So -- the rest of Europe up particularly the UK and France learned from Italy -- -- much for breaking news is written piece about this and joins me now. Do you look I get is is is in the headline here what you mean by the. Yes it's a very simple point I think the question really his -- to grand -- do so well in -- had been some concerns. For the European but it that the Fatah movement might actually equal. -- The parting of the largest part of the Democratic Party or actually even -- has been a mushy type what happened was that Lincecum was -- to -- in the fox talk about twenty. Which ones are so really it's a massive success of the democratic policy on the question. Really not as what does that mean freshly ground. What gives it gets crazy legitimacy doesn't it took to continue with his reform on an -- -- and and -- -- -- and he sort of he uses these sort of proxy bench -- -- -- that -- the -- primaries with -- -- policy. Lately last year and now with the European elections. When the question remains could use this as a springboard fresh -- national elections his opponents of hostile policy of force -- Tanya. We'll never be weakened down now so it is a perfect time and to do that. He he he's just missed -- -- -- he had -- look at it took sort of yes that idea the no -- want to get back to elections -- until the electoral system has been copy reform to the crux of what commitment he wants to do in -- a lot of it is reforming constitution. Those reforms actually operate if colts paper can -- implementing for twenty years. And host to some constitutional reforms he will need the backing of all the policies and what did specialize -- to do is actually two. More or less reformers and policy is a concern to -- left wings and is in part to that but really he can infants and allowing him to. Effectively threatened the other policies of elections if they don't support you sit sit sit.

Is the way to Carol rather than constant Europe. Yes the stronger must put this -- agency's domestic. -- the -- for change you can sit in can be vehicle for about a -- meant to so far hasn't done very much so he and his what will be -- -- -- but clearly. -- Italian that US -- and just have thought people recognize that there aren't problems -- really what we're trying in his. Let me say things luckily that's a role models for Cameron. Right in I don't know why does she she's been in the job longer I mean you say that represented in that little while so she's been in the job longer she's been that strong position domestically -- dot com and she and she doesn't -- and she doesn't go around Europe bashing. But -- that could come as -- -- predicted to finish on them what war. Should what should brands he'd be doing man. Next well -- you mean in terms of economic policy yes well I and essentially that the key thing and he's performing the constitution to long process reforming labor market. So that means constitution and senate reform reform of the -- relationship these regions. The labor market but really picket the event that'll just into that will come from his own party. And that's really what the real benefit of this result is but he can effectively punch the Democratic Party he can show it to be human voters to not allow him to track. The left wings and the cents a sports threat to be friends and policies have the labor reform. It is -- next followed quickly by the senate before. OK very good -- thinks that new -- for breaking news viewer watching US show properties and 1730 GMT. I'm axle problems towards.
