a slowdown in economic growth and security. because in my mind europeans are a little bit unsecured what we see at the time in vista is there are problems in different areas and this makes people a little piece which i still think that russia is a great but. i still absolutely sure that russia will overrun the in the next four five years germany is the biggest. copper and use one for russians owns a car that's three times less than in the u.s. and in many european countries so russia has to have tracked if market for global auto makers compared to europe where a new car registrations dropped to the lowest level in almost two decades russia's console's for costs for this year differ with some experts expecting

a new banking crisis may be festering in the eurozone despite the slovenian prime minister denying that the country would seek a bailout mccullagh to buy more say discuss this very issue with pilbeam from r.t. business and artie's news editor of across. they've been told to come up with one point three billion dollars in order to sort out their banking crisis that i did with my man that actually creates a three percent of their g.d.p. their economy already a contract to buy two percent last year so it just gives you an idea of what the economy the situation is at the moment is the banking sector the problem is that being told you need to recapitalize your banks that's exactly what cyprus was told the thing is they don't have the money to do that they can't afford to do that let me just jump on what yes it is i will what do you make of this woman sees about a billion is measured looks familiar to. me thinks the lady doth protest too much i think might apply here i think you know what i'm seeing is the same old same old
from the troika from brussels the same old kind of mismanagement i tell you if i had a hundred thousand sitting in this living in baghdad right now i'd be pretty happy man but i'd be heading down to the cash machine with a big bag making was this report see well we only see these basically said to be slovenian banking system has misread the cost of recapitalizing so there was no where they came to gave us is one point three billion dollars i think it is you know the o.e.c.d. has come out has basically said. this could be a whole hell of a lot more and it's this fits the bill it fits the bill of the of all of the bailouts of scene with argentina with cyprus either with with spain seen with portugal that the powers that be don't want to. get in their face now so everything's fine everything's fine everything's fine until of course it's too late and then we enter a situation like cyprus where suddenly there's a lockdown on privately held accounts there is an on president a very going on while at the same time brussels mandarins are saying no no this was
a one off who's to blame is it the banking sector is it is that this day i mean what a lot of people are saying is about the country never privatized the advice of the three top banks the biggest one third queta all of this money these toxic loans and then also to all of this is to actually just put it in. which they're calling state run debt consolidation agency so you take it all out of the big banks so that they can then start lending to businesses and be completely clean and transparent and just put in the bank these are the same guys the o.e.c.d. these are the same guys that are in april two thousand and eight so that the irish banking system quote unquote was well capitalized and profitable so we can never be too sure about how we are actually how efficient these guys card so i can tell you that the bombs are basically saying no thank you very much and they're actually performing the same as a licensed by a slow the peripheral countries in there about five percent which is dangerous and the i.m.f. has said that if the lawmakers continue to push measures on the economic deal for
these countries on the economic depression they're not going nowhere just putting so much pressure on the economy instead of the actual problem they drastically overestimated the impact of a star exactly exactly. as an economic measure as an economic drastically underestimated the impact of a sturdy. dangerously explosive social device a lot else spoke french right wing politician marine le pen the leader of the third largest political party in france about why more and more people think they'd be better off without brussels. today we're joined by murray independent she is the leader of the french political party the national front and she came in third in the two thousand and twelve presidential elections in france getting about eighteen percent of the vote which is slightly higher than what was expected thank you very much mr bennett for joining us today and my first question is we're looking at seeing in europe
a rise in that nationalism in the rise in a pro independence movements those sentiments of wanting more sovereignty for their countries but do you think that this is a temporary trend because analysts are saying this is just a reaction to put political parties that are currently in power and a reaction to a bad economy across europe. now i don't think so a tourist i think that first and foremost if there is a rejection of the u.s. union and its policies you have been people are realizing that the european union is an empire. that is in fact destroying their freedom and it doesn't protect them from economic social or migratory difficulties and i think that the increase in patch it is to managing a country's own affairs to control of the border is whether it's a human capital a product is irreversible i think what we're seeing is the brussels very falling down it's crumbling that is to say that the european union and its model has reached an end it's
a destruction that it's not right now but will probably accelerate will we need to look at what's been happening in bulgaria where there has been a revolution and where the government crowd as well as the parliament within ten days also need to see the results in italy where within two years the us skeptics have become a majority and i believe that many other people are in the present rejecting the policies behind these policies is ideology do to free trade immigration globalization that is making us open our doors and windows to all the products in the world to social dumping to a knock at the immigration a let's talk about the french president francois a lot it's almost a year since he was elected on a scale of one to ten. how would you rate him now because it was reported at a concert no ten because in order for me to never teams you have to be a political leader has not a political leader is just a technical leader like mr monti of italy but it means that in fact he is not managing the country and is not making decisions it is just following the
instructions from the european union has just putting in place austerity which is complete stupidity because a diety destroys the economy and increases unemployment so your opinion on france leaving the european union of the euro zone and the shang going to agreement you're you haven't changed your mind on those matters oh oh sure jack person the cool factor is that you know each day that goes by i believe more in this idea i even asked the french president to organize a big rubber and them in january twenty four teams to ask this question to the french people do they want to stay in the europeans or any of it do they want to stay with open border do they want to take the risk of having romania and bulgaria in the same hand with the arrival of millions of roma who are attracted by social system that's a very advantageous which is the french system yesterday do they want to go on with trade do they want to do for bad economics such as usual so when you talk of your concerns on immigration you're talking about economic reasons here economic
concerns now obviously not it's not only an economic problem as this is a problem of national unity again as well that people in huge number of people i'm talking here of legal immigrants but there are also the illegal immigrants that's so when you have three hundred thousand or four hundred thousand people with a different culture a different religion and different customs this shakes the french people who feel compelled to adapt themselves their lifestyles to a culture that is different from that let's talk about france's intervention you called a france going into libya a full week and you said that in syria the west is quote unquote blindly supporting the opposition and is doing the exact. we didn't libya this time in secret but when france intervened in mali you were not against it why do you deem this intervention the gentleman because she couldn't hold out a moment she was this is my stance is coherent if you will and either you fight against islamic fundamentalism in which case it makes sense to fight in mali but
it's not normal to support the same terrorists in libya and in syria right now in a situation where our leaders are completely in my opinion insane the fight on the side of terrorists in libya and syria and against the same terrorists and mali this is not good here and me i am pro here and that is to say i think we should not have supported and given weapons in the system the hardest in libya who right away impose sharia law after they came to power or that she should not do that and in syria we should start this question about relationship with qatar who provides funding to terrorism and fundamentalism throughout the world and indeed it is legitimate to fight this extrude mazen and molly my. mornings when we come back shortly after the break.
