and actually now we see lots of changes indeed here in france but unfortunately not always for the better so where is france going 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 grave unemployment has 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 it we just need to cut government spending but it only works if your income comes from salary the state 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 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 have 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.
tory 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. they also impose financial diplomatic and military policies on all european countries a good example of the 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 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 two people in london 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 and. 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 the situation and said we will look into this again alas foreign minister mr fogg 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 that 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 or into smaller hotbeds of instability like somalia sudan iraq or afghanistan. or do you think france fredricka is serious 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 a dictatorship it doesn't seem 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. just as in international relations this is the role we should
play instead of taking sides about. 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 arland 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 a misunderstanding and a few months into his term the french have already started to 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 is it going to stay like that is will status quo remain of holes debates 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 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. but what future you see it 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 the case was far from democratic. ok as i understand you say that the european union is the biggest threat for france but can france actually resolve its economic problems without european union. 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 euro zone 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 that have been successful thanks to the e.u. many people believe that airbus an area on 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 we'll improve. you also known as a harsh critic of another membership of france's number seven. why. nato
was created in one thousand nine hundred 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 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 community all around the globe france is home to the biggest muslim community in the western europe around five million people is there anything here 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 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. 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 but it would. i never thought i could earn a living this way. natale issue of oil is the norm or should test small arms so those photos to machine building plant not are the source to count of all the weapons she's fired over the past twelve years. i got so used to it sometimes my friends ask me to join them at the rifle range and i say no wait i'm so tired of

a proper resistance i think the real for them is a winning maybe they should be more stronger. we are not on top of that they don't know what they have to do and we just hope that they are going to find a great solution. let's talk tennis where a viral infection has forced to withdraw all of defending champion patrick defeats of from the year ending w t a championships in this town bowl the czech is being replaced by world number nine history in some stores or. i mean i never returned from torture and i meant. experience even then of. yeah i mean i don't like to. her but. for me meanwhile maria sharapova is storming ahead in her quest for owners in turkey to advance her latest victim with the russian making it to them to our courts aging the first seven five but was for to die in the second before battling

any of us and most of us could reach this level the gifted midfielder was once denied by some coaches in russia but he proved he deserves a second chance now it's time to take it to the next level and i think russia will do very well of the twenty thousand world cup especially if they pay more attention to young and talented players. get elected has already learned one of the greatest lessons in life try not to waste the chances you are given and there will be very little you can the cheer. about but unknown r.t. . why not obvious all your sport seize it. go for.
