Nigel Farage-8. srpnja, čelnik UKIP-a Nigel Farage, europarlamentarac (na slici) told the European Parliament that “The European project is actually beginning to die. This isn’t just Greece we are talking about today. The continent is now divided from north to south. There is a new Berlin wall and it is called the euro.”

U raspravi u Strasbourgu u nazočnosti predsjednika Komisije Jean-Claudea Junckera i predsjednika Vijeća Donalda Tuska, drugi čelnici političkih skupina govorili su u nestalnoj i ljutitoj razmjeni.

Speaking during a visit to the chamber by the Greek Prime Minister Alex Tsipras, Farage turned to the Greek leader: “You have been very brave. You called that referendum. There were threats and bullying but the Greeks stood firm.”

“So your moment has come, and frankly if you have the courage you should lead the Greek people out of the eurozone with your head held high. Get back your democracy; get back control of your country. Give your people the leadership and the hope that they crave. Yes it will be tough in the first few months but with a devalued currency and with friends of Greece all over the world, you will recover.”

    “Thank you. What we’re seeing in this chamber this morning and indeed across the whole of Europe is an irreconcilable cultural difference between Greece and Germany. A split between the North and the South of Europe. The European project is actually beginning to die. Nobody in this room will recognise that the peoples of Europe are saying, we were never asked whether we want in this. This has been foisted upon on us and we need to understand why the EMU doesn’t work. Those monsters Kohl and Mitterrand, backed up by the clever but dangerous Delors believed that if they put in place an economic and monetary union then as night follows day, there would be political union and there would be an acceptance of this project and the North and South of Europe would converge. That we would all start to love each other and we would all start to feel a European identity, that we would all start to show allegiance to the flag and the anthem.

    Those, of course, that criticised this were told we were extremists and we lacked vision. Well one vision we didn’t lack is we understood the countries of Europe are different and if you try to force together different people and different economies without first seeking the consent of those people it is unlikely to work and the plan has failed. This isn’t just Greece we’re talking about today, the whole of the Med now finds itself in the wrong currency and yet virtually nobody in the political arena has the courage to stand up and say that. Indeed, Osjećam da je kontinent sada podijeljen sa sjevera na jug, postoji novi berlinski zid i zove se euro. Nastavljena su stara neprijateljstva. Samo poslušajte način na koji je njemački čelnik skupine CDU jutros napao gospodina Tsiprasa. Zapravo je bio odvratan, ali pokazuje način na koji Sjever i Jug osjećaju jedni prema drugima.

    Oglas

    Mr Tsipras, your country should never have joined the euro, I think you acknowledge that. But the big banks, big business and big politics forced you in. Goldmans Sachs, the German arms manufacturers, they were all very happy when the bailouts began. They weren’t for the Greek people, those bailouts were for French, German and Italian banks. They haven’t helped you at all. These years of austerity, years of high employment and increasing poverty, none of it’s worked. In fact, your debt GDP ratio has gone from 100 percent at the start of the crisis to 180 percent right now. It would be madness sir, to continue on this course.

    Bila si vrlo hrabra. Sazvali ste taj referendum. Kad je jedan od vaših prethodnika pokušao učiniti isto, nasilnici u Bruxellesu su ga uklonili. Ponovno su se potrudili, gospodin Juncker rekao je da ćete morati napustiti Euro i napustiti EU. Čak je i gospodin Schulz, predsjednik parlamenta, za kojeg bi netko mogao pomisliti da je neutralan, rekao da bi, ako bi Grci glasali ne, opskrba električnom energijom mogla i pasti. Bilo je prijetnji i maltretiranja, ali Grci su čvrsto stajali. Ali gospodine, ne možete dobiti svoj kolač i pojesti ga. Oni vam više neće dati te ljude. Ne mogu si priuštiti, ako vam daju više, moraju dati i ostalim članicama eurozone.

    Dakle, došao je vaš trenutak i iskreno, ako imate hrabrosti, trebali biste odvesti grčki narod iz eurozone uzdignute glave. Vratite svoju demokraciju; vratite kontrolu nad svojom zemljom. Dajte svojim ljudima vodstvo i nadu za kojom žude. Yes it will be tough in the first few months but with a devalued currency and with friends of Greece all over the world, you will recover. “
