12:33 pm
i'm talking to gerald batten who's a member of the european parliament for london he's with the u.k. independence party which is a euro skeptic party and he's recently announced his intention to stand for leadership of ukip thanks very much for talking to r.t. you're welcome just but you won't write one small point in your introduction you describe this as a euro skeptic party that's not true skepticism implies some doubt we have absolutely no doubt we're one hundred percent membership of the european union is bad for britain so we're not skeptical about that and no disbelief in the fact that the european union actually exists or we believe it exists i mean we're skeptical about life after death but as far as the european union exists and it's bad and there is no doubt in any ukip members mind that that's the case and tell me about the platform on which you're standing for leadership my platform is that i want you kit to go forward as
12:34 pm
a radical alternative to the kind of cross party consensus that we've got in this country from labor conservatives and very much now with a coalition government that they're quite happy to see this country become nothing more than a colony of the european union and one of the key tenets of your opposition to the european union well first of all it's it's an economic and democratic disaster first of all there is no reason for the european union i mean the white soul was sold to people forty years ago and has been ever since is that we must have it to try and jobs we don't need it for trade jobs even the even the european union has backed down from what we need is trade with europe and the rest of the world friendship and cooperation we don't need to be members of this vast bureaucratic organization in order to achieve that the other thing is the loss of democracy which although membership the costs billions of pounds every year which is why state money was actually worse than that is now loss of democracy the germans calculated in two thousand and six that about eighty three percent of new laws now
12:35 pm
come from the european union. not from the. parliament and in this report i question whether germany would be really cool function democracy because it's for all it's equally true for the u.k. a similar tone of qatar the country eighty percent of our laws now come from the institutions of the which is not democratic so how can we be a democracy and as you know i've been involved in things like the integration of the legal systems and european arrest warrants we're losing our most basic protections under the law against unjust imprisonment and arrest all kinds of things are happening now which are totally insupportable in my view and the european union has the mission to become a super state to rival united states and i think it's a very wrong road for us to go down and britain should leave as soon as possible and we are living in a globalised world there is it possible for the u.k. to just step out of the but what does that mean what are the global laws will means in the early nineteenth century we actually exported more goods around the world
12:36 pm
than we do to die there was international trade then that's nothing new that's always been going on it's much easier to get on an airplane now and go anywhere you like very quickly which is one of the reasons we have such a problem with uncontrolled immigration that kind of globalisation it's a reality that doesn't mean to side that you have to sacrifice your independence and self-government governance in the modern world in fact quite the opposite i think the problem with the modern world is that people are losing their control over their elected representatives and their governments and we're becoming less democratic i think necessarily a bad thing you have said in the past that the e.u. is an illegal state can you explain what you meant by that yes because under the lisbon treaty it basically became the constitution of the european union now another change the name it was called the constitution but it's ninety nine point nine percent the same as the old constitution we have a constitution in this country written down in different places like for example the sixty nine hundred bill of rights which says that the solving is the it is the
12:37 pm
form of all. i'm a sovereign cannot acknowledge a higher power and i will you're a monarchist or republican it doesn't matter that's our constitution what we did with the with the with the lisbon treaty is we acknowledged the officially a higher authority the union for example now has a legal personality has only come by treaties on its own so that in fact means that in britain we are living under any legally constituted government and as far as the rest of europe is concerned it's illegal in my view because they didn't ask the people of europe whether they want to or not because when they had referenda on the old constitution lost them in france and holland the only country that voted for the ones that you know so much of the e.u. budget they didn't want to risk leaving so more of you were living in a completely illegally constituted state in britain the const the constitution of europe on the lisbon treaty is illegal and this is a very dangerous road to go to. talk to me about their legal integration taking place in the e.u.
