12:30 am
the european union every fortnight to the sum of a two hundred million pounds now that's not the whole picture because that is basically that's the gross contribution some of that money comes back as part of the overall net deal over which the treasury has a pair of limited say that's not necessarily well spent however. once you factor in the the direct and indirect costs associated with the you membership the overall bill for business and for the country could be as high as two hundred billion pounds a year the problem is that nobody knows this because there has not been a cost benefit analysis if you e.u. membership so there's a huge question mark there which the taxpayers alliance and other organizations are campaigning to get the answer to where does that money get a well a lot of it doesn't come back into the into the u.k. because the u.k. is after germany the second largest contributor to the the e.u. budget certainly in net terms and along with a small number of northern european countries it's one of the one of the few which are overall net contributors to a country like france it is much more i guess
12:31 am
a lot more back. bang for the book. so you could you could say that a lot of it goes in terms of subsidizing and upgrading the superstructure an infrastructure of eastern and southern europe which from a british taxpayers viewpoint one has to question is a british taxpayer contributing billions of pounds a year effectively to another countries that is not proper use of taxpayers' money so you're talking about one hundred ten billion euros which is an impossible think athame people to understand what does it mean what would it buy in real terms well let's let's narrow this down a little bit more i mean a hundred hundred ten billion euros is the overall cost including all the evacuations in the red tape so firstly in terms of the regulations and the red tape the cost of the regulations and red tape in this is based on the commission's own official commitment commission's own osa to sticks the cost of the regulations is for that in terms of the u.k. is good. than the actual value of the trade that is meant to regulate because the
12:32 am
regulations ten percent of the british economy which is our exports to the european union but actually cover one hundred percent of the u.k. economy eighty percent of it is internal ten percent is to the rest of the world so one hundred percent of the economy is paying the price of ten percent of all of what it's meant to regulate so that's one perspective the second thing is if you just look at the not the the cost of the regulations but the simple physical cost and the membership fee that is the equivalent of forming a chain along appear and dumping a block of gold off the end of it every one hundred seconds. it's a gold ingots every hundred seconds just cast into the watery depths and in terms of schools and hospitals which is something that the u.k. desperately needs to upgrade what about that now it's about a new hospital every three days i think it pays for the world family in two days i
12:33 am
think it's something like every five days is the equipment to repairing every single cathedral in england and when we were doing the research for a book ten years on which is it looks hypothetically at where the u.k. would be indeed any country would be were we to leave the european union which is stop breaking down the that the benefits that we could be spending the money on other than into what's basically a financial sinkhole from the u.k. taxpayers point it's just distortion waste of money isn't it chair less in this sort of global economy to talk about british money for british people well not really because the british taxpayer of course is funding taxes and would naturally expect that the money to be spent on things which are of benefit to themselves i mean it's fundamentally old you know that that money and you talk about a global economy but of course the money isn't going to. say for north
12:34 am
america it's a it's a european system it's not a global system so we're short of having a global. economy with the european union if that's what you really like a lot of politicians say that it's just not realistic to mean the e.u. wholesale but you think differently we already have with respect to the european union about ten different levels of association with the european union you have countries which are full members such as france you have countries which have got certain dr such as the u.k. which is opted out of the single currency you have countries which are part of the european economic area such as norway you have countries which have slightly less of a kind of agreement because after countries. but i've gone less less far than not such as switzerland you have countries which have got bilateral trading agreements such as canada and mexico which could be a wide range of things and are very similar in style to the e.c. agreements accession agreements some years back without
12:35 am
a lot of the that that the burdensome regulations and that and the provokes attach that and you go way down that there's even a special form of association for countries like north korea now i'm not saying we should have a form of association with the that pyongyang has but what i'm simply saying is if you have ten different ways of of trading and alloying and a series cheating with with the source and you to do opinion there's a mechanism in there somewhere which is appropriate for any country and he doesn't have to be for membership and how would you characterize the u.k.'s relationship with the e.u. currently and how do you think it's in checking what we have to remember this is a perspective which is much broader than the now a perspective that politicians like to tend to focus on politicians when they talk about the european union talk about what's happening now what's on the agenda now what's on the agenda maybe in three months and what happened over the last couple of years actually the e.u. used to be the e.c. and it used to be the e.c. and before then it had a had a history of basically associated to agreements which predate the
