Nigel Farage Lashes Out Against Greek Prime Minister (Video)

Greece’s Prime Minister, Antonis Samaras, attended the European Parliament on Wednesday, January 15, in order to present and describe the priorities of the Greek EU presidency. However, what he received was an outburst and criticism from British MEP Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party, who it would be fair to say is not a supporter of the EU project.

Mr. Farage did not restrain himself and attacked the Greek Prime Minister whom he called former Goldman Sachs’ employee-puppet, along with Giorgos Papandreou and Lucas Papademos.

Mr. Farage stated: “Well I have to congratulate you, Mr Samaras, for getting the Greek presidency off to such a cracking start. I’m sure we’ll have them dancing in the streets in Athens, no matter that your country, very poorly advised by Goldman Sachs, joined a currency that it was never suited to, no matter that 30% are unemployed, that 60% of youth are unemployed, that a Neo-Nazi party is on the march, that there was a terrorist attack on the German embassy. No don’t worry about all that because the trilogue on MiFID has been a success.”

“And you come here Mr. Samaras and you tell us that you represent the sovereign will of the Greek people? Well, I’m sorry, but you’re not in charge of Greece, and I suggest you rename and re-brand your party – it’s called ‘New Democracy’, I suggest you call it ‘No Democracy’. Because Greece is now under foreign control. You can’t make any decisions, you’ve been bailed out, and you’ve surrendered democracy, the thing your country invented in the first place,” he continued.

Referring to Mr. Samaras, Farage said: “You can’t admit that joining the euro was a mistake – of course Papandreou did that didn’t he, he even said there should be a referendum in Greece and within 48 hours, the unholy trinity (troika) that now run this European Union had him removed and replaced by an ex-Goldman Sachs employee puppet. We are run now by big business, big banks and in the shape of Mr Barroso, big bureaucrats.”

While Farage kept badgering the Greek Prime Minister, Samaras did not lose his self-control. His answer to the first was restrained and simple. “I want to thank Mr. Farage on the lecture of what democracy is and what it is not. I would have appreciated even more if, besides all the lecturing, there could have been some hint of solidarity. I saw none. Some may not be happy that Greece did not give in to the exit scenario.”

  1. It was admirable of Mr Samaras not to lose his self-control after such an onslaught, but then, what could he say in his defence when every aspect of Nigel Farage’s criticism was true?

    The Greek people have every right to be furious at the way they have been sold down the river. Nigel was, as always, bang on the money.

  2. Nigel Farage ripped Samaras apart deservingly so. Samaras is a lier and another protector of all the LAMOGIA that bankrupted Greece!

  3. I do not have any comments at this moment…What I can say is that New Democracy & Pasok party members past & present deserve to be thrown in jail for their direct or indirect involvement in this crisis…Nigel Farage used his rights as a parliamentarian to humiliate the Greek PM for his negativity in handling the country’s issues…Still the country did not achieved anything yet and no foreign investors are interested in Greece at present…Greece’s downfall is caused by the massive corruption within the government, the civil servants together with their parasites…

  4. thank you nigel farage. you speak the truth. most are scared to say what he said. especially those in high positions with things left to lose. Someone needs to wake the citizens of greece up and help them to take back their country.

  5. CORRECT!! THERE IS NO DEMOCRACY IN GREECE… GREECE IS UNDER THE CONTROL OF TROIKA…. GREECE DOESN’T NEED A ‘YES MAN’ LIKE SAMARAS AND PASOK FOR EVERY TIME TROIKA ORDERS GREECE WHAT TO DO. TROIKA IS ONLY INTERESTED IN MONEY AND PROFITS AND NOT THE PEOPLE…. GREECE NEEDS A NEW LEADER, A NEW PARTY THAT WILL BRING GREECE BACK FROM HELL, GREECE NEEDS A MODERN, YOUNG PARTY THAT HAS NEW AND BRIGHT IDEAS FOR THE FUTURE OF GREECE AND NOT THE SAME OLD GARBAGE LIKE N.D, PASOK OR SYRIZA…. SYRIZA IS JUST ANOTHER COPY OF PASOK, A SOCIALIST PARTY WITH THE SAME OLD FARTS THAT WERE EJECTED FROM PASOK, IF SYRIZA EVER CAME TO POWER, IT WILL BE THE END FOR GREECE….

  6. Samara took the responsibility of the country’s affairs so he should expect to be humiliated before being praised…In this case, he has done nothing to save and protect the country and it’s citizens…2 Millions are unemployed with the majority without welfare and families with children without food…Any responsible person in his position will sacrifice himself for the sake of saving the people before his political career and his party’s career…Samara is a liar and he proved it with his famous and invisible “Success Story”…All we want is jobs to have food in our plates…

  7. Mr Samaras is a gentleman.and he proved it when he coolly and dismissively addressed the thug called Farage.He is a loud mouth rude and abusive and a disgrace to his country.English people are polite and decent people in England do not respect him.They might differ in opinion with the rest of The EU but they don’t express it in such vulgarity.

  8. Farage have a balls, not only hi is explaining what the Greeks are but to the corporate Mafia as well….. bravo Farage !

  9. “people in England do not respect him.”

    i’m english and i respect him but i don’t respect bloggers who are paid for by the government?

  10. Farage is a nasty personality and his behavior disgraces a very decent country.If the English want to exit the EU why don’t they do it right now..There is not reason to treat others in such a thuggish manner.

  11. The people in Britain have never been asked, the Goverment just push things through, so far they have done everything to stop a vote for the people because they are worried we will all say no.

  12. Not all.Only the National front and the the bigot Farage.The British people may decide in the coming referendum to opt out but this decision will be with democratic means and decency and not with threats from the extreme elements and thugs.The British are a civilized nation and democracy is very important in this country. And even if the vote to exit they will not want to make enemies of the EU. Farage is full of hate apart of having a foul mouth.His closest friends are the National front and the other Nazi parties of Europe including GD of Greece which is a criminal organization.

  13. Oh, you deserve to be decapitated like Lee Rigby, you multiculturalist left wing t8it. Take a day trip to a London mosque

  14. Pal this is exactly what I mean. decapitating is the way of your NAZI ideology.And for your information i am not left wing at all.We have a democratic government who will do the best for us when the time comes.
