Farage Unleashed: "You Are Common Criminals"

Tyler Durden's picture


"Years ago, Mrs Thatcher recognized the truth behind the European Project," UKIP's Nigel Farage reminds his European Parliament 'colleagues', "she saw that it was about taking away democracy from nation states and handing that power to largely unaccountable people." In one of his most wonderfully vitriolic remonstrations, the fiery Farage blasts Europe's leadership, "this European Union is the new communism." Slamming Olli Rehn and his Troika cohorts for "resorting to the level of common criminals and stealing people's money", Farage warns, rather chillingly, that, "it is power without limits. It is creating a tide of human misery and the sooner it is swept away the better." Simply put, he concludes, the European Parliament is living out a federal fantasy which is no longer sustainable.


Full Transcript:

Years ago, Mrs Thatcher recognised the truth behind the European Project. She saw that it was about taking away democracy from nation states and handing that power to largely unaccountable people.


Knowing as she did that the euro would not work she saw that this was a very dangerous design. Now we in UKIP take that same view and I tried over the years in this parliament to predict what the next moves would be as the euro disaster unfolded.


But not even me, in my most pessimistic of speeches would have imagined, Mr Rehn, that you and others in the Troika would resort to the level of common criminals and steal money from peoples' bank accounts in order to keep propped up this total failure that is the euro.


You even tried to take money away from the small investors in direct breach of the promise you made back in 2008.


Well the precedent has been set, and if we look at countries like Spain where business bankruptcies are up 45% year on year, we can see what your plan is to deal with the other bailouts as they come.


I must say, the message this sends out to investors is very loud and clear: Get your money out of the Eurozone before they come for you.


What you have done in Cyprus is you actually sounded the death knell of the euro. Nobody in the international community will have confidence in leaving their money there.


And how ironic to see the Russian prime minister Dmitry Medvedev compare your actions and say, ' I can only compare it to some of the decisions taken by the Soviet authorities.'


And then we have a new German proposal that says that actually what we ought to do is confiscate some of the value of peoples' properties in the southern Mediterranean eurozone states.


This European Union is the new communism. It is power without limits. It is creating a tide of human misery and the sooner it is swept away the better.


But what of this place, what of the parliament? This parliament has the ability to hold the Commission to account.  I have put down a motion of censure debate on the table. I wonder whether any of you have the courage to recognise it and to support it. I very much doubt that.


And I am minded that there is a new Mrs Thatcher in Europe and he is called Frits Bolkenstein. And he has said of this parliament - remember he is a former Commissioner: 'It is not representative anymore for the Dutch or European citizen. The European Parliament is living out a federal fantasy which is no longer sustainable.'


How right he is.

If only Farage was just as outspoken when criticizing the politicians in his own country and the City of London (where his father made millions as a broker, paying for Nigel's education in one of the exclusive private colleges where the UK's elites and politicians meet their future cronies).

Strangelly, whe's only outspoken against foreigners and only in vague ad hominem attacks.

One might almost think that Nigel Farage's speciality is simply to hypocritically pander to the prejudices and unsupported sense of superiority that a certain segment of the British (and the American) public has against foreigners ...

UKIP is the fasting growing political party in the UK. Would you bet the breakthrough wouldn't come in the next general election? People are slowly waking up and turning to UKIP as the only common sense party who actually look after the interests of the working man, instead of the interests of the global elite.

Rand is a hawk who sold out to the embodiment of nearly everything he claims to be against, Mitt Romney. He not merely endorsed him, but "happily". It took 30 years for Dr. Ron Paul to get noticed. Rand can spend another 30 years living up to his father before I trust him.

Neither does Farage - he has yet to raise a rokus about "printing, high taxes, defecit spending, etc." in his own country.

Farage's speciality is to go on vacations to Brussels, paid by the EU, and there raise a rokus about anything and everything of the policies of countries other than the UK.

It requires no balls to go to the EU, under the protection of all its treaties and with the implicit support of his country and complain all about those filthy foreigners. It's like going to visit the house of somebody who is an impecably polite host and criticize everything about it while ignoring the filthy mess that his own house is. (I've met people like that and they're scum)

I've been waiting for a long time to hear him complaining about British Pound inflation from the Bank of England's money printing or the excessive influence of te City of London in British politics or the collusion between the Press and the main political parties in the UK. So far, no show!

