with max cons or for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines kaiser reports. for the full story we've got it from. the biggest issues get the human voice face to face with the news makers. more news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images kobold has been seeing from the streets of canada. trying to corporations are the day.
top stories now the alleged russian victor boot is awaiting a decision on his extradition to the u.s. after a thai court cleared the way for a handover the family of the so-called merchant of death his life he may be forced into a confession. tipping the balance of journalism the international news networks of russia china and iran are a threat to the u.s. that's according to the chairman of the broadcasting board of governors the organization overseeing u.s. media directed at foreign audiences. the european parliament's divided over
washington's demands to provide more personal data of citizens so it says it could potentially terrorists traveling to the u.s. requirements include fingerprints d.n.a. samples and cross border pay. while some are asking is the euro on the brink of collapse and should the strong countries of the eurozone ditch the weaker ones. puts these questions to a member of the european parliament that is coming up next. i'm talking to roger helmer who's a you're a skeptic member of the european parliament he's very eminent he opposes to further integration with the european union and also supports renegotiating many of the e.u. case treaties with the right to have a thank you very much for talking to r.t. first of all how would you characterize the u.k.'s relationship with the e.u.
there's a big question we have always been reluctant members of the european union when we joined it we were told that it was merely a trading operation we had a referendum i voted in favor if i had known then what i know now i would have voted against. but we have this unfortunate feeling that on the one hand we don't like it very much we resentments and on the other hand many people think it's a long way away it doesn't affect me very much so let them get on with it. in fact of course it does intimately affect the lives of all of us and huge swathes of policy areas are decided in brussels not decided in the u.k. in my view it is making as poorer and less democratic and less free and i believe we would be better off out and do you support at this stage a referendum on being and if it were possible well i think we should stall with the referendum that every major political party in britain promised us which is the
referendum on the lisbon treaty what they're now saying is what it's been ratified it's too late no it isn't too late we should have a referendum saying do you accept the terms of the lisbon treaty or do you wish the government to renegotiate those terms and that would give i'm sure we get a renegotiation and so that would give the british government a very strong position a very strong mandate to renegotiate so that's what we want to do now the question that is also arising should we have a referendum in or out. i'm less clear there what the outcome would be. i think probably after a good campaign we would actually get an out vote but i'm less confident of it and of course if we had been in or out vote on the part of the people voted to stay in then i suppose the issue would be off the agenda for twenty years so from my point of view that is a high risk route i would just like to see the referendum that we originally were promised it always interests me to meet members of the european parliament who are
opposed to the e.u. as a construct how does that work well i'm often asked that question and there's a sort of underlying assumption that if you take the brussels shilling then you're all there to support them and sadly that applies to too many people it applies to the great majority of any p's and virtually all the stall for to do all the commissioners and so on i take the view that i'm not elected to support the european union and to promote it i'm elected to represent the interests of the people who voted for me and i recall that in the last election in two thousand and nine. a majority of voters in my region and nationally i think supported broadly euro skeptic parties or at least they believed that the conservative party was euro skeptic which brings us to the issue that in terms of the coalition government it's really failing to deliver on that expectation prime minister david cameron's position is here a skeptic didn't seem to be any doubt before he came to power that now it doesn't seem to be say claire i think it's tragic something that my colleague dan hannan
points out is that the higher people climb up the greasy pole the more sympathetic they become to large centers of power like the european union you take william hague he had a reputation as a clear principled euro skeptic great confidence in him it seems to me now that he's shifted his position he's trends that he's sort of prepared to accommodate he's prepared to come up with a few euro skeptic quotes from time to time but but actually we've accepted regular regulation of the city of london we've accepted the. diplomatic service we've accepted the investigation order we are passing powers to brussels arguably more quickly than the previous labor government did and i personally am deeply unhappy with that and william hague in fact expressly into the air pest occasionally i say i believe this treason may have actually signed it off but it was an unforced error we didn't have to we could simply have said no we could have introduced as with the
european arrest warrant we could have introduced national protections and safeguards in the way that some other member states have we just seem to roll over and play dead something like thirteen hundred i think british citizens were sent abroad under the european arrest warrant last year that's more than half of all the cases in the whole of the european union i've followed the case of a couple of my constituents who have been appallingly badly treated absolutely wicked the freedoms that we used to believe were inherent to english men and women have just been taken away from us so i think that the airplane investigation ought to and arrest warrant to something which is something which enables europe wide investigations to take place against criminals and potentially against terrorists that's got to be a good thing as a net it's intended to do that but what it does is it sets aside all of the safeguards and checks and balances that we normally associate with the extradition of criminals of course we know several agents to extradite criminals and terrorists
