听力文本Here in Britain, members of Parliament have voted to renew the country's aging nuclear deterrent trident. The governing Conservative Party wants to build 4 new nuclear submarines at a cost of around 41 billion dollars. 472 MPs voted in favor of renewing trident, 117 against including the opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Our London correspondent is Rob Watson.
Absolutely overwhelming support for the renewal of the nuclear deterrent from Conservative MPs, but of course what is really striking is just the astonishing divisions within the ranks of the opposition Labour Party. So you had one fraction led by the Party's leader on the very much the left of the Party Jeremy Corbyn voting against the renewal, quite a lot of abstentions, but an awful lot of Labour MPs voting with the government and against their leader.
So what does that say about the state of the Labour Party?
So it's looking pretty bad for Labour.
Interestingly, the opinion polls, I mean, they suggest that the British people are rather divided on the issue of whether Britain should renew its nuclear deterrent, but what they are certainly not divided on is which leader that they think would make Britain safer and they overwhelmingly think that that would be Theresa May and not Jeremy Corbyn.
An international AIDS conference in South Africa is looking at ways to speed up efforts to eradicate the disease. More than 34 million people have died from AIDS related illnesses since the virus was identified in the early 1980s. Global infection rates have declined but a recent UN report warned that in some areas HIV AIDS is again on the rise. One of the scientists who discovered HIV, Nobel laureate Francoise Barre-Sinoussi told the BBC that she's optimistic that a way of driving a virus into remission will be found.

保守党议员有绝对多数的人支持更新核武器，但最让人震惊的是反对党工党内部各阶层之间惊人的分歧 。在工党领袖、左翼杰里米·科尔宾的带领下，一部分人反对更新核武器，很多人弃权，但有大量的工党议员投票支持政府，反对他们的领袖 。
嗯，我认为这再次有力的印证了工党内部的巨大分歧 。我们在新闻编辑室栏目中多次探讨了这个话题以及其他议题 。但真的可以看到杰里米·科尔宾领导下的工党左翼激进分子和绝大多数工党议员之间的明显界限，后者说："天哪，被这样的人领导者我们什么也干不成 。"这是分歧的又一个例子，我认为值得指出来 。它决不是安静的、学术的、和平，而是真实的、情绪化的、赤裸裸的 。看的就是政客的胆识，他们可能就是工党的未来 。
