Nigel Farage continues:

“There were 5,000 Greek police there using tear gas and there were 10 major buildings that were set on fire.  It really was a very dramatic scene that took place in Athens on Sunday.  The Greek Prime Minister, before the vote, said, ‘Violence and destruction have no place in a democratic country.’  My response to that today, on the floor of the European Parliament, was, ‘What democratic country?’  You know we’ve got a Prime Minister that nobody voted for and we now have what is called ‘The Troika,’ who are bureaucrats from the European Commission, the ECB and the IMF.

These three bureaucrats come in once a fortnight and they tell the Greek Prime Minister what he may and may not do.  There is no democracy in Greece.  The country that invented democracy has now had it stripped away.  Is it any wonder that people take to the streets and things turn violent if their rights have been taken from them?  That was really the key point I was making today.”

Farage also had this to say regarding the police beginning to turn on their masters:  “I agree with that because the second part of the quote from (Greek Prime Minister) Papademos, he said, ‘This behavior will not be tolerated.’  Meaning we’re going to crack down hard....

“And in fact the protests didn’t just take place in Athens, they took place in every major city in Greece.  So I think what we are seeing is an understanding from the police, in Greece, that people are now desperate.  We are talking about a country whose society is literally on the verge of breaking down. 

Living standards are collapsing in Greece.  The rate at which the Greek economy is contracting is now accelerating.  They are headed into a deflationary death spiral (in Greece) and I think the police realize that you now have a huge number of homeless people.  

People are actually giving up their kids, to the state, for adoption because they can’t afford to feed them.  I mean things are very, very bad.”  

Farage also added, “I can also tell you this, Eric, and I haven’t told this to anybody yet, you’re the first, but last week a former distinguished Greek Ambassador came to see me.  He was one of the guys who, back in the 70s and 80s, negotiated Greece’s entry into what was the European Community Common Market.  

He told me that he and his friends, who live in the big detached houses on the outskirts of Athens, they are all going out and buying Kalashnikovs (rifles).  He said, ‘We are doing that because we think those of us that have assets and property, at some point soon, are going to need to defend our properties.’

This is absolutely terrifying.  And in the face of all of this, the Greek government, because there aren’t enough Greek politicians with courage, voted for this bailout package and for yet more massive deflationary cuts.  

Frankly, I’ve hinted before when I’ve spoken to you, I think if this route is pursued, we are heading for a revolution.”
