 am
a bit and it seems that it happened exactly as we expected last week plan b. is in fact plan a because what reason may if you look at the media here this morning and from the information that emerged over the weekend what's the reason may want to do today is go back to parliament and say listen i will somehow magically remove the backstop or sort of make it so make its shrink within the divorce agreement so that in fact that the hardline tory breaks tears and to do you can happily agree to it that is more or less what she wants to do she did make a move last week for some cross party talks at those because theresa may wouldn't budge on her red light and she did he wanted to help about a customs union was the opposition for instance and so what is left it's only left that she will go back and say let's try again once more with feeling ok as minor of years of the backstop is the plan to avoid that hard border with ireland with the
7:05 am
republic of ireland barbara what about brussels what what he'll leaders be prepared to renegotiate with three samarian they spent about two years doing it already to go shooting. so far yes so far right and the idea in brussels in the statement of emerging from brussels was no they say the deal is closed we've taken almost two used to negotiate this is our best offer and now you take it or leave it and lump it behind the scenes of course there might be a certain willingness for movement but not in that wholesale man of the problem also is that of course what's the reason mays doing here she just couldn't chain ewing to run down the clock i mean we are sixty seven days before the official breaks days and breaks a date and she just continues to drag things out and parliament vote next monday then maybe there even be a vote later on after she has talked to brussels again so it drags into february in
7:06 am
time. becomes shorter and shorter and that seems to be what she wants to do increase the pressure ok barb we've heard the international trade secretary for britain liam fox saying that remain parliamentarians are trying to hijack breck's it what is he talking about. what he means of is of course what happens behind the scenes here that is that part parliamentarians for both sides of the political divide are trying to sort of take the steering wheel on this a much softer breaks it so we will see how that works out and what we have here in london really is a fierce post because the government and the cabinet which is split at least four ways on breaks it and on the other hand problem and which is also split which was not a really feels the pressure to come to some sort of agreement and to find some way fall but ok barbara visa will have much more on that power struggle for us in london today thanks very much barbara now for some of the other stories making the
7:07 am
news today israel's military says it has struck a rainy and military targets inside syria the israel defense forces announcing the operation on twitter pictures from within syria claim to show the country's air defenses repel and that attack it's highly unusual for israel to admit attacking targets inside syria. greek nationalist and patriotic groups have clashed with police in the capital athens tens of thousands taking to the streets sunday to protest deal aimed at settling nearly three decade old name dispute with macedonia you would allow greece's northern neighbor to rename itself the republic of north macedonia. well stargazers got a real treat just a short while ago thanks to a rare lunar eclipse some are calling it the super blood wolf moon now it was visible last night in north and south america and across the atlantic to
7:08 am
western and northern europe as you can see here the moon appeared to turn this stunning mesmerizing shade of red if you missed it bad luck but here in europe we may have to wait until twenty twenty nine to see another total lunar eclipse. ok let's get some insights on this from anna green she's a planetarium manager in st louis the u.s. right now though she's with the zeiss major planetarium here in berlin good morning and thanks so much for being with us and a stunning pictures there of that. blood wolf yeah yeah it's always a beautiful thing to say it's truly stunning all eclipses are amazing to experience i always always recommend trying to get out and see one if possible can you walk us through what exactly we were seeing blood sure so all a blood moon is when we have a total lunar eclipse so the moon appears
7:09 am
a little to a lot red depending on what our atmosphere is like at the time and this is just because the moon is passing through the earth's shadow so what we have is one of my favorite words this is a g. which is the straight body alignment of three celestial objects on this case the sun the earth and the moon and when the moon passes through the earth's we call the on brother darkest part of their shadow that's when we get the total lunar eclipse ok so sun earth the moon all lining up what about the super blood wolf why is it called that were just the wolf come from sure so the wolf part comes from and there's a little bit of argument whether it's from native american culture anglo-saxon culture but typically the beginning of the year january february wolves are in their mating season they're a lot more vocal so because of that it takes on the name of the wolfman. and it's the mating season we're getting these live pictures right now for the wolves and
7:10 am
this is what's influencing that apparently the the live images there of the moon ok what about this red cockroach glow we're not getting a lot of that in these of this but a lot of people saw that words are come from sure so that's caused actually by earth's atmosphere so different. wavelength. of light coming from our sun have different likes to them the blue light tends to scatter through earth's atmosphere but the red has a little bit longer wavelength and it passes through and that's what winds up having moon reflecting back to us ok like some said sometimes the red sun so exactly yeah that's also caused by the same a similar phenomenon. in this case some of our viewers or weren't able to view this in here in berlin unfortunately it wasn't up there that i went out looking for this morning good find it but are there any other events stargazers can look forward to if they happen to miss the super ludwell from a sure well first of all i'd like to just say that here in berlin we're very
7:11 am
