Néhány évvel ezelőtt a politikusok különböző évszámokat dobtak be a köztudatba az euró bevezetésének lehetséges időpontjáról. A dátum lebegtetésével egyben azt is sejttették, hogy az új valutanemmel együtt egyenes út vezet majd a Kánaánba...

Ez persze nem következett be, de mostanság, elnézve az euró rozoga állapotát, megkönnyebbülten lélegezhetünk fel, hogy nem is olyan nagy baj a forint megőrzése. Miután viszont a forint árfolyama az euróhoz van kötve, optimizmusra nincs túl sok ok, mert ha bedől az euró, az a forintot is magával rántja.

Mielőtt azonban mély depresszióba zuhannál nézd meg Nigel Farage, EP képviselő néhány héttel ezelőtti európai parlamenti felszólalását. Túl sok jót őt sem ígér, sőt….de talán jó kedvre derülsz, ha sok mindent sikerül megértened a beszédből. (Főleg, miután a videóhoz magyar felirat is készült:). Az eredeti angol szöveget a videó alatt tudod elolvasni.

Végül pedig egy feladat: döntsd el a bejegyzés végén található állításokról, hogy igazak-e vagy hamisak!

 “Another one bites the dust. Country number four, Spain, gets bailed out and we all of course know that it won't be the last. Though I wondered over the weekend whether perhaps I was missing something, because when the Spanish Prime minister Mr Rajoy got up, he said that this bailout shows what a success the euro-zone has been.

And I thought, well, having listened to him over the previous couple of weeks telling us that there would not be a bailout, I got the feeling after all his twists and turns he's just about the most incompetent leader in the whole of Europe, and that's saying something, because there is pretty stiff competition.

Indeed, every single prediction of yours, Mr Barroso, has been wrong, and dear old Herman Van Rompuy, well he has done a runner hasn't he. Because the last time he was here, he told us we had turned the corner, that the euro crisis was over and he hasn't bothered to come back and see us.

I remember being here ten years ago, hearing the launch of the Lisbon Agenda. We were told that with the euro, by 2010 we would have full employment and indeed that Europe would be the competitive and dynamic powerhouse of the world. By any objective criteria the Euro has failed, and in fact there is a looming, impending disaster.

You know, this deal makes things worse not better. A hundred billion [euro] is put up for the Spanish banking system, and 20 per cent of that money has to come from Italy. And under the deal the Italians have to lend to the Spanish banks at 3 per cent but to get that money they have to borrow on the markets at 7 per cent. It's genius isn't it. It really is brilliant.

So what we are doing with this package is we are actually driving countries like Italy towards needing to be bailed out themselves.

In addition to that, we put a further 10 per cent on Spanish national debtand I tell you, any banking analyst will tell you, 100 billion does not solve the Spanish banking problem, it would need to be more like 400 billion.

And with Greece teetering on the edge of Euro withdrawal, the real elephant in the room is that once Greece leaves, the ECB, the European Central Bank is bust. It's gone.

It has 444 billion euros worth of exposure to the bailed-out countries and to rectify that you'll need to have a cash call from Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy. You couldn't make it up could you! It is total and utter failure. This ship, the euro Titanic has now hit the iceberg and sadly there simply aren't enough life boats.”

Decide whether the following statements are true or false? (according to Mr Farage):
  1. The Spanish Prime Minister Mr Rajoy believes that the bailout Spain has received proves the success of the euro-zone.
  2. Mr Rajoy is one of the most competent leaders in Europe.
  3. According to Herman Van Rompuy the euro crisis is over.
  4. Mr Farage mentions the Kyoto Protocol in his speech.
  5. There’s no doubt about the failure of the euro.
  6. The Spanish have to lend to the Italian banks at 3 per cent.
  7. In order to lend money to the Spanish the Italians have to borrow on the markets at 7 per cent.
  8. Mr Farage sincerely believes that the deal between Italy and Spain is brilliant.
  9. Due to the bailout Spain’s national debt will be 10% higher than it is now.
  10. 100 billion euros will be more than enough to save the Spanish banking system.
