Watch Nigel Farage Dance On The Euro's Grave

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Nigel Farage needs no introduction: the famous Euroskeptic is one of very few men who has had the temerity to question, often in an abnormally high decibel fashion, the stupidity of the Eurozone leaders from day one. Now that he has been proven correct, he has every right to gloat, which he does to everyone's delightful amusement in the European parliament. The look on the unelected von Rompuy's face, especially as he watches his decade-long bureaucratic nirvana crash and burn every single day, is quite priceless.

Well now, good show, Nigel, old boy - I suppose next you're going to kick the world elite scumbags out of London - the world fortress of bankster "services" - i.e. the hedgefund hidy-hole and fiat-leverage, UK taxpayer and BOE+US FED/Wall Street  sponsored NWO center of financial terrorism against sovereign states and the world's working masses?

No, Nigel Farage is an arsehole, I don't know why ZH promotes this guy.

It wasn't long ago that he was calling for the army on the streets to 'crush' the 'criminals' smashing shit up in the UK, while he was proclaiming the Greek government corrupt as people were smashing shit up there.

He's actually the Bank of England's man. The Old Lady visits him in his dreams & he is happy.

And last I looked, the Euro is trading 1.3457 to the US dollar & gold is down in Euro's. The Euro is well alive, liver than the US dollar & Farage is full of shit.

Firstly, credit where credit is due, Farage was right about Europe.

Secondly, criticism where it's due, his party is a basket case which promotes the sycophantic business centric, market orientatated, wanking hierarchical corporated shitfest which has caused the fucking problem in the first place.

I'm not even sure credit is due there. There has been a recurring debt crisis in Europe  for decades, look at the EMU during the 1990's. It's not surprising that many governments offloaded gold at 'low' prices at the time, they had no choice.

Anyone with half a brain could have predicted a debt crisis to reoccur in Europe.

Anyone could have predicted it but the silence should tell you something. Anyone with have a brain the Euro couldn't work and that Europe as a whole would collapse under debt.

The thing is that was the whole fucking point and it's the people in charge, the un-elected assholes that Farage points out that are the ones who stand to grab total power when the whole house of cards collapses.

Don't suppose for a second that they plan to have a form of government that protects individual liberties. This clusterfuck is designed to end that experiment once and for all. Can't have Joe Blow working his ass off and accumulating wealth and challenging the status quo. now can we.

No, these assholes intend, as someone else here aptly labeled, peonism for us.

I don't know about the Bank of England but he is clearly a staunch defender of The City (close enough).  Perhaps its a jingoistic perspective where he sees all this as a financial warfare recreation equivalent of The Battle of Britain.  Some myths die hard.

My experience of Nigel Farage is as follows:

2006 - I wrote, via e mail to all 4 (uk) Euro MPs responsible for representing my area of the Uk. The subject was my concern for the unintended consequences which would result from a badly thought out bit of Agriculture legislation - yes I had skin in the game.

Result was as follows.

UK conservative party sent a standard `thank you for your interest in the legislation` letter back

UK Labour party did not respond

UK LibDems sent patronising letter implying that I was not in possesion of enough knowledge to have an opinion.

UK-IP (Indepandance Party) Nigel Farage personaly telephoned me at 8am the following morning. Thanked me for my letter, took some further details. Explained to me what the voting process would be & sympathised with my position. He then explained that due to pressure from the French Farming Lobby the legislation would be DOA, and that on this occasion he would be voting with the French because the legislation was `utter nonsense` (his words) A week later he was proved correct.

I can tell you that on the phone he is just as irreverent and on the ball as in the above clip. Up to that point I had never heard of him, I could not believe I was talking to a politician or that I could have the good fortune to have such a person acting as my elected representative. He put the rest of the useless fuckers to shame.

nearly all the sovereign debt is irredeemable in the larger sense of purchasing power isn't it?  however britain can make pounds like the u.s. can make dollars.  greece, italy, spain, france can't make euros.  isn't that part of nigel's argument?  

i particularly liked his allusion to the original purpose of the eu, to counterbalance the weight of germany and integrate europe.  as he noted now we have germany being pushed by eurocrats to force "austerity" and more debt peonage on the mediterraneans.  if they still had armies one might be moved to observe "ww3 anyone?".

You get it.  The rest of these people on ZH seem to think that the architects of the E.U. and this global economic system are truly incompetent and that they have lost control.  No, they are devious, but not incompetent.  Your end game for Europe is exactly correct.  This so-called "crisis" is engineered toward the ends you describe.

