things like that i think we've seen a whole so shift in the relationship between the state and citizen and that's what we need to change it is a bit of a dichotomy there isn't it the government have to be seen to be protecting people but at the same time protecting their individual liberties have they overstepped the mark well that's it i mean the last government it was typical played a lot of politics with this and they presented this is a sort of seesaw trade off and yet when you looked at the measures one by one they were did all freedom to very little for our security the proposal to extend attention that charge to ninety days was not justified on the evidence that we actually saw about police investigations id cards something that was said would help stop illegal immigration and terror and terrorism as well it was very clear when we looked at both the the very vulnerable design of the cards but also the way the system would work in practice allowing foreign nationals to come in for three months before they'd need a car well that's no use to stopping terrorism so the real danger is that we've given up a lot of our freedom and it hasn't made us any safer top the argument of course is
that if you've got nothing to hide you've got nothing to say where do you stand on that i just think they've been too many examples of injustices i think too many people have found themselves on the wrong end of the state through very arbitrary action whether it's the market trader endorsed and fined and given a criminal record for selling in selling vegetables in pounds and ounces rather than. metric we've got other examples of day to day citizens who've come up against the harsh justice of the state and i think it's about time we start standing up for the british citizen and i don't really like the slogan at all but what can be done now to reinstate see where you're seeing a range of things to go home of his counter-terrorism review which is great we've seen the new coalition government scrap id cards i spoke out very very much in favor of that there's a whole freedom bill that we're going to be debating shortly a great opportunity to repeal some of the draconian legislation and some of the unnecessary legislative graffiti that we've seen littering. parliament over the
last thirteen years we've had three thousand new criminal offenses hit the statute books but it hasn't come up violent crime police recorded violent crime has gone up it's just i think a few of the example of the kind of things and the way we can change the conversation the state has with citizens what is this freedom bell well it's a piece of legislation it was in the coalition agreement it's going to be coming out later on i think this year or early next year and it will be i'm hoping we haven't seen the details but a range of things that will be repealed i'm hoping that we're going to look at control orders i hope and we can reduce the level of pre-charge detention i'd love to see it strengthen jury trial in this country we've had the first criminal trial without a jury for four hundred years recently and scale back some of this intrusive surveillance as well it sounds a lot like this government will be dedicated to undo ing a lot of what the last government did without actually having any kind of original ideas that say well i'm not sure that's true i think protecting british liberty is a fantastic tradition of you've got in this country but i think it's also very
relevant to what we've got today but the idea is to have less law so you're not going to create new laws are going to try and get rid of some of the old stuff but i do think it's important that we actually take stop presenting this thing as a debate between having on the one hand security and liberty on the other hand one of the things i'm going to be talking about in the next month is the importance of strengthening the justice system not just so that we've got the safeguards that protect the citizen but the so we can use it to take the game to the terrorists i think we should have a much more a boss prosecutorial strategy more use of plea bargaining and lift the ban on the use of intercept evidence so there's also new ideas and i hope some of them will get some favorable reception from the home office in the government as a whole things like the european investigation or seem like they would make it easier for terrorists and other criminals to be prosecuted you're white surely that's a good thing be great if it was limited to counterterrorism that would be perfect great but it isn't and we've seen the european arrest warrant we go. from twenty
four requests coming to britain in one year to over a thousand and i'm afraid there's a lot of british citizens who are either innocent or against whom the charges are very shaky being swept up in this and i feel the european investigation order would only exacerbate that risk because what it basically allows is for an investigation of the origins to demand not request demand british police forces of cash cash strapped at the moment going under all sorts of pressure with a tight budget situation is going to demand that they prioritize every one of the requests they get that's bad news for the enforcement but i also think it's bad news for the british citizen because the protections around that data whether it's bank records of d.n.a. whether whatever it may be just not there in countries like bulger area will remain from that perspective it's not really looking very good is it william hague the foreign secretary has in fact further into the european investigation of what if it was the home secretary but but you're right it doesn't take these decisions a whole i think in fairness they were landed with a very poorly drafted text and
a very quick decision to make the decision they've taken is that they will opt in and then continue negotiating and try and remedy the defects i think that's very difficult when you talk to and you lose your negotiation leverage but you know unfortunately they got this this decision loaded on so that without having to be able to influence the preliminary stage of the of the text the directive and i'm afraid it's one of those decisions which i think regrettably we ought to the more we should have stayed out i can you see any hard evidence that this government will stop the transfer of those kinds of powers to the european union well we've already said we got a review of extradition ongoing there are some things that we can do without going to change the european arrest warrant decision so that's one thing i think you are hearing a different conversation but what we need to do is and this is the point i made in parliament about the scrutinize every decision that comes up very carefully look if there are sensible or enforcement measures we should be take. in partnership with
