Nigel Farage Batters Barroso But Noyer Self-Deludes On European Crisis Ending

Tyler Durden's picture


Juxtaposing the market's recent movements, Nigel Farage's 'when-not-if' perspective on the end of the Euro, Weidmann's concerns, and now ECB's Noyer stunning self-delusion that, as Bloomberg notes:


is more than some can bear. As Mr.Farage notes, in the face of the rapidly deteriorating situation in Europe, Barroso and his colleague's ever-smiling perspective on the Euro, "look ridiculous". With Spanish yields over 6%, banks trading at near record high levels of funding costs, Italian risk elevating, political event risk becoming critical, and now macro data turning even worse perhaps Noyer's comments that "delaying fiscal consolidation may lead to greater risks" are spot on - and yet nation after nation rises-up votes to 'deny' austerity.

It's tragic that the only politicians who tell it like it is, Ron Paul and Farage are good examples, are not listened to by the masses, who are presumably too busy watching "Dancin' with Stars".

As the saying goes, "In a democracy, you get the Government you deserve".

The Tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.

It's great to see them grinning. Fools. Years later we'll be able to show these records and ask "who is laughing now".
Also this material may be admitted in the court of law.

Nigel talks about "spreads" in his rant.  How many of our Senators and Congress critters would understand what he's talking about?  Five, maybe ten?  Any bets?

One of the sad things is that Barroso and his ilk will have solid gold pensions on top of their bloated salaries and expenses.

Or maybe, just maybe, their pensions will go down the same plughole as everybody elses?  I'm crossing my fingers and hoping.

Watching Blair's reply to Farage in 2005 made me think of this clip:

I guess in the end, it was Farage who was right, triumphing *freedom* and *democracy* in Euro in order to save its union......and not the other way around.

Farage will just incite Barossa to run to his office to get on the hotline to Draghi to get the ECB to save the Euro dream once again.

and this is the answer. The Euros as well as Americans Japanese Chinese Brazilians, Indians, Mexicans, Canadians, Australians....will all do the same thing. This is a race and it is to the bottom. Print Baby Print is the cry and it is all they can and all they will do.

The answer to declaring debts null and void, to paying off unpayable debts and all the other threats of massive debts is the same thing  - print.

So printing it will be.

But who will default first? I'm hoping it's Greece, second guess Portugal, my 100 to 1 shot is Ireland. I'm talking about sovereign debt, not bank bailouts [Iceland].

As soon as "confidence" becomes the buzzword to save the economy, you know you are screwed.  A ponzi scheme would also work if everyone had confidence.  Bank runs won't happen if everyone had confidence.

I have confidence in math.  It says great things about gold and bad things about the economy.

I've made the same observations. When the Bernenke speaks of confidence in banks he knows exactly of what he speaks. It is all about confidence because that is all they have.

Offbeat curious article about upcoming 'arrests' of the European Union Commissioners, and others...

Not saying one should believe this ... but it is cheerful, optimistic, fun reading ... predicting the shortly upcoming complete downfall of the Bankster Cabal and the 'New World Order' ... by various nations' military forces suddenly working together against the political rulers ...

« ... these arrests will include those at the very top of the pyramid including within organizations as powerful as can be found on the planet. These groups that will be targeted are: the Committee of 300; the Bilderberg group; the Council on Foreign Relations; the Club of Rome; the Trilateral Commission and the European Commission. »

'Are militaries around the world preparing for final take down of New World Order cabal?'

bank guy - I wasted 3 minutes of my life on that silly link.

When I read the following I realized it was just one group trying for a NWO debunking another.

The Oneness University, out of southern India, and its leader Sri Bhagavan, are openly speculating that by the end of 2012, there will be 70,000 enlightened beings upon the Earth. This 70,000 is the critical mass number needed to shift the entire planet into a higher state of consciousness.
