Best video ever: Nigel Farage gets ridiculed at EU


5:12 pm - December 5th 2012

Nigel Farage loves posting videos of him delivering fiery speeches about how the EU is wasting money.

But last week, Guy Verhofstadt MEP delivered an excellent riposte, blasting Farage for taking money from the very institution he criticises.

Among the best bit is watching Farage pull faces as he squirms and laughs nervously in response.

I did enjoy watching that.

Savaged by the ex-Prime Minister of Belgium – he wont like that

2. Jim Jepps

” Savaged by the ex-Prime Minister of Belgium – he wont like that”

With the nickname of ‘ Baby Thatcher ‘. The revolting Guy Verhofstadt is the single best argument against the EU.

What’s wrong with collecting a wage for a post you’re elected to? He has just as much as a mandate as the chap speaking. I mean, Sinn Fein aren’t on too many Parliamentary Committees…

I wish the clip was shown to the BBC, then the fact this chap (and many others in the EP) is calling for a ‘federal union’ (and all that comes with it) could be exposed (1:30 onwards). That’s the real scandal in this clip; a largely unaccountable elite deciding whether to repatriate sovereign powers to the EU.

At 0:46 he does a ‘bitch please’ face

7. Chaise Guevara

They only let him stay in the parliament because he’s got a cat.

Farage is an embarrassing tit.

Gosh! So it’s not only the Tories that are getting rattled about the advance of UKIP? The left must be really desperate to put this federalist lunatic up as a counter to Nigel Farage. Nigel Farage was elected as an MEP and has as much right to his salary and allowances as anyone else in the EP. Verhofstadt’s criticism is that Farage didn’t turn up to some committee meetings. So what? Those committees are purely talking shops and a complete waste of time. Farage’s time is better spent doing what his constituency sent him there to do, i.e. to show the EP up for the farce that it is. Methinks he makes a fair job of it, as do Paul Nuttall, Roger Helmer and the rest of the UKIP members.

10. Sean O'Hare

I look forward to Nigel’s response. There will be one never fear!

11. Robin Levett

@Chris #5:

Erm; the clip is of elected MEPs. Accountable to their electorates. Unlike those who actually do make the decisions in the EU, the Council of Ministers, who, in the UK case, are accountable only to Dave.

@ 9 Sean

“The left must be really desperate to put this federalist lunatic up as a counter to Nigel Farage.”

Right, because as we all know, Farage has Europe shaking in its boots.

At a guess, this is mainly about how popular you are if you’re a member of an organisation who spends all your time decrying it, while having a tendency for arrogant lies.

“Right, because as we all know, Farage has Europe shaking in its boots.”

If Farage can stand there for years warning of a major economic crisis and then when it comes about,countrys falling to bits and riots left right and center, those at the top dont even care enough for the people or there response to blink, I doubt anything would make them “shake int here boots”

Super state here we come, people get what they deserve, Farage should just retire and enjoy the rest of his days, instead of trying to defend a bunch of hopeless wankers.

The leftist scum will never be happy, no matter how much they destroy or control they have, the justice for the things you do is afterall having to be the person you are.

@ Blah

I was about to reply to you properly, then I noticed that you’re one of those people who like to describe the other half of the planet as “[hated demographic] scum”. So now I’m assuming you’re just a mirror image of Sally.

Let me know if you stop being powered entirely by hate.

so, bobby sands was wrong to be elected to a government he wanted to destroy too?

“I was about to reply to you properly, then I noticed that you’re one of those people who like to describe the other half of the planet as “[hated demographic] scum”. So now I’m assuming you’re just a mirror image of Sally.”

I would not call those who seek to undermine democracy and do not care for the human suffering they cause “the other half of the planet” I note sunny has never quoted Farages speaches warning of the crisis here, no, we just get the occassional bnp smear attempts and laughable efforts to discredit such as these, what are those, who have the intent to create a european super state without the consent of the people, if not scum?

Europe has it’s failings, most political institutions do. But Farage is plainly an idiot to lay himself open to such an obvious home goal. Neither intelligent nor principled.

Interesting, but how can anyone make a decision based on one mans rant with no response from Nigel Farage, I find it seriously amusing that you should use this man in some poor attempt to tarnish Nigel, considering that Guy Verhofstadt when in power sold of government property in his own country to his friends and then rented them back at an over rated cost. I think you will need to try a lot harder to discredit a man who definitely talks more common sensed than common purpose. Maybe you should watch a few more of Guy Verhofstadt’s youtube speeches and find out what he actually thinks of Britain before using him to try and discredit others.

21. Tory BStard

The places where UKIP came second were also loon fringes with parties like “9/11 Was An Inside Job Party” and English Democrats.

22. Richard Carey

I notice the second part of the speech, when the politico calls for a federal Europe, with its own ability to raise taxes, i.e. without recourse to member states, is totally ignored by the OP.

I’m still waiting for a pro-EU person in this country to actually make a case for a federal Europe, which has always been the aim, which is made by the politico in this clip and was made by Merkel recently. Anyone want to do that, or are you all going to stick with the ‘well, of course it needs some reform, but …’ line that is favoured this side of the Channel?

With regards the attack on Farage, if that bloke thinks Farage’s salary is the biggest waste of money in the EU’s budget, he’s crazy.

“Could I suggest you learn english so that your readers can have SOME hope of understanding what you are on about?”

Leftist scum and diversion tactics, comes naturally to you doesent it, but just incase you are actually to stupid:

“I would not call those who seek to undermine democracy and do not care for the human suffering they cause “the other half of the planet”

I do not consider those who undermine democracy in europe and show little care for those they hurt in the process a big enough group to be termed “half the planet”.

