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 tradeoff 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 i.d. cards something that was said would help stop illegal immigration and terror and 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 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 and 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 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. in metric we've got other examples of day to day citizens who have 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 that's all but what can be done now to reinstate persons leprosy 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 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 record of violent crime has gone up that's just i think a few of the. of the kind of things and the way we can change the conversation that
the state has with its 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'm hoping we can reduce the level of pre-charge detention i love to see strength and jury trial in this country we've had the first criminal trial without a jury for four hundred years recently and scaled 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 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 abbas process prosecutorial strategy more use of plea bargaining and lift the ban on the use of intercepted it's 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 up 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 who 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 well 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 and d.n.a. whether whatever it may be just not there in countries like bulger will remain but 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 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 fortunately 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 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 could scrutinize every decision that comes up very carefully look 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. 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 well i think it's too late for a referendum although 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 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 via 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 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 and what i said is that 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 e-mailing me this is 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 for my website because very user friendly inaccessible but this is really all about is me saying look actually an m.p. has a limited amount of time and we work hard was a huge amounts into. 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 pits a path to tape ping pong with lobby groups and their phone e-mails i don't think that's serious business and you'd be amazed at how many people have emailed me to say that they agreed to what do you think the biggest threats to civil liberties in britain today is i'm not sure there's a single biggest threat but for me a report of a journalist put it quite well he said we seem to have lost all liberty refix 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 to offer free space and i think that what the last government which was very cunning and surreptitious was to buy it so on the sly sell freedom and there's not one big thing because 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 text 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 we're getting a bit 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 literacy i think is a little bit about i think the media are a much more acutely sensitive to it 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 we've picked off one by one of these 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 the tradition of liberty we have in our country otherwise children are going to find themselves growing up in a in a very different kind of society with a very different kind of culture. very much thank you. wealthy british style sun it's time to. market why not. come to. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines in two cars a report. forty two thousand americans die each year from car accidents only