 

They rather liked feudalism, after all, their families ruled humanity and lived as Gods.  So it shall be again under the neo-feudal New World Order.  And it only took them a couple hundred years to stamp out democracy and individual liberty for the masses.

Ok, but debate one single thing he said in that speech? He has guts to call out this unelected group of Eurocrats who subvert democracy everywhere they go. 

You are complaining that people are criticized for people smashing shit? I'm not exactly opposed to mob violence when absolutely necessary, and Greece certainly has reached that point, but this guy is talking about DEMOCRACY, and smashing shit is not exactly democracy. I don't really get what you're complaining about. 

And comparing Euro and dollars is like asking who is the skinniest pig. Plus, you have Chinese propping up the Euro to keep their exports cheap.

Yes, that's what I said, he is the Bank of England's man. The Bank of England has been serially defaulting on its obligations for centuries.

When the price of gold begins to rise relentlessly, then & only then should anyone dance on the grave of the Euro. Same goes for the Pound, USD & even Australian dollar.

From Wikipedia 

Farage was educated at Dulwich College before joining a commodity brokerage firm in London. He ran his own brokerage business from the early 1990s until 2002.

The guy IS a banker for fucks sake.

Amazing how astute some people are about Farage. He is very charming in person, but say anything contrary to his narrow world view, and watch him rant like Hitler with all the accompanying spittle and mad smiles. He certainly is not wrong in this particular  tirade, but people like him make a bad situation infinitely worse, just when you think it couldn't get any worse. He reminds me of the sort of politicians that crawled out of the populist woodwork and wreaked havoc with nationalist clap trap, and divisive religious/racial hatred in the former Yugoslavia. 

 

The reason for ZH's love affair with Farage should be obvious. He is pure entertainment, and he hates Europe, just like most Americans praying for a bit of diversion from their own problems. The fact that Germany has thus far rejected the ECB being the lender of last choice, and thereby rejected the US model of the Federal Reserve should speak volumes about what kind of a regime people like Cameron, Farage, et al in the Anglo-American banking bumchum club are advocating whilst at the exact same time criticising Germany for not being "decisive and bold" enough. 

 

We should be thankful that the ECB is not like the Federal Reserve. The weakness of the ECB is also its strength as far as the taxpayers of Europe are concerned.

I'm inclined to disagree with you there. The ECB is different in that it does not have the right to sell bonds on its own ticket but that's it. The problem within Europe is that all these countries are at different stages of collapse. there are those that think they can still manage it and those that wish they could still manage it but they're all in the same fiat boat.

the Fed is the same in this regard but there is far less transparency in the US system. Same ultimate result though...

Not quite sure what you disagree with considering I haven't disputed the basic premise of a central bank, but I agree with you. 

 

Thinking aloud - When Greece leaves the Eurozone, I'm betting on BAC and AIG filing chapter 11 on the day of the credit event. We're also bound to see such wailing and crying from the European private and central banks that I fear the climate would be ripe for the Goldman Sachs of this world to consolidate a stronger ECB with all the powers to print to infinity in the single currency (If they can get rid of Merkel and the German fear of hyperinflation). That would make the Goldmans the ultimate controller of the two strongest fiat currencies on the planet - a system to devalue the wealth of billions of people, and keep us all teetering on the verge of high inflation to make us all work harder or die.

While I admire many of tha attributes of those you have named, it is delusional in the extreme to think that they could effect any change in the Federal Central Planning System that has grown like a cancer in DC since it illegally took virtually all power from the sovereign states of the Union back in 1868 (when the 14th Amendment was "adopted", rather than ratified by the States).

The next election (which I believe will be cancelled, anyway, in 3Q12) is for just half of the Congress of 535 parasites (which recently extended the Patriot Act for 4 more years by a vote of 323-176) - which means that any "dream team" of Prez and VP has fuck-all chance of "fixing" the broken lobby-whore system.

Wishing for a 'saviour' leaves you and 300 million countrymen wide open for a dictator to be appointed (by TPTB) rather than a leader elected (by the delegates).

Save yourself and your community from the Borg ... SECEDE NOW!!

the next election is for more than half of congress:  all of house, 1/3 of senate (also prez).  secession?  at the individual level has some merit.  anything larger is a dead end imo, emphasis on the first word.  

voting is actually easy and powerful, given a good candidate.  it's the last that's the hard part.  paul/johnson '12 could be a start.  elizabeth warren in mass couldn't hurt either.

