6:31 am
patrick mercer is a member of parliament of the conservative party and a former shadow minister for homeland security's been a frequent commentator on defense and security issues patrick thanks for speaking to r.t. now even very outspoken on the human rights act on how essentially is allowing foreign criminals to stay in the u.k. on the grounds of human rights what does that say about britain i think it says the britain has surrendered far too many powers to the european union. is interpret ing the the rules and regulations in the strict strictures of europe in a much more proper but in this way in this case on helpful way the most of the members of the the loopholes the foreign criminals can exploit to stay in the case is that making britain a target do you think i think if you look at foreign nation. attitudes towards the united kingdom particular issues like terrorism for instance. london
6:32 am
widely called in french circles londonistan for the ease with which jihadists etc can live prosper or indeed in place in particular in london and also in britain i think it's worth also remembering that forty percent of america's external intelligence. are directed at the united kingdom and i'm not because clearly because of the actions of a majesty's government but because of actions of his loyalists fundamentalist cetera inside this kingdom directed at the us now if we have that if that is the case of this is just the way that we are regarded it was seen as being a soft touch for insurgents for four malcontents or ones or rather yeah i mean i just that is terribly unhelpful to this country surely that's a concern with the olympics coming up you could argue it two ways of course you can say well the resentment of these people here that they don't want to spoil a good thing. or feel that for. britain of course is going to be targeted and she's
6:33 am
labeled as the little satan on the islamist web sites and all those sorts of charming places i read so much of so much of. britain's a target she's been attacked before her soldiers sailors and are under everyday attack in places like afghanistan pakistan. of course we remain a. very high on the terrorist list of priorities so how does the government get out of the situation now and obviously human rights have to be respected but of course where do they draw the line i think is very important that human rights of course have to be respected and that's one of the reasons why our servicemen and women are dying abroad at the moment to make sure that that nations don't respect human rights or have a good partner rephrase that not nations but that causes that don't respect human rights or that we fight against that sort of narrow mindedness human rights are crucially important but there's a difference between the human rights of those who would endeavor to kill british
6:34 am
citizens and the human rights of british citizens what greater human rights is in the right to life he or she who would try to take your life away from you must be dealt with realistically or must be dealt with sensibly we must bear a gate from the front from from the strictures of the human rights act and we must replace it with a bill of rights as the current prime minister promised before the last election is the case of the government being hamstrung by europe or is this too weak to stand up to the e.u. . i think things have not been made any simpler by the fact that we don't have a conservative government per se that we have a coalition albeit a conservative led coalition but a coalition the liberal democrats of course have set their face against any tinkering with the human rights act and therefore individuals like myself who. campaigned on the fact that we would have a british rule a bill of rights i fear are going to be frustrated for some considerable time how damaging are these directives from europe and in. just had another with the e.u.
