The EU is not totally out of hand: Nigel Farage still gets to speak in the EU Parliament!
He raised the spectre of bloodless coups in both Greece and Italy to install leaders who would play ball. Since the Tweedledee and Tweedledum parties hold sway in both Greece and Italy, the people have little choice.
Here’s the video of Farage’s speech (thanks to UKIPmedia on Youtube):
Farage is correct when he says the leaders of the EU have no legitimacy and were not elected. He also hits hard on the EU elites removing the former Greek PM Papandreou for daring to suggest a referendum and that Italy should not have elections but selected a non-parliament member to be the new PM.
Did the EU Council President actually say Italy needs reform not elections? Yes he did in his own press release:
President Van Rompuy also called on the Italian leadership to clarify the political situation as soon as possible in order for a new government to implement the ambitious reform package without any delay. Italy needs reforms and not elections. Broad based political and social support are essential to reassure European partners and the international investors that Italy is committed to doing what it is necessary to set its debt on a steady downward path. Finally, he stressed that fiscal consolidation should go hand in hand with the structural reforms that are needed to enhance Italy’s growth potential and competitiveness.
Former Soviet CP General Secretary Brezhnev could hardly have said it better:
My comrades on the Politburo insist that we make an urgent approach to you on this matter and that we send you a diplomatic note to this effect, and I’m not able to restrain the comrades from sending such a note. [footnote omitted from article - this was a quote from a telephone call between Brezhnev and then Czech General Secretary Alexander Dubcek on August 13, 1968]
Now, I can still hardly believe the EU leaders would actually, a la Brezhnev, overthrow an elected government because of the eurocrisis, there is only billions of dollars at stake and the continued Euroempire’s existence potentially! I am still glad there is a Nigel Farage to speak out. What ALL the European nations need is a REAL liberty/sovereignty choice. In the UK you have it: UKIP.
