• European Parliament, Strasbourg, 22 May 2012

• Speaker: Nigel Farage MEP, Leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), Co-President of the ‘Europe of Freedom and Democracy‘ (EFD) Group in the European Parliament – http://nigelfaragemep.co.uk

• Bluecard question: Georgios PAPANIKOLAOU MEP (Greece), Group of the European People’s Party (Christian Democrats) (EPP group)

• Debate: Preparation of the informal European summit – Investment, growth and jobs – Council and Commission statements [2012/2645(RSP)]:http://www.europarl.europa.eu/oeil/popups/ficheprocedure.do?lang=en&refer…


President, we’re in the midst of an economic and increasingly humanitarian crisis and yet Commission president Barroso is not here. Indeed, Herman van Rompuy is not here either. Not that it relly matters, because they’re not prepared to listen to any debate or any argument. They’re intent on pursuing their political dream of a United States of Europe. They’re prepared to commit 
economic suicide for an entire continent.

And tomorrow night Mr van Rompuy has called yet another summit at which he’s going to present a strategy for growth and jobs. Elected MEPs, representatives of the people of Europe from left and right – we’ve heard it all before – remember the euro itself was supposed to create growth and jobs and yet it is actively destroying both of those things.

The remedy we’re being offered is more of the same. I would suggest that the medicine is killing the patient, and to increase the dosage is madness.

And don’t listen to those who will tell you that the only alternative is for Greece to stay in the euro. Everyone’s pushing this. David Cameron, all the other leaders are saying, we must keep Greece in the euro, if she leaves the sky will fall in. 

It won’t! There’ll be a few difficult weeks and then things will settle down. There’ll be a boom in tourism, investment will start to come back into Greece, innovation will start to come back into Greece as people start making products to beat expensive imports. 

Indeed Greece outside of the eurozone may well provide to be an inspiration for Spain, for Portugal and many other countries. We need to recognise that a terrible mistake has been made. We must resolve to put it right. We’ve got to give people hope because out there now is absolute despair.

We all remember Dimitris Christoulas, the 77-year-old former pharmacist who shot himself dead outside the Greek parliament. But he is just one of a growing humanitarian disaster. Huge increases in suicides in Italy, in Greece, particularly from people running small businesses who cannot see a way out of the problem. Children being left in increasing numbers outside the doors of churches because they can’t afford to feed them.

Our leaders are too callous to listen and care. YOU can do something about this. YOU can rise up and say – and I know in my conversations with you that many of you agree with me, that I’m right – we’ve got to break up the euro; we’ve got to restore democracy; we’ve got to restore human dignity; we must ignore Messers Barroso and Van Rompuy, they have been proved to be wrong. WE must provide people with hope.

  1. George, we ran out of comment space on our initial conversation. So I’ll just say for right now, our best bet would be to put Ron Paul (and wishfully Andrew Napolitano) in the White House in 2012. It would be the best thing that could happen for America, and probably the entire world. But I doubt that will happen. The few elites and bankers running the show would never let Ron Paul win. They already have the majority of the people believing Ron Paul is no longer in the running at all. However, Dr. Paul is still running and gathering delegates, so at least he will be heard in Tampa. I think Dr. Paul knows the elections are rigged, so I don’t think he really expects to win. However, he does intend to enlighten the people and remind us of our Constitutional rights and I think he is still trying to expose the Federal Reserve as he has tried to do for 30 years. The two party system is a dog and pony show. Thankfully, there are a few smart Democrats who have registered Republican so they can vote for Dr. Paul. They realize it is not the party, it is the person, and the ideals, that we need to focus on. Anyway, I’m going to bed, but if you care to pick up on this conversation more tomorrow, I’m game!:) Sweet dreams, for now.


  2. They need to dismantle all of the ‘private’ banking operations and put the power of coinage back into the hands of each individual SOVEREIGN Nation, while there still are Sovereign Nations. The euro and rumored amero (which is yet to come) are tools of the NWO game plan. Their little monopoly could be dismantled by taking away their power of the purse(s). I hope Greece pulls the rug out from under the banking cartels. And I sure do wish Americans would wise up and demand that the Federal Reserve be abolished, too. By substituting real US currency instead of the counterfeit Federal Reserve notes that have all but driven our Nation into bankruptcy, we could reclaim our Identity and hopefully resurrect our Constitution. It appears he who controls the money, controls the Nation. It is past time for those tables to turn.


    • You know very well nothing will happen in the interest of the poor, never did never will, not by free will, not by consensus!


      • If enough people woke up and stood together (which means they’d have to quit quibbling about race, homosexuality, gender, etc.,) and focused on the corruption in D.C., then realized that the Federal Government and the private bankers are happy bed fellows, I think we as a Nation of people could make a dent. Knowledge is power. And it’s only been recently that the people have become aware of the shenanigans of the Federal Reserve and the IMF. When people realize that the IRS is a sham, set up to rob us by collecting illegal interest on illegal ‘federal reserve notes’, maybe together we can take the power of the purse back (in America). Until then, we are all screwed. The rest of the issues are a joke when compared to the power of the banks, and the threat of the NAU. If we ever lose our borders, we can kiss the rest of our Constitution and our rights good-bye. And it all hinges on who controls the money, because it is they who control the politicians. Maybe the American people need to exercise our rights (our duty) under our Declaration of Independence. That would no doubt set an example for the rest of the world to follow. Maybe Greece will get there first. Who knows? Who cares? As long as the bankers get toppled, one way or the other. If we are going to move, though, it had better be quickly, because the bankers are not wasting any time in their grab for power.


      • We need political pluralism: not demo-republicans running independent but rather new parties altogether, at least two, so the other people rather than the rich and famous are represented in the seats of economical, and political power.