“I note sunny has never quoted Farages speaches warning of the crisis here, no, we just get the occassional bnp smear attempts and laughable efforts to discredit such as these”

I have noticed sunny has never bought the correct predictions and observations of Farage to the readers of this sites attention, because sunny, like the europion union and the lunatic left prefer to ignore economics and reality while calling any one who does not “loon fringes”

Which is a dam shame, because its the people of europe who are doing nothing more than living there lives who pay the price, whilst those playing pathetic political games attempt to smear any one ” not on there side ”

“what are those, who have the intent to create a european super state without the consent of the people, if not scum?”

After all, what are those who intend to create a europion super state, those who openely call for it, without the consent and real desire of the people, if not scum? And more amusingly what are those who denie that is whats even happening…mentally ill lunatics?

Well there we go chap, theres a few gramma mistakes in there, enough for your cracked little mind to latch onto and feel justified in avoiding the content.

The Belgian Guy Verhofstadt is making a very good point. Electing anti euro MEPs results in the UK being poorly represented in this case on the Fisheries Committee. The answer don’t vote UKIP.

@ 16 Blah

“what are those, who have the intent to create a european super state without the consent of the people, if not scum?”

Ha ha! Nice goalpost-shifting. One minute it was “leftists” you were calling scum, now it’s people who “have the intent to create a european super state without the consent of the people”. So you’ve moved from a massive portion of the planet to a small and probably fictional group of people in an attempt to defend the indefensible.

Could someone provide a left/right “positions-to-take” chart please? It’s all becoming much too confusing.

We know, for example, that:

a) The EU is a Bad Thing, because it entrenches right-wing neo-liberal dogma. Further integration will entrench it further.

b) However, we also know that opponents of the EU, and/or further integration, are right-wing racists, homophobes etc.

It would be good, in order to be either properly left or right, to have the official guidelines clarified. Perhaps on a tea-towel?

“Ha ha! Nice goalpost-shifting. One minute it was “leftists” you were calling scum, now it’s people who “have the intent to create a european super state without the consent of the people”

The left who support it are scum yes.

“So you’ve moved from a massive portion of the planet to a small and probably fictional group of people in an attempt to defend the indefensible.”

“And more amusingly what are those who denie that is whats even happening…mentally ill lunatics?”

But no, you are right, there is no plan for a superstate, never has been never will be.

@ 26 Jack C

This may sound crazy, but why don’t we try judging each issue on its merits, rather than working out which side of a fault-line it falls on and then supporting/opposing it based on our team colours?

29. Chaise Guevara

@ 27 Blah

Wipe the spittle off your monitor.

We are ridiculously far from a superstate, whatever rabid misanthropes may convince themselves so they can get enjoyably outraged, and I notice you’ve changed your hate-group YET AGAIN: you’ve dropped the “against the consent of the people” bit.

Farage’s statements in the European parliament are amusing lets face it. His statement about Van Rompuy being a damp rag with the appearance of low paid bank clerk was about right. His similar attacks on Barosso, the epitome of a lot that is wrong with Europe today, are similarily amusing. However, politicians across the board, need to start acting like accountable humans. (I might be asking too much) behaviour like this on both sides is hardly necessary and does nothing to solve problems. We saw yesterday George Osbourne twittering on, pushing plans that were no where near effective or sweeping enough to cause real change (no matter which side of the debate your on), and then we saw Ed Balls, who I can only guess was drunk, wobble and fumble his way through a confused response. The worry statistic is that there are really very few people in politics nowadays with any ability to change the situation. In many ways I think the institutions have crushed politicians ability to be different.

UKIP does not, to my mind, yet represent a serious vote. They have become a protest vote against a great deal of what is going on in the country, and Europe. Despite what slightly bonkers people such as Sunny say, a lot of people, over half of the population I would think, are worried about things like immigration, the cost of the EU, and education standards. So its only natural that UKIP pick up votes.

Quite frankly, I don’t think this is an amusing video, or a satisfaction to watch, but not for any specific MEP reasons, but because I dispare that we are paying for thousands of people to run around Brussels, talk s**t like this, and go on providing absolutely no solution to the problems. If closer union is needed then all countries should vote on whether they join a system that mirrors the states of America. If not, then the EU should be dismantled or renegotiated to simply become a trading union.

I fear that the situation with countries like Greece could blow up. Germany effectively owns Greece, and it is very much like the situation Germany was in after the WWI. The treaty of Versailles forced Germany to repay, and many believe that the actions of the other countries in Europe by forcing war reparations caused the massive hyper inflation, as well as enabled the rise of Hitler. Greece is a tinder box, don’t push too far.

@29. Chaise Guevara

Chaise, I think the problem is not that we ‘have’ a superstate, so much as people seem to be blindly marching towards one. Given the full extent of proposed EU regulation that has been proposed, Brussels would control all banking in the EU, they would control all food supply and prices, they would control all monetary policy, they would control all law making, and would dictate trade regulation. The problem is that they are seeking to apply a one size fits all solution to 27 member states that are radically different. Romania is nothing like Germany is nothing like Portugal is nothing like Greece. Some countries will come off well, others will be told what to do by Euro dictates, and they will have no power to determine their future. The people of Europe are simply too different to try and make them conform to one rule.

What Freeman said basically. You can be as passive as you like about it, accuse others of engaging in pleasure out rage, whatever, I do not know exactly what stage of the process it will take for you to catch on but thats your business.

As far as dropping against the consent of the people, not quite. History concerning the Eu attitude towards refundreums has not changed since I made my post, neither has the way they manipulate populations into situations.

By the way, its a bit odd you have not jumped on number 5 like a bat out of hell, he has after all called out the chronic lack of know how and ability to do how currently running the show, or are you more reluctant, considering you cant attack his gramma?

