MEP and UKIP leader Nigel Farage on Wednesday delivered another major tirade against EU President Herman van Rompuy during a debate in the European Parliament. Farage highlighted the undemocratic fashion in which van Rompuy came to power and the effect he’s had on Europe since.
He noted, too, that Greece has been reduced to nothing more than a “protectorate.” Farage added that Van Rompuy had the “charisma of a damp rag” and the appearance of a “low-grade bank clerk” and asked by what process he could be removed from office.
Belgium managed to run itself as dysfunctional as usual without a government for almost nine months. That tells you all you need to know about politics.
Just asking.....but has anybody ever seen van Rompey and a Goleb from Lord of the Rings in the same room?
