welcome back this is our t.v. live from moscow here's a recap of all our main stories churning in the killing of one man while ignoring the doubts of thousands of civilians in libya at least for now the problems of the u.s. media's approach to gadhafi is demise all about says libya's new rulers also stay quiet on how they're going to rebuild infrastructure destroyed by civil war and nato is bombs. plans and saving the euro are at risk as a crucial meeting of european finance ministers is cancelled ahead of wednesday's e.u. summit it's cast doubt over the prospects of a solution being found in the deepening death crisis. police have clashed with hundreds of anti-corporate demonstrators in the us city of oakland crowds through to the streets to protest earlier arrests and the forced removal of tents and riot squads to use tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the gathering. and
6:31 am
a new study says the u.s. new secret uranium based weapons in iraq calls it could juggle illnesses and increases in cancer innocent civilians report found a new generation of arms were deployed by american forces in the tory astraddle of flu shot seven years ago. and europe's or national turmoil has intensified calls within the u.k. to leave the struggling bloc well next argue discusses the prospects of bad happening and the future of the euro zone where the british conservative party. i'm in manchester with douglas cards well he's a conservative member of parliament he said the political system in this country is broken and in urgent need of reforms he's also renowned euro skeptic douglas cause well thanks for talking to us we use this catch all term you're a skeptic what does that mean old style euroscepticism in this country used to be
6:32 am
about trying to take this country back it used to be an inherently conservative movement that was about trying to take us back to a sort of one nine hundred fifty s. status quo i don't have much truck with that at all i mean you're a skeptic because i want change and i want to really change the way this country is run i think fundamentally europe is in the mess that she is today because she's trying to do too much by conscious deliberate design of currency is a mess because it's a product of conscious design agricultural policy have fisheries policy trade policy you know we need to let go and we need to allow the different parts of the european continent to do what suits them best incidentally i would say that that's why the european continent grew to global prominence in the first place it's precisely because we never had the political centralization that russia had that china had for the mobile empire that the ottomans at that europe was allowed to prosper in the first place so we need
6:33 am
a decentralized europe and i'm afraid i think that means rejecting the whole e.u. project completely so you think the president should leave the correct we should have an in out referendum and i would vote for us to come out of the european union the european union and one nine hundred fifty s. political structure it's an outdated architecture for a modern continent you know when we joined the european union or what became the european union in the early one nine hundred seventy s. western europe at that time accounted for thirty six percent of global g.d.p. today the european continent accounts for far less than that by twenty twenty it will account for a mere fifteen percent of global g.d.p. we joined what we thought. it was a prosperous trade block it turns out we shackled ourselves to a corpse i think we're better off and you talk about an in out referendum but isn't there a middle way where we have a trade relationship with europe that without any of the politics in effect if we had only a referendum and most people voted for us to leave the european project as
6:34 am
a kids we. would still be there we would still have people with whom we want to be good neighbors personally i would like us to continue to have the free trade and the free movement of people between our countries we would still have to cooperate but i think that can best be done through bilateral structures or by ad hoc arrangements. i would personally like us to stop being rather grudging tenants in the european. apartment and become good neighbors to the european countries that are next to us we need good relations with continental europe but we're not getting them by being in this one nine hundred fifty s. apartment block despite the fact that they didn't actually join the euro british taxpayers are still covering the currency to the tune of billions of pounds wrong it's absolutely wrong you know we have found ourselves in the ludicrous position of
6:35 am
having to bail out a currency that we chose not to join and i think it's wrong for our increased british liabilities to over twenty billion to prop up a currency that i think needs to be allowed to break up. within europe within recent years we have allowed the current system created when slovakia broke away from the czech republic they did so very simply by creating a new currency when argentina. the us dollar turned out to be a disastrous mistake brought about by politicians and when it's ours when eventually they had to break that link they were able to devalue their currency default on their debts and start again and as a result of that both slovakia and argentina are doing pretty well that i think is the answer for for greece portugal for ireland probably for spain and italy another way perhaps of looking at it is that maybe the german center of the euro zone should be allowed to establish its own currency whichever way you look at it it
6:36 am
involves breaking up the euro and greece is recently said admittedly that it's not going to be able to meet its debt obligations for the next year and possibly. how much the british banks. well british banks are liable for quite a lot of money billions of pounds at least that used to be regarded as quite a lot of money until our government started printing it but he's the case the british banks are going to take a hit and they're going to take a hit not because of some abstract problem in the euro zone they're going to take a hit because their investment team from their fixed income debt bought greek and portuguese and other government debt but they regard it as fixed income but turned out to be a really bad investment now when my constituents buy shares in a company badly run and lose money the government doesn't step in and underwrite their loss so i'm very very concerned that taxpayers in my constituency will be asked to bail out banks that brought this upon themselves now if if that is the
6:37 am
