welcome back this is our to you live from moscow and here's a recap of all the names stories the cheers and jeers over a gruesome death with western media's euphoric reporting of get off he's killing his family wants nato to answer war crimes charges. fresh cautious says the answer wall street protests spread to police and opel out of california detained nearly a hundred activists and chased the rest off with tear gas and rubber rounds. the euro zone's fate hangs in the balance is e.u. leaders trying to stop squabbling and serve up a solution which could see the biggest plan yes it's tackle its runaway finances. europe's financial turmoil is intensifying calls in the u.k. to leave the struggling bloc that sarkozy discusses the prospects of that happening and the future of the euro zone and the british conservative party m.p. douglas carswell.
i'm in manchester with douglas cause well he's a conservative member of parliament he said the political system in this country is broken and in urgent need of reform he's also renowned euro skeptic douglas cause our thanks for talking to us we use this catch all term euro skeptic what does that mean old style euro skepticism in this country used to be about trying to take this country back it used to be an inherently conservative movement that was about trying to take us back to a sort of one nine hundred fifty s. status quo i don't have much truck with that at all i mean you're a skeptic because i want change and i want to really change the way this country is run i think fundamentally europe is in the mess that she is today because she is trying to do too much by conscious deliberate design the currency is a mess because it's a product of conscious design agricultural policy have fisheries policy trade policy you know we need to let go and we need to allow the different parts of the
european continent to do what suits them best incidentally i would say that that's why the european continent grew to global prominence in the first place it's precisely because we never had the political centralization that russia had that china had the mogul empire had at the autumn and sad that europe was allowed to prosper in the first place so we needed to centralize europe and i'm afraid i think that means rejecting the whole e.u. project completely so you think that person should leave the correct we should have an in out referendum and i would vote for us to come out of the european union the european union and one nine hundred fifty s. political structure it's an out gay trade architecture for a modern. you know when we joined the european union or what became the european union in the early one nine hundred seventy s. . western europe at that time accounted for thirty six percent of global g.d.p. today the european continent accounts so far less than that by twenty twenty it
will account for a mere fifteen percent of global g.d.p. we joined what we thought was a prosperous trade lot it turns out we shackled ourselves to a corpse i think we're better off and you thought about an in out referendum but isn't there a middle way where we have a trade relationship with europe that without any of the politics involved in effect if we had a new referendum and most people voted for us to leave the european project as it is we know that in your opinion and massive still be there we would still have people with whom we want to be good neighbors personally i would like us to continue to have free trade and free movement of people between our countries we would still have to cooperate but i think that can best be done through bilateral structures or by ad hoc arrangements. i would personally like us to stop being rather grudging tenants in the european. apartment and
become good neighbors to the european countries that are next to us we need good relations with continental europe but we're not getting them by being in india one hundred fifty s. apartment block despite the fact that the u.k. didn't actually join the euro but as taxpayers are still covering the currency to the billions of pounds is that wrong is absolutely wrong and we have found ourselves in the ludicrous position of having to bail out a currency that we chose not to join and i think it's wrong for us to have increased british liabilities to over twenty billion to prop up a currency that i think needs to be allowed to break up and it. within europe within recent years we have allowed new currency to be created when slovakia broke away from the czech republic they did so very simply by creating a new currency when argentina had pegged currency to the u.s. dollar turned out to be a disastrous mistake brought about by politicians and when a virus when eventually they had to break that link they were able to devalue their
currency just pulls on their debts and start again and as a result of that both slovakia and argentina are doing pretty well that i think is the answer for for greece portugal for ireland probably for spain and italy another way perhaps of looking at it is that maybe the german center of the euro zone should be allowed to establish its own currency whichever way you look at it it involves breaking up the euro and greece has recently said that it's not going to be able to meet its obligations certainly for the next year. how much the british bank. well british banks are liable for quite a lot of money billions of pounds at least that used to be regarded as quite a lot of money until our government started printing it but he's the case the british banks are going to take a hit and they're going to take a hit not because of some abstract problem in the euro zone they're going to take
a hit because their investment team's on their fixed income that bought greek and portuguese and other government debt that they regarded as fixed income but turned out to be a really bad investment now when my constituents buy shares in a company that badly run and lose money the government doesn't step in and underwrite their loss so i'm very very concerned that taxpayers in my constituency will be asked to bail out banks that brought this upon themselves now if if that is the case that we are going to have to prop up some of these banks because these banks have been so badly run such victims of their own greed that unless we do so our economy will disintegrate then at least let's prop up. the banks here in britain let's not channel all that money all the way of athens values been of other third party countries it's a problem really is that we don't want to allow banks in this country to face the consequences of their own fiscal folly then let's address that here in this country rather than channeling money through third party countries appraisal very well say