Chaise @29:
“We are ridiculously far from a superstate, whatever rabid misanthropes may convince themselves so they can get enjoyably outraged …”

Rightly or wrongly, we are moving towards a Federal Europe though (ie the “ever closer union” envisaged by the Treaty of Rome).

The Euro-crisis is bringing this to a head. Either the likes of Greece will have to leave, or there will have to be a much more centralised approach. It will no longer be possible for countries in the zone to do their own thing; experience says that they won’t follow the rules if this is allowed.

The UK, of course, is one step removed so the “threat” is much reduced.

The concern is that Federal Union will just happen, cos it has to (as per the Constitution).

Whether it is a good idea or not, or popular or not, isn’t being fully debated.

Actually Chaise Guevara, allow me to elaborate on why I call the left scum in this instance. You see if I have concerns about the eu, from its impact on the nation I am a part of to its own spending practices,the concern does not really matter, anything I voice against the eu gets me called “racist” by the left.

It matters not that I have many freinds from countrys and races other than mine, or that I have never had a racist thought in my life, to them I am “racist” which of course serves to end the debate, as a racist I am not worth listening to.

If you do not agree with them they want to shut you up and force the eu down your throat against your consent.

37. Chaise Guevara

@ 33 Jack C

“Bender.”

Nice. The point is that left and right are broad, poorly defined categories. Acting as if someone who is left/right on one issue ought to automatically be left/right on another issue is putting the cart before the horse. It doesn’t matter whether EU membership is left or right, that’s just a semantic argument. What matters is whether it’s a good idea.

@ 35 Jack C

“Rightly or wrongly, we are moving towards a Federal Europe”

It’s possible for the EU to become more federal without becoming a superstate. But if it were to do so, we’d have the ability to say no – probably by referendum, and if not then through our elected officials. As you note, we’re not exactly the most integrated member state as it is.

@ 34 Blah

“What Freeman said basically. You can be as passive as you like about it, accuse others of engaging in pleasure out rage, whatever, I do not know exactly what stage of the process it will take for you to catch on but thats your business.”

Well, it certainly won’t just be on your say-so.

“As far as dropping against the consent of the people, not quite. History concerning the Eu attitude towards refundreums has not changed since I made my post, neither has the way they manipulate populations into situations.”

If it happened, it would be handled by our democracy. Our democracy is admittedly imperfect, but it exists. If you want to improve our democracy, through electoral reform for example, then we’re probably on the same side. But that’s an issue that affects everything, so it seems selective and misleading to bring it up just for the EU. You would presumably claim that every government policy, including those you agree with, are against the consent of the people.

I have to say that I can’t recall hearing anyone called racist for being anti-EU. For being anti-immigration, yes, but not anti-EU. However, I’ll take your word for it that it’s happened to you.

So what we have is some lefties – presumably quite a small minority – making ludicrous and insulting accusations against eurosceptics. That should be condemned. But your apparent solution is to behave the same way towards the entire left, calling us “scum”. In other words, you’ve joined the ranks of those you despise. You’re making exactly the same kind of stupid and unwarranted generalisations as they do.

Chaise,
I’m making the same point you are, which means you may have missed my attempt at humour. You wouldn’t be the first.

“probably by referendum”

Now there’s a moot point if ever there was one. Referenda on closer union are rarely held, but are usually rejected (the first time). Results are then either “corrected” or ignored without any attempt to address what the result says.

You can see the results of this attitude throughout EU policy. Criticism is rejected as “anti-European”, leading to nightmares such as the CFP and the Euro.

I think we should be free to dislike politicians of all races, creeds, etc etc.

“Well, it certainly won’t just be on your say-so.”

What shall not just be on my say so? the stage of the process you catch on to the eu turning into a superstate? It is interesting you should say that, because appareantly it is on your say so that its not, appareantly until you decide so, and until then any one who believes otherwise is of course a ” rabid misanthrope”…

“If it happened, it would be handled by our democracy. Our democracy is admittedly imperfect, but it exists. If you want to improve our democracy, through electoral reform for example, then we’re probably on the same side. But that’s an issue that affects everything, so it seems selective and misleading to bring it up just for the EU. You would presumably claim that every government policy, including those you agree with, are against the consent of the people”

What? Our democracy that can not even have a meaningful debate about if the eu is good for britain or not? Our democracy that is informed from nothing other than political spin and impressions formed by those seeking to reach there and only there objectives? Jesus man, the left who very much want to be in the eu at all costs cant even answer the following question directly on a blog:

“I’m still waiting for a pro-EU person in this country to actually make a case for a federal Europe, which has always been the aim, which is made by the politico in this clip and was made by Merkel recently. Anyone want to do that, or are you all going to stick with the ‘well, of course it needs some reform, but …’ line that is favoured this side of the Channel?”

Democracy is as strong as the quality of the infomation people use to direct there free will.

“Comment 5 of the autumn statement thread? Could you clarify how you think it relates to this?”

Nothing as such, just curious as you have seemed quite passinate on the issue in the past.

“So what we have is some lefties – presumably quite a small minority – making ludicrous and insulting accusations against eurosceptics.”

What? “xenophobia” “little englander” “racist” “antieuropean” are the main tools of the majority of the left to deflect eu critisism,and anti-immigration can have absolutly nothing to do with racism.

I’ve been saying this about UKIP and Europhobes for years. If you’re that committed to ending the EU, then why do you continue to take their money.

Say what you like about Sinn Fein but at least they have to courage of their convictions to abstain from Westminster.

@ 40 Jack C

“I’m making the same point you are, which means you may have missed my attempt at humour. You wouldn’t be the first.”

Ah, defective satire-detection on my part. Apologies.

“Now there’s a moot point if ever there was one. Referenda on closer union are rarely held, but are usually rejected (the first time). Results are then either “corrected” or ignored without any attempt to address what the result says.”