12:38 pm
particularly about the european arrest warrants european arrest warrant is the first part of the process whereby we are integrating our legal systems with those of the european union and of course what you remember is that the anglo-saxon common law or model adopted by the united states and canada and us and countries around the world is completely different from the continental napoleonic system now under our system you have to be charged with a specific offense the police have to gather the evidence before you're arrested goes to a trial we have corpus all these things that we take for granted on the continent you can be arrested as a suspect you can spend a year eighteen months in prison while i investigate the case before i even bring it to court against you now under the european arrest warrant we got rid of all the safeguards now if you are required for extradition under the european arrest warrant the court deciding on that has really little power to refuse it they're not allowed to look at the profile. evidence they have to take all legal systems around the equally valid and non-corrupt. just the rest of it so if you stand in that cost
12:39 pm
of something which might be totally absurd there is nothing that a british court can do to stop people being extradited they have very very limited powers now what's also in the pipeline is things lightly european investigation order so we've got that coming on trials in of sent here which means that anybody can be tried in a in a european country not even particularly aware that this trial is going on they are supposed to let you know but that's why they can't contact you can suddenly find the british police turn up on your doorstep ever arrested you. deport exploit you to many bug area any country in the european union and you will go straight into the prison system and the legal system will not be able to protect you and of course all this is going to be presided over by european public prosecutor europe all the. the nice and european police force which very insert interestingly in its charter has complete immunity for anything or its
12:40 pm
offices have complete immunity for anything that they do or anything that in the course of their duties now even the n.k.v.d. in stalin's terror didn't have that protection against against recourse if they did something wrong technically anyway but this is what we're lining up for ourselves and we are destroying our own legal system at the same time the u.k. in certain courses is accused of fanning the flames of nationalism i'm thinking particularly of your invitation to dutch politician gutfeld it's to come to london which caused quite a lot of trouble in the streets during his visit what do you say today's planes will nation is we believe in the nation we believe in the democratic sovereign state is the best way to govern affairs in a country in a country that wants to be a country you know united kingdom this is not three different countries in a northern ireland actually want to be part of a union and while people want it works and other countries have a different basis of what constitutes
12:41 pm
a nation that's for good will that he didn't cause any trouble at all will this is a democratic politician democratically elected who is not an extremist if you actually bothered to look he's actually defending liberal democracy against extremist people because in the trouble outside the house of commons i went outside often because i had lunch with mr will there's another woman with the extreme left who were verbal ie attacking the english defense league who had nothing to do with work with resigned or who on the other side of the street so as usual it was the extreme left who was stirring up the trouble and trying to cause violence and confrontation and you know some unscrupulous commentators and then accuse the world of sort of extreme which is totally untrue mr wallace on a number of occasions i wouldn't have anything to do with him if i thought he was an extremist but i think he's actually a heroic person but at the risk of his own life he lives under twenty four hour police protection i went out. for dinner with him in and we had four armed police officers sitting that's the next table and why is that it's because he's trying to
12:42 pm
defend the democratic liberal values of western society against islamic fundamentalist extremists who want to overthrow that and introduce sharia law and islamic fundamentalism in western countries you know you kipps party spokesman on immigration what's your view on a cap on immigration it's nikkei immigration into our country has been out of control for a very long time now purely on the numbers basis we are one of the most about the most densely populated country in europe i think slightly behind holland and you can take more drugs it's a special case we are one of the most densely populated countries in the world if you actually look on a league table and yet our population is set to grow from sixty two million currently up to seventy million within the next twenty odd years and thereafter up to eighty eighty five million exponentially it is absolutely absurd to have effectively unlimited and uncontrolled immigration into this country what we have
12:43 pm
anyway from within the european union where we can't stop people coming even wanted to and we don't really control it from outside either so yes you have to have very strict controls the time has come to say this we need an end to mass immigration we need controlled immigration on a very limited level and only where benefits britain its people and its economy a recent report has shown that with a cap on immigration british companies might find themselves short of workers particularly as some immigrant workers are more highly skilled than that but his counterparts what do you say to that oh yes i mean i know quite a lot of foreign people especially me come to work with a highly qualified the got a great work ethic they're lovely people but if you look at the number of jobs created in the economy ninety eight percent of the jobs created since labor came to power in ninety seven up until last year went to migrant labor now how does it benefit your economy. to create jobs ninety percent of them go to people who are moderates you increase the overall gross domestic product of
12:44 pm
a country but you're actually driving down the wages of the indigenous workers because people are coming in and working for lower wages so you drive the. wages down for indigenous people you poor housing prices up so everybody is actually worse off in the long run and of course big business loves. immigration because they get cheap labor that's what they want so i don't have anything against people who want to come here and better their lives i fully understand why they want to do that but it doesn't benefit the british economy or the british people to have this kind of immigration what we would introduce would be. very very limited immigration for permanent settlement and i've suggested a figure of no more than fifty thousand a year and even that could be revised downwards but people could still still come to work on a job permit basis for one to three years if we can't fill that post with an indigenous work and at the end of that process if the person wanted to become a british citizen by would have a right to apply for citizenship on the very on the you know the annual limit that
12:45 pm
