Speech of the week



A must see speech from the European parliament, November 16th. It's Nigel Farage a member of the UK Independence Party who holds nothing back. It's entertaining, sure, but they're not laughing much in the EU these days.

It is a good point that he raises, about the democratic legitimacy of the successors installed in both Greece and Italy. Will they have support in coming months as austerity measures start to really hurt? Can professors run a government? That will be an interesting experiment in Italy, for sure.
