6:30 am
it's two thirty pm in moscow these are the headlines from r t and you russian ad campaign turns to horrifying images of substance abuse to battle the country's addiction problem deformed unborn babies and children eating dirt these are just some of the shocking scenes used to get the message across. gangs nuclear program and a return to the negotiating table are on the agenda as russia's foreign minister meets his south korean counterpart this comes amid the heightening of tensions on the korean peninsula. and american activists accuse the u.s. of her pocket of see as washington demands the release of political prisoners abroad but keeps its own under lock and key among them is mumia abu jamal who's been on death row for almost three decades and many say he's innocent. the european superstate was supposed to herald safety in numbers but critics say the grandiose scheme has taken
6:31 am
a number of its members to the brink of collapse john gaunt head of the e.u. referendum campaign believes states are now better off out than in. today i'm talking to joel british media personality and heads of the referendum campaign he's demanding that the british people should be allowed to vote whether they want to remain members of the european union job to go in fact very much for talking to r.t. now first of all tell me a bit about the e.u. referendum campaign this is purely about getting our democratic right to have a vote because three leaders have promised as it was a labor party manifesto commitment by tony blair and gordon brown of course and then david cameron famously in oppositions gave accustoming guarantee that he would have a referendum on the subject so we'll show realized it was violence i thought yeah hold on this is wrong and i do believe we've been. neither are democratic rights so
6:32 am
that's why i'm involved in the you referendum campaign it would be costly to implementing a referendum on being an e.u. i mean the u.k. is already a member of the european union isn't it better just to let sleeping dogs lie yes he would be costly but it's costly to be in it it's costing the british taxpayer forty eight million pound a day to be in the we've just given on the island another seven billion pounds of our money for another four hundred fifty million pounds in the budget increase it's going to be even more than that so it's costly already and anyway i'm not saying vote to get out what i'm saying is let's have the discussion you know on the b.b.c. and on programs like this you know the pros and cons of europe so that the british public can decide whether they want to be in the and i must stress i'm not and certainly this campaign isn't and to european it's it is just saying be a let's have a vote let's have a democrat who are and i think democracy no matter what it costs it's
6:33 am
a price worth paying but you say you're not telling people how to vote but surely the very fact that you want a referendum suggests that you are not happy with the status quo and therefore want out or clearly clearly the reason we want a referendum is because we want the british public to decide and i would of course i personally will probably end up voting to come out but what i want more than that you don't want to have the big grown up debate about it i want the b.b.c. to fulfil its role to have both sides the argument properly discussed rather than just peddle as they have done for so many years the pro e.u. line we need to have an honest grown up debate who knows i might change may change my views i may begin to think the forty eight million pound a day would give you is good value us in one thousand but i'm quite willing to find out what i just believe in democracy i'm a democrat and i believe you know i ask you straight forward question i'll ask anybody watching this program give me three good reasons why we shouldn't have a right. friend i'm not people could give me three good reasons why we should stay
6:34 am
in the e.u. all three good reasons why we could should leave but i don't think people can come up with three good reasons why we shouldn't have a democratic vote on it well i'll give you one constitutional reason it the lisbon treaty you said successive leaders have promised a referendum of course that's true but since the implementation of it has been cheating that's become rather moot point hasn't it do you think we missed the boat on a referendum no i don't i think gordon brown had absolutely no right to sign the lisbon treaty stroke constitution it was the same thing the manifesto commitment by labels to have a referendum on that they played with words david cameron played with words once he got into power he said oh no we cannot win now because he's been ratified he could say he could have said yes we can just what nick clegg wanted all of a straight in or out so no this is why our campaign is so simple or it's a straight show we stay well shall we go down the party over punk rock song group
6:35 am
used to sing that's where we keep an eye on that so the man in the street can understand it we don't want to get carried away with this treaty that constitutional that discussion let's center on the basic facts should we be in this club or not you know with the e.u. so the euro crashing and burning at the moment there's never been a chime postman's for us to have this discussion arlen's in a lot of trouble at the moment in the e.u. and the i.m.f. have stepped in to bail them out surely arland would be in a lot more trouble if they didn't have that kind of backup so isn't the e.u. a force for good well let's not forget of course to referendum they were forced to vote again because they got the decision was the political elite know personally i don't think we should be bailing out ireland i mean that's my own personal view i thought it is ironic i was watching the budget this week an island their stamp duty up to a million euros in one percent losses at four percent and seven hundred fifty thousand by their choice. benefit is crazy the amount they pay out in child benefit their
6:36 am
corporation tax to keep it at twelve and a half percent no wonder countries a reader companies are relocated from germany from portugal from spain and from the united kingdom to ireland well how can you have monetary union if you haven't got every other form of union and political union in place the answer is you can't how can you tie the economy of greece to the economy of germany it's just ludicrous the holding is a nonsense and the worst thing is we need the british people have never been given a chance to vote on it so i think ireland actually makes focus our minds even more on whether we want to be in this club and it's ironic that we're not even in the euro zone and we have george osborne of course playing on the seven billion pounds now of course that's to protect banks like the robot to scotland but we've already bailed out the royal bank of scotland wants the british taxpayer and i'm no great union supporter normally but i actually agree with people on bob crow at the moment use in charge of the. union the trade guard trade drugs and train workers union
