you're watching beyond one hundred days. a pathway still exists, says leo varadkar, to a last minute brexit deal. they are not there yet. there are big hurdles to overcome, but from the irish side cautious optimism that a compromise can be found. this is beyond 100 days, with me michelle fleury in washington, it could be that neither side wants to carry christian fraser is in london. the blame for the talks our top stories... collapsing — or maybe there has been some concession that has moved the talks into positive territory. a pathway to a deal on brexit is still possible, iam now i am now absolutely convinced that both ireland and britain so says borisjohnson and his irish counterpart leo veradkar wa nt that both ireland and britain want there to be an agreement after last minute talks. that's in the interests of there's been fierce ireland, the united kingdom and clashes with kurdish fighters the european union as a whole. in north eastern syria as turkey bombards towns with turkish forces continue airstrikes and artillery. their advance across their advance across the syrian border — there have been fierce clashes coming up in the next half hour... with kurdish fighters — as turkey bombarded border

towns. also on the programme..... general motors faces its biggest labour dispute in more than a decade, two men who helped rudy giuliani as a strike by 50,000 workers invesigate joe who helped rudy giuliani invesigatejoe biden who helped rudy giuliani enters its fourth week. invesigate joe biden in who helped rudy giuliani invesigatejoe biden in ukraine are arrested for violating plus, why living campaignfinance are arrested for violating a cashless life means you are one dead battery away campaign finance rules. from being thousands and the sheet of blank paper — of pounds out of pocket. that won a japanese student top marks for her homework. why? we will reveal all. the irish premier leo varadkar hello and welcome — i'm christian fraser is sounding pretty in london, michelle fleury upbeat tonight that a brexit deal is in washington. can be done, and maybe ahead of boris johnson's meeting with the irish premier even by next week. but then he has been leo varadkar this afternoon, saying its difficult both sides had been cautioning there was little prospect but still possible for some time. of any breakthrough in the brexit negotiations. has anything changed materially after his talks but after three hours face to face in liverpool, with borisjohnson today? the two leaders issued a joint we will probably get a better steer tomorrow after yet more meetings— statement, suggesting this time steven barclay there might yet be a basis and the eu's chief brexit negotiator michel barnier. foran there might yet be a basis for an agreement. the two leaders agreed that after detailed and constructive discussion "a pathway there's not a great toa discussion "a pathway to a possible brexit deal deal of time left. the eu summit is a week today. but if the two sides were to go was still in sight". a into the so called tunnel, short time ago the taoiseach a negotiating blackout, gave his thoughts on the meeting. then maybe it is still possible
7:02 pm
to come out with something positive. he said the talks had georgina wright from the institute been very positive, and had focused on customs, on consent for the people in northern ireland, and the future relations for government is with us. between ireland and the uk. mrvaradkarsaid between ireland and the uk. so what you make of what we have mr varadkar said there was still time to achieve a deal before october 31st. heard from them today? is this all pa rt heard from them today? is this all part of the smoke and mirrors, trying to avoid the blame game or do i think sometimes at this point in negotiations or discussions, you think something significant has the less said the better happened? it could be significant but what i can say is that but it does feel we have been here i had but what i can say is that ihada before and and think unless we see a but what i can say is that i had a very good meeting today with the prime minister deal we are pretty much in the same and our teams together, very situation. the uk and the eu to positive and very promising. reach that deal and then there is the question of whether they can pass that deal in time before the iam now positive and very promising. i am now absolutely convinced that both ireland and britain 3ist pass that deal in time before the 315t of october. pass that deal in time before the 31st of october. if it collapses, and we have to keep that in mind wa nt that both ireland and britain want there to be an agreement because there is an author what to thatis do in want there to be an agreement that is in the interests of ireland, the united kingdom because there is an author what to doina because there is an author what to do in a week, what are the options? and the european union well, i mean, it is unclearat asa and the european union as a whole and i do see as a whole and i do see a pathway towards an agreement do in a week, what are the options? well, i mean, it is unclear at this point. we know that in the uk the in the coming weeks. parliament passed an act that would seek the government to seek and extension if it failed to bring back a deal by the 19th of october or if we are told that the brexit mps say do you know what let's go ahead with no deal. so an extension secretary here in the uk will
7:03 pm