If we’re going to use referenda (I’m generally not a fan, but can see the point for constitutional stuff), then we need existing rules on what we use them for, and how they’re carried out. We also need rules saying what parliament can’t do without a referendum. Preferably these rules should be drawn up when there isn’t a specific referendum on the horizon. We should also address ancillary things. Otherwise the whole thing inevitably falls prey to the sort of thing you’re describing. Remember AV? It probably would have failed anyway, but it certainly wasn’t helped by the fact that the No campaign was allowed to use a platform based on blatant lies.

“You can see the results of this attitude throughout EU policy. Criticism is rejected as “anti-European”, leading to nightmares such as the CFP and the Euro.”

Sure, but presumably we’re not going to become The EU State of Airstrip One just because the EU tells us to, even if wants that. We could opt out (even if the rules said otherwise), and that would be largely steered by the UK’s politics, where “EU” is a dirtier word than “anti-EU”.

“I think we should be free to dislike politicians of all races, creeds, etc etc.”

Well, yes, and I believe we are.

“What shall not just be on my say so? the stage of the process you catch on to the eu turning into a superstate?”

I’m not going to believe something that sounds false just because you say it’s true, is what I’m saying.

“It is interesting you should say that, because appareantly it is on your say so that its not, appareantly until you decide so”

Nope – same rules apply both ways. I don’t expect YOU to change your view of the facts just on MY say-so either.

“until then any one who believes otherwise is of course a ” rabid misanthrope”…”

Wrong! People who go around screaming “scum!” at large groups of people are rabid misanthropes. The same is true of some pro-EU lefties.

Remember, you’re the one who likes to make mass generalisations, not me.

“What? Our democracy that can not even have a meaningful debate about if the eu is good for britain or not?”

I don’t know what this means. Democracy is an abstract concept and has no mouth with which to debate. Within our democracy, however, people debate the EU all the time. We’re doing it right now. I think this is just another variation on that thing where people claim you “can’t talk about immigration”.

“Our democracy that is informed from nothing other than political spin and impressions formed by those seeking to reach there and only there objectives?”

Exaggeration, but I’ve said I agree it could use improving. My point was that it’s misleading to raise this issue only when you don’t like the outcome.

“I’m still waiting for a pro-EU person in this country to actually make a case for a federal Europe, which has always been the aim, which is made by the politico in this clip and was made by Merkel recently. Anyone want to do that, or are you all going to stick with the ‘well, of course it needs some reform, but …’ line that is favoured this side of the Channel?”

The last time we voted on the EU, the “Yes” side included reform. It was the “No” side who voted against reform – admittedly as part of a larger package. I myself am unsure if a more centralised Europe is a good idea without that reform. I’m quite happy to say that reform should come first.

“Nothing as such, just curious as you have seemed quite passinate on the issue in the past.”

TBH I thought that comment was a bit of a rant, and ignored it. But it still seems like a total non-sequitur to bring it up here.

Even if the majority of the “left” (a term you seem to use interchangeably with “pro-EU” for some reason) DO go around calling eurosceptics racist, you’re just as bad for attacking all lefties in the same way. I have not called you racist, but you have called me scum. The thing you are whinging about is something you are more guilty of than most.

Lol. The familiar snobbery from the posh left who fear and despise the working class they like to claim to represent.

@43,
“Say what you like about Sinn Fein but at least they have to courage of their convictions to abstain from Westminster”.

A bit of an error on your part.

a) Sinn Fein draw salaries and allowances from Westminster whilst abstaining, and
b) They’re Eurosceptic.

Anyway, to get back to the OP, no this isn’t the best video ever. Unless you’re seriously tribal.

51. Chaise Guevara

@ 48 White Trash

“Lol. The familiar snobbery from the posh left who fear and despise the working class they like to claim to represent.”

Or perhaps merely a catty remark directed at someone who just called the speaker “scum”?

Why are you attacking the retort, but not the initial insult?

“I’m not going to believe something that sounds false just because you say it’s true, is what I’m saying.”

Perhaps if you could state your position without having to attack those on the oppsing end as “rabid misanthropes” your position would be built on tougher ground.

“Nope – same rules apply both ways. I don’t expect YOU to change your view of the facts just on MY say-so either.
Wrong! People who go around screaming “scum!” at large groups of people are rabid misanthropes. The same is true of some pro-EU lefties.”

The difference being I do not lie, smear, and can infact look at the situation and how it is progressing, sit down and talk about that, the majority of the left however lie, smear and can not for the life of them face the situation as is. In my book that amounts to scum.

“I don’t know what this means. Democracy is an abstract concept and has no mouth with which to debate. Within our democracy, however, people debate the EU all the time. We’re doing it right now. I think this is just another variation on that thing where people claim you “can’t talk about immigration”

It has no mouth with which to debate, yet it does have political partys with agendas who do there upmost to shape public perception for a vote instead of for the facts. If an eu refurendum ever comes to pass the debate is going to be of a terrible quality.

“Exaggeration, but I’ve said I agree it could use improving. My point was that it’s misleading to raise this issue only when you don’t like the outcome.”

Can you tell me about the times I have not raised this issue because I did like the outcome?

“The last time we voted on the EU, the “Yes” side included reform. It was the “No” side who voted against reform – admittedly as part of a larger package. I myself am unsure if a more centralised Europe is a good idea without that reform. I’m quite happy to say that reform should come first”

Excelent, how do you feel about not having a chance in hell of that reform taking place?

“TBH I thought that comment was a bit of a rant, and ignored it. But it still seems like a total non-sequitur to bring it up here.”

You are rather inflexible arent you, gramma would be the last time we talked of the issue, you always seemed so willing to talk at length about it with me and shy away when another brings it up, that is all.