12:36 am
the plan and the attempted creation of a of a of a european defense and it's got a long history and the key element here is to do it's all to do with the ever closer union which was indeed right from the outset within the preamble of the treaties now if you if you consider that membership of the club is to do with always going in one particular direction and you don't want to go in that direction then the obvious conclusion is you can only do one of two things you can either stop it and basically get to a stage where you are happy to live with the modus vivendi at that time but if that if it continues then the only other alternative is structural either club and form a new association after all if you were a member of a. golf clubs and your bills kept going up and you had to basically the rules change so that you had to invite people around to your house every sunday and you had to put a blogger's or you had to basically you know you had a number of things which kept being added to you took in conditions of your being
12:37 am
member of this golf that broader than just just taking off every now and again you would be happy with that so it's the same principle we live in a world they don't mean which is essentially dominated by superpowers the united states russert china and india don't just smaller countries of the european union need each other well absolutely not it's good that we're cooperating where we want to cooperate it's good that we're trading we're going to where we want to trade let's not kid ourselves i mean the european union is in the big picture it's big it's it's in danger of becoming a school or tech part of the world the voicing economies in the world of obviously in the far east india china and also you know brazil indonesia and other places now rather than linking ourselves too closely with one part of the of the world trading system which is decreasing in importance the u.k. or any european country should be more about being involved in a more proactive free trade across the whole world was them becoming part of a regional association which is risks becoming
12:38 am
a professional protectionist book now you could also argue that united states is or is a great a great will power and is very important for the u.k. and therefore if that's true why don't we you know more than me why don't we just sign up to become a state of the of the united states where nobody is recommending that so why on earth should we become part of the federal you say one of the things the canada and mexico have. signed an agreement with the with the us to form the nafta they haven't signed agreement to have a federal government that encompasses all of them they've created a different model different models do exist as young as a different model from that from the e.u. . there are different models enough let's not pretend it's odd that the e.u. or bolivia and there are lots of choices around there and if we are having a global trading network and into related post mcelhone age then then we shouldn't be too little not that linger and but little europe what we're seeing in europe at
12:39 am
the moment is the degree of social unrest in response to the austerity measures because of the debt crisis do you see that impacting not just on the same but on the european union as a political entity yeah and the sad thing is it was something that you were skeptics will warning about even while the eurozone was being created we were saying that if you're going to be creating a currency union then you have to have a full economic union in order to whether these the shocks and you have to have a model so that where there is an asymmetric shock in one part of the the either basically you can have the larger most on unemployed began to move from one part of the country to the other or you have large amounts of financial reserves which are able to support the area in a couple of examples which your views might be familiar with in the u.k. you have for instance you have a single currency oh it's called
12:40 am
a pound. and if liverpool is in recession what happens is because there is social mobility in the u.k. people from liverpool go and find a job in manchester or down in london or whatever and also you have a central government which pays part of the tax revenue into liverpool in order to i'm regenerated now people accept that because there is this sense of of a democrats the sense of common citizenship in a sort of sharing together we don't get in the you same way in the states if chicago is in recession but california is booming then people move from chicago to california and the federal government puts money in support of new york now you can argue the pros and cons about federal levels of federal agents arrested. but the simple truth is that united states is a federal system which has twenty times the federal spending power of the european union twice for having that sort of model which is more or less an effective economic system is too high for the political the different governments who are
12:41 am
creating an economic union because of knowledge that overtly that it was a european superstate with a huge central bank and large amounts of central taxation being spent of course as a price too high to pay but because the idealism is paramount people went ahead without all the same to us and it's paying the price today. thank you very much thank you. dear mom i'm sorry that i had to do this i've been in so much pain in the past year that i can't take it anymore the stomach and chest pains have been getting worse and no doctor has been able to help me please know that i'll finally be at peace
