Nigel Paul Farage, who is a member of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) Member of the European Parliament for South East England, but most notably one of the most famous euro-skeptics, goes nuts on EU Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso, tearing down the commission self-evaluation, and noting among many other things that according to EU polls, in the last 6 months those having faith in the EU has dropped by 10% in Germany, 17% in Greece, 9% in Portugal, and “less than half of EU citizens believe that being a member of the club is worth it.”

On the ever debated topic of the one currency, Mr. Farage says that the “euro doesn’t suite Germany and doesn’t suite Greece.”
