Farage Slams Eurozone As "Complete Economic Disaster"

Tyler Durden's picture


"The air is thick with denial in this chamber," is how UKIP's Nigel Farage begins his truthiness rant at the most recent European Council meeting. Reflecting on the Italian election and overwhelming success of 'Eurosceptic' political parties, Farage barks that it "is absolutely clear that Eurozone membership is completely incompatible with nation-state democracy." The complete denial (and "unutterable drivel") about the Eurozone crisis incenses him as he says "you'd think listening to everyone this morning that it's over." The real problem, he explains, is that they won't face up to the reality that "You are not facing up to the consequences for what you've done," as he tries to make the technocrats comprehend, "the Eurozone has been a complete economic disaster," because of the Euro - and the disaster is still coming down the tracks.

Did anyone else notice that there was some scattered applause amongst the Eurocrats when he finished criticizing the more criminal aspects of Bulgarian and Romanian emigration to England?

Cracks in the Eurozone beginning to form indeed...

Bulgarian & Romanian criminals.

Going to England, because theres nothing left worth stealing, in their own contries!

The politicians have already stolen it!

Remember, the Gypsies like to be known as "The Romany."

Why pick on Bulgaria?  He says BG is under the control of organized crime?  Well, they did turn down the Euro recently, have a very reasonable 16% debt to GDP and a 2% deficit.  Britian conversely is the epicenter of banster fraud, has debt-to-GDP hundreds of percentage points higher than that, and is the violent crime capital of Europe.  I rarely saw Bulgarians in London, but I saw a shitload of Africans, Pakis, and Banglis.  Did they all get there as a result of EU membership?  Seems like a cheap shot and a political point, not a reality-based point.  Then the Bulgarian guy complains and Farage quotes stats about Romania arrests.  Not the same fucking country, dude!

But at least the British government is doing its best to “protect” the people of the nation by putting up CCTV cameras everywhere. I had heard the stories about England being the capital of Big Brother style spying, where there is one CCTV camera for every 32 people but I had to see it for myself. Those fucking cameras are everywhere. Not that they help keep anyone safe, as one crime is solved for every 1000 cameras in England. However, when it comes time to crack down and declare martial law as the world ponzi fraud comes down and people take to the streets, they will be a very good way of controlling the sheep of Britain.

bombed by whom?

3 of the "islamic bombers" couldn't have done it, since they missed the train (so they were too late to be even at the scene)

the metal of the floor of the blown up bus was pointing upwards, which means the bomb was attached UNDERNEATH the bus

Yes. With all the CCTV cameras, why is there no video of the 7-7 bombers?

All that's been shown are a few obviously composited still pics.

Amazing! "hydrogen peroxide and pepper" ho-ho-ho

Two that were significant; 1 in 1993 and an even bigger one on 9/11. CCTV cameras wouldn't have prevented either one.

Another Nigel rant, how has he not gone postal sitting in that forum shouting at morons day after day?

I'm starting to appreciate Kyle Bass's advice to Buy Gold (and Sell JPY) and go to sleep....this is all getting very repetitive and very boring.

There is no inflation...or, I mean, it is contained at 2%. Your government answers to the people, not the ECB. All is well in Europe as corruption is a thing of the past. OR NOT!

Should read EU "poverty" with scare quotes, to clarify they mean relative, subjective poverty, not the real thing.    Real poverty is what you see in the turd world's shantytowns.

Hooray!  We only spent $3,0128,273.81 per hour more than we made last month.  Only in this country can the fact that we overspent by $203.5 billion be reported as positive simply because we did worse last year.
