Farage: EU Resembles Communism

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has given yet another storming interview to Fox News:

“Things are getting worse. We’ve now got Mario Monti, who is the unelected, appointed Prime Minister of Italy almost begging for his country to be bailed out because, as he says, he fears that parliament will derail the project. So what they’re actually saying now in Europe is we must not let democracy intervene with our great, grand project. We’re living in this sort of noddy land where frankly we’re not facing economic reality. The UK now trades with the EU at a massive, massive deficit. The idea that Mercedes would not sell their cars in Britain if we left the EU, or the idea that my favourite Spanish rioja producer would refuse to sell me a case of red wine, is ludicrous. Even though the UK is not part of the eurozone we are being constrained and constricted by being part of something that frankly begins to resemble communism in terms of its belief that the state and government creates jobs. It doesn’t, it destroys them.”

Guido hereby endorses Farage’s rioja policy…

        I was in one of the PIIGS countries. I drove on a lovely big road, all smooth and nice and new, and not really going anywhere at all. All on my own too.

        So you can’t say we don’t get anything in return.

        Yes the “president of Europe” was elected by who exactly… and the EU Commission is elected by who? It’s the Soviet Politburo system but with a little free market thrown into the mix. Britain needs to decide once and for all in or out!

        It’s an inevitable sign — if anyone has something incredibly stupid to say, and they know how moronic it is, they write it ‘Anonymous’ly. Also, because they are actually ashamed of the nonsense, they type it hurriedly and often make mistakes because of that: witness “Maybe he’s been that Rioja again.”

        “…Gideon would increase the import duty on them to make up for that”

        From the HMRC website…

        “I am importing a car from the EU, will I have to pay duty and VAT?

        All new cars are liable to VAT on entry to the UK but duty will only apply if imported from outside the EU. The rate of duty liable will depend if the car purchased is new, second hand or classified as a car of historic interest.”

        Your grasp of these matters is on par with crash test dummy Farage’s grasp of the law on EU migrant rights to welfare payments in the UK, as he so ably demonstrated on Question Time not that long ago…

    It is interesting to note that amongst those who did experience life under the Soviet regime they had this to day:

    “The most puzzling development in politics during the last decade is the apparent determination of Western European leaders to re-create the Soviet Union in Western Europe.” Mikhail Gorbachev, Soviet President 1985-1991. Date uncertain.

    Vladimir Bukovsky, in an interview with Paul Bellin, asked to explain his ‘parallel’ between the EU and the USSR replied:

    “I am referrring to structures, to certain ideologies being instilled, to the plans, the direction, the inevitable expansion, the obliteration of nations, which was the purpose of the Soviet Union. Most people do not understand this. They do not know it, but we do because we were raised in the Soviet Union where we had to study the Soviet ideology in school and at university. The ultimate purpose of the Soviet Union was to create a new historic entity, the Soviet people…..The same is true in the EU today. They are trying to create a new people.”

    Vladimir Bukovsky is also reported to have told Nigel Farage MEP: “I have seen your future and I don’t like it.”

    How long can it be once the EZ is in a full union before we are subjected to tractor output statements from EU radio? How well it will be broadcasting success whilst simultaneously the EU public wealth goes down the drain. How long then before it becomes and offence to listen to radio or TV broadcasts from the outside world because these will show the EU is really becoming ever poorer against competition from the rest of the world?

    I suspect the EU will hit the rails in a decade or so once the Far East moves in and takes away prestige car production from the EU creating mass unemployment in Germany. Already there is no EU manufacturer in the top ten What Car reliability tables for 2012 and the Far East makes many of the components used for EU car production. The Far East will take over other higher level production from Germany as their costs are a fraction of the EU’s and they are driving for quality. Combine this with the unworkable EZ and the only path for the EU is down into the poverty stricken socialist state the EU elite are so desperately keen to have.