looks likely but from the eu's be meeting with the chief perspective, it is how long does negotiator in brussels tomorrow. it will be a decision that extension go on for? 315t of for michel barnier as to january, which that date stipulated whether these talks go into the in the benn act, does that give us tunnel, which is a media enough time if we have a general blackout when you get down to election and then christmas? does that give us enough time to legal text and the nitty—gritty of the deal. negotiate a new deal will be looking again at another extension? sol pat lea hy is political editor of the irish think there is a real possibility times and is in dublin. between a short and a long he was watching that press extension. georgina, there was lots conference. you have been of talk about a second letter that tweeting that you think there boris johnson's has been significant movement, of talk about a second letter that borisjohnson's government of talk about a second letter that boris johnson's government might of talk about a second letter that what do it is? i think we will borisjohnson's government might not send one asking for an extension to the eu but a second basically have to wait a little while telling brussels it does not want until we get the exact detail one. how do you think the eu might of the meeting, both sides are respond to that? this is of course being coy but both are saying that they are singing from a the government's position has been very clear, borisjohnson has said i different hymn sheet from the do not want to request an extension, one we heard from earlier this we must leave by the 315t october. week and even as late as last there is a question of lawfulness night. both sides saying there around that but i think the eu isa night. both sides saying there is a pathway to a deal now. leo clearly also want a deal and today's
7:04 pm
meeting was quite significant in varadkar spoke to irish journalist afterwards but boris that respect. i think they're going to do as much as possible to move johnson has not spoken to journalists. leo varadkar said that he was satisfied that the those negotiations forward. if the uk request an extension then of irish requirement of no hard course the eu is likely to grant it border in ireland, that would but for how long for? remember, it be maintained which suggests is not only about accepting an and confirms what i am hearing extension it is about agreeing the terms and conditions and the uk and that there has been a the eu need to agree those deals. significant concession from the british side in relation to customs. two things were what if someone requests an extension and boris johnson causing a blockage, the issue what if someone requests an extension and borisjohnson sends a second letter saying actually i of customs on the issue of don't want this extension?” consent on northern ireland. second letter saying actually i don't want this extension? i think again this is more a question of a this is by no means a done deal yet but what appears to have legal question. is that unlawful? because we have had a court case and been got over as those objections on customs and on clearly there is significant room and debate here in the uk that the consent. it will no be up to said that that would be unlawful. i think the eu in that case might say the uk to negotiate the details of that with the eu. —— it will do you know what? we are going to give the uk a couple of days to go back after the eu council summit. now. a bilateral basis between whether parliament needs to hold a the uk and the eu rather than
7:05 pm
debate or courts need to intervene between the uk and dublin but at some point they will lead to talk about extension and that debate will certainly dublin seems to be a definitely happen with before the lot happier tonight that ideal 3ist definitely happen with before the 315t of october. but if they discuss as possible. you are correct, the terms at the council or later borisjohnson has not yet that remains to be seen? did you see spoken. there have been some briefings and they are trying to stress they are only living coleen story essay? i did. do you with the customs territory wa nt coleen story essay? i did. do you inside which includes northern want a titbit. it was thornton... in ireland. the difficulty for borisjohnson is ireland. the difficulty for boris johnson is how ireland. the difficulty for borisjohnson is how does he give way without losing the the wirral where coleen rooney had a support of the dup. one idea is zist the wirral where coleen rooney had a 21st birthday? it's great, i only that the north will be in a joint customs area which has know that because rebecca vardy told me. i echoes of something proposed by know that because rebecca vardy told me. lam know that because rebecca vardy told me. iamjoking, know that because rebecca vardy told me. i am joking, if the lawyers are theresa may when she was trying watching! you have been waiting all to agree a deal with the eu. day to get that in! ijust that did not fly on that occasion but it is proposed watching! you have been waiting all day to get that in! i just want to talk about the general election that that the north would hasn't been called yet over what effectively remain part of the united kingdom customs, part of will be in the manifesto, whether or not boris johnson's government the eu customs area then that is something which could fly will be in the manifesto, whether or not borisjohnson's government might campaign ona not borisjohnson's government might campaign on a no deal. yesterday we
