8:30 am
here with me today is a french politician former presidential candidate and now the head of the popular republican union here in france. thank you very much for being with us thank you for inviting me mr sort of not one of mr allen's complaint slogans was change is now that was the most important slogan actually of the whole campaign and actually now we see a lot of changes indeed in france but unfortunately not always for the better so where is france go in right now. this situation is complicated at the moment and we'll get even more so it's not just in france but all euro zone countries look at what is happening in greece italy spain portugal arland france is somewhat better off than those in the south but the situation here is great on employment has
8:31 am
surpassed the three million mark and things will continue to worsen. why is this happening because our economic policy is bound to create recession cycles the central strategy is to cut government spending apparently in order to balance the budget people often say there is a budget deficit so in order to balance or we just need to cut government spending but it only works if your income comes from salary the state's revenue comes from income tax corporate tax the eighty attacks on fuel but these largely depend on the level of economic activity in the country if you cut government spending stop hiring government employees if you lay people off if the government invests less then obviously social care systems will suffer unemployment will go up people without jobs will consume less they will stop driving and so on companies will sell less trade will decrease as a result the budget will receive less money from taxes the fuel tax corporate tax
8:32 am
the value added tax so it is very possible that there will be an even greater budget deficit even though government spending was cut now with the economic crisis and golf in europe france has also been shaken dramatically and mentioned that stat is an enormous budget deficit is to be in this situation how dangerous is this situation actually and when and why it all went wrong and who's responsibility or whose fault is all this the problems that could the problem is that the french people were robbed of all their major powers in the area of economic fiscal and budgetary policy taxation diplomacy and military policy all these powers were transferred to someone else. and mask who are these people those are there is the european commission in brussels the european central bank in frankfurt it handles the euro so this institution also pushes policies that lead to recession and finally nato and the i.m.f. which is based in washington d.c.
8:33 am
they also impose financial diplomatic and military policies on all european countries a good example of the u. . european approach to the situation in the middle east the syrian crisis it's very good that you mentioned syria and libya let's discuss a little bit france's foreign policy at the time of nicolas sarkozy the arab spring has just started and france has actually played has been very much involved and has played a central role in the libyan crisis what role does france play in the syrian crisis today. this is a difficult question because the coverage has been mainly one sided a few years ago nobody had a serious problem with the assad regime the syrian president was invited by nicolas sarkozy to attend french national day celebrations but somehow he is now the devil incarnate i am not trying to defend the assad regime but we get all our reports from the syrian observatory for human rights basically to people in london
8:34 am
presenting only one side of the conflict first of all i think the countries must observe international law and international law prohibits interference in the internal affairs of a foreign state so the first thing we need to do is to make sure that other countries don't interfere with the situations in syria and libya france no doubt has sided with the opposition but what kind of opposition is it the opposition that enjoys wide support and sufficient funding it gets arms from saudi arabia qatar and nato countries and the u.s. in particular as such the current situation can be described as external aggression against a sovereign regime not a civil war i think that the french government is biased i don't think it's trying to resolve this crisis in earnest despite a new government coming to power the wall and replace our cozy no major diplomatic changes occurred the reason is what i've already mentioned france is a member of both nato and the e.u. so every decision has already been made for us the new government should reassess
8:35 am
the situation and said we will look into this again alas for a minute. mr fab you said exactly the same as his predecessor mr assad has to step down and on what grounds can we make this demand look at what is happening in libya what's been happening in iraq since the so-called western intervention these countries are now hotbeds of islamism where christians are persecuted like iraq is a striking example hardly any christians live in iraq under saddam hussein they made up almost thirteen percent of the population what will happen to syria if we continue down this path the country might fall apart into emirates like libya into smaller hotbeds of instability like somalia sudan iraq or afghanistan. do you think france should reconsider its foreign policy. of course france should take a neutral stance and cease this policy of double standards remember the pussy riot case which started massive outrage in the west with western media calling russia
8:36 am
a dictatorship but it's similar to any sleep protests were raging in bahrain a tiny kingdom in the gulf seven protesters were sentenced to life in prison you see a life sentence is different to say the least from a two year sentence for pussy riot and all those bahrainis did was take part in a political protest but nobody in the west spoke of that because the u.s. fifth fleet is based in bahrain that country is protected by nato and this can no longer be tolerated and i believe that france should revert to its traditional policy of restoring justice in international relations this is the role we should play instead of taking sides. what has the new french president brought to people friends. mr all and got elected on promises he cannot keep it's a simple as that so what is going to happen is what's already happening mr owens does not have the resources he needs to change policies imposed by brussels the european commission or european central bank his election victory was a result of
