Via The Right Scoop, the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) is interviewed on the FOX morning show about the assertion by European commission president Jose Manuel Barroso that the US is responsible for the financial crisis in Europe. Click the image to watch:
In one sense, Barroso is right: the poor decisions made under the Clinton administration (and then defended by Democrats under Bush) regarding the bundling of sub-prime mortgages and then selling them as federally backed investment instruments did infect the financial system and did cause major damage.
BUT… As Mr. Farage points out, the real problem in Europe is an artificial, unsustainable currency, the Euro, and the political union that foisted it upon nations not ready for such a project. That is the real, core problem of the EU and the debt crisis in Europe. That, and a failure of leadership from leftover lefties who think the answer is more cowbell.
Anyway, enjoy the interview. Farage is always a pleasure to listen to, especially when skewering the statist popinjays of the European Union in the EU parliament.
