Nigel Farage is the only man talking any sense at the moment. I just hope your politicians listen to him.

In Nigel Farage’s first TV appearance since the Cypriot wealth tax was announced, the Englishman pulls no punches. In all his years and all his experience of the desperation of the European Union’s leadership “never did [he] think they would resort to stealing money from people’s savings accounts.” The simple fact is that they know they cannot let any country leave, no matter how small, for “once one country goes, the whole deck of cards will come tumbling down.” There is now “clear irreconcilable differences” between the North and the South of Europe and now that they have done this in one country, “they are quite capable of doing it in Italy, Spain and anywhere.” The message that sends to people is ”get your money out while you can.” As far as his British constituents, he strongly recommends George Osborne (UK Chancellor) urge ex-pats to remove all their money and do monthly transfers from home. “Do Not Invest In The Euro-Zone,” he concludes,“you have to be mad to do so – as it is now run by people who do not respect democracy, the rule of law, or the basic principles upon which Western civilization is based.”

“They are propping up a Eurozone that, in the end, will collapse in disastrous failure and they are prepared to do anything to do so.”

Farage is a europhobe who wants to see the Euro fail because the UK cannot be a part of it. As a typical politician, with excellent rhetorical skills, he jumps on the bandwagon, not to (honestly) support Cyprus but to bash the Euro and cause hysteria to try and help bring it down.

Nail on head! Farage is quite a convincing speaker, and comes across very well. But his head is firmly buried in the sand. You can gauge his success by the fact that his UKIP party doesn't have a single seat in the UK Parliament.

The EZ should have known better than to mess with Islanders.

My Cypriot friends were having a huge party when I phoned them yesterday. They’ve been through a lot. They’ve seen their island carved into two and their friends and relatives go missing. They’ve lost their houses and their fields. But they are a strong society and they’ve learnt to watch out for each other. They are not stupid. They are very frightened of forces they have unleashed. But they have learnt to be independent and they are quietly confident that they can ride whatever storm is coming.

Little Cyprus. Who would have thought it? The Achilles Heel of Europe

No reason why he should support Cyprus - note the UK in UKIP - but real reason why he shouldn't support the Euro. It is a politician's fraud, without any economic sense.
The strength of the currency that a country uses depends on the strength of that country's economy. Could you seriously believe that the Cypriot economy is as strong as the German economy? As matters stand, there will be a never ending series of crisis as weaker economies ask the stronger economies to shovel 'loans' their way. The stronger countries, especially Germany, will get tired of this and demand to control the economy of weaker countries. This in turn will mean political control. Now, let me tell you about colonialism ......
