Nigel Farage on European Union’s Nobel Peace Prize 12Oct12 (‘what a lot of tossers’)



Discussing the insane decision by the Nobel Peace Prize committee to give a price for peace to the European Union, despite the EU oppression, removing democracy, ignoring rule of law, planing Brussels yes-men as “leaders” in national governments, riots in many countries due to EU economic policies.

Recorded from BBC Daily Politics, 12 October 2012.

European Parliament, Strasbourg, 23 October 2012

• Debate: Conclusions of the European Council meeting of the 18-19 October 2012
– with statements by the European Council president Herman Van Rompoy and the Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso [2012/2640(RSP)]

Transcript: 

Well, Mr Van Rompuy, when you first appeared here in what proved to be a rather expensive speech, I said you’d be the quiet assassin of nation state democracy.

And sure enough, in your dull and technocratic way, you’ve gone about your course.

But I have to say, you’re even worse than I thought you were going to be. I thought it was just going to be a federal Europe – a federal union. But actually it appears with every statement you make that what you now want is the total subjugation of the states to completely undemocratic structures based in Brussels.

I misread the bailouts. I thought that when the bailouts happened – and I could see the panic around this chamber, people fearing the economic meltdown.

But you of course were calm through it all, because you saw the bailouts as your opportunity to take control. Just think how Ireland today is managed. Greece, for that matter. The sinister-sounding Troika [Commission-ECB-IMF] come in, 50 officials spend a few days in the country, investigate the situation and then tell puppet prime ministers what they may or may not do.

And I note great enthusiasm in this chamber for Spain to have a bailout. Lots of members here want Spain to accept the bailout so that they too are subjugated to this new order. Indeed in Italy, the appointee there, Mr Monti, is very keen for his own country to be bailed out, because, to quote him, he fears that parliamentary democracy could bring down the European Union

So I think it’s pretty clear that your next phase is for those who haven’t been bailed out and may not need to be bailed out; you now want them to sign guarantees, budget guarantees, and to have the power to strike down national budgets after they have been through parliaments.

I have to say, I feel that the eurozone is now in a very drk place, economically, socially, politically, and I fear that the countries trapped inside it – in that prison – will be there for many years to come. 

So it’s odd against this backdrop that the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the European Union. It’s true that Germany hasn’t invaded France since 1945, but I don’t think there was any prospect of that happening, unless of course what you’re all saying is that the Germans are inherently bad people.

No, the treath actually came from Russia, and we should be thanking NATO. And we should be thanking millions of American soldiers who served on European soil to maintain peace. Yet I don’t hear a word of that because we loathe America and everything that it stands for.

No, this is now a divided, split Europe, with neo-Nazi politics on the rise, with violent demonstrations in the streets. And I frankly think that the award of that Nobel Prize devalues that whole organisation.

Well, it’s not all bad news, because in Britain the opinion polls are clear that a clear majority of Brits now want to leave this Union, leaving David Cameron as piggy-in-the-middle, trying to pretend to be a Eurosceptic when he comes over here, going back home and claiming victories – but he’s stuck. And I predict one thing: Big political change is coming in Britain because he’s losing the support of millions of his own voters.

Today’s Birthday: MICHAEL CRICHTON (1942)


Michael Crichton (1942)

While pursuing a medical degree at Harvard University, the intensely private Crichton began writing novels under a pseudonym. He published The Andromeda Strain during his final year and went on to write several best-selling works, many of which were made into films, including Jurassic Park and Congo. He unexpectedly died of throat cancer in 2008. While in college, he once submitted an essay by George Orwell under his own name as an experiment. What grade did he receive? More… Discuss

This Day in the Yesteryear: THE HUNGARIAN REPUBLIC IS OFFICIALLY PROCLAIMED (1989)


The Hungarian Republic Is Officially Proclaimed (1989)

The defeat of the Central Powers in WWI brought the dual monarchy of Austria-Hungary to an end and led to the creation of an independent Hungarian republic, which, in 1949, came under Communist control. Though a 1956 uprising was suppressed, Hungary became the most tolerant of the Soviet bloc nations of Europe and finally replaced Communism with a multi-party democracy with free elections in 1989. Hungary’s relative freedom compared to other Eastern bloc countries led to what satirical nickname? More…Discuss

Environment: GROUNDWATER EXTRACTION LINKED TO LORCA QUAKE


Groundwater Extraction Linked to Lorca Quake

Scientists say a deadly earthquake in Spain last year was likely triggered by decades of groundwater extraction, which caused an 820-foot (250-meter) drop in the groundwater level of the Alto Guadalentin basin over the past half a century. The town of Lorca, where the 5.1-magnitude quake claimed the lives of nine people in May 2011, is located in a seismically active region. Researchers believe that the removal of groundwater placed stress on the nearby Alhama de Murcia Fault, leading to the earthquake. More…Discuss
