SOT, Nigel Farage, UKIP leader (in English) "How on earth did the world exist before 2003? It's really difficult to imagine. I mean, were we in the stone ages in 2003 or have we had extradition deals with other countries for centuries?"

SOT, UKIP supporter (in English) "This country does not jail people unless they have been charged with a crime and convicted in a court of law; and that should be the case. We should not be handing powers over to the European Union to seize British citizens and take them abroad to foreign jails."

Nigel Farage and UKIP supporters demonstrated against government plans to opt-in to the European Arrest Warrant outside the Houses of Parliament in London, Monday. A group of UKIP supporters also entered Parliament to pressure their local MPs to reject the proposal.

In 2013 the government opted out of all 133 EU police and criminal justice measures. The decision should take hold on December 1. However, ministers now want to re-join 35 of the measures including the European Arrest Warrant. It is expected that many backbenchers will oppose the proposal of handing more powers to Brussels in the debate held in parliament.
