a huge division in british politics but the show of emotion and trifle isam in the u.k. on its point of departure from the e.u. indicates that the debate over its place in europe is far from settled. and joining us now is the don't correspond to begin in london they'll get day one after bracks said what is the mood like where you are out and across from. well here in parliament square you've shown that there were strong strong feelings expressed yesterday and these feelings are not going away the bricks and tears were really patriotic and relishing their freedom they are still feeling like that today and they feel that they have won that there was a victory and i compared a little bit breaks. to football it's you either with one team or with the other team and those divisions are not going to go away very easily in the next years i brought you some papers and the pro european daily express says relishing in that

some patriotic feeling saying that our time has come so the time of the breaks a tears and also a pro breaks the sun is a bit more looking forward and says make leave not was so hinting at what's in boris johnson's intraday and his huge task that he has ahead of him of bringing the country together. exactly i mean he's promised to make an incredible success so what are the steps towards that success and are they in fact credible in your estimation. well 1st of all there is everything that needs to be settled with the european union so it's just 11 months that he has said himself as as a timeframe when he really needs to come to terms with a new relationship with the european union and that's an incredible task a lot of experts say it's not enough time but all the economic relationship all the

security details everything that concerns britain's way forward with the e.u. and also with the rest of the world he only has a few months time to to actually do that and then of course there is the country that he needs to consider he has promised to level up is what he said at the country there were many faces especially in the north of england who for the 1st time in their life voted for the conservative party and he has said that he wants to bring a new optimism into that life new infrastructure and that he wants to better the life of the people and many of those people voted breaks it so it's a huge saws just looking at foreign policies but also looking at reconstructing britain from within and how precisely is boris johnson proposing to he'll do the division that this bracket debate has cause i'd like to when you said country was like. are 2 sporting size of 2 rival teams how does he make everybody
11:07 am
like the same team if you will. that is really the big question and i think he wants to do this by his charisma and by his optimism that seems to be his plan but also i know that a lot of the pro europeans are incredibly bitter about a lot of the law is during the live campaign and this campaign was led by george boris johnson about the brutality that he has displayed and just getting his enemies out of the picture so there is a lot of pits and those here here in the u.k. and it remains to be seen whether his drive and his optimism is enough to bring the country together. all right. in london thank you for that. and we turn now to some of the other stories making news around the world. demonstrators in algeria have marked the 50th consecutive week of protests against the ruling elite the iraq movement's marches have drawn had drawn diminished crowds

11:10 am
did what he was charged for but the line of defense here was that that will simply not an impeachable offense and so and that witnesses even if they would be allowed would not change the final verdict and therefore it was just be it would just be a losing time essential even across both political aisles center as even admitted that this was a very partisan. a very partisan impeachment trial and then we heard very often on the republican side also that it's election year and that's just have the voters decide in fall when the country decides on the fate of president trump or the senate is now in recess so what's next with the impeachment so the trial will resume on monday there will be 2 hours of closing argument are humans comparable short if you consider the marathons we've followed here in recent days
