I love these guys. Seriously! They speak the truth. They don’t mince words. And they don’t take any shit. From anybody, whether it’s a former Prime Minister or some slimy Romanian leech. Rock on, boys! Wish we had some like these two legends here at home to shake up our lot!

Statement by the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
[2013/2819(RSP)]

Transcript

I represent a group that is against military action in Syria. We’re against it not because we’re pacifists. We’re against it not because we don’t care about the awful things going on there.

We’re against because we think there’s some pretty poor thinking going on.

This idea that somehow the rebels are the good guys and Assad are the bad guys really is over-simplifying a situation where of course we know that Al-Qaida have significant representation amongst those rebel groups.

And of course we’ve seen it all before. An endless series of military adventures over the course of the last 10 to fifteen years, one of which of course – notably, in Afghanistan – is still going on and is not achieving any of its original aims.

And I was worried when I heard the Americans telling us to begin with, it was about punishing Assad, and then within a week it was about regime change, a position that I know the noble Baroness herself supports.

We think firing a thousand criuse missiles in is likely to make an unstable situation even worse than it is now.

But of course, Baroness Ashton, in a sense, you’re sitting pretty, because as the highest paid female politician in the world, luckily, you got a non-job. Because the EU, thank goodness, hasn’t yet got a foreign policy, and as a result of that what we saw two weeks ago in the House of Commons was a nation state democracy standing up and saying something.

And as a direct result of that vote in the House of Commons we have not gone to war in Syria, we have entered a period of negotiations, and Assad has a chance to prove to all of us whether he is a good man or a bad man.

I don’t know how this will play out, but at least, Mr Verhofstadt, there is a chance of peace. And I know that you represent the kind of political class that believe that global influence can only be achieved through bombing. Well luckily, unlike extrem EU nationalists like yourself, British democracy has proved that through nation state parliaments we’ve actually made people re-think.

Mr Chairman, I have to say, as somebody that has been here now for 14 years it’s very ironic that the view that I represent was called extreme but you can see the extreme militarists now. Thank you.

George Galloway British member of parliament speaks the truth about the events in Syria, “A little knowledge can be very dangerous”.

Sweet!

WordPress just suddenly published this, as if by wizardry… but, in quick retrospect I realized that there’s really not much more to say that they haven’t. Suffice to say that I don’t want a war there. Period. All the “reasons” spouted off on this side of the pond are either very likely to be or definitely are BS and it’s the most loathsome war-mongering vileness that has been seen in a very long time.

Sigh.

Peace.

As I have mentioned previously at High Strangeness, I would hope that if there is any common sense left within the hearts and minds of people in the United Kingdom, well, then they should, by all means and at all costs, elect this man as their next Prime Minister. That would truly be a Good Thing.

As readers will know, I do not harbor much love for politicians, but in Mr. Farage’s case I can make an exception. He strikes me not as a politician, but rather more as a member of that species I had thought to be extinct… the Statesman.

Indeed after watching many videos of his speeches before the most definitely evil European Parliament, I have never heard anything that was not wholly true, not wholly insightful. That’s pretty good. And… I just love how he is not afraid in the least to put these pompous bastards in their place and do so quite strongly.

Bravo, Sir!

I like this video. It is very well done. As described above it is a very well-chosen collection of speeches… all put together in such a way as to tell a good chunk of the story of the horrendous failures of the European Union as not only a ruling globalist entity but also even as a concept.

Quite remarkable is the consistency of Farage’s statements and position over the years. If you were just listening to the audio you might just think it was all one speech. Try it! That is really most excellent, don’t you think?

Perhaps there is hope for Europe. Perhaps not. Several shots through the years show the powers that be in the room talking amongst themselves and laughing, probably at Nigel. Reminiscent of the treatment afforded Arnie Gundersen as he attempted to set the NRC straight regarding their failures.

The people will ultimately have the last word.

We can only hope it comes in time.
