Someone needs to put together a Nigel Farage “Greatest hits” YouTube page.

Farage speaks common sense in the face of nonsense that is trying to create a New World Order through regional governments and eventually a world government.

Inside of our own country there are those who try to unify suburbs with cities to create super governments in order to bail out cities that are facing financial ruin.

They are as deceitful as the EU hawkers claiming it will “save money” when it will only save money for the urban areas as the expense of higher taxation for the suburban areas to pay for the cities massive expenses because of issues like high crime and poverty.

Contrary to what Nigel says, it was obvious from the outset that the Common Market was a necessary step on the path to a single state.

I found one, but it only has 4 or five videos.

Some of his interviews with the US press are fantastic.

Wrong.

A Common Market was acceptable to the people of Europe. It didn’t turn out to be a Common Market but a constraining Customs Union - but that’s beside the point. The idea of a common market was a popular idea ratified by referenda.

However a single state is not and never has been acceptable to the people of Europe. Whenever they’ve been asked about political unuion or fiscal union: member states have loudly said NO again and again.

The concept of the Euopean state is clearly illegitimate. The ultra-vires creation of the trappings of a European state is also illegitimate. It will fail - it is failing - because the people do not want it.

Your construct is wrong. That's not what Farage said.   Farage says Europeans wanted the Common Market as an expression of useful, common standards and good neighborliness, but not as an endorsement of a single European state.   Some have hijacked the very word 'European' as if it were an endorsement of a state that has never existed. He says that Europeans have increasingly, clandestinely and un democratically have been forced into something to which they didn't give their assent, and dramatically would not have given their assent if statists had been honest earlier, prior to the appearance of their draft constitution.

I agree with him and think he's potentially got a great future if he can survive.

Nigel has been stating the obvious; that the emperor has no clothes; yet most of the rest of Europe has their heads in the sand.

Interesting that he cited Oskar LaFontaine, the former socialist finance minister of Germany, who helped launch the euro, is not saying it’s a failure.

Thanks Lorianne. IMHO he and UKIP has already peaked, but the buzz is enormous, and the leftie sheets are all-out against him.

You ask and you shall receive (I’ve been recently following Nigel Farage’s speeches with glee). So here is an excellent “BEST OF NIGEL FARAGE” classic speeches in which he TRASHES the fascist socialists:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhGNoZfvRoA

This guy is the new Thatcher or the new Reagan. I wish we had someone here in the US as aggressively articulate for liberty as he is.

Another great one. At 1:34, notice who he’s flanked by (Schiff and Ron Paul). Now, that’s a collection of great minds.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZap5n3zGZ8

Another good sequence on EU totalitarianism (great to watch). Scary. Europe is hosed. I guess this is the future I worried about as a kid.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_profilepage&v=EHjeVb_JO8c

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RjUJy7kDOM

I’m grinning ear-to-ear watching him slam the UK’s Gordon Brown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evHrkZM33H8

Just imagine... IMAGINE if only we had a strong/logical/comical speaker like this here speaking the same words to Obama. Gotta love the British Parliamentary style hanging out dirty laundry for all to see with a touch of comedy and light-heartedness.

One might guess it was rigged by the socialists/EU fascists.

Which is why they will be careful never to ask that question again.

This is less a hijacking than a coup by some shadowy junta of bankers and unelected bureaucrats.

Of course it was an obvious first step, but the point is that the second step did not have to be taken. The common market could just simply have stopped at that point - an open doors agreement designed to encourage trade and understanding between nations. Nothing wrong with that.

To say it was an obvious first step is a bit like saying the Apollo 11 landings were an obvious first step towards colonising Mars. They could indeed have been that, IF the next steps had been taken - but none of them have. Mores the pity.
