the whole so shift in the relationship between the state in the 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 was typical played a lot of politics of this and they presented this is a sort of seesaw trade off and yet when you look 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 fear where do you stand on
that i just think there's 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 that slogan at all but what can be done now to reinstate britain's legacy where you're seeing a range of things to go home office 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 all that and there's a whole freedom bill that we're going to be debating shortly 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. in years we've had
three thousand new criminal offenses hit the statute books but it hasn't come up violent crime police record of violent crime has gone up that's just i think a few of the example of the kind of things and the way we can change the conversation for the state has with citizens what is this freedom bell well it's a piece of legislation that 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 on hoping that we're going to control orders i hope and we can reduce the level of pre-charge detention i'd love to see strengthen jury trial in this country we've had the first criminal trial without a jury for four hundred recently and scale back some of this intrusive surveillance as well it sounds a lot like this government will be dedicated to undoing 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 god 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 going to create a new law you're 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 robust 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 your 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 has gone 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 authorities to demand not request demand british police forces 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 i think that's bad news for the enforcement but i also think it's bad news for the british citizen calls 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 will remain it 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 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 were 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 fortunately they've got this this decision loaded on to 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 do 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 if there are sensible or enforcement measures we should be taking 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 cement 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's 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 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 if you email address to be removed various websites how do you defend that as someone who supports freedom of information first of all what i own is one lobby group to stop sending me a 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. 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 very friendly user.
inaccessible but what this is really all about is me saying look actually the m.p. has a limited amount of time and we work hard there's a huge amounts in terms of demands a lot on 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 pitter patter tape ping pong with lobby groups and their phone 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 is 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 they say something similar today we used to instinctively react against the state's incursions into our freedom and to offer free space and i think that what the last government which was very cunning and surreptitious was to buy so on the sly some freedoms 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 scrutinise test the case for these new laws these new powers and one of the suggestions i heard today was i need to have one queen's speech every five years in a parliamentary term that maybe you can get it 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 sensitive to now on both sides of the political spectrum and 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 a justice but. picked up one by one as individuals in different ways in different
parts of our life 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 the tradition of liberty we have in our country otherwise all children are going to fund cells growing up in a in a very different kind of society with a very different kind of culture. thank you very much. i am. discovering. with the want to. become free.

a company running away with the russian premier league and football petersburg's ice hockey club sky are also out to compete for ana's in the kontinental hockey league and i have many reasons to believe why they should be in our latest roman culture of takes a closer look at the big spenders from russia second city. russia's northern capital st petersburg is a home to star athletes like a boxing giant make a lot of a loop olympic figure skating champion you get a pollution goal 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 top players including from the n.h.l. to stake a claim for the guarin cup. first off sky is an old soviet now russian abbreviation which means the central club of the army hence the nickname army man even though today the players are far from being on active duty in the military now let's jump straight said bit of history this team has never been crowned champions in either
the us as a russia however it's becoming increasingly evident that scots are becoming russia's next major ice hockey powerhouse the club's two hundred ten star studded roster being only one of the factors on the road. to success by scott and kontinental hockey league president alexander majid if explains it's what the former soviet union or the pros all would you know the rules so yeah but the losses over a number of points out of a season and with a wave of players who could demonstrates a skill so's i can finesse and. take a look on their full killfile about the evils of people for far away for a loser for his acquittal here are some names that might ring a bell for an avid fan of the national hockey league aleksei yosh and getting a box of moxie machine again if all these guys were at one point instrumental in their respective n.h.l. clubs for former new york i'd in their yosh and such kompany is obviously a plus in his hands for the guarin cup first of all it's
a lot of unsold but for my whole life i would say it's my kid. because i was fallen. for that it's a lot of guys played by pretty much i thought of a different. environment but that again it's. great seeing people you know as a fan so i try to start as you can on the roster was a lot of soul dollars and a lot of fast influence this place has been exciting to bear and you do well in the playoffs but i don't think the right to see you in twenty ten head coach ivan sonata picks up the reins from compaction a diary smith who led the team to second place in the regular season a longtime canadian ex-pat having lived in italy for the last twenty five years as a nazi admits that reading is syrian it is so far his biggest challenge in russia as for the game of hockey well desire to win is probably universal in any country

want to bowl teams out but it's not easy and you 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 already adult scott st petersburg as the cape shells dream team however such comparisons have a rarely served any team in any sport any real justice the continental hockey league season is still young and scarred them pretty well so far and hopefully their fans will be just as happy in april of twenty eleven as they are now ramon culture of r.t. st petersburg. and as he speaks thousand faces back at taking on second place u.h.c. dilemma at home where the school is currently one hole meanwhile earlier in the k h l study i'm all came from a goal down to beat you have to make for one meanwhile goring cup holders are phosphor five times in the third period and sixteen when. his nets c.b.s.
