question a very tricky question to ask in the first instance the treasury invites a check to the european union every fortnight to the sum of eight 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 the overall net deal over which the treasury has a very limited say so that's not a saudi well spent however. once you factor in the the direct and indirect costs associated with the u. 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 a 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 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 a country like france is much more i guess 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 country is that it's 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 hundred hundred ten billion euros is the overall cost including all the viking lation in the red tape so firstly in terms of the regulations in the red tape the cost of the regulations and red tape in this is based on the commission's own if. the computing commission's own of statistics the
cost of the regulations is if it in terms of the u.k. is greater than the actual value of the trade that is meant to regulate because the regulations cover 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 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 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 of ten years on which it looks hypothetically at where the u.k. would be in 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 viewpoint it's just search is astonishing 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. north 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 opterons such as the u.k. which is opted out of the single currency you have countries which are part of the you can economic areas such as norway you have countries which have slightly less of a kind of agreement because after countries. but have 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 a lot of the that that the burdensome regulations and that and the bureaucracy attached that and you go way down the line for this 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 way that pyongyang has but what i'm simply saying is if you have ten different ways of of trading and allying and associating with with brussels and you 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 it has 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 in 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 you had to have a history of basically associated to agreements which predate the over 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 structured either club and form a new association after all if you were a member of a. club and your bills kept going up and you had to basically the rules changed so that you had to invite people round 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 member of this golf club 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 date which is essentially dominated by simple pallas the united states russia china and india the 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 the world war than becoming part of a regional association which is risks hard to becoming a professional protectionist bloc 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 the e.u. why don't we just sign up and become a state of the of the united states when nobody is recommending that so why on earth should we become part of the federal you say one of the thing on the canada and mexico have. signed an agreement with the with the u.s. to form there and after they haven't signed an agreement to have a pay as of a federal government then comprises 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 and offer let's not pretend it's all right at the e.u. or bolivia and there are lots of choices around there and if we are having a global trading network and interrelated post mcelhone age then then we shouldn't
be too little not little england but little you what we're seeing in europe at 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 euro same but on the european union as a political entity you know the sad thing is it was something that you were skeptics who warning about even while the user 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 zone either basically you can have the larger moves on unemployed become 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. a couple of examples which
your views might be familiar with in the u.k. you have for instance you have a single currency it's called 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 the pool in order to 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 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 your now you can argue the person cons about federal levels of federal aid in the rest of it but the simple truth is that united states is a federal system which has what twenty times the federal spending power of the european union the price for having that sort of model which is more or less an
effective economic system is too high for the political the for the governments who are creating your opinion on that union because it had knowledge that over eighty that it was a european superstate with a huge central bank and a role for large amounts of central taxation being spent across place i was there was a price too to high. i but because the idealism is paramount if people want to head without all this i'm the us unexpected force today. thank you very much thank you. ma'am the leg. lifts the world to the. civilians contain explosives bacteria strikes the limits to see it's like the middle of the magic has better place in the

a hour until you margaret so we'll be adding some silverware to their collection on the van by the third day that vacant world super welterweight championship belt on the line at the cowboys stadium promoter bob stating looks as focused as ever ahead of the ballots but is hoping floyd mayweather jr resolves his mounting legal troubles for a mega match up soon with the filipino. there's only one fight that has priority and that's me with. that. weekend. for us is mayweather secondly more important than even mayweather is the judge. obviously you can't do a mayweather fight if the judge is going to schedule with trial. before so we'll see november mind you know find out what's going to happen with mayweather least of the judicial system but that's certainly. manny's first priority
ok another sporting spectacle will swing through arlington texas before that cowboys stadium though that twenty ten world series featuring the texas rangers the san francisco giants set for a start later on wednesday the rangers have far surpassed expectations this year with cliff lee instrumental in the win over reigning champions yankees to get to the finals the giants are seen here feeding the phillies to reach the big downside plenty of big hitters. to have closer brian wilson to look to as well of course they'll want to make the most out of the first two games in san francisco before they head to texas on the tuba thirtieth unless the series is a sweep the finals will head into november for the second straight year but only the third time in history. sticks i never thought just which sports you are would have been best suited for well scientists believe they have the answer to the very question the so name genetic passport robert for dani and got himself down to the
lab to discover more. sport a wonderful world where everyone strives to find the limits of their visible and mental capacity and sometimes goes beyond it with hard training always being a must on the way to success laden reserves of the human body can play an essential role in this respect keep in the secret key to the knowledge he's violent baled it's called genetic passport but the essentially it's a kind of a database containing all the necessary information about one's d.n.a. or geno that's the way we can find out nearly all about a person's genetic predisposition to certain diseases or deviations on the other hand it can be widely used in sport medicine as it helps us understand what kind of sport a person should go. according to russian scientists on three and

own genetic i.d.'s. as well as russian make spike and then you live there is a killer. they can instruct you have passed the genetic research and the fact is that martial arts turned out to be a very good choice for me a combination of speed and your ability that's what you need both in boxing and wrestling and friends of mine take my advice on what sport they should choose for their kids and they would often like them to follow me in the path of martial arts so the future is nokia's to do with science becoming more and more essential and in school cheating and where it will no to russia you just bring records you show. your t.v. finally hey may be gone but he's certainly not forgotten the tentacles of death catching up with the most famous seppala pod who ever lived that is of course paul the octopus now he was just two and a half years young paul dying on tuesday in this time in germany being born octopus