Yeah, kinda looks like we're headin that way here (with Ron Paul). I'll take him over what we have now.

I do know that a lot RP supporters (from the left side) will ditch him in the general election. Its a time honored thing here (in the South anyways) to promote what is percieved as the weakest candidate in the primary so he gets knocked out in the general.

It won't be hard for a confirmed lying POS like O'bama to run to the right of a percieved weakness on RP's part in foreign policy. The majority of the population is clueless. I'm not a warmonger but at the same time there are nations and groups within nations who are, so sticking our collective heads in the sand doesn't face reality.

I'm interested in exploring Buddy Roehmer who gets even less exposure than RP.

Jeff, if RP makes it to the general he will of course get my vote.

My preference in a President is always someone who has been at the helm of large organizations/departments before...govenors, CEO's. That way I can judge them as administrators, which is what a President is in the final analysis.

How did they lead?...by example or decree? Did they delegate authority/responsibility or rule like tyrants? Did they pick the right people to run the individual departments? What were their successes/failures? How did they react to success, gloat & swagger or the calm confidence of I told you so. And the failures too (we all have them) did they roll up in a ball & cry or learn and move on etc.

I also try to look at things in a historical context. The "crisis of our time" is debt and fiscal responsibility.

He could very well be "the One we've been waiting for"...lol...and I'm too locked in to my process of evaluation to see the forest for the trees.

Time will tell...most people are ABO (Anybody But Obama) we need to choose wisely this time.

I agree 100%. We should keep spending half the budget on defense, which is 50% of the entire world's budget. Because if every country in the world attacked us simultaneously we'd only have a 50-50 shot at beating the entire world combined. So we should continue to hold bases everywhere, and prop up every tin-pot dictator that lets our loving corporations have carte blanche. It's worth the bloodshed to keep the markets open to our way of life. LivermoreJim I'm glad you don't read weird crap like Chomsky, Bastiat, Locke and Rothbard.

Respectfully disagree. If there were a debate, Obama would crush any of the Republican candidates but Newt, Mitt, and Ron. The rest are just trailer trash. [Full apologies to all denizens of trailers.] Ron won't be allowed to win, and Newt is using it as a front for selling books. If it actually looks like he might win, Newt'll fake a stroke and then write a book about it. That leaves Mitt, and either Mitt of Obama could hold their own against Nigel.

Ron would be best, but I can't see a path for him through the thicket of ignorance that is America. His style is too polite. Maybe Ron should take rhetoric lessons from Nigel?

Or Bernie Sanders, Maxine Waters, Barney Frank...this guy would bury Obama solely on being a good and eloquent speaker, not to mention, knowing WTF is going on...After watching his videos, I feel as if politicians in the US, are just born pussies.  They get heated, but its never truly at each other ...Our Congress only gets mad at a corporation(when they have the upper hand) or when the respective senator is not in session and is playing golf.  It's almost as if they get the job because they hit high marks in the ivy league, yet lacked the balls to go into banking.  The only way to guarantee their evolution and generational progress is for them to rattle some sabers and somehow yield a bill, school or park named after them... This would provide their useless, soft palmed descendants a chance to climb higher.

What would happen , of course, is that Nigel would be gunned down live on national TV. By a lone lunatic who all the neighbors thought was "quiet, but kinda creepy" - and somehow managed to make 6 miraculously accurate shots in 2.5 seconds with a ragged old bolt-action. All made possible by a wildly improbable "chain of errors" by his secret service protection detail.

It would all be very sad, but no one would blame the SS superheroes who would have taken a bullet for him (had they not all been on break)("The message came over the radio; we're not sure who gave the order..."). Then after a decent interval, Nigel would be replaced by Jon Corzine or Chelsea Clinton or Jerry Sandusky or Bozo the Clown. Life and the elections would go on, Democracy would continue on in its 230 year winning streak, & the terrorists would See We're Not Afraid.

I think it has mutated to oligagarchy some time ago. funny how every system humans try end up with that, before anarchy. And just have to say, maybe Farage says many right things above, but I still get the feeling that he shares a very nasty fault with a Hitler, called nationalism. And while patriotism is mostly love of your country, nationalism is most often hate of other countries.

Agreed. There have always been "World Orders". The British Empire ruled the Globe at one stage.

I do find the overuse of the term New World Order annoying.

A New World Order was established after the Second World War.

The USA took the lead role.

So now something else comes this way.
