The EU does not care about what is best for Greece
As the situation for citizens becomes more desperate, the EU’s pure self-interest becomes ever clearer - UKIP Leader Nigel Farage in the Daily Express

• As my colleague Patrick O’Flynn recently pointed out in the Daily Express, the bullying of Greece by the EU has stepped up a notch.
Threats, scaremongering and fear is being put about to keep that country locked within the Euro straightjacket.
All those running the EU care about is their project.
They care not for the best wishes of the Greek people, but simply for sustaining the economic madhouse they themselves have created.
Locked inside the Euro, the Greek people have been long-suffering.
Quite simply, the European Union is quite happy to see Greece crucified as long as the shattered Euro manages to somehow stick together and carry on.
As I have said time and again, year after year, the Euro project wasn’t about economics.
It wasn’t about a more prosperous future for European citizens, but about a political project.
By tying countries together with the single currency, political integration was achievable at a more rapid rate by those who wanted to see a United States of Europe.
Just look where that has got us; with economic ruin and social unrest in Greece.
Lets get real. Greece is going to leave the Euro. It is simply a matter of how.
The charade of last minute deals and bailouts has to end. It simply isn’t sustainable.
That shouldn’t scare the Greek people. Just look at Iceland.
