Get the UK out of the European Arrest Warrent agreement.

Why is this idea important?

The current system isn't working. It is allowing UK citizens to be arrested for allegations made in other countries where there is nowhere near enough evidence to allow charges in the UK for a similar allegation. That is wrong and leads to miscarriages of justice that we (the UK) cannot correct.

The European system of justice (based on Napoleonic Law) is fundamentally different from the UK system. It is wrong to try to mix them. UK justice should be consistent and we should not allow our citizens to be convicted on a lower evidence base than we should accept.

It is also wrong to allow non UK police to have jurisdiction in the UK. We should remain a sovereign state.
