who is marty going to why from moscow or mine there are all of the top stories in libya a man who celebrated as the country's transitional government officially declares liberation falling to be out of ousted leader ahmed but questions remain over whether the price paid in the form of lost lives and ruin of the structure was too high. more than two hundred people are reported dead after a powerful earthquake in eastern turkey it's fear the death toll could reach a thousand or so many people remain trapped under the rubble. the search for a solution to the ease debt crisis at a summit in brussels brings no breakthrough that's while in the u.k. there are growing calls to leave the blog altogether as a problem the parliament prepares to vote on whether to hold a referendum on the issue. well next we'll hear more about the british take on the
4:31 am
european crisis from the u.k. conservative party m p r t's interview is coming right up. patrick mercer the member of parliament for the conservative party and a former shadow minister for homeland security has been a frequent commentator on defense and security issues patrick thanks for speaking to r.t. now even very outspoken on the human rights act on how essential is allowing foreign criminals to stay in the u.k. on the grounds of human rights what does that say about britain i think it says the britain has surrendered for too many powers to the european union. is interpreting the the rules and regulations and the strict strictures of europe in a much more proper but in this way in this case on helpful way the most of the members of the the loopholes the foreign criminals can exploit the stay in the u.k.
4:32 am
is that making recent a target do you think i think if you if you look at foreign nations to choose towards the united kingdom particularly issues like terrorism for instance. london widely called in french circles on the style for the the these with which he had ists etc can live prosper indeed in place in particular levels or in britain but i think it's worth also remembering for what forty percent of america's acts. are directed at the united kingdom. not because clearly because of the actions of a majesty's government but because of actions of his loyalists fundamentalists etc inside the scheme directed at the us now if we have that if that is the case of this is just the way that we are regarded it was seen as being a soft touch for insurgents for for molton tensile ones or another yeah baby i just
4:33 am
that is terribly unhelpful to this country surely that's a concern with the olympics coming up you could argue and you raise of course you can say will the resentment of these people here they don't want to spoil a good thing. i'm hopeful. right of course is going to be targeted and she's labeled as the little satan on the islamist web sites and all those sorts of jogging places i read so much and so much more here britain's a target she's been attacked before her soldiers sailors and. every day attack in places like afghanistan pakistan. of course we remain. very high on the terrorist list of priorities so how does the government get out of this situation obviously human rights have respected but of course where do they draw the line i think it is very important that human rights of course have to be respected and that's one of the reasons why our servicemen and women in going abroad at the moment to make sure that that nations that respect human rights or no rephrase the nations but causes that don't respect human rights or what we fight against that sort of narrow
4:34 am
mindedness human rights and crucially important but there's a difference between the human rights of those who would endeavor to kill purchases as it was and the human rights of british citizens what greater human rights is in the right to life he or she who are trying to take your life away from you must be dealt with realistically must be dealt with sensibly we must there a gate from the front from from the strictures of the human rights act and we must replace that with a bill of rights as the current prime minister promised before the last election is the case of the government being hamstrung by europe or is this too weak to stand up to the e. i think things have not been made any simpler by the fact that we don't have a conservative government per se that we have a coalition albeit a conservative led coalition but a coalition the liberal democrats of course have set their face against any with the human rights act and therefore individuals like myself who. campaigned on the
4:35 am
fact that we would have a british rule a bill of rights i fear are going to be frustrated for some considerable time how damaging are the directives from europe. recently you just heard another would be threatening to sue the u.k. who doesn't relax its welfare system for annoyance well i mean you're a skeptic so what afraid you are you're not going to get any any world war words of praise from me about the european union is damaging to the early kingdom we are a sovereign nation and sometimes one wonders how much sovereignty we still show was european and was strictly supposed to promise we do need to have a referendum on our continued presence inside the inside the european union other our presence or the terms of which we find ourselves well again this was part of the conservative move before the last election given what's happening in the new year as in crisis the financial crisis is do you think this is. death now has has or has sounded fought for even the concept of europe well i think the concept of
4:36 am
europe for concept of europe is constantly evolving and constantly changing i think that's a healthy thing what i hope is that britain in the same way that we very sensibly stayed out of membership of the euro itself i hope that we continue to be skeptical about our further involvement with the following the recent riots across the cape the police were criticized for not acting more forcefully is this a case because the respect for human rights has gone too far do you think. human rights is a question of a balance between the majority and the vocal minority. the rights of the individual are preeminently important we live in a democracy believe in a civilized democracy where individuals are allowed to live their lives or should be allowed to live their lives and safety freedom speak to speak what they wish will say what they wish to an extent do what they wish trouble is that because of influences such as the human rights act because of the influences of of what i
4:37 am