“So you’ve just added three terms to the list. You really like shifting the goal-posts, don’t you? You also like dodging the point.”

Again you are being very inflexible, wow I added “three” terms to the list, I have totally moved “the goal posts” of course those terms arent used in the same light for the same effect by the left and are in now way like eachother.

“Even if the majority of the “left” (a term you seem to use interchangeably with “pro-EU” for some reason) DO go around calling eurosceptics racist, you’re just as bad for attacking all lefties in the same way. I have not called you racist, but you have called me scum. The thing you are whinging about is something you are more guilty of than most.”

Yea, I understand that. I appologize for calling you scum. I am tired of the political system, I am tired of reading threads without substance attack people like Farage who was the only person stood in parliment doing his god dam job warning of what was coming, while the rest stood around and laughed, and the gang of wanabes stood on the sidelines doing there best to discredit anyone who does not agree with them.

Governing peoples lives is a serious issue and that position is being abused by jokers and individuals who want to feel like they are related to “power”

53. Man on Clapham Omnibus

I didnt find this amusing at all.
There are serious questions to be had in relation to the EU,particularly in its attempt to create a superstate, the only logical solution to the Euro, which in my view should be opposed.
While people may like to rebuke UKIP I would suggest their presence does keep the issue of Europe on the front burner which is exactly where it should be. There are legitimate questions to be asked and ad hominem attacks aren’t in whatever form a worthy response IMO.

Have we already forgotten the EU imposed technocrats when people failed to ‘vote correctly’ to protect German banks’ interests in democratic elections?
You would think Liberals would be a bit leery of supporting the EU after that little flight from democratic principles, but it appears tribalism trumps all.

@Jack C #40:

Referenda on closer union are rarely held, but are usually rejected (the first time). Results are then either “corrected” or ignored without any attempt to address what the result says.

Name one; and no, the Irish one doesn’t count for a number of reasons.

Why would Farage want to help the EU, and help it get ‘own resources’? Verhofstadt is creepy.

57. Chaise Guevara

@ Blah

“Perhaps if you could state your position without having to attack those on the oppsing end as “rabid misanthropes” your position would be built on tougher ground.”

And perhaps if you could do the same without calling people “scum” you’d enjoy the same benefits. We wouldn’t be having this row if you’d managed that.

“The difference being I do not lie, smear, and can infact look at the situation and how it is progressing, sit down and talk about that, the majority of the left however lie, smear and can not for the life of them face the situation as is. In my book that amounts to scum.”

You do smear, we’ve been talking about it for several posts. I don’t think that the majority of the left do this any more than the right.

“It has no mouth with which to debate, yet it does have political partys with agendas who do there upmost to shape public perception for a vote instead of for the facts. If an eu refurendum ever comes to pass the debate is going to be of a terrible quality.”

Yeah, true, but this doesn’t amount to us not being able to have a debate on the issue. One of our political parties is defined by its eurosceptic stance.

“Can you tell me about the times I have not raised this issue because I did like the outcome?”

I can’t prove a negative. If you do often say that decisions you approve of are not done with the consent of the public, I’m sure you’ll have no problem linking to a few examples.

“Excelent, how do you feel about not having a chance in hell of that reform taking place?”

Were that true, I would be unhappy about it, obviously.

“You are rather inflexible arent you, gramma would be the last time we talked of the issue, you always seemed so willing to talk at length about it with me and shy away when another brings it up, that is all.”

What issue? The EU? Political conflict of interest? You’re still not making it clear what you’re on about. Although I really doubt you’re going to glean anything interesting from my failure to reply to a single comment, given I’ve already told you why I didn’t reply.

I don’t recall offhand a discussion with you about grammar. Do you have a link? I try not to attack people over things like that because it’s an ad hom. So without seeing the alleged conversation I don’t know whether:

1) I made an honest comment that you were hard to understand.
2) I criticised your grammar after you went around making similar insults against me or others, which would rather be asking for it.
3) I was just being a dick that day and had a go at your grammar for no reason.
4) Something else.

“Again you are being very inflexible, wow I added “three” terms to the list, I have totally moved “the goal posts” of course those terms arent used in the same light for the same effect by the left and are in now way like eachother.”

None of the three terms you added mean the same thing as “racist”, none of them are as offensive, and all of them would be accurate descriptions of SOME eurosceptics.

“Yea, I understand that. I appologize for calling you scum.”

OK, cool. That was my main issue really. And yes, if you like Farage I can see why this attack, which is indeed low on content, would annoy you.

58. Richard Carey

I’m still waiting for someone to stand up for Guy Verhofstadt’s position, and make the case for a federal union / United States of Europe. Anyone? Sunny?

This has always been the goal of the ‘Project’.

@32. Chaise Guevara

No, I am not going to reference and explain every single point. I simply don’t have the time. However, here are a few excerts.

“Banking Union”
http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/1f8cacda-f2b0-11e1-8577-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2EHUfUwqL

Barroso has also pushed for this in Parliamentary speeches.

Food regulation is already an EU issue. See: EC/178/2002. This regulation has by the admission of the EU increased food prices (all regulation does, and the vast majority of it is things like ‘you shall not sell a carrot that is less than 6 inches’, etc) http://ec.europa.eu/economy_finance/publications/publication15234_en.pdf

The ECB already effectively does, and they have the power to take over EU countries monetary policy. The IMF even warned that the ECB is the only player that has the power to scare the market. Just look at what they have done in Greece.

EU law is already supreme in EU states, and the ECJ has the ability to overrule national courts. What is worrying is that the ECJ judges are far less experienced than our own British judges, yet they are able to overrule them. This supremacy takes effect even if a decision by the ECJ were to be ‘illegal’ in the member state. This has been the case since the Costa v ENEL case in the 60′s.

