“I’m just struck that if you look over the last 10 to 15 years, the clever governments have been buying gold, and the idiots have been selling gold. And those that buy gold don’t just buy paper, they make sure they’ve physically got the stuff.” - UKIP Leader Nigel Farage MEP.
• KWN| Today Nigel Farage made some absolutely fascinating statements to King World News regarding the Queen’s tour of Britain’s gold vault. Farage also spoke about the future price of gold and warned, “Everything from George Orwell’s 1984 is coming into being.”
Eric King: “The United States has just announced new monitoring devices that are going to be put on buses so the government can listen in to conversations. Are you running into that in Europe?”
Farage: “Yes, we are now talking about having spy-drones, unmanned planes that will go up and down our borders and see where we go and see what we do. Everything from George Orwell’s 1984 is coming into being.
In fact there is a city in the United Kingdom, Oxford, where they’ve actually put listening devices into taxis. I mean it’s just totally extraordinary. The liberties and essential freedoms are just eroding at such a rapid pace.
All the while we have benign governments so it may not pose that big a threat to us. But what happens one day if we get a bad government? I don’t think they will have to suspect that people are against the state because the devices they’ve got for listening in to what we say to each other are becoming so sophisticated.
Not to mention that we have government agencies, and certainly this happens in the States, where you have officials of the state that actually deliberately set out to try to entrap people into doing things that they will be able to arrest people in the future if they wish to, not just based on suspicion, but based on fact because they know what people think and say.”
Eric King: “Nigel, countries have been looking to repatriate their gold because of concerns their gold has been leased out in some sort of US/Britain Ponzi scheme, where they are using paper leasing tactics and moving the countries gold they are (supposed to be) storing out of those vaults. We just had the Queen tour the vault and it was fascinating the timing of that because there is this move to repatriate the gold, your thoughts on that?”
Farage: “Yes, that was a very symbolic move wasn’t it, the Queen doing that? To sort of feel that at least we’ve got some gold in this country. Yes, I’ve read and thought a lot and there are certainly several American commentators pointing out that there may well be, in terms of gold reserves and their reality, a huge fraud going on.
I don’t know. But I’m just struck that if you look over the last 10 to 15 years, the clever governments have been buying gold, and the idiots have been selling gold. And those that buy gold don’t just buy paper, they make sure they’ve physically got the stuff.”
Farage also added: “Well, for the moment Mario Draghi has told the world that everything is fine in Europe and there isn’t going to be a problem. For the moment the markets have backed off. But I don’t change one iota from my main view which is that at some point in the next few years the price of gold will be very substantially higher than it currently is.”