fortunate because we have two observatories and three planetariums that you can visit so we would be happy to talk to everybody about that of course we're always excited but we have meteor showers throughout the course of the entire year that we can enjoy and there's always different planetary alignments and we have transit of mercury coming up as well that sounds good transfers for us that should be pretty exciting on a green from berlin's ice major planetarium thanks for coming in thank you. or has long been considered one of the world's most isolated countries but now it's back is that slowly opening stores to the rest of the world president chavez mir's a yo yo is here in berlin ten a visit him to boosting ties with germany he's also making reforms so back at home since taking over from his back a stance long time authoritarian leader in two thousand and sixteen years ago you have has release political prisoners and his recent controls on the press to w.'s
7:12 am
yury shadow paid a visit to these baccy capital to see how things have been changing. so let us down after nineteen years behind bars yusuf lose him a round of is enjoying every moment of his newfound freedom. the fifty five year old journalist was jailed in the late ninety's for supporting a new position political. regime the rot of is one of hundreds of who had to pay for their political issues with their freedom. but. i was tortured in prison. they always found reasons to punish me and came up with new ways to physically torture us political prisoners. we had to unload hot bricks from railway wagons yes the bricks had just come out of the oven and we had to load them into cars. is one of at least sixteen so-called political prisoners who've been released from prison in the last two
7:13 am
years. the main reason i was freed was thanks to our current president it came down to his political commitment his will to personally stand up and behalf of the prisoners. is the big government's human rights envoy has also praised president shafqat museo if he spreads out of that his country's opening up he says that thanks to the president finally have an opportunity to. defend their rights. now g.'s to the militia to what they say we used to receive two hundred complaints a year mostly last year we got nine hundred today we don't have a single political prisoner in our jails because the president personally monitors the situation we have changed as a country the less than and. a lot has changed in his biggest down in the last two
7:14 am
years the country is gradually opening up to the outside world but with people still detained on political charges in the country's prisons the rule of law still seems a long way off here in whose biggest human rights watch says there are still nearly a dozen incarcerated for their political views including priests soldiers and journalists but unlike the human rights organization the country's government doesn't concede doesn't political prisoners. and yet change is tangible in its biggest on corrupt police are being openly criticised powerful intelligence officials ousted and travel regulations for citizens are being relaxed at reform i hope there will be real reform and concrete results i want is back to stand to finally become a true democracy because all other reforms are also taking place in this biggest
7:15 am
unknown not just in human rights. central asia country seems to want to put an end to its own story terry and passed. its to the philippines now and muslims in the southern philippines have voted in a referendum that could grant them more autonomy this is the culmination of a peace process and ending decades of separatist conflict about three million people in the volatile mindanao region are being asked as a backup plan by separatists and the government to create a new self administered area in the region our correspondent. travel to the region and brings us this report. has been a muslim rebel for half his life for him like for so many other men in this part of the country not becoming a fighter was never an option. joined the
7:16 am
rebels because of my religion but it's more than that i also saw the injustice and pressure against my community that's why i decided to join. he and his comrades are part of an armed struggle between muslim insurgents and the philippine army that has marred this part of the country for fifty years. as in many areas of southern mindanao here in the village of two cannot leave how the majority of the population is muslim. in a country that otherwise is almost completely catholic. the main reason for the conflict is oppression we're defending our rights our land we feel that we're being occupied by outsiders nothing is ours and they're taking
7:17 am
away what's ours and they're not giving it back we always lose out and this is our home and we have nothing. now many here have real hope that could finally change. in a referendum the people of muslim in the now are voting to ratify a law that would grant them more autonomy. in return the rebels have to give up their fight. like these two gentlemen here many in this rebel camp have been fighters for all their lives often it's the only thing they learned how to do but if the autonomy law gets passed they'll have to take off their uniforms lay down their arms and start a new life as civilians. the deal has been in the making for decades but in the end it took this man to make it happen. internationally president roh trigo do tear it
7:18 am
is notorious for his draconian war on drugs and his verbal outbreaks but he has been pushing hard for enhanced tanami for the country's muslim. of the of. to many here in mindanao he's a beacon of hope for. we take him by his word we trust him on television we see how he handles the drug problem in the philippines offenders are either killed or in prison that shows that he really means what he says. football and i've been there but success is not only in the hands of the president the new law foreseen that muslim mindanao will be governed by the rebel leadership but feuds between powerful family clans rampant corruption and islamic terrorist groups could undermine the fragile peace deal. a peace
7:19 am
many of abdul's comrades have sacrificed their lives for. yeah whatever i don't want my children to experience what i've been through all i want for them is to get a good education to learn to read and write for fighters like me there is only violence and war i want my children to have a peaceful future. but abdulla is also wary if the agreement fails he says everyone here is ready to go back to war. ok we'll have more about that referendum as it moves forward sports now the bonus league was back this weekend after the winter break shot the season has suffered a starring start and they kicked off the new year with a difficult clash against volz berg because demand a go to does go is under pressure and he made a huge call pretty game in his pursuit of victory. a massive change the show cut to start twenty nineteen captain roll famine dropped for the first time in six seasons