In relation to trade and trading law. Rome Convention, Brussels Reg, and a raft of other regulations too numerous to list relating to consumer laws, transport laws, goods, and services, etc, etc, etc.

@55:
Netherlands rejecting the Constitution?

Will that do as “one”, or are there reasons why that doesn’t count?

The first thing this guy says is that paying the salary of an MEP who has been elected in the normal way is a waste of money. Sounds like he’s having a go at the EU.

I”ll keep watching and look for the bit where he savages Farage.

Now he’s claiming MEPs are able to claim their salary without actually turning up. Is this guy some sort of Eurosceptic nutter?

Gonna keep listening…

He wants the people of Britain to know how one of their MEPs “is in fact cheating your own citizens here” and argues “it has to finish”, a view shared by plenty of far right eurosceptic nutters.

I hope Ed resists pressure to offer a referendum on leaving the EU but if we do have a vote then this video will be a great bit of ammunition for the Little Britain brigade.

64. Poor Italian without democracy

In my humble opinion, is Guy Verhofstadt being ridiculed.
He is using one of the most boorish and poor language i’ve ever heard. He scream against Mr Farage, ranting about the salary of Mr Farage, but the only thing that appear clear is that they all don’t know where to steal money to the european people any more. In Italy we are losing every thing because of this disastrous european politics, and Farage is the only one who deserve the salary in that parlament

Farage is a principled politician and although some of the supporters of UKIP, are the hang um and kick out the immigrants golf club types,they have important points to make about a federal europe. Also he is far more likeable than “the revolting Guy Verhofstadt” and many of his neo thatcherite continental clones.

I agree with cylux, British lefties have been conned by the adage my enemies enemy if my friend. Sorry many of these euro technocrats would love to get rid of the NHS, the welfare state and make the EEC a playground for tax dodgers.
Wilson had faults, not as many as the right wing press have made out, but he was always wary of the EEC.

The left who support it are scum yes.
Blah as a Tory supporter you must also be scum
Wasn’t Heath, Thatcher and Major the PM’s who have federated us to the EEC. The rhetoric of Thatcher didn’t match her actions.
Wilson and Callaghan were very luke warm to the EEC.
Balir and Brown didn’t enter the Euro.

68. Ivan Monckton

Mr Blah

Bad “gramma” makes for amusing reading, but honestly, your primary school spelling makes your postings difficult to make head or tail of….but then, maybe that’s just because they are rabid ramblings.

Leftist Scum

PS Does anybody else use the word “leftist” instead of “left wing” apart from right wing bloggers?

@White Trash/Daily Mail Reading Turd:
If working class people are like you FUCK THEM

They are worthless scum.

“And perhaps if you could do the same without calling people “scum” you’d enjoy the same benefits. We wouldn’t be having this row if you’d managed that.”

Aye.

“You do smear, we’ve been talking about it for several posts. I don’t think that the majority of the left do this any more than the right.”

I do not need to undermine the lefts reputation, but it was wrong of me to call every single individual of the left scum.

“Yeah, true, but this doesn’t amount to us not being able to have a debate on the issue. One of our political parties is defined by its eurosceptic stance.”

And they are contantly attacked and smeared, there points puished side and ignored.

“I can’t prove a negative. If you do often say that decisions you approve of are not done with the consent of the public, I’m sure you’ll have no problem linking to a few examples”

But I do not hence I dont understand your:

“My point was that it’s misleading to raise this issue only when you don’t like the outcome”

“Were that true, I would be unhappy about it, obviously.”

To date it has been true, it is nice to see you have hope for change at least.

“What issue? The EU? Political conflict of interest? You’re still not making it clear what you’re on about.”

The issue of polticians having no qualifcations or expereince in the feild they are attempting to govern.

“None of the three terms you added mean the same thing as “racist”, none of them are as offensive, and all of them would be accurate descriptions of SOME eurosceptics. ”

If they are as offensive or mean the exact same thing does not matter, neither does it matter that some eurospecptics hold true to the description, what matters is the light they are used in, “xenophobia” “little englander” “racist” “antieuropean” are used by eu fanatics to deflect critisim of the eu from anyone in every area. the most serious area I have seen to date was the euro, that worked out well didt it.

“OK, cool. That was my main issue really. And yes, if you like Farage I can see why this attack, which is indeed low on content, would annoy you.”

I dont “like” farage, I dont know or personalize him in anyway, the fact remains farage was in parliment warning of the euro crisis until he was blue in the face. He was laughed at, even when it came about he was laughed at and ignored.

Its meant to be a parliment who serve the best interests of the people,it is clear they are only out to serve there own interests,when the only guy who knows what he is on about there is the one who wants to close the place down, while the rest have not got a clue or dont care enough, and all “political bloggers” can do with this guy is cheap hits like this and try to connect him to the bnp,its fucking pathetic.

71. Chaise Guevara

@ 69 Blah

“I do not need to undermine the lefts reputation, but it was wrong of me to call every single individual of the left scum.”

We’re cool on that one.

“And they are contantly attacked and smeared, there points puished side and ignored.”

I suspect they’re attacked and smeared less than the two and a half big parties, just because power attracts enemies. They’re ignored for the same reason. UKIP get more coverage than the Greens and less hate than the BNP, and that’s quite right in both cases. It’s not a conspiracy.

“But I do not hence I dont understand your:

“My point was that it’s misleading to raise this issue only when you don’t like the outcome””

I think we might be talking past each other here. I’m saying that, if you do complain about the undemocratic nature of political decisions even when you agree with the decision, you should be able to provide examples. If you don’t, it seems like you’re selectively only complaining about poor democracy when it suits you.

“To date it has been true, it is nice to see you have hope for change at least.”

I do. For a start, if the EU does start going federalist like you suspect, there would be more attention on it. You might be labouring under the misapprehension that I think the EU is awesome. I don’t. I think it’s fucked up. But I think an improved EU would be better than no EU.