7:06 pm
with dublin. that is different. heard from one nation conservatives that is different to the like gillian keegan who take boris northern ireland backstop, is johnson at their word that they won't. but on the other hand those it? the key thing for the irish rumours will not go away. explain to side i think is that whatever the form of the agreement is me why would borisjohnson risk splitting the party like this? well, that it maintains the protections of the backstop, if i don't think they have decided yet thatis at the top level what they would do protections of the backstop, if that is done by another means, bya but they're keeping it vague. here that is done by another means, by a joint customs area and is one reason they are... you will london has already agreed to maintain that the north would be part of the eu single market see that volatility over the last three elections is at a record rules, so it would observe level. so the last election since regulatory equivalent with the size so if the customs area is 2015 and the general election 2017 a flyer then that is something and the european election, only two elections have shown that that dublin could accept. if volatility. one in 1918 after the dublin accept in principle then i think it would be down to first world war when women over 30 whether the eu can be satisfied we re first world war when women over 30 were shown given the vote. and in it works in practice but the eu 1931 following the great depression. will also want to know, and this will be one of the focuses and the reason it has become so volatile is because smaller parties of the meeting in the morning, ina 2—party volatile is because smaller parties in a 2—party system don't tend to hang onto their voters, so they but this deal can fly in
7:07 pm
disrupt, they cause this great churn and crucially they take from the westminster because they have centre ground. so the tories are looking at this and they're saying, significant experience of making deals with theresa may well, if there is not a centre so we which could not get through had maybe we had better try to steal votes from the brexit party which is westminster. get a view to come why we need to leave. so it is like on at short notice. political the us where the centre ground is a editor of irish times. tough place to be. a tough place to be and somewhere where no work the turkish president recep tayip erdogan dilemma no one is going to occupy. it is not just dilemma no one is going to occupy. it is notjust politicians in the us who are critical of turkey. france is threatening european countries, saying he will allow 3.6 million syrian refugees to travel into europe if they criticize his military operation.it comes amid reports of fierce clashes in northeast and italy today summoned the turkish syria on the second day of turkey's offensive against kurdish fighters whom they regard as ambassadors in paris and rome to terrorists. turkey says it has express their opposition. french seized a number of designated targets president vehemently condemn the operation saying it risked boosting and killed dozens of kurdish militants. tens of thousands of people are reported to be islamic state extremist. let's talk toa islamic state extremist. let's talk to a special adviser to the eu's fleeing their homes. meanwhile on the turkish side high representative for foreign of the border, the town of the border, the town of a kca kale of the border, the town of akcakale came under affairs. natalie, ifi what appeared to be retaliatory kurdish artillery fire. high representative for foreign affairs. natalie, if i could start
7:08 pm
the bbc‘s orla guerin with that threat from the president sent us this report from the turkish syrian border. of turkey that he would send riding into battle to millions of refugees to europe if the tune of war songs they criticise his military action. what, if anything, they criticise his military action. what, ifanything, can they criticise his military action. what, if anything, can the eu do about that? well, i mean firstly from the ottoman era. what is fundamentally important is a hero's sendoff for fighters who are part of turkey's operation peace springs. across the border, turkish to say out right that this is not forces now occupying syrian the kind of blackmail that really we territory, making military gains but diplomatic losses. are going to bend to. this is really fundamental for europe to be clear there was no let up overnight. about what its values are. it is not about what its values are. it is not turkey hit close to 200 a question of bending over to the targets in the opening hours of the attack, as troops pushed deeper turkish president because he threatened to send over millions of refugees. but the deeper question i into kurdish strongholds. think here is precisely what europe in the town of qamishli, the casualties kept on coming. can do and what it is that it can't do. i don't think it can, it does doctors tending victims ofa doctors tending victims of a new chapter in an old war. have the power to stop the onslaught now for the simple reason that the president erdogan is making no europeans are not militarily present apologies — far from president erdogan is making no apologies — farfrom it. in syria and i would add for very as his party rallied round him, he threatened his critics with
