Vi skal lige se lidt Farage for at fejre, at det er weekend. Capital Account fra Russia Today den 9. maj 2012. Lauren Lyster interviewer:
Nigel Farage on the “EU Titanic” and the “Rebirth of National Socialism in Europe”
Welcome to Capital Account. It’s Europe Day! And what a day it is, at a time when the political parties seeing gains in multiple countries are those who want less Europe, not more. In fact, some of them, like Golden Dawn want a rejection of all of Europe. We speak with Euroskeptic member of European parliament and leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, Nigel Farage about his recent speech in Brussels, his non-wine tasting event and his prospects for the European Union’s future.
Nigel Farage has talked often about the lack of democracy, the rise of technocracy, and predicted a country like Greece was headed towards some kind of revolution. We also speak to him about his party’s recent results in local elections in the United Kingdom, where UKIP had its best showing ever. For years, since the early 1990s when Farage was a founding member of the UK Independence party, Farage has been a Euroskeptic, pushing for the UK to pull out of the EU. For years he was a lone voice in European Parliament calling the Eurozone project a disaster.
And sticking to Europe, is Greece the poster child for what happens when the price mechanism of democracy, which has been suppressed by technocracy finally unleashes itself? Will technocrats, eurocrats, central bankers and big money succeed in manipulating it? Are we seeing the rise of national socialism in Europe and has the the EU titanic really hit the iceberg, as Nigel Farage put it during his latest speech to european parliament. Will this force a stop to the madness of integration as he sees it, or will the continent of Europe sink deeper into the sea of discontent and social unrest?
Lauren asks Mr. Farage if he thinks this is an important turning point for a country like Greece and for the EU, or if he thinks eurocrats in brussels will find some way, working alongside their viceroys in deficit countries, to keep Greece under their thumb?