our european colleagues let's do it but we also need to scrutinize the protections for the british citizen and also the norm for impact that it will have what do you support a referendum in britain at this stage as to whether we should carry on being a member of the european union when i think it's too late for a referendum on that i think at some point and of course once that is britain has been treaty entered into force the whole issue of the referendum became legally moot politically it's still a very hope and i think you know listen the very you know short clear what our position in terms of the coalition position it's not it's not in the coalition programme for government but david cameron made it very clear in the run up to the election the conservative position was that we would try and alter the terms of trade the conversation between britain as a nation state and brussels if the end of that period we're not getting the answers and the kind of change of direction that we want the referendum question could come back onto the table i suspect the referendum look which we're going to be introducing by legislation which will prevent any further transfer of power without
a referendum within the medium term at some point make some kind of referendum inevitable now you came under fire thought for your email address to be removed from various websites how do you defend that someone who supports freedom of information first of all what i own is one lobby group to stop sending me i bombardment of emails. there's a system a device they set up which allows them to send you clone emails and so i was getting hundreds and what i said is look can you just take me off your list very politely was no and then the question was why and one of the reasons why is that i was advised if you have your email address in the public domain you can all these lobby groups to stop emailing me this basically junk so that's what i mean what my email address is available people can e-mail me my office has been very accessible via my website i've just been nominated for awards from my website. because it's
very user friendly inaccessible but what this is really all about is me saying look actually an m.p. has a limited amount of time and we work hard there's a huge amounts in terms of demands on the time what i want to do is prioritize my constituents the ones that are in the greatest need the issues that i think voted to deal with and not play pits a pattern ping pong with groups and their clone emails i don't think that's serious business and you'd be amazed at how many people have emailed me to say they agree to what do you think the biggest threats to civil liberties in person today it's i'm not sure there's a single biggest threat but for me reports of journalists put it quite well he said we seem to be lost on liberty reflex and i heard phil johnson from the other end of the media spectrum from the daily telegraph say this they say something similar today we used to instinctively react against the state's incursions into our freedom to offer free space and i think that what the last government which was very cunning and surreptitious was to be so on the sly some freedom and there's not
one big thing which is the culture change that happens when you gradually eroded free speech when you gradually erode the justices system when you gradually extend detention without charge we've got to do i think the single biggest challenge is to stop scrutinize text the case but these new laws these new powers and one of the suggestions i had today was i need to have one queen's speech every five years in a parliamentary term that maybe you can get too far but i certainly would like to see a sort of chilling effect on the legislative hyperactivity we saw in the last government do you think that's the fault of an apathetic population that isn't really taking any notice of a slow but steady erosion of liberty i think is a little bit about i think the media much more acutely since to now on both sides of the political spectrum it's the guardian of the daily mail the very conscious of this issue now but of course it affects one person at one point in time they may complain about it they may try to raise the profile of. of injustice but we picked
off one by one as individuals in different ways in different parts of our life and and civil liberties always being inherently vulnerable to that kind of. abuse what we've got to do is recognize it as a much bigger issue and protect that tradition of liberty we have in our country otherwise children are going to fund cells growing up in a in a very different kind of society with a very different kind of culture. wealthy british style stock. market why not. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger or a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines kaiser reports.

the end of the season in l.a. to scare the hell feature took a closer look at the big spenders from st petersburg. brushless northern capital st petersburg is a home to star athletes like a boxing giant make alive although if olympic figure skating champion it gave me permission go and of course arsenal's striker andre out of shopping and in the last couple of years the city's ice hockey team had been accumulating some players including from the n.h.l. to stake a claim for the guarin cup. first off scot is an old solid yet no russian abbreviation which means the central club of the army hence the nickname army man even though today the players are far from being an activity in minutes right now let's jump straight said that history this team has never been crowned champions in either day us is a russia however it's becoming increasingly evident that scots are becoming russia's next major ice will get powerhouse the club's joins it said star studded roster

us we have the capabilities to feel just which we have to make to be amongst those best for the best teams and that's we're fighting for you getting a back up spent ten years in n.h.l. san jose sharks where he became an all time goaltending leader in several categories but he star status seemed to have put a major strain on the management's wallet so after becoming a free agent at the end of last season he promptly signed a four year deal with st petersburg sparking competition among all of the cape shells forwards as to who will score at least a goal against the two thousand and eight world champion however that's nothing to get used to according to an a book of sunday's each of all of entering the game and especially now in this league where there are a lot of good teams and have a lot of surprises and sometimes people expect you to win every single game and almost one of all the teams out then but it's not easy and i have to challenge
yourself every time and. so far as that's a challenge that we try to face. plenty of ice hockey experts in russia have already got scot free because berg is the cage shells dream team however such compares it really serves any team in any sport any real justice because of a hockey league season is still young if you are doing pretty well so far and hopefully there will be just as happy in april of twenty eleven as they are now remarked culture of archie st petersburg. meanwhile in the k h l on this thursday night starting a more came from a goal down to beat new to him make for one elsewhere fast forward five times in the third period to clinch a six two away victory over metal leg novokuznetsk and severe heat after may be released on polar ice five to. getting on to football and the sale of english premier league club liverpool has once again been stalled as american owners george