8:37 am
a misunderstanding and a few months into his term the french have already started. i feel angry and i'm willing to bet my last dollar and please note i'm not at all happy about it that in a few months time the political situation in france is going to become very problematic isn't going to stay like this will status quo remain holes debate and criticism of the european system are not allowed in france legally you do have such a right but in reality you don't it's as if it never existed it is prohibited for all major french mass media outlets many french political parties criticize the e.u. and decisions coming from brussels normal democratic logic would be to discuss whether we should continue to be a part of this political structure or not our party is the first to offer its citizens the political possibility to step out of the european system to pull out of the treaty and by the way it is legally possible as article fifty of the e.u. treaty allows it but i should say that since creating this party i have run into
8:38 am
major difficulties in advocating my position in major newspapers and french media outlets the union only grows even though it's not functioning any longer switzerland and norway are not you members and they are better off than other european countries furthermore inside the e.u. sweden denmark and the czech republic are not part of the eurozone and they are fairing better than eurozone members there is no reason to believe that things will worsen if we pull out of the e.u. and the eurozone ok another dollar a fan of the european union but what future you seem to having. i am sure its future is bleak in any case people are now turning away from it for example fifty five percent of french voters opposed to the european constitution in a two thousand and five referendum but instead of saying ok our people are against it we need to have a real discussion to find out whether we really want to move closer to disaster we forced the european constitution on the people in the case was far from democratic
8:39 am
going overboard ok as i understand you say that your p. . is the biggest threat for france but ken france actually resolve its economic problems without european union. when you know the e.u. is aggravating our problems and not solving them and first of all every year france pours twenty one billion euro into the e.u. budget and the e.u. gives us from seven to fourteen billion back it means that every year we lose seven billion euro spent on funding you operational work or financial institutions that provide aid for eastern countries secondly if we leave the eurozone we will be able to determine our monetary policy on our own again to set interest and exchange rates none of which we can do now. thirdly people think that the e.u. makes a stronger but in what way. there aren't any examples of joint manufacturing projects
8:40 am
that have been successful thanks to the e.u. many people believe that airbus and arianne space launchers were the result of e.u. cooperation but that's completely wrong these projects are international and i support international cooperation there is also a moral aspect to the european integration crisis people understand that they can't control the process anymore we just need to take the power to determine our own future back into our hands and then moral will improve. you also known as a harsh critic of another membership of france's membership. why. nato was created in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine to counterbalance the soviet union does the soviet union still exist no moreover nato is engaged in the afghan war at the moment if you know what nato means nato stands for north atlantic treaty organization does afghanistan border the atlantic region nato has become a military alliance which is trying to impose its rules on the entire planet france
8:41 am
has always been known to stand up to empires. let's not change the subject completely. provocative low budget u.s. made movie insulting islam has provoked into western protests throughout. all around the globe france is home to the biggest muslim community in the western europe around five million people is there anything that they too could be inflamed . i think that it's quite possible that some french muslims are shocked and rightly so i believe most of them are shocked i don't think it can lead to mass demonstrations though but since you mentioned it i'd like to elaborate on the issue personally i'm shocked that in western philosophy there's a will to confuse freedom of expression with obvious insults to other religions i think this is all part of the course that i disapprove of it's not only about islam you know what happened in russia with the widely covered pussy riot case it's not only about freedom of expression there are agencies organizations anglo-saxon power
8:42 am
groups that are behind it poor thing all oil on the flames i can see that freedom of expression is regarded differently in different countries here in france we use what we call two sets of standards is often becomes a target for criticism but muslims themselves don't criticize other religions they don't do it because of one simple religious tenet moses and jesus are also considered prophets so muslims don't do that however there are some taboo topics in france which are never subject to criticism so before making any conclusions you need to find out who is behind all this we do have the right to advocate atheism or agnosticism but that's not what we see here it's something different someone is trying to sow seeds of discord and unrest poor oil on the flames on purpose with political and geo political motives in mind.
8:43 am
the variety that takes your breath away through eating across the scholar's it was a mohnish who do know the biggest salt lake in europe and more than two hundred species of birds that are also are on the verge of extinction on these islands in the south of russia they find shelter before migrating to all the parts of the world paladins as well as other species of the monish who do low feed and face these words are waiting for their parents to bring them food to the best cash for them is in a small areas of lake where the water is relatively fresh as fish cannot survive in the salt of the month and the lakes getting salt every year. to fish oil reservoir
