Nigel Farage - Big political change is coming in Britain

• 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)]
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
And sure enough, in your dull and technocratic way, you've gone about your course.
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.
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.
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
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.