As much as I like Nigels scull splitting of the concrete mastodont, I am left with a hmmmm, when I read the sheet on Frits Bolkenstein, that Nigel pulls out as a beacon of light here.

Connected with Shell. Later with Bank Menatep and Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky in an alleged scandal involving secret accounts in Clearstream - a Deutche Boerse clearinghouse of sorts. As commissioner he was involved with developing patent rules. The beforementioned tidbits are enough to caution my enthusiasm before cheering further for Nigels focus of praise. Additional fact seeking is warrated.

That's more or less my point here:

- Nigel Farage is a member of the status quo, not the EU status quo but the UK status quo.

He has no intention that the financial system is fixed, money printing stops, the markets become trully free, the law applies equally to all or sane economic management is back. What he wants is that HIS set of cronies get the bigger slice of the cake rather than the other set of cronies.

Cheering a for this guy just because he's a loudmouth is pretty shortsighted.

Bolkestein won the 1998 Dutch elections for his party (VVD) in 1998 on an eurosceptic and populist platform and then promptly left for Brussels to fill a lucrative position as European Commissioner. He left his party in the hands of Hans Dijkstal, who diametrically opposed all of the positions which made his party the big winner at the elections.

It is one of the causes of the Fortuyn revolt in 2001/2002.

That doesn't make him wrong about what he is saying regarding the eu taking private property from it's citizens. He can be a shill for the city, and be right about what a bunch of whores the eu are.

Also, British common law holds property rights as inviolate. When the uk starts direct confiscation (yes, not including artificial inflation before you blow a gasket) of. private wealth or property then I'll start to tell Farage to pipe down. Until then, he can let the eu bastards have it.

err, one might also be excused for thinking that the man's skin of his teeth survival from a plane crash(a common element in the untimely demise of many a Merikan political dissenter!) might have caused Nigel to bite his tongue a bit before callin out the elites closer to where he calls home!

Hey, if you don't like the guy just open up n say so!

ps...I very much suspect that Mr F's 'speciality' as you put it, is pandering to that segment of British society which is somewhat put out about now feeling like 'foreigners' in the country of their birth...

You know, I really don't have a big problem with that.  Doing what I do I've probably made "millions" (like maybe 2 of them!) if you add it all up over the years.  So, no, that really doesn't bother me unless he did it by lying, cheating and stealing.

Nice strawman there. Nothing like a lovelly generalization and trying to put words on my mouth.

Feel free to point out where Nigel Farage has ever criticized money printing by the BoE, the City of London or the Financial Industry in the UK.

Until then, I have no reason to believe that he is a fair an honest man as willing to criticize those who employ his family and friends as he is foreigners.

Nigel Farage continues:


“Now everyone has decided, the Bank of England, the Fed, and the European Central Bank, who are utterly brilliant people that have led us to the mess we are in, they’ve all decided that the solution is quantitative easing.  The solution is to go on printing and creating false money in an attempt to buy our way out of the (ongoing) crisis.


My take on that, my historical perspective is that all we are really doing is actually compounding the problem....

A)  Well played to his father.  Why hate him just because the man made some money?

B) WTF does it matter which college he went to?  Clearly he is not brainwashed or working with the 'UK's elites and politians' 

At least this man is out there making a stand against the status quo.  WTF are you doing for Europe or the UK that allows you to be so high and mighty?

Wed, 04/17/2013 - 17:07 | 3463182 Acet
Acet's picture

The man is part of the status quo in the UK. His father made many millions working for financial services and he himself went to the exclusive kind of college attended by the heads of the main UK parties and by other members of the elites. The only way in which he could be more part of the status quo in the UK than that would be if he was a member of the Royal Family.

He has yet to critcize the status quo or the elites in his own country: all he ever criticizes is foreigners, never the status quo in his own country.

The oldest ploy in the book that the status quo uses when trying to maintain their priviledges is to convince the riff-raff that the fault is all of the foreigners.