“The issue of polticians having no qualifcations or expereince in the feild they are attempting to govern.”

Oh, ok, I remember this one. I do sympathise with you on this, even if I disagree with your conclusions.

“If they are as offensive or mean the exact same thing does not matter, neither does it matter that some eurospecptics hold true to the description, what matters is the light they are used in, “xenophobia” “little englander” “racist” “antieuropean” are used by eu fanatics to deflect critisim of the eu from anyone in every area. the most serious area I have seen to date was the euro, that worked out well didt it.”

Used by EU fanatics, sure. But not by most people who support the EU, or most people on the left. I think this is what they call “availability heuristic”. In non-smart-arse terms, that means that you’ve been arguing a lot with pro-EU dickheads, and that’s given you the impression that most pro-EU people are dickheads, because that’s what you’re used to. I don’t believe that’s the case, although I’m aware that the dickheads exist.

I had a similar experience on abortion, getting the impression that most pro-lifers were religious lunatics and most pro-choicers were insane obsessive feminists. I later worked out that wasn’t true, from talking to people on both sides and seeing how reasonable they were about it.

“I dont “like” farage, I dont know or personalize him in anyway, the fact remains farage was in parliment warning of the euro crisis until he was blue in the face. He was laughed at, even when it came about he was laughed at and ignored.”

OK, but did Farage warn of that based on careful and sober assessment of the issue, or was he just spouting loads of anti-EU stuff, and one of those things by fluke turned out to be true? In other words, was he clever or was he lucky? I have to say that my experience of the man leads me to believe the former.

If you say enough things, eventually one will turn out to be true, just like if you keep predicting which number will come up on a dice, you’ll eventually guess right out of luck. A stopped clock is right twice a day, and so on. Farage has shown that he’ll flat-out lie to get a little applause; I don’t trust his honesty or his judgement.

“Its meant to be a parliment who serve the best interests of the people,it is clear they are only out to serve there own interests”

Well, yeah. Like all governments. I’ve not heard of a way to stop this happening, so I’m not sure what we’re meant to do about it.

“all “political bloggers” can do with this guy is cheap hits like this and try to connect him to the bnp,its fucking pathetic.”

That’s not all political bloggers. Again, don’t generalise. Sunny loves his cheap hits, and I repeatedly complain about it. And trying to conflate UKIP and the BNP is pathetic, you’re right. It’s disgusting, in fact. I don’t like UKIP but they’re not racist loons, and making out that Farage is Griffin is simply wrong and dishonest. But don’t judge everyone by the worst examples.

If I judged the right wing based on the right-wingers who piss me off the most, I’d conclude that they were all complacent, ignorant fascists. And I did used to think that way, if I’m honest. But I’ve come across reasonable right-wingers since then, and realised that I was wrong.

@ 67

“PS Does anybody else use the word “leftist” instead of “left wing” apart from right wing bloggers?”

I do, but only because it takes half a second less to type, and I’m very lazy.

“OK, but did Farage warn of that based on careful and sober assessment of the issue, or was he just spouting loads of anti-EU stuff, and one of those things by fluke turned out to be true?

Neither clever or lucky, just understands economics. Careful and sober yes but of course warning of the flaws with the Euro and pointing out what was happening and will happen with interest rates is seen as “anti eu” to the parliment, a stoped clock is right twice a day, the last time I checked Barroso was incorrect with every prediction he ever made about the Euro where as farage was warning correctly long before it kicked off.

To the rest of your post * thumbs up*

@Chaise Guevara..fuelled by hate a bit like Gordon Brown then who hates the alternative so much he blew up our country to cement an ideology….is scumbag to strong term in this context

76. Man on Clapham Omnibus

Nice to see a thread stay on track !

Maybe we could address some of the issues raised by Freeman in one of the only sensible contributions IMO.
Firstly the folly of setting up a common currency in a group of countries which are economically diverse.
Secondly the implications of common economic policies relating to that economic arrangement.(The winners and losers)
Thirdly, the issue of accountability to the populations (presumably) supporting this arrangement.
Finally, the future and structure politically,ideologically,culturally) of nation states and the superstate.

Personally I don’t want to be anything but British.

Maybe its time for the would be Bulgarians to put their hands (and pitch forks!) up and answer some of the above.

Yea good points, no one will ever adress them though. That is the problem.

@76
“Personally I don’t want to be anything but British”.

So what does being “British” actually mean? As a concept, Britishness has never truly existed. The British nation only came about as a result of the bribery and cajoling of the Scottish lairds and the forced union of Britain and Ireland.

For the record, I’m European and I have no problem with describing myself as such.

79. Robin Levett

@ P Diddy #65:

Farage is a principled politician

I just thought I’d extract that from your post. Presumably he has little control of his party, then, given the mendacity that comes through the door every election neatly printed onto what apepars to be a UKIP leaflet.

He might be principled – but he’s no more honest than any other politician, and less so than many. Even the kitten-heeled one baulked at including the lie about criminality when recycling Farage’s story about the Bolivian’s cat.

@Jack C #60:

Netherlands rejecting the Constitution?

Will that do as “one”, or are there reasons why that doesn’t count?

The Constitution died with the Dutch and French referenda. So no, it doesn’t count; the Lisbon treaty (which the Dutch Parliament ratified at the first time of asking) was not identical to the Constitution, the proposals having been amended to take account of the concerns raised.

Robin,
That’s exactly the sort of attitude that irritates.

You know very well that the Treaty is virtually the same as the Constitution, and this is a view shared by philes and phobics alike. In fact “views” are irrelevant, comparison shows something like 98% similarity.

Perhaps more important is the ratification of the Euro, which was never approved at all. (I refer, of course, to the Euro we have, not the one proposed and debated).

