triggering concerns the government is stoking social conflict at home to tighten its grip on the minority. and up next an interview with a top legal man and the european council. despite the economic gloom think europe he says the difficulties are a natural and transitional step forward. today we're joined by a p.c. was the legal counsel of the european council and he also spent more than two decades as head of the legal service of the e.u. council of ministers and yes participated in a lot of the important decisions taken over the past twenty years notably the adoption of the new treaties in the european union thanks very much mr pearce for joining us today i'd like to start by quoting something you had written and event for two thousand and eleven and the financial times you had written it's time to
2:32 am
admit that the large amount of the e.q. was too rapid europe's citizens no longer understand the purpose of the e.u. and for all its increased powers the european parliament the supposed repository of democratic legitimacy in europe is a relative failure i like to ask is is there something fundamentally wrong with europe at this point you know this whole european union adventure is something which is new has never been made in history so we are experiencing and the problems were how were the currency i'm sure we are going to talk about is in the example of the bottom of. we fault in the beginning we had delegations of national bottom lines forming to grow serves to bring democracy to you recall making or members of european parliament be elected by people will bring more democracy most work but one person for example but to be elections has been
2:33 am
decreasing rules. so that's one of the ballrooms we are experiencing with this new adventure as i said well then again there's the question of sovereignty where individual member states feel like they're just giving up more powers to brussels these states members of the you'll be an union. of them over nation states. history. suzy should be behind them so it's difficult for these states maine very good greece spain or portugal or song of france. to. share. the same to share their power. but in this is city i think in the more than the word first of all and we have been in the european union all that peace between us
2:34 am
because we have been fighting also or the time during these two and then we have decided to try to have more poor spurge and to build an internal market among all of us which is five hundred million consumers and then. but that's the argument always presented by the e.u. this notion of there being no war being more peaceful but if you look at the situation the economic and social situation of individual member states this isn't exactly a conducive or a recipe for peace as it were in the crimea to those who disagree with you the new has cannot make any decision that some member states so if you have the ear you said the story of the story of the number states no member states would remain in the u. if you in its interests. in it and they out
2:35 am
there this states because they think that european union his helping if they want to simply seeing european union is a creation of the states what are you worried about the a growing social unrest in individual countries as well as the rise of the extreme political left and right of course. that is why since. one year when you're half i am trying to give my two to two to give a little bit grain of sand to the discussions and to try to accelerate the way we are taking decisions in order to finish with your crisis. because we cannot go on in some companies with austerity and not giving hope to the people it is not possible it's just not possible that people are desperate their revenues are falling unemployment is increasing and so on and so forth and we have the heavy
2:36 am
price paid to co-produce parties because of that and you have these reactions of people in the streets which are completely understandable they they they have no hope of course so i think we have to give hope to these people and to take decisions visible credible understandable as soon as possible and now it's obvious that we cannot go on with a simple fact that we need strong wars legally binding hooves fall the member states to behave and to have a lot of convergence of the budgetary and are going to make policies in order to establish who we are and you economy and monitor unions but you've already had these rules before and that will do you just added new rules and those old rules don't really help that you know we do know how this was we did not say that. we
2:37 am
national or budget you are going to make we are going to say yes or no before you are going to be able to accept it. we have said before taking any economic policies of importance you most discussed and have the green light of your companions in becoming parents that's all the work we have to do now and the work which has begun two years ago and which is world events now not enough we should go much further but it's precisely bs words isn't it of control of getting more powers from individual member states that is creating this recess dance from those countries. it is a corner for by your companions you are in the same boat you are i'll be nice to a team of albinus to climb a mountain linked together by. you in the same boat rowing if one is failing
2:38 am
the others will fail probably it's a team so you are sharing the powers we're deciding to give and no one should be the weakest link which might bring a catastrophe how long will people have to bear the brunt of the consequences of a free and you're a crisis that we're in i think i do think that now the time has come to take the final decision is the final decisions and that's a question for me over weeks of hmongs lot of years i'd like to bring up a question that's been thrown around by some analysts and observers do you really need the euro to pursue this european project. this is not the question we have the euro this question was twenty years ago which has been solved by governments. they have sure isn't their currency so now we have the currency
2:39 am
and what would happen if you were exploded that would be a catastrophe total catastrophe not only for greece portugal and so on but the country which has been benefiting from the you will most is probably germany and that would be a catastrophe for germany if you look at the trade again. of course they do a lot of trade with china but if you look in. picture china is a tiny part of the external trade most of the trade is done reviewable what do they do with. you know if you were exploded what would be the consequence of some currencies new currencies. devaluate and there will be a warm day valuations and there will be a great binge of four into the market and there will be a great binge of the european union as such european integration do you think that
2:40 am
members of the government. or longer of a month and so on would take the responsibility to both the worlds this would i don't think so now one of the pillars of the e.u. was this free movement of people no internal borders but there has been a lot of talk about strengthening border controls and also a rise in the anti immigration rhetoric where does that leave europe first we we have this freedom of movement but actually the number of work going from one country to end is unfortunately the quite weak weak you have example because of the language main leak and also the attachment to people to their regions so we have to take or decisions we can to improve the mode b.d.t. of labor within be union and what i'm proposing some measures in my book on this
2:41 am
and then the thing is immigration from the third countries you know with all the demographic trend in the countries of the european union they have just got past perfect just such as in the us in other countries as well. that means that we have more old people or and less younger people to support them so we will need to be grecian from other counties as well and we have to prepare people and we have i think to have a common policy in the european countries to do to prepare the cad like to bring up defense and military spending and particular with regard to syria now has also said that a military intervention is not out. the table in the context of via un security council however when france does that when it's ready to spend on a military intervention given this mall finances of the e.u.
2:42 am
many members of the european union and how broad with the impact be on the whole economy where i don't think you know maybe i was one thing syria is another thing is much more the being. bigger can three or four and i don't see an intervention of the e.u. as such in syria would we. the means to do that i doubt. because it will be a pretty big crisis you know i was spending in the media expenses have decreased a lot in order european countries and libya has shown that. we have to figure. big operations outside of our territory. thanks very much for this interview.
