how emotional he got when he came back from that. something like 11 minutes journey and the flight couldn't have gone off better. yes, there was some delays due to high wind, but this automated new shepherd rocket did exactly what it was designed to do. so you heard shutting down once, he came out of that capsule talking about the fragility of the emotion of the experience itself. and remember, the new shepherd rocket has some of the biggest windows of any spacecraft ever made . so you can only assume that he got not only to experience about 3 minutes of weightlessness, but to see the curvature of the earth. just how thin the atmosphere that protects us is, and that was the message you want to get across. even before this launch went ahead, but for jeff bay's off who owns blue origin, this was a public relations to he got, perhaps the most culturally significant. starship captain and tv history to go up and really get all eyes on blue origin because remember, he's not doing this alone. mosque is doing this too. as
9:04 pm
a richard branson and this some ego involved here. i would have to imagine between the 3 characters but for bays off on the blue origin program. this was a flawless flight, an amazing publicity. to other world news. now i me use top of bricks. it official has proposed to remove many of the customs checks between britain and northern ireland. as a trade dispute intensifies earlier the u. k. bricks, it minister cold for tearing up the protocol that's created. trade checks between great britain and northern ireland. u. k. says it will engage fully and constructively with the year, but names to say significant change. the european commission vice president says the new proposals would also unique opportunities to know the islands. this, this for all the specs which of practical imaginative solutions we can continue to implement to the protocol on ireland. northern ireland for the benefit of all
9:05 pm
communities on the grounds is not only sermons, stability and predictability. and in these festival ingredients for the local economy to flourish and also pays the re 4 and half the opportunities. so let's take a look at what exactly the protocol that the e u and britain are so divided about while northern island is the only area where the u. k. and the blog physically made. there's a 500 kilometer border. keeping that open is a crucial part of the 1998 good friday agreement. the accord ended the long run and conflict in northern ireland that kills more than 3000 people. to avoid any physical border checkpoints that protocol, created a customs divide in the irish c instead, which is inside the u. k. and to add to an already complicated process, northern ireland must follow a you rules as a condition of bricks. it overseen by the european court of justice, but the u. k is adamant that must change. andrew simmons has been following this
9:06 pm
story and joins his life from belfast. hello there, andrew. what has the e u been proposing as a solution to this protocol issue? will it's going all out. it would seem to try to smooth out this crisis over the sea borders you've explained. and what is happening is that there's a host of shacks as a host of formality that's been holding up goods coming in to northern ireland and causing massive problems. now, what we've been hearing from morris, seth greevich, the, the, the vice president of the european commission, or is that something like 80 percent off of the goods? mainly food at that sir? fresh meat sir, chilled meat, sir. dairy products, sir, they will go straight through without any checks or furthermore, something like 50 percent of the paperwork will be now completely cut out. so the
9:07 pm
reassurance to businesses is that there will be a much smoother process going on. so furthermore, there are assurances that the european union will, will take care of other matters as well. and there is though, with all of this, a red line is that the you is not prepared to renegotiate the whole of the, the protocol. busy they're prepared to make those that those concessions, but they're not prepared to negotiate a rewrite or of the protocol, or indeed a new or which the british certainly seem to want. so there is now or a tension still around this issue. tension. indeed, andrew, we know the largest pro u. k. penny in northern ireland has said the e proposal falls short. what more has the u. k side had to say, well that, that, that is interesting in terms of falling short,
9:08 pm
but that actually came into without just era by jeffrey donaldson, leader of the day because of unit his party here at the northern ireland descent. this is what he had to say. it still leaves in place and i receive border. there will still be checks on the movement of goods within the united kingdom, and that's not something we find acceptable. now this is a welcome. first step, the will be intensive and focused negotiations. so let's see where we get to what we do need to see more progress. this falls well short of what we require, but for where we were a few months ago, we've moved forward. no, those words are a lot more diplomatic than the ones we heard from david frost. the british sher bricks. it minister only 24 hours ago when he went straight into the, to an attack on the, the e, you and demanded that there has to be
9:09 pm
a different way of going about this altogether. and he was talking of actually a pressing the button in article 16 of them of suspending the whole a treaty altogether. and this is, this is a real point of contention. the issue of the european court of justice, which overseas this, that this treaty, this, this, this protocol up the, the british want that scrubbed out. they want a whole other, the range of concessions brought through. now that these, these certain negotiations which will be going on over future weeks, but they actually start on thursday, are going to be really tricky. indeed. are the you is saying, you know, more or less take it or leave it britain and forest johnson, or has been accused of more or less trying to rip up parts of the bricks. it's a deal that don't suit him. part of, you know, part of it a, an agreement that was signed in 2019 and, and actually stands in international law. so these are really still rocky times