82. Ivan Monckton

In reply to post 48, thankyou for a first!As a rural labourer on low wages and tax credits, living in a rented cottage that only recently had electricity laid on, buying my clothes from charity shops and running a clapped out car with the back door tied up with binder twine, I find it amusing to be described as “posh left” just because I object to the shredding of the english language by someone who seems amost ready for war to stand up for his “englishness”.

Do we have to rely on the telly to have laughs at the LibDems expense/ – and there is plenty to laugh about with them and their playground antics isn’t there?

“Chaise Guevara..fuelled by hate a bit like Gordon Brown then who hates the alternative so much he blew up our country to cement an ideology….is scumbag to strong term in this context”
Uh I think Chaise has been the most reasoned in this thread. Reading blah, white trash and Andrew you have to believe in agent provocateurs because if anything fucks up the anti EU cause it is the bile from numpties like you three. I honestly believe if we didn’t have the Mail hate gang, we would be out of Europe now.
Brown was an ideologue, give me a break. That was the problem with new labour, they didn’t have an ideology. Incompetent chancers maybe but no different from all other politicians in the last hundred years.

@59 Freeman: You say “the ECJ judges are far less experienced than our own British judges”.

Your post prompted me to look up the judges who serve on the ECJ. They look pretty experienced to me. What’s the basis for your assertion?

“Reading blah, white trash and Andrew you have to believe in agent provocateurs, because if anything fucks up the anti EU cause it is the bile from numpties like you three. I honestly believe if we didn’t have the Mail hate gang, we would be out of Europe now.”

Wow, just wow. If anything screws up the “anti EU” its the way some people object to it, not the actual facts and failings of the eu they are objecting to, and be careful not to object to loud some pompus twats might get scared and think you are ready to “go to war”

Oh and by the way, we can not be out of “Europe” we can how ever be out of the economic and political association called the “eu”.

“I object to the shredding of the english language by someone who seems amost ready for war to stand up for his “englishness”.”

“Almost” ;)

“Wow, just wow. If anything screws up the “anti EU” its the way some people object to it, not the actual facts and failings of the eu they are objecting to, and be careful not to object to loud some pompus twats might get scared and think you are ready to “go to war”

That is the point you sound and act like a rabid, foaming coward hiding behind a bad moniker. As I have said there are many good points to made against the EU and there even some defending the organisation, you and your sort want to resort to name calling and using phrases such as leftist scum. You might need the scum’s support to get out of the EU. Enoch Powell saw that option.

“by the way, we can not be out of “Europe” we can how ever be out of the economic and political association called the “eu”.”
I am sure you and the Daily Mail will run a campaign for us to become a continent.
By the way it is pompous twats

“That is the point you sound and act like a rabid, foaming coward hiding behind a bad moniker”

If I sound like a rabid foaming coward then what do those who attempt to make you look like a racist, loon, unstable, hate filled individual any time you speak against the eu sound and act like?

That would be scum, considering they are all of the left that would make them leftistscum. I was however wrong to call the entire left scum I have already been through that above, however if you honestly think that tone is the main thing that “messes up the anti eu” you are a an idiot. Perhaps you need your living standards destroyed by incompitent idiots playing political economics before you can understand the seriousness of there failings.

“You and your sort want to resort to name calling and using phrases such as leftist scum”

After perhaps the 10th thousand conversation about the eu in which no relevant points were addressed and the only response they could come up with was to attack, yes. Not specific to this site and its not confined to me, I am well aware of this. Those “techniques” were well alive when the euro was in the making, the uk did not join, those who were forced to and now suffer as a result have NO ONE to hold to account.

“I am sure you and the Daily Mail will run a campaign for us to become a continent.”

You have some weird thing with the dailymail, reading politcal news that is factual is shit enough, I think I will give your pet hate a pass. The point is you refer to “europe” which opens the window of opportunity for ” so you are against europe” ” you are against the european people” etc. Fuck off.

I am against the eu (NOT EUROPE) due to its failings mismanagment unaccountability and power thurst. Free trade and frendly cooperation I am for.

“By the way it is pompous twats”

Aw you can spell.

Genius!

That would be scum, considering they are all of the left that would make them leftistscum.

Technically it’s the ‘liberal left’ and ‘centre left’ that tended to make those sort of defences of the EU, the hard left and far left were always opposed to the EU for the very same reasons they don’t like capitalism in general.
Course the main problem is that the ruling right is generally committed to the EU project anyway, although their ability to simultaneously spin the plates ‘free market capitalism’ and ‘nationalism’ is increasingly degrading as their irreconcilable nature becomes more pronounced.

“If I sound like a rabid foaming coward then what do those who attempt to make you look like a racist, loon, unstable, hate filled individual any time you speak against the eu sound and act like?”
Try to be rational but unfortunately your posts do sound unstable, and hate filled.
“After per haps the 10th thousand conversation about the eu in which no relevant points were addressed and the only response they could come up with was to attack, yes. Not specific to this site and its not confined to me, I am well aware of this.

You sound very paranoid and with a very massive “the world is against me”
complex. See a psychiatrist before you start planting nail bombs

“you sound very paranoid and with a very massive “the world is against me” complex. See a psychiatrist before you start planting nail bombs”

Oh my word, you are exactly the kind of filth that would have been running a psikhushkas in the soviet union, there are countless people who cant attest those speaking negativly of the eu being labled loons and racist, there are even people who comment on this blog who can attest to these methods being used to counter critism towards issues as serious as the introduction of the euro.

You are absolutle SCUM.

Blah as I have said before there are many sane voices against the EU.
I am sorry but you are a loon.
Massive persecution complex.
Also are you saying mental illness is a myth or ruse put together by the commies and their fellow travellers.