Lo-and-behold the guy who just happens to have a father who made a lot of money in financial services and who attended the same schools as other members of the elites ALWAYS blames the foreigners for all the problems of the UK.

Sorry but i don't buy it.  You dont like that his father made some money and that he went to a fancy school.  That is hardly his fault and frankly he should be congratulated for having a mind of his own.  Considering the few leaders with such a positiive stance, maybe we should be more supportive, until the point they turn out to be just like the rest....which he has yet to do as far as I can see.  


Not everyone who works in finance is the devil.

Wed, 04/17/2013 - 19:11 | 3463843 Acet
Acet's picture

My point is that Nigel Farage has a potential conflict of interest because of his family's tradition and that he had the kind of upbringing (private boys college) that in the UK is tightly associated with members of the elite.

I'm also pointing out that he criticizes the EU and its elites for economic mismanagement and yet does not criticize the UK's institutions and it's elites for similar economic mismanagement.

Last but not least, blaming the EU for everything while remaining mute about the mismanagement of its own government and elites is a common ploy in the UK by politicians from the mainstream parties and by certain newspapers who have deep and tight connections with mainstream parties.

Given all this, I find Nigel's motivations suspicious.

So far in this thread I've heard a lot of fanboyism and hero worship and yet not a single poster has pointed me out an instance of Nigel Farage criticizing the UK's institutions for things like money printing.


PS: I actually worked in Investment Banking in the City of London, so your ad hominem attack on me for seemingly implying that "everyone who works in finance is the devil" was exceptionally idiotic.

I find him a sympathetic character, and I like listening to him. But I too wonder about his motives. I doubt he is so outspoken because his heart bleeds for the people of Europe. He's certainly not risking anything politically at home by speaking out against the euro dream/nightmare. I do like that he's around and that he makes the EC look like fools.

I do not see any form of law enforcement doing so.  They are in on the take.

It will be up to the people.  However, the breaking point is very high.  People will put up with a lot until a crack in the dam.  At that point I would guess it escalates into a civil war - people vs govt. Once that happens there is no turning back.

NOW I call for action.


Not violence. But quit fucking around. This will destroy the world as you know it. So please wake up an quit parsing,. And ego feuding. And whatever. This is some serious business here so quit wasting time.\

Quit wasting time and energy on your ego jokes and crap. Quit wasting time on garbage.  Your future; your children's future depends on your decisions.


What kind of nonsense is this?  Seems to me that most comments here desreve to be put in the garbage of propoganda or stupidity or brainwashed or fanatsy.


GET REAL you silly deluded folks. I am not going to save your butt. Nor is the lying bastards called USA.   Nor is your opinion of Farage. God knows none of you idiots have the balls to stand up and do what he does daily.

I will repeat that. Most of you, as you pour your beers and sit in judgement and collect the paychecks others envy and bash every homleess guy, and mourn the death of Republican politics and sit on your fat asses and portfolios.  I say How dare you?


Fuck off and die.  You have absolutely not one clue hoe HATED the Yankee crap is world-wide.  (not the people, It is the gov't. CIA and allllll of the lies.) The Yankee dollar is dying. Will I mourn? Will Farage mourn?  Tell you kid. Ain't my problem you have lived a lie and deluded yourself for decades. The whole world wiaits for the downfall of the American ego machine.

He´s working for the Rotschilds, who themselves have bet on the demise of the Euro several times already btw, you can easily google more references but here is a link for starters, it´s from the Torygraph so you Farage lovers can´t doubt that source:

Oh Nigel Farage, Esteemed fellow of the Corporation of the City of London, such intricate webs you spun, and look at all those flies you´re catching in them, well done mate!

One note of warning though; Brits mistaking him for a proper hero are in for a rude awakening if he would ever come in a position of power, if anyone is a bankers lackey it is Mr. Farage. Here is an interview with him from the Daily Bell (

Daily Bell: You have an affection for London's City. Tell us why.

Nigel Farage: Generations of my family have worked in the City.

I could go on for hours about the hypocrisy of the guy but I´m tired and need a beer, you can do your own fuckin research or not, besides, it´s not like a single soul on the continent takes anything coming out of Britain seriously anymore these days anyway.