6:37 am
when he says it's not his members who got us into this mess is the bankers and the politicians are the larger issue but it's his members who are paying for it just like the students who are protesting it's them who ended up having to pay for it who would marry taxpayers and we've already bailed out r.b.s. once and lloyds bank now we're bailing them out again effectively bought a back door of our island and the british people haven't been asked about this you know david cameron came to power in me in a budget should be going to ringfence the n.h.s. and we're going to ring fence four and i didn't just ring fence for eight he's increased farai we've now bought out island he also star contribution to europe and we increased of course when brags that he was going to keep the budget down actually increased the budget that was no machines thatcher handbag swinging victory for the united states look it was a dismal failure and people should say and he's spinning it him and clegg of the moment got more spin than a washing machine a cell. line and the british people are waking up to this in the british people are
6:38 am
saying no we can't afford we can't pay we won't pay that's what the student protests are about and we're going to see more protests too in this winter of discontent because ordinary folk who say why should we lose forty thousand police officers why should public sector workers be losing their jobs why should meal on wheels on wheels be cut why should help for the elderly why should the arts budget because why should we not have enough money in our coffers but we certainly can find seven billion pounds there'd be no need for these cuts what's the economists argue if we weren't in the year so there'll be no need for the students to be protesting and that's what needs to be discussed and we are seeing lots of protests they started off in continental europe and they've now undoubtedly spreads the k. do you see this as the sort of beginning of the end of the e.u. i certainly think the euro is crashing and burning our belief portugal will go spain were dollars in spending just true three weeks ago to do
6:39 am
a lot of radio shows over in spain there's swathes of swathes of council not so not council housing estates with brand new houses and apartments completely empty just like in ireland they're never going to be occupied property boom fueled by a reckless lending again i believe that they'll crash i think we need you when the euro begins to crash then you have to ask yourself can the your oh so when the euro collapses can the you survive as well and as you say you brought across europe i mean you know germany there are people protesting they don't want to bail out these countries that they've that had a sensible banking system and the great irony was in brussels one two months ago in brussels they were discussing the budget they were discussing the hospitality budget they put it up to two point one million pounds meanwhile one hundred thousand europeans are on the streets all different languages order from nationalities protesting about the austerity cuts one hundred thousand people inside they were basically voted to increase their budget for oysters and champagne that's what's wrong there's a disconnect between. political elite not just in the united kingdom but right
6:40 am
across europe and the ordinary man and woman in the street and i think ordinary men and women have had enough they're the ones losing their houses they're the ones losing their jobs through no fault of their own and something's got to give and i think what's going to give is definitely the euro and probably the and in a what lot of ways bring it on say i but first and foremost let's have a democratic vote every much better for us to have a vote and decide we want to leave this before it collapses with people on the streets demonstrating what really amounts to civil unrest is this really the time to be talking about something like an e.u. referendum which seems like a separate issue in the face of all this trouble that we're seeing you can't really discuss our economy you can't discuss our laws you can't discuss our human rights you can't discuss any kind of cases that happening in the u.k. without think either of the e.u. or the your pm court of human rights in affects every aspect of our lives because we are part of it we were never given the chance to vote on it that's why it's
6:41 am
becoming a hot potato and this lie that they're spinning in a nick clegg and david cameron we're all in this together well actually we're not because nineteen out of twenty four of the cabinet a multi millionaire and briefly about the students do you support what the students are doing in terms of going out onto the streets burning stuff throwing things but our support students completely in their right to protest today in the daily telegraph front page the metropolitan police chief are saying don't let you choose children go on these protests what a load of nonsense i don't live in a country where our chief of police stuff is free from protest because of course you can't condone it sent throwing extinguishes up through she could have killed somebody however on the same token they got carried away i do think it's right there protesting i do think it's right the unions are joining them i do fully support their protest i don't support condone the violence and i fully support the students and i hope the protests escalate and i think they will on the recent protests this week for example of burma and of the. such instance stuff it's great
6:42 am
to see students' protests to get the silly healthy about young people being angry now that the coalition governments approved these cuts in student funding what. the trade unions and others who might join with them going to do now i think was really going to happen is come january thirty first into february because what's going to happen is christmas so traditionally british people are going to celebrate christmas they're still going to bother children christmas for. ball on the door mat for the credit. people will be beginning to lose their jobs people being living proof of this on their credit cards to pay their mortgages they're going to start defaulting that's when the real protests are going to stop and. think it's not about it isn't. the debate about europe is definitely on about the game that will continue don't go and thank you.