case that we are going to have to prop up some of these banks because these banks have been so badly run such victims of their own greed that unless we do so our economy will disintegrate then then at least let's prop up. the banks here in britain it's not channel all that money all the way of athens values been of other folk party countries if the problem really is that we don't want to allow banks in this country to face the consequences of their own fiscal folly then let's address that here in this country rather than channeling money from third party countries oppose all very well to say british money to bail out british banks but that means we're we're operating within a block. not an isolated place yes of course there is a large degree of interdependence in the global economy and a good thing too but the idea that. simply because banks if there is a default in the euro zone british banks will take it therefore we've got to keep on signing a blank check that's absurd i think think for the logic of that. ever since the
6:38 am
bailout started eighteen months ago every single bailout has increased the amount of debt greece portugal and ireland well perhaps aren't an exception but greece and portugal certainly have more debt today than they had when available than at what point do we realize that these bailouts are not helping these the first bailouts in history that are scooping in labeling water into the boat eventually they're going to think it is sort of building an almost an isolationist line here how did that halley with for example britain going into libya i mean isn't it isolationism on the one hand and expansionism on the other on the contrary if you think that what i said was isolationist i probably didn't make myself very clear i want britain to be a truly global player but not locked in a small room in the north west coast of europe doing everything with two or three other countries i want us to be truly global players it's right that we're global players by virtue of locking ourselves in the diplomatic room with europe i think
6:39 am
we have less influence than we would have let britain after all has countries around the world that will once in effect a future britain australia new zealand even india the rising power of india has a common. in a parliamentary system like our own we have so much in common with the world why are we shutting ourselves away from it it is the european project that is making us insular and isolationist and let go one stock about politics more generally is broken. but our political system i think is broken our political system i think in effect what we have is there an eighteenth or nineteenth century system of parliamentary democracy trying to hold to account a twenty first century size government it doesn't work it doesn't work. well in the interest of the taxpayer or in the interest of getting the best public policy again and again and again people vote for something it's not delivered and the people
6:40 am
that they vote for end up simply providing excuses as to why it doesn't happen i think we need more direct democracy we need instead of delegating decision making to politicians who then delegate power to the whitehall elites in the mandarins we need direct democracy so that people can choose things for themselves in this country my grandfather's generation used to have food rationing what they had in their larder at home in their kitchen was given to them by government in those days are gone and a good thing too people can now choose for themselves what they eat they can choose for themselves where they go on holiday they can choose themselves the clothes they wear why can't we have a little bit more choice about public policy in which we dress ourselves as well as from the outside situation in the u.k. let's present corruption in the media media's close links to u.k. politics particularly the conservative party boys network the political system is very slow to reform itself what kind of message do you think that sends to people
6:41 am
who are losing their jobs and suffering from state cutbacks you're absolutely right britain has had a series of crises of the elites and we've seen from the m.p.'s expenses scandal from the hacking gate inquiry and the close collusion allegedly between senior police officers and the media the banking crisis we've seen a series of crises where the political elite has got it wrong what all these crises have in common number one they are all unaccountable concentrations of power now what's extraordinary is that the age of digital democracy the age of the internet allowed us to see what m.p.'s are doing with public money it allows the whole hacking thing to come out it allows people to hold to account the rich and the powerful not just in this country but throughout the world so i think in a sense although these crises. that they show which way the wind is blowing we're going to have more openness in government unaccountable concentrations of power whether they exist in banking the media or politics are going to be broken open
6:42 am
everything that the internet touches it opens up it opens up to greater accountability that's going to happen in politics and a very good thing to politicians minor like it's political parties might lose market share to new entrants in politics there may be more competition in sight who gets to be our politicians but this is a good thing direct democracy is good and what's preventing you from pursuing through the political reforms that you so clearly what i would like us to have gone much further in opening up the political system in britain to choice and accountability you might say we need our own version of glasnost we need to make sure that the people in westminster are vulnerable to the wishes and the will of the people in a way that they're not we need openness we've gone some way to delivering that but we've not gone far enough and i think the reason why we've not gone far enough is likely because it suits the political class to carry on with some of the n satisfactory things we we have at the moment we promised that we would allow the
6:43 am
voters the power to recall. their own politicians they have it in california they have it in many american countries in fact most of your viewers i'm sure can be recalled from their line of work pretty much any day of the week yet politicians you can't sack them for five years and in safe constituencies even longer i would like to allow the people to directly hire and fire the political plus some changes have been made to make things better but not nearly enough and no prizes for guessing why that is because well thank you very much thank you. on. a very warm welcome to you this is your news today protesters on the bolts since they