7:20 am
to many co to disco making a big call in a bid to revive his side's flailing season salman's replacement alexander knew his worth in the early stages and soon after shock had a penalty daniel caligiuri stepped up. the deal so shocking so far so good so to disco it wasn't a loss that mimics many hitting the post the stretch best i clean up the scraps devolves for good products first going to sleep at goal shoppers defense corps ball watching. one one and shelter searching for answers heading into the half time break and they found one once again from caligiuri by two goals for the journey to still exceed the three shall come the result saying today it's going live to fight another day. let's hear a business now is how it was to get
7:21 am
a look at economic inequality around the world today that's right brian according to a new study a new billionaire is minted every two days while the poor just keep getting poorer that is according to that report published by oxfam the nonprofit organization says the fortunes of the world's wealthiest rose by twelve percent last year all the poorest half of humanity three point eight billion people so wealth declined by eleven percent oxfam accuses governments of exacerbating the income gap by under taxing corporations in the wealthy while underfunding public services the study is controversial some economists claim it's methodology is flawed they say that the charity ignores evidence that the number of people living in extreme poverty worldwide has actually been forty four years. now china's growth rate has slipped to its lowest point in almost three decades fuelling concerns over and. knock on effect on the global economy according to the chinese national bureau of
7:22 am
statistics the economic growth rate cool to six point six percent last year the latest figures come as the country struggles to boost domestic consumption and to resolve its trade dispute with the united states growth in the wallet second largest economy has been slowing for years but it is the pace of that decline that is worrying investors a decade ago chinese economic growth was hovering around ten percent in the years since then it has slowed steadily. and dr marcus villa joins me now he's a senior economist and trade specialist at the university of st galland good to have you with us here on day deputy was the clue cause of that slowdown it's simply normal i mean china has been developing very well over the last thirty years and as you cannot make siri tells us developing countries that some point their growth rates will slow and just flatter than twenty thirty two ten years ago and that's
7:23 am
simply normal development normal but we can't ignore the fact that there is the specter all three trade dispute between the united states and china have those tariffs been denting growth the tool for china well experts say that the trade war between the u.s. and china hasn't been really in the two thousand eight hundred figures it's the uncertainty around the dispute between mr trumpet or the chinese officials which has caused some problems in china but the actual expectations on what will happen we would see that in two thousand and nineteen at latest after march first when we know whether they will find an agreement or not but i wondering will that not to pressure on beijing to come up with the goods to result of this trade spat yes of course i mean the mood for the way how in the global economy. business is being done has changed and china has to accept that and like him or not mr trump has put
7:24 am
that very much on the table of the international discussion so we will see whether they will find an agreement but the pressure is on china but it's also on all the other countries because it's it's a win win situation if we go and do global trade so the pressure is on china i mean the government will have to manage this down to a certain extent are they doing anything to achieve that. yes of course they do they have put monetary and fiscal a stimulus into the country in the fourth order and there will probably continue to do and so the main question the key question is really whether. a country which has been doing free trade and free market economy for the last thirty years aligned with the state controlled political system can succeed in continuing to do so i think the jury for the way the chinese government is actually running and managing its economy is due to be out in the next ten years because we will see lower growth
7:25 am
rates in china because the country is developing more and more so it's just normal that these expectations will just be slower i mean that is a fascinating question and as you say we have to bet potentially get used to samoa great from the wild second largest economy but what would that then mean is that potentially the knock on effect and export that nation like germany for example it is actually important i mean take a company such as volkswagen that i think is up to forty percent of its revenues being directly and indirectly depending from from china even siemens ten percent of this so it's very important for a country such as germany but since the quality and the way how the chinese economy shell develop in the next ten years will be changing it will open up advantages and challenges for countries such as germany take the electrified and autonomous car driving systems i mean china and that's a good thing it was. a state owned state controlled country has basically ordered
7:26 am
that it has to be changed and there are options and opportunities for all these countries who can do so and china has never been good in inventing new things very good at copying intellectual capital so there are many many options and advantages for a country such as germany with its car industry with the u.s. and other parts of the industry so it's very important but there are a lot of opportunities all right the relatively optimistic view there of dr mockers visit from the university of st john and thank you very much for your views this morning. now ousted carr executive khana school has again proclaimed his innocence and vowed to remain in japan if granted bail he's also promised when electronic tracking bracelet the tokyo district court will consider groans the latest petition but has already rejected previous applications going has been jailed for over two months he has lost his chairmanship and mitsubishi motas you know is expected to meet later this week to discuss or even go in chairman and see