7:09 pm
good reasons. the only ones that a flood of syrian refugees. have the power to do this are the ones that have actually given the translation: hey, european union, get a translation: hey, european union, geta hold translation: hey, european union, get a hold of yourself. green light to turkey, namely the united states, and russia. russia is present on the ground and controls look, i'm telling you again, if you describe our operation the airspace. the europeans are not as an invasion again, we'll take the easy road, in opposition. europeans do actually have leveraged and particularly we'll take the easy road, we'll open the doors and send you 3.6 million refugees. economic leveraged. let's not forget that turkey is not doing particular well in economic terms. that it has been suffering a downfall of the and here are his targets, syrian kurdish forces currency, skyrocketing inflation, he views as terrorists, desperately outgunned important and very significant problem of youth and employment. and up against nato's this is very much connected to what second largest army. the president's woes are. there is they led the battle against is, now washington has left them to their fate. busily potential leveraged there. it but the kurds hit back today, causing terror and casualties, isjust not leveraged busily potential leveraged there. it is just not leveraged that can busily potential leveraged there. it isjust not leveraged that can be used from one day to the next to as we were a block away. stop this intervention but it can be used to ensure that this
7:10 pm
intervention is contained, that it does eventually stop and that above all it does not end up in an occupation of north—eastern syria. tu rkey‘s as we were a block away. turkey's offensive across the border in syria is now hitting home. this amateur video appears to show some of the casualties today. natalie, it is zero—sum diplomacy officials here in akcakale base though isn't it? it is a say three people are confirmed dead, and two long—running problem for the eu that of them were children. the president has this power, this power to open the gates if the eu well, we were expecting a response from the turkish doesn't play ball. where does it go authorities and it hasn't taken long. this? well, to be honest it has the we've been hearing explosions in the last few minutes power so this? well, to be honest it has the power so long as this? well, to be honest it has the power so long as we this? well, to be honest it has the power so long as we give him that power. so this is why i started off and on the horizon you can see with the bad news point. the minutes the dense black smoke. at which we are and we feel that we that's the aftermath ofa that's the aftermath of a series of air strikes. communicate that we are vulnerable the air strikes continued through the afternoon. because we up basically scared of on both sides of this border now, there are families refugees coming over to europe, in mourning and the offensive is only in its second day. obviously the present and it is not just turkey. it is turkey today, it could be egypt tomorrow and any donald trump's country basically bordering the eu surprise decision to pull us which could use this source of troops out of syria is testing the bounds of republican leveraged. sol which could use this source of leveraged. so i think the first support for the us president. some of the harshest thing in the first reflection has to
7:11 pm
critcism is coming from really be an internal european inside his own party from those reflection about where our who say the policy endangers kurdish allies and threatens to undo progress in principled stand because ultimately the battle against isis. unless we stand up for those principles we will be weak in power one of the few terms as well really. thank you for voices pushing back is senator rand paul. here he is defending the president's decision joining us from rome to date. the on cbs this morning. special adviser to the eu's high representative for us foreign we're moving 50 soldiers out affairs. christian, turning back of the on—slaught of tens of the on—slaught of tens of thousands of turkish troops so really i think it is here to the us, nothing has united a smart thing to do. what we need is not 50 soldiers fighting a war but a multilateral group to sit opinion as much as drum's decision. down and hammer out a peace. in what was interesting is that by i think the kurds are more likely to try to find way of explanation, donald trump the peace now that they know they have to fight or try yesterday gave a rather unusual to find peace. rationale for his decision to pull out troops. have a listen. the kurds are fighting for the land, just so you understand, they are fighting for their you understand, they are fighting fortheirland. as you understand, they are fighting for their land. as someone wrote in a very, very powerful article today, they did not help us in the second world war, they did not help us with we arejoined by we are joined by a senator at the moment. what do you put to normandy as an example. they mention names of different battles. but they achieve by sanctions which will
7:12 pm
