An Enemy of Brussels, and Not Afraid to Say So

Who is this dude? I like him. Or at least what I've read about him and seen on YouTube. He seems solid. It's good to see people on the other side of the world fighting to achieve Liberty like us. It's worldwide!

Nigel Farage Anti European Union Message.

THE floor of the European Union’s cavernous and mostly vacant parliamentary chamber here is hardly known for its lively debates. At least not until Nigel Farage, the Brussels-bashing leader of Britain’s fastest growing political party, gets up to speak.

The vast majority of the European Parliament’s 754 members, as they process the torrent of rules and regulations that Europe bestows upon them, are not inclined to question why they are here. The pay and perks are generous for those elected to five-year terms in low-turnout elections throughout the European Union’s 27 member countries. And the mission — to extend the sweep of European federalism — is for most a shared one.

Nigel Farage - UK Independence Party MP. Absolute gold.

Surf through these videos, you will find other scathing UKIP MP speeches as well. Daniel Hannan & Godfrey Bloom come to mind. Hannan is also a Ron Paul admirer.

Hannan made a great speech where he said the ECB bailout of Greece was the same as taking a blood transfusion from your left arm and inserting it in your right arm with a leaking tube.

Who is this dude ?

Who is this dude ?

This dude is the closest to what the subjects of Her Majesty need to stop going downhill along with the rest of Europe (or its remnants, anyway).

He must feel very, very, very lonely other there, btw. His continued stand is very admirable if only for that, very much so, IMO.

I guess I've been so caught

I guess I've been so caught up in American politics that I forgot to check on our friends over there...

Anyway, he seems admirable. Plus, a great accent.

I bet he feels a bit like Ron Paul at times. But a real statesmen indeed!

I don't know much about him,

I don't know much about him, in fact. Though I did notice him at random a few years ago ... but that was before Ron Paul. ;)

I take it he is pretty close to this past "tradition" :

There are a lot of liberty

There are a lot of liberty fires spreading. I wonder if the net has anything to do with it or perhaps the net just makes viewing it accessible. Anyway, freedom is popular. Something big is happening. I feel it.
