already on the rise the u.k.'s go it alone sentiment is now being fueled by a fresh blond drawing the on a nation ever from the mainland to european state that's not a prime minister david cameron hinted he wants to withdrawal from the european convention on human rights it's long been the subject of it we take brits with such measures as insisting u.k. prison is should have the right vote and allowing foreign criminals store main in the country indefinitely takes up the story. the british home secretary theresa may she told the conservative party conference that the current immigration system in the u.k. is like a never ending game of snakes and ladders and that questioning the european convention for human rights might be a route that the government chooses to go down now we know that they're serious because that david cameron has already indorsed that option at the opening of the tory party conference now the reason they are so worried about this is that at the
7:07 am
moment suspected foreign criminals well they have seventeen different routes to appeal if they are meant to be deported under the proposed plans the home office would fast deport suspected foreign criminals and then hear their appeals ofter they've been deported and i think we can take a listen to the home secretary theresa may talking about that the witnesses foreign criminals gratian lawyers while the loses all the victims of these crimes to the public where there is a risk with no risk where there is no risk of serious and irreversible harm we should deport foreign criminals first and hear their appeals later conservatives view is that the european convention for human rights simply prevents them from dealing with famous cases like that of radical hate preacher abu qatada who famously avoided extradition from the u.k. for over a decade because his lawyers argued that it was against his human rights to return

to his native jordan where he could face torture there now that was an extremely embarrassing case for the u.k. government and gives you an indication of why they want to tackle the issue that's on the list already concerned that the tories plans to quit the fifty four year old treaty the european convention for human rights the forty seven countries are all signed up to well that's the inevitable outcome of that they say is that the number of human rights safeguards in the u.k. will that they would go down and that this is a country already that hasn't been immune to accusations of human. rights abuses itself only recently the u.k. government was criticized for detaining glenn greenwald's partner david miranda at heathrow airport glenn greenwald is of course the guardian journalist who uncovered much of the n.s.a. scandal and his partner was held by police that he through our ports and most of his documents all of his documents was seized and human rights watch called it
7:09 am
a shocking act that was aimed at punishing or intimidating journalists and in terms of the reactions to the conservatives latest proposals well they're already there is highlighting that these plants courage may well be illegal under current laws and that ultimately they could be the first steps towards the u.k. government simply ignoring the human rights of people as and when it suits them with an election rather than two years of where it seems cameron has learnt useful lessons from the success of the united kingdom independence policy that's because the idea of abandoning the human rights convention is not a new one and was first floated by u.k. and gerard batten and the people the party believes it's time britain took matters into its own hand. we now come under the jurisdiction of the european court of human rights which is going respect sponsible for many decisions that the british people are very unhappy with like our inability to get poor foreign terrorist
7:10 am
suspects for example and i accept that we have to give prisoners the vote i've said that we cannot have life sentences for criminals they must be reviewed so our worst and most deprived killers will not have the rights to have their life sentences reviewed we have their own courts which have been established over the last eight hundred years we have our supreme court if a british citizen has a problem with the british government and the british state we have our own courts where they can seek redress and we shouldn't have to take it off to a foreign court presided over by a foreign judges many of her marks and simply not up to the standard of english judges countries will either observe civilised values or they were many countries in the year and not quite up to that standard yet and all this is done for us as actually we've had all these kind of idiotic decisions that then we're obliged to actually it's a. and coming up later this evening the drunk design stood behind as neisha troops were padds have bid farewell to his son with

a shame not to leave the crippling sanctions against the country at least prematurely his visit as bad by they saw in relations between washington and tehran as the natives of both nations made their first steps to long awaited talks on a possible nuclear settlement in a partner has the details. last speaker wrapping up the united nations general assembly debate but israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will likely not offer the same harmonious tone heard last week from iran as president who is expected to argue that israel and the world at large should continue to be on guard against tehran's nuclear program even insisting that the international sanctions which have been crippling iran's economy not be eased now just seven days ago iranian leader hassan rouhani delivered his debut address at the u.n. g.a. proclaiming that his government was ready to resolve any and all concerns about his

country's nuclear program even promising more transparency and engagement with the united states during a meeting with u.s. president barack obama at the white house on monday israel's prime minister insisted that tehran offer immediate concessions by suspending sensitive nuclear projects or else even greater international now obama short of netanyahu that all options including military options are on the table when it comes to protecting u.s. interests in the middle east or hope is that we can resolve this diplomatically bush as president i have said before i would prefer that we take no options off the table including military options now last year when the israeli prime minister addressed the u.n. g.a. he presented a cartoon diagram of a bomb claiming that iran would enter the final phase of a weapons production by made it through two thousand and thirteen israel has of course adopted off from that assessment since making it but wall tel of the it has
7:15 am
been ringing alarm bells over tehran's allegedly nuclear program it is simultaneously even ignoring calls from iran syria and other countries to join the nuclear nonproliferation treaty that's aimed at keeping the middle east free from weapons of mass destruction. israel has also not confirmed or denied if it has its own nuclear arsenal reporting from new york. are. the last wing the leaders of the us and iran spied directly for the first time and move on three decades however to a political analyst william and believe some groups in america don't want to miss the convenient image of iran as and any iran hasn't made a. hostile the war aggressive war on any nation for more than a century and a half and i certainly don't think they're insane enough to try to launch a war on israel which is armed to the teeth with nuclear submarines and other weaponry that would would. really not to not be to the advantage of iran at all so
7:16 am
i think this is a fabrication by a certain international war lobby in washington perhaps in britain france and certainly around the israeli defense industry and certain circles in israeli intelligence around netanyahu that that would want to have iran as a bogeyman to justify the continued support of washington to israel. and head to old line to see will tao web how lined up for you that including the latest snowden leak the n.s.a. husband raking climate data on the web browsing habits of millions of innocent americans and this without war and in the interest of the case. and the run up to the sochi twenty fourteen winter games and the finals trade you can follow the flames on the invision page of our website it's just a click away for you on r.t. dot com. the u.s.

your vehicle will go into the election safe in the knowledge they're not alone. reporting from front. and up next on season breaking the satire with the latest snowden revelations and other news missing from the global media headlines. recently the ministry of internal affairs of russia declared that they're going to address to increase operations in and around the moscow subway system with a major emphasis on illegal immigration there is an odd paradox when people talk about dealing with illegal immigration in terms of what the police should do people want the police to deal with it but any means of trying to actually do. we think are generally taboo any form of asking people to see ideas you do as an invasion of privacy or racial profiling well i don't know how exactly anyone can prove they are
7:26 am
or aren't a citizen without id and if you're looking for people who are forward and thus different then how can you go about looking for illegals without looking for people who are different i.e. profiling if you were looking for a criminal of slavic origin in uganda when the police be wrong to stop me due to standing out from the crowd i don't think so that's not racial profiling it is just common sense obviously it is best to fight the causes of illegal immigration rather than asking for id in moscow subways but they have to do something so i guess id checks are here to stay but there's a big difference between looking at someone's passport and doing stop and frisk or involuntary blood and urine tests that is what immigration control goes over the line but that's just my opinion.

voter registration polls g.p.s. location property records and even banking history the government's been doing this since two thousand and ten for the stated purpose of tracking potential foreign intelligence on u.s. networks but obviously the surveillance and compass is far more than just that to give you an idea of the massive scope of this interconnected maze internal documents reveal that in just one day one day twenty billion events can be recorded and delivered to analysts within one hour look it's not surprising that individual profiles are being created for every american that we already know what is disturbing is the six degrees of kevin bacon approach the n.s.a. is using to implicate us all. it was a. very hard to take. ever had sex with a big.