british money to bail out british banks but we are operating within a block. not not an isolated place yes of course there is a large degree of interdependence in the global economy and a good thing too but the idea that. simply because if banks if there is a default in the euro zone british banks will take it therefore we've got to keep on signing a blank check that's absurd i think think through the logic of that. ever since the bailout started eighteen months ago every single bailout has increased the amount of debt greece portugal and ireland well perhaps that exception but greece and portugal certainly have more debt today than they had when the bailouts began at what point do we realize that these bailouts are not helping these the first bailouts and histories that are scooping in labeling water into the boat eventually they're going to think it is sort of an almost an isolationist line here how does that tally with for example britain going into libya i mean isn't it isolationism
on the one hand expansionism on the other on the contrary if you think that what i said was isolationist i probably didn't make myself very clear i want britain to be a truly global player and not locked in a small room in the north west coast of europe doing everything with two or three other countries i want us to be truly global players it's rights that we're global players by virtue of locking ourselves in the diplomatic room with europe i think we have less influence than we would have britain after all has countries around the world that were once in effect offshoots of britain australia new zealand even india the rising power of india has a common. on a parliamentary system like our own we have so much in common with the world why are we shutting ourselves away from it it is the european project that is making us insular and isolationist and as i once talked about politics more generally is broken. but our political system i think has broken our political system i think in
effect what we have is there an eighteenth or nineteenth century system of parliamentary democracy trying to hold to account a twenty first century side government it doesn't work it doesn't work. well in the interest of the taxpayer or in the interest of getting the best public policy again and again and again people vote for something it's not delivered and the people that they vote for end up simply providing excuses as to why it doesn't happen i think we need more direct democracy we need instead of delegating decision making to politicians who then delegate power to the whitehall elites of the mandarins we need direct democracy so that people can choose things for themselves in this country my grandfather's generation used to have food rationing what they had in their larder at home in their kitchen was given to them by government those days are gone and a good thing few people can now choose for themselves what they eat they can choose
for themselves where they go on holiday they can choose themselves the clothes they wear why can't we have a little bit more choice about the public policy in which we dress ourselves as well as from the outside the situation in the u.k. looks pretty we've got corruption in the media media's close links to u.k. politics particularly the conservative party these old boys' network the political system is very slow to reform itself what kind of message do you think that people who are losing their jobs and suffering from speak up that you're absolutely right britain is not a series of crises of elites and we've seen from the m.p.'s expense candle from the hacking gate inquiry and the close luzhin allegedly between senior police officers and the media the banking crisis we've seen a series of crises where the political elite has got it wrong what all these crises have in common number one they were all unaccountable concentrations of power now what's extraordinary is that the age of digital democracy the age of the internet
allowed us to see what m.p.'s are doing with public money it allows the whole hacking thing to come out it allows people to hold to account the rich and the powerful not just in this country but throughout the world so i think in a sense although these crises. about that they show which way the wind is blowing we're going to have more openness in government unaccountable concentrations of power they exist in banking the media or politics are going to be broken open everything that the internet touches it opens up it opens up to greater accountability that's going to happen in politics and a very good thing to politicians minor like it political parties might lose market share to new entrants in politics and maybe more competition to decide who gets to be our politicians but this is a good thing direct democracy is good and what's preventing you from pursuing through the political reforms that you so clearly. i would like us to have gone much further in opening up the political system in britain to choice and accountability you might say we need our own version of glasnost we need to make
sure that the people in westminster are vulnerable to the wishes in the will of the people in a way that they're not we need openness we've gone some way to delivering that but we've not gone far enough and i think the reason why we're not on far enough is bluntly because it suits the political class to carry on with some of the unsatisfactorily things we we have at the moment we promised that we would allow the voters the power to recall. their own politicians they have it in california they have it in many american countries in fact most of your viewers i'm sure can be recalled from their line of work pretty much any day of the week yet politicians you can't sack them for five years and in safe constituencies even longer i would like to allow the people to directly hire and fire the political plus some changes have been made to make things better but not nearly enough and no prizes for guessing why that is thank you very much thank you.