Hope you found a good beer.  Look, have a little pity on we colonists.  Farage is freaking entertaining - and we're all about being entertained.  Besides, we have all accepted that all politicians are lying scumbags.  That Nigel can't walk on water is well known - and ignored.  And he seems to be kicking the very people we so long to kick.  BTW - as regards taking Britain seriously - I hope I don't offend you by observing that when John Paulson was stuffing idiot investors with junk CDOs in his Aurora trades, the boyz from the City qued up nicely.  The fact that John was laughing as they left should not be taken to mean he didn't take them seriously - he took them very, very seriously.  Tits up, mate.

Wall st and the city are just geographical locations.

Farage takes exception to an ideology.

The geographic location of his attack happens to be Brussels but it could be anywhere.

The city of London was set up to be independent In direct opposition to totalitarian control, while Brussels was set up to implement it.

Although I did get a laugh from hearing him (sedately) cheered early on in that speech, it's easy not to love UKIP, because they don't address the fundamental problem of a privatised, debt-based money supply. Indeed no UK party questions the Bank of England's monopoly on the creation of currency, even though our central bank isn't terribly subtle about the fact that they're a private company, rather than a .gov organisation.

1. Ok, in HINDSIGHT (which we ALL) get to enjoy, I'll retract having "W" in the same league of public speakers.  Fine.  But let me ask you this:  Did you (a) vote for him and (b) did you not applaud and cheer him after his 911 speech?  The point is, he did has his motivational moments.  And NONE of us are immune from getting pulled in.  It's natural.

2. Note my disclaimers:  "Not that I disagree...", or "Cautiously Optimistic".  Did any of this actually sink in?  Or do you feel free to parse, cherry pick and repackage?  Like they do on FOX TV?

3. His political "Deliverables" on the job consist of... next to nothing.  His role is that of an Attack Dog (Euro critic).  When your role is to criticize, and not take ownership for creating policies, you sure can come up with great zingers.  It's easy to destroy, difficult to build. 

So... notwithstanding #2 above, let's try to stay objective -- even as fans.  Which, as I've said, I'm one of.  And even though I think that Ron Paul -- who was also there -- is more genuine.  But that's just me.

The UK is very much part of Europe.

Thatchers policies of internal destruction of the UKs primary & secondary industry was the mirror image of Europes mercantile growth but to be fair this was a much older project starting after Suez.

Its also a major part of the troika.

Its the other side of the real goods coin.

Farage wants us to devalue against Sterling...................this is better then the current euro situation where we have little internal means of exchange but the Uk will then remain in reals goods deficit.

It's the standard evolution of great nations and great empires when they are past their peak and start sinking into mediocrity:

- People loose the risk-taking and fighting spirit, retain some prosperity for a while by exploiting what's left over from their previous greatness (but without building anything new) and have a smug sense of superiority based only on celebrating past exploits, not because of present ones.

You can see some of it in all places that were once the seats of great cultures and empires, like Egypt, Greece & Italy.

I have always voted Tory previously, but I dont see myself doing so again. In fact I got a bit curious about UKIP 18 months ago, and actualy became a member of the `party` , and for the princely sum of £40 have been bombarded ever since with invitations to meetings of local members in pubs - get togethers in private houses - events where Mr F himself is speaking and endless e mail links to media coverage. I have to say the organisation is impressive. It is gaining traction in middle England at a steady pace and will destroy the Tory vote at the next election. However there is a hell of a long road to travel before even winning a serious number of westminster seats is realistic. And dare I say it a lot of policy to be set out...

I have related on here before how 6 odd years ago I had occasion to e mail my Euro MP reps about a bit of agriculture legislation (because we elect our Euro MP`s via proportional representation each `citizen` has more than one) Labour / Tory & Lib Dem reps replied by post with varying degrees of condescension and disinterest. Farage (who I had never heard of before) rang me up - at 8 am the next morning, having read and understood my letter he explained exactly how the vote would go, who would vote with whome and what the outcome would be. He was 100% acurate in his prediction, he described the legislation as `bollocks` and assured me he would vote against it (with the French, which amused him greatly) it did not get through. That Gentlemen is how our elected representatives should behave.
