“I think the biggest worry is that we get some kind of total breakdown of confidence in society... I genuinely fear that we are going to see very large scale confrontation in Southern Europe with an awful lot of people getting hurt or killed. That’s my biggest fear,” UKIP leader Nigel Farage told KWN.
• KWN - Nigel Farage spoke with King World News [14.11.2012] about his single greatest fear and the ongoing chaos which is taking place in Europe. But first, here is what Farage had to say about the increasing unrest in the eurozone: “Strikes, strikes, strikes. Lots and lots of strikes and demonstrations. Big strikes today, all across the Mediterranean, but they are now beginning to permeate northwards. In fact, there has been a very major strike in Belgium today.”
Nigel Farage continues:
“I was actually due to go to the European Parliament today but couldn’t get there. No planes, no trains. Ostensibly the strikes are about protests to government austerity. Strikes are now becoming an almost everyday feature of life in Europe.
“If people haven’t got hope, through their own directly elected representatives, then all they can do is take to the streets in increasing numbers, and these aren’t peaceful strikes....
“These aren’t just people walking down the road carrying banners. We’re talking here about tear gas, rubber bullets, violence, lots of injuries. This is very, very nasty stuff, and I see absolutely no prospect of it ending in the short-term.
“It doesn’t matter how many people are starving or homeless. That doesn’t matter. The ‘Great European Project’ must continue. That’s why I have absolutely no hesitation in saying that I don’t just disagree with the architects of this European project, I believe them to be fundamentally bad and dangerous people.
“In Greece, we talked before when it went through 50% youth unemployment. The last figures I saw were (a shocking) 57%. So we are now pushing up towards 60% (youth unemployment). What we are looking at is something, I’m afraid, that is very, very akin to the Weimar Republic and that breakdown which happened in Germany in the early 1930s that led to Hitler.
“I’m not saying Hitler is coming back to haunt Europe, but what I am saying is, isn’t it truly astonishing that we have Nazism on the rise in Southern Europe?”
Farage also added: “The feedback I get from across Europe, and I’m talking Poland, the Czech Republic, Greece, Spain, etc., the feedback is astonishing. I did a speech about Spain a few months ago, pointing out just the hopelessness of their position inside the eurozone and why they should leave.
That (speech) was translated into Spanish, and do you know one million people saw that on youtube within two weeks in Spain alone? So there is a huge hunger, there is a huge appetite for people out there. For people who are looking for alternatives, who are looking for boldness, and who are looking for courage. And sadly, they are not getting it from their own political class.”
Farage also spoke about his biggest fear: “I think the biggest worry is that we get some kind of total breakdown of confidence in society. Of trust, in not just the government, but the police force and the army and everything else. I genuinely fear that we are going to see very large scale confrontation in Southern Europe with an awful lot of people getting hurt or killed. That’s my biggest fear.” kingworldnews.com