be put before congress next are there to help us with their land. no, they weren't on the week? i teamed up with senator lindsey graham. we proposed normandy landings. but it is all pa rt normandy landings. but it is all part of the forgotten history of colonial soldiers in world war ii because i had a look today. in fact sanctions on turkey the very first day the senate comes the kurds served in a british unit back. we are hoping that we will send a strong sing that against the nazi baku in 1941 and many went on to serve in italy and greece as part of british units, not turkey will face severe economic penalties if they do on the beaches but certainly not stop the aggression against involved. well, us democrat hopeful the studying cards and withdraw joe biden hasjoined his rival their forces to where they were just a few days ago. that is the purpose of the legislation. primary contenders in calling for donald trump to be impeached. they to make it clear there will be a high cost to pdf turkey have formally... to see whether he maintains this outrageous withheld $400 million in aid to assault on people who were most nudge ukraine's president to effective at defeating is. investigate joe nudge ukraine's president to investigatejoe biden nudge ukraine's president to investigate joe biden and nudge ukraine's president to investigatejoe biden and his son. looking at what senator lindsey there are obvious risks for the graham had said, an outline of democrats, many fear that
7:13 pm
impeachment will fire up drum's sanctions might include base. could the impeachment party targeting military defence in turkey and also travel visas, backfire on the democrats? joining how will that affect the turkish president who is due to visit the white house in november at the invitation of the us president? if the me is pollster. welcome to the legislation passes then studio. thank you for having me. it president trump will have to is quite a week! every day is more decide whether to sign more detailed legislation. i expect there will be back and forth crazy than the next here and in dialogue but this has strong america! quite. we are racing you to support, not only because of the bottom. let's just america! quite. we are racing you to the bottom. let'sjust show america! quite. we are racing you to the bottom. let's just show you a poll that came up yesterday for fox news, i think we might have that. it what president trump did and what president trump did and is pretty positive for the democrats what the turks are doing now isn't it because 51% of people, presenting a total betrayal of oui’ presenting a total betrayal of remember this is a fox news poll, our allies. is is still alive agree that trump should be impeached and removed. so that is a tick for and well and if you knock out the democrats. but they really want to go through all these court cases the studying cards, you can be and be dominated by talk of impeachment when voters are much sure is will make a comeback. more concerned on other things? no, but the fact is they had to. you may —— the syrian kurds.
7:14 pm
not believe this but if you know afghanistan sees a very different presence to northern nancy pelosi, my wife is a member of syria but can you comment on the democrats, this was an what senator paul said, this was only 50 american ships but you are saying it was the intervention in the future election, removal of these trips which led to this? —— 50 american not reliving 2016. i believe it was the right thing to do, he had all soldiers. there is no doubt these freshmen with military about it. when we moved our experience, the national security soldiers out of this territory, question, i think people did the right thing. but the big issues that pleasa nt soldiers out of this territory, pleasant erdogan so it is a will shape the election will still green light to move on. he shape the election and they are all would not move then if he exhilarating and are all moving in a way that is even more problematic risked fighting american for the present. in your book you soldiers so by withdrawing say there is a shift, there is those american soldiers, what evidence of the electoral map changing and! trump said was, go ahead, which evidence of the electoral map changing and i sat in washington on the night of the midterms and i saw some of this happening. i want to is an outrageous betrayal of pull up another chart because it is quite revealing in terms of where the people who were the tip in things are going. out of 36 seats the democrats picked up last year, the people who were the tip in the fight against is. —— president erdogan. i think it 27 were in dense or sparse suburban
7:15 pm
is well known that turkey for areas. explain that to us? what is many years allied fighters of going on? why does that matter? what is to transit their territory. really happened, it is actually not they were never a priority for what really happened. that is turkey and now essentially president trump has said we do not care about these very reflecting a decade of revolution of people who helped us go after is. thank you very much, i know couege reflecting a decade of revolution of college graduates, the suburb is becoming more democratic, the you are in transit and it is suburbs are becoming more diverse. good a you tojoin us on if you look at the trend line over you are in transit and it is good a you to join us on the telephone. many years, they have just been on joining us now is ivo daalder, the age of flipping to the —— just who served as the us ambassador to nato from 2009-2013, been on the edge of flipping to the now president of the chicago council on global affairs. welcome to the programme. on democrats. the rural areas shifted 14 points from the president to the that issue of sanctions, should be worried that if the americans put sanctions on 2018 midterm. the white working turkey, we might push them class men and women flipped 13 point closer to russia because russia are already under sanctions, we more democratic compared to 2016 in have seen turkey buying russian the mid—term elections. so it was missile systems and they date of the need to alliance? that the mid—term elections. so it was the working class, white working class voters and rural voters pulled is indeed one of the issues back. they were not on the front line because there was the suburbs
