UKIP's Farage on the Euro and ESM bailout vehicle

I'm not a supporter of UKIP (although I wouldn't entirely rule it out in the longer term), but Nigel Farage is one of the relatively few MEPs, along with Conservative Daniel Hannan, worth listening to. Here is Farage lambasting both Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council and Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission for their lack of credibility in the international markets for the latest moves to support the Euro to have much chance of bringing any more than very short term relief from the systemic problems inherent in the Euro. He also told Barroso, quite rightly, that he had made himself and all of us look like out-of-touch idiots by having the temerity to lecture others about 'democracy' when he is completely unelected himself! Anyway, watch Nigel Farage at work demolishing these small men, completely out of their depth to provide coherent strategies to even begin the job of rescuing the Eurozone from the mess it has got itself into and who seem intent on dragging the rest of us down with their doomed policies:



By the way, when is the European Union going to get its accounts in order - it has not done so these past SEVENTEEN YEARS! (Sources - here and here, but there are many more to choose from.) I repeat that - SEVENTEEN YEARS!