and we had those and they do take time because the safeguards take time but it's right that they should it is not right that innocent citizens should be sent abroad held in jail as in the case of my constituents for nearly three months tried acquitted then recalled because the prosecutor is appealing against the acquittal and now recalled for a third time one of them has been acquitted twice and is told he must go back again for a formal judicial process to confirm the acquittal for heaven's sake this man has had two years of his life ruined. despite the fact that two courts in rico because in regard to courts in riga have separately found him not guilty this is just unjustifiable treatment of british citizens let's talk about what's happening in europe at the moment recently we've seen a rise in protests against austerity measures what do you see that going forwards well i could see a long period all quite serious process and on rest. but the
political and broader economic questions are really very interesting we're seeing that the german people are becoming streamlet reluctant to be the bankers of last resort for the euro zone germans who retire at sixty five don't want to keep paying money to greece where they retire at fifty eight in order to maintain a mediterranean lifestyle so there's deep on happiness there. i think it comes down to the issue of the euro currency we euro skeptics have always said that the euro or the euro currency couldn't work because you had disparate economies with different economic cycles they can't all have the same monetary policy and therefore they can't all have the same currency and frankly for best part of ten years the euro seemed to work sort of all right and people say well you predicted all these disasters nothing's going wrong well no it has and this is exactly what we expected you simply cannot have germany on the one hand which has been extremely careful with inflation and wage rates and all those things in the same moment for
union places like greece and italy and spain which have been entirely profit and of allowed their unit labor cost to run out of control cease to be competitive. those countries want to do that he will germany want to revalue within a currency union they can't so some of the peripheral countries are going to have to peel off at the bottom or germany is going to have to get out of the top you could have a currency union probably of germany bend the locks for all. but the moment you put in all these other countries it just isn't going to work what's the solution that recently european central bank has said that countries opting out of the year is a would be committing economic and political suicide wouldn't be tantamount to suicide but they face a very hard choice because staying in they're going to have the most desperate. getting out are the first to admit they're going to have desperate problems it's a choice between two evils and i'm in this difficulty to say which is the greater
evil but they in a sense they don't they may not have a choice because the bond markets may decide for them. and i personally think that a country like greece would go through a period of desperate pain if they left they would certainly have to default or it's called as much polite of the default but they have to do something like that but basically people let money greece would have to take a haircut and probably quite a substantial haircut but that's roughly what happened to argentina or whatever it was the nine hundred ninety. and it's terrible at the time but the country comes through and actually it's much better off afterwards it's just like when britain left the exchange rate mechanism you know it was called black wednesday suddenly in retrospect we realize it was goldman wednesday because we had a long period of sustained economic growth because we got our currency back to the right level that's what greece needs that's what spain needs a violin needs. committed for this weekly emotionally psychologically to the euro
project but they they dare not bring themselves to make that leap they may be forced to make it by the markets and when they do that i think will be the point at which the european union. it starts to unravel because they've invested so much sort of like lord of the rings you know all the power is in the ring and when the rings dissolved it's gone all the economic and political motivation of the european project comes to a central point in the single currency when the single currency starts to break up calls big questions to be asked about the about the viability of the union so you see this affecting the economic and political union as a whole yes i don't think the european union can last forever. i like to compare it to the us i saw a comparison to fall but there are a lot of factors essentially both the u.s.s.r. and the european union have decided to create structures that ignore the identity and aspirations of the people and eventually the aspiration and identity of the
people reassert itself the soviet union lost what was it about seventy years the european union has just lost it about fifty years. and i wouldn't be at all surprised to see the same pattern i think in twenty years time there may be something that's called a european union but i think it will look very different and be much less input influential than it is today and yet becoming a member of the euro is a is still something that countries aspire to estonia well become a member in january yes i think a stone is very unwise to do that. i could see a case for a baltic currency union i mean the one and a half million people that's very very small country to have its own independent currency although quite small countries like singapore and switzerland have independent currencies and redraw the world with them but there is a case there will be a case for baltic union there is not a case for a stone in my view being in the same currency union with germany aren't in greece want to have a thank you very much my pleasure. imagine
