this is are you going to live from moscow armory to joshie welcome to the program. british intelligence has been trying desperately to keep its surveillance practices secret wary of public anger and legal challenges that's emerged from classified internal documents leaked by edward snowden and obtained by the guardian newspaper but as our geezer of first reports the spy agency's worst fears are already coming true. these latest documents reveal the long fight the g. c. h. had against making insists that evidence admissible in criminal trials now one of these memos detailing that g c h t's main concerns with reference to agency practices and the extension scape of the would lead to a damaging public debate now ironically of course that public debate already taking place in the at the moment on the back of those edward snowden revelations and for
the first time in a few weeks we're going to see the head of m i five and six and he giving evidence in public now that will be broadcast by a fast like link although there will be a short delay now perhaps you'll see as this public debate unfolds wheeling out some of the media friendly people the documents also revealing that they had a list of people they could rely on for press handling but the guardian newspaper really pulling no punches in their piece today saying that the revelations once again calling into question the lack of effective legal protections when it comes in thirteen of our communications and calling this a breach of trust by the u.k. government on the grandest scale. while on the sol follows a storm in brussels triggered by revelations the u.s. has been spying on his european allies france and germany voicing their anger over

hide behind the secrecy that's enabled those abuses to continue themselves is cowardly quite frankly in a democracy and if these programs are poured into national security as they claim and are in fact compliant with the constitution which they are not they should survive the light of day and it's no longer overdue for congress to have a transparent debate about whether or not we want to live in a country with prevailing pervasive surveillance or instead we actually mean it when we sing anthems at baseball games about living in the land of the free. for more. on the n.s.a. spying fallout head to our website and we've got full coverage on the journalists activists supporting the stop watching us campaign against surveillance on our. friday summit in brussels britain failed to persuade the e.u. leaders to curb what it sees as pointless regulations that's after a new report detail do have

around ninety five percent of the expected benefits totally failed to materialize but this study only covers the top one hundred others it's just the tip of the arts . and regulation which doesn't include. it is just red tape obviously if britain left the e.u. tomorrow those costs wouldn't just disappear but at least say critics it would be british regulation of the british people. and many see cameron's proposals for reform to this european summit as his first step in trying to change the balance of power with brussels ahead of the referendum he's promised the british people. who catches an eye on america's expanding waistlines.