7:16 pm
thatis is indeed one of the issues that is in front of us. we have and the suburban college women that to bounce a whole variety of we re and the suburban college women that were moving flipping seats but there influences, one of which turkey was a big change and that is a isa realignment that came in reaction to influences, one of which turkey is a strategic and important the way donald trump is governed. member of nato. we would like stan, you say that the demographics turkey to continue to be a are changing and that this works in member. on the other hand if favour of the democrats but does one of your ally starts this depend on who their nominee is invading and neighbouring country that has serious to run against donald trump? i am consequences as well. we need thinking of elizabeth warren, are to manage the situation and the enough americans willing to support problem in the last few days is someone who is more from the left that the united states is no side of the party? ijust think longer managing a very there are big structural things at complicated situation with the work. donald trump was the last tea president getting on the phone with president erdogan and seeing if you want to go, go ahead. that is not how we party battle, he won the tea party should be dealing with this base of the republican party. he led problem. have been calls within them to the end to finally win the the eu parliament today for election, not the popular but to win turkey to be suspended from nato, what does that mean for the election by winning working class voters. he did it price saying the alliance in that region? he would save the affordable care act, he would never touch nato, what does that mean for the alliance in that region7m is not that easy to suspend a
7:17 pm
member of nato. this is an entitlements, he would drain the swamps, govern for the forgotten americans, and it didn't happen. the organisation which relies on big switch that came back in the its decision—making process on consensus so there has to be midterms was working class voters who saw that he was governing for consensus so there has to be consensus to suspend anyone which means the turks would the rich, the greed that was have to agree to its. in turn dominant in the democrats this they could veto all kinds of corruption and health care... but action and meetings and every trend we are looking at has decisions that nato takes so it is very much unlikely for the got more democratic since the european union but there is a midterms. well, we will have to see how that plays out in the 2020 provision to suspense and indeed expel members out of the election and we will come back to you i'm sure lots of times between union. that does not exist now and then. well, christian, it is within nato which is why diplomacy and engagement, the going to be interesting to see steady and painstaking effort to try and get countries to people have been talking about this demographic change but it has yet to look at resolving problems together is so much needed and come through in the polls. this is it is the one thing missing beyond 100 days, still to come... we from the equation. we do not have a secretary of state in will hear one story of a woman who the united states today, we do paid much more than her £1 50 fare not have the diplomatic for catching the bus. all because
7:18 pm
she could not show her digital intensive engagement by european countries or the united states, talking about sanctions and punishment, that ticket. will not resolve the issue. you now, when you are abroad the talk about diplomacy and european health insurance card engagement, we expect the nato allows you to get medical health secretary general to be in istanbul on friday to meet the ca re allows you to get medical health care for free. only three countries turkish president, what to expect, to that meeting? —— will offer anything similar if the what do you expect to come out uk leaves without deal. catherine of that meeting. i expect the burns reports. kayla shean loves secretary general to make it clear to the turkey to find a more cooperative way to deal y°93 burns reports. kayla shean loves yoga as a way to look after her mind with the problem turkey faces and body. it tends to relax my which from their perspective, a kurdish date which it calls muscles if i've had a seizure. terrorism but what really is the presence of large numbers of syrian refugees in turkey and that will have to be dealt with in a cooperative manner so i was i would expect the iwas in i was in disneyland on a school trip andi i was in disneyland on a school trip and i was queueing for a ride and i secretary—general of nato to see the kind of behaviour we had a seizure. i was taken to had seen is not what we expect hospital by ambulance and they did