6:35 am
threatening to sue the u.k. if it doesn't relaxes welfare system for migrants well i mean you're a skeptic so i'm afraid you're you're not going to get any any warm words of praise for me about the european union is damaging so you know the kingdom we are a sovereign nation and sometimes one wonders home sovereignty will still show was european history as a place to pull we do need to have a referendum on our continued presence inside view of the european union either on our entire persons or the terms of which we find ourselves now again this was part of the conservative mo fester before the last election given what's happening in the new euro zone crisis the financial crisis do you think this is the death knell has his has sounded forceful even the concept of europe well i think the concept of europe for concept of europe is constantly evolving and constantly changing i think that's a healthy thing what i hope is that britain in the same way that we very sensibly
6:36 am
stayed out of membership of the euro itself i hope that we could send you to be skeptical about off further of all the following the recent riots across the cave the police were criticized for not acting more forcefully is this a case because the respect for human rights has gone too far do you think. human rights is a question of a balance between the majority and the vocal minority. the rights of the individual are preeminently important we live in a democracy believe in a civilized democracy where individuals are allowed to live their lives or should be allowed to live their lives and safety freedom to speak speak what they wish will say what they wish and to an extent do what they wish the trouble is that because of influences such as the human rights act because of the influences of of what i would regard as the. as the less sensible members of the of the saloon the liberal press and the liberal establishment that those who would seek to
6:37 am
disrupt society either by deeds words or actions inconvenience and danger the majority and endanger the majority of society unnecessarily so how many people did we see protesting say in the student riots before christmas well i don't know how many were but clearly a tiny tiny minority inside the country were they were they protesting legitimately for the most part absolutely of course they were should they be allowed to continue protesting of course but not violently now the police must protect the majority from the volunteer or the disruptive minority that is as much a part of my human rights are huge human rights as to say that once a man or woman is arrested they should be treated decently by the police of course they should but it's a question of balance it's a question of proportionality now the police god bless them please please understand i only big supporter of the police force have been so lambasted by the
6:38 am
loony livid conduct of the last government that when we have things like the g twenty protests the death of ian tomlinson etc well i'm not saying that things won't go wrong by the police of course they were but this nonetheless has colored. so much of the police approach towards these sort of problems that we have a. institutional nervous breakdown from the police in these in these cases and helped by the fact they don't get robust and stringent support from politicians including those of my own party who should then done the right see how should they dealt with them they should have dealt with the rights with due proportionality i'm not saying i wasn't there and i'm not a police officer and i'm not going to start making specific indictments about policeman but those in my experience of dealing with riots which i regret to say is considerable most view is that once someone starts being violent there are very
6:39 am
very very few options left you as a member of the security forces other than meeting violence with proportionate and measured violence we didn't see enough of that. and water cannons potentially possibly i don't i wouldn't i gather wouldn't talk about the sort of weaponry and i wouldn't i wouldn't specify the sort of weapon all i would say is that imports of this country things like water cannon things like plastic bullets are used almost were i would say without without thought of course or use with thought but in northern ireland violent extremism violent disorder is dealt with extremely robustly by the police service and all the and i don't see why we treat our rich thugs in a different way from the way that we treat english thugs let's talk about afghanistan now it could be argued ten years on the gulf between the western arab world's a bigger than it was before now you're a former member of the armed forces what would you say was it was the campaign wrong to begin with what do veer off course afghanistan is
6:40 am
a difficult place i think that if there was going to be allied of allied intervention in afghanistan we should have looked at particular from the british experience in the past if you go into afghanistan you go with limited aims and you go with a limited time period in moving to get to enter afghanistan in two thousand. two with no clear mission statement with no clear limitations upon when their lives were going to withdraw or indeed what their aim was is very very difficult particularly for a former military man to understand can anything good command for anything of a achieved anything positive that i think i think there was plenty of positive things that are being that are being achieved that first and foremost is we've got to stop talking about afghanistan as if it is as if it is the kernel of the problem it's not it's a regional war and it stretches from the borders of iran to the borders of russia and encompasses the nuclear armed country of pakistan the presence of our troops in afghanistan or should i say more properly on the afghanistan pakistan border is as
6:41 am
much about maintaining the relative stability of pakistan and the relative stability of pakistan's nuclear arsenal as it is about reestablishing afghanistan as a relatively civilized country what's the best possible outcome here they've promised to withdraw troops by twenty fifteen is that likely will it be met and where will that leave the country it was an extraordinary statement by the president the united states saying to his enemies that whether he had won or not he would be withdrawing his troops can you imagine the ultra conference they are lies deciding that there are no unspent to hit that would be that buy in month x. or of year x. that they were to what the outcome they'd be withdrawing their troops i don't think so it was. his job but the levers occurred to me the best way i don't personally see every american every professional realized sold leaving afghanistan between two thousand and fourteen two thousand and fifteen numbers will leave school infrastructure to be able to be rolled down but there's going to be no
6:42 am
i presence in afghanistan for the foreseeable future one was announced and so damaging. well you can look no tenet of military strategy or operations at the operational and strategic level allows you to say to your enemy this is when we get a surrender that's not war patrick thank you thank you very much to.
