Nigel Farage: There Are Going to Be Serious Banking Collapses
April 18, 2012
With escalating fears regarding the stability of the eurozone, today King World News interviewed former LBMA commodities broker and trader and current MEP Nigel Farage to get his take on the situation. Farage had some very interesting comments regarding the Italians moving large quantities of gold to Switzerland, but when KWN asked about the chaos in Europe, Farage stated, “Well, so far, from all of the European officials and from the new IMF branch office in Washington, we’ve had unanimity that there was no prospect, at any stage, of the euro being under threat.”
Nigel Farage continues:
“Suddenly, a big shot from the IMF says, ‘There is a problem here, and there may be a breakup of the eurozone. It could come sooner than you think.’ I see that as a bit of a crack in the dam. They’ve always used the argument that the euro was inevitable and it was here to stay, and an individual from the IMF has just completely blown that out of the water.
(The breakup could be disorderly) because there have been no contingency plans. This is what makes me so angry. I’ve been saying to Barroso and that little Van Rumpuy character, ‘Come on, let’s have a Plan B.’ Let’s actually get ourselves ready in case it goes the other way.’ The point the IMF official made is that there have been no contingency plans whatsoever….
