Infamous Euroskeptic Nigel Farage Goes Nuts In European Parliament, Tells A Little Too Much Truth

Tyler Durden's picture


...and would probably be kicked right off CNBC for daring to do that. Nigel Paul Farage, who is a member of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) Member of the European Parliament for South East England, but most notably one of the most famous euroskeptics, goes nuts on EU Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, tearing down the commission self-evaluation, and noting among many other things that according to EU polls, in the last 6 months those having faith in the EU has dropped by 10% in Germany, 17% in Greece, 9% in Portugal, and "less than half of EU citizens believe that being a mamber of the club is worth it." On the ever debated topic of the one currency, Farage says that the "euro doesn't suite Germany and doesn't suite Greece." The most damning statement address to Barroso: "People don't respect you because you cheated to get the Lisbon Treaty through." With truth like this you know this will be a must watch clip. All it is missing is Santelli... and Erin Burnett to moderate.

Farage better be careful, someone might try and take him out, maybe in a light aircraft crash that's a favorite.

Oh wait someone tried that on Flash Crash day but they were so incompetent they even fucked that up.

The Brits are masters at using ordinary words that can be spoken in the most sensitive surroundings to inflict massive insults.

In fact, as things now stand, my dogs dinner might just look extremely good a year or two from now. In fact, I've heard from a good source (my dog) that Kibbles 'N Bits will provide me all the vitamins and nutrition a growing capitalist needs for a happy life and a shinny coat. Now all I need is for government to flea dip me and I'm all set for retirement.

Wow I have never heard of Nigel Farage before today, but he has given enlightning speeches. If any of the other members had any integrity (and it sounds like they don't ) they would rally behind him.

'On 6 May, on the morning the polls opened in the election, just before eight o'clock Farage was involved in a light plane crash, suffering injuries described as non-life threatening. A spokesperson told the BBC that "it was unlikely Mr Farage would be discharged from hospital today [6 May] ... He suffered facial cuts and bruises and injuries to his chest and there might be some damage to his ribs." The plane was towing a UKIP banner, and initial reports suggested that the plane crashed after the banner was caught up in the engine'

Canvassing door to door usually works better and is less dangerous. But it does involve talking to the public. I can see why he tried the plane.

He is on safe ground, since he'll never get a mandate in the UK to wield any power. Therefore its easy to stand up and bash Europe as an MEP, and incidentally suits current PM David Cameron's purposes nicely (even if that would never be admitted publicly).

Still a politician though. So lets not praise him too highly.

'In May 2009, The Guardian reported that Farage had said in a speech to the Foreign Press Association that over ten years as a member of the European Parliament he received and spent nearly £2 million of taxpayers' money in expenses and allowances, on top of his £64,000 a year salary.'[13]

Farage is nothing but a simple, ordinary troll whos catering for conspiracy theorists, retarded nationalists and other folks in that league. 

Seeing so many people rave about such a completely populistic and senseless speech shows they clearly lack political education. 

I personally guess it is the same audience hailing "bitchez" and "desktop renderings" over and over again. 

Well, i like people to have a good time, enjoy your stupidity, and dont forget to boycott all elections. Should you be non-eu-nationals, please queue on the separate line reserved for tolerable ignorance.

The dream it was 30 years ago is now lost!

EU is a bizzare formation that bonds national powers and leads us to nowhere.

Lisbon Treaty transformed EU to something else, something against national pride.

The fact is that no one will fight for EU if a war occurs.

Not everything he says is false, but his interventions are purely destructive. He doesn't contribute any solutions except convincing his compatriots to return to their splendid isolation on their splendid but bankrupt island.

  One of the points that resonated with me was that the EU should have held referendums and not run over the peoples rights with non elected EU members making the choice for them. Democracy? It seems that the EU can make laws in those member countries that can't be amended or vetoed by the soveriegn governments which does away with the whole idea of democracy. A clown ?

Give us a vote on membership if you dare.