would regard as the. as the less sensible members of the of the saloon the liberal press and the liberal establishment that those who would seek to disrupt society either by deeds words or actions inconvenience and danger the majority of it and endanger the majority of society unnecessarily so how many people did we see protesting say in the student riots before christmas i don't know how many were but clearly a tiny tiny minority inside the country were they were they protesting legitimately for the most part absolutely of course they were should they be allowed to continue protesting of course but not violently now the police must protect the majority from the violent or the disruptive minority that is as much a part of my human rights or your human rights as to say that once a man or woman is arrested they should be treated decently by other please of
4:38 am
course they should but it's a question of balance it's a question of proportionality now the police god bless them please please understand i am a big supporter of the police force have been so lambasted by the lily livered clan up to the last government that when we have things like the g. twenty protest the death of ian tomlinson etc well i'm not saying that things weren't got wrong by the police of course they were but this nonetheless has colored. so much of the police approach towards these sort of problems that we have a. institutional nervous breakdown from the police uneasy in these cases and helped by the fact they don't get robust and stringent support from politicians including those of my employee or should be a gun rights we have should they not want them they should have dealt with the rights with proportionality i'm not saying i wasn't there and i'm not a police officer and i'm not going to start making specific indictments about
4:39 am
policemen but those in my experience of dealing with riots which i regret to say a considerable most view is that once someone starts being violent they're very very very few options left you as a member of the security forces other than meeting violence with proportionate and measured ballance we didn't see enough of that what are you talking about him water cannons potentially possibly i don't i wouldn't i guess i wouldn't talk about the sort of weaponry no i wouldn't i wouldn't specify the sort of weapon all i would say is that in parts of this country things like watercolor and things like plastic bullets are used almost were i would say without the without thought of course for use with thought in northern ireland violent extremism violent disorder is dealt with extremely robustly by the police service and all the i don't see why we treat our rich thugs in a different way from the way that we treat english folks let's talk about afghanistan now could be argued ten years on the gulf between the western arab
4:40 am
world's a bigger than it was before now you're a former member of the armed forces what would you say was it with the campaign run to begin with or do veer off course afghanistan is a difficult place but i think that if there was going to be allied intervention in afghanistan we should have learned particular from the british experience in the past that if you go into afghanistan you go with limited aims and you go with a limited time period in the morning to get to enter afghanistan in two thousand. no clear mission statement with no clear limitations upon when their lives were going to withdraw or indeed what their aim was is very very difficult particularly for a former military man to understand can anything good come out from the thing if they achieved anything positive i think i think there is plenty of positive things that are being that are being achieved that first and foremost is we've got to stop talking about afghanistan and those if it is as if it is the kernel of the problem it's not it's a regional war and it stretches from the borders or rather to the borders of russia
4:41 am
and encompasses the nuclear armed country of pakistan or the presence of our troops in afghanistan or should i say more properly on the afghanistan pakistan border is as much about maintaining the relative stability of pakistan and the relative stability of pakistan's nuclear arsenal as it is about reestablishing afghanistan as a relatively civilized country what's the best possible outcome here they promise to withdraw troops by twenty fifteen is that likely will it be met and where will that leave the country it was an extraordinary statement by the president the united states saying to his enemies that whether he had won or not he would be patrolling his troops can you imagine the i'll to a conference they are lies deciding that there are no incident to hit that would be a month x. or of year x. that no matter what the outcome the people drawing their troops i don't think so it was a huge misjudgment but now that has occurred we've got to make the best of it i don't
4:42 am
personally feel you see every american every professional realized soldier leaving afghanistan between two thousand and fourteen two thousand and fifteen numbers will the course and infrastructure will be will be will be rolled down but there's going to be no i presence in afghanistan for the foreseeable future now is that and so damaging. well you can look and the tenet of military strategy or operations at the operational and strategic level allows you to say that your enemy this is when we're going to surrender that's not war patrick thank you thank you very much and.
4:43 am
a very warm welcome to you this is your news today protesters on the. streets they are. essential and something to chew says it's a good book except that's a big huge experiments given. you see this rap music in which it goes to the military trying to make sense of relief and it's all changed things as my next attempt. to maintain a confidence in markets and. wants to be seen trade imbalances recession look maybe missions close to sing a song like close. something else we played the game feel a little like think is the west black diamond. in the box isn't the argument for me i'm just programs increase the total economy.
4:44 am

4:45 am
officially declared liberation following the day out of ousted leader of the monarchy dopy but questions remain over whether the price paid in the form of lost lives and ruined infrastructure it was too high. more than two hundred people are reported dead after a powerful earthquake in eastern turkey it's fear the death toll could reach thousands as many people remain trapped under rubble. the search for a solution to that he is described as at a summit in brussels bringing no breakthrough that's while in the u.k. there are growing calls to leave the block altogether as the parliament prepares to vote on whether to hold a referendum on the issue. and here with a sports of bait so for the first time ever there is a european golfer topping the american money list what does that mean he did there is what a year it must be to you for he not only is topping the american money list he probably will top european money list as well in golf all this money plus he's
