Nigel Farage -"Enough" European Taxpayers to stop Subsidizing the south

Nigel Farage - European Taxpayers to stop Subsidizing the south!
Report on the European Semester for Economic Policy Coordination: Annual Growth Survey 2014
European Parliament Plenary Session
Strasbourg, 25 February 2014

Mr President,

Minister Kourkoulas, on behalf of the Greek Presidency,

Honourable Members,

First of all, and since this is the first time that I have the opportunity to speak to this Parliament after the dramatic developments in Ukraine, allow me to say a few words about the situation in that European country; a country we feel so close to us now.

We were all shocked by the images of dead people and violence in Kiev. Our number one priority was to stop the bloodshed and create the conditions for a political process that can deliver what the Ukrainian people most wish for: democracy, respect for fundamental freedoms and a better prospect for the country's future.

A lasting solution for the political and institutional crisis can only be achieved through an inclusive transitional government that respects different political and regional sensitivities, and through constitutional reform and democratic elections as foreseen by the agreement of 21st February. Ukraine's unity and territorial integrity need to be respected. The High Representative is currently in Kiev speaking to all political forces, Rada representatives and civil society to assist in this process.
