Once upon a time. Nigel tells a story... In generations to come, children will be told a story. They'll be told that once upon a time, Europe was divided. There was a big wall, down the middle of it. And the people in the East were very poor and they had no democracy. And they lived under an evil system called communism that killed millions of its own people. But joy of joys, the wall came down. And we finished up with 27 nations and those people lived in democracy and 500 million people lived in peace. But sadly... sadly, sadly... No, there is more. I promise you... I promise you... I promise you there's more. Thank you, thank you. I should just sit down now. Well I must say, that's the first time... that's the first time I've evere received such applause and I am tempted, Mr Verhofstadt, I am tempted to sit down But if I may.. Sadly, the story continues. The politicians in charge became very greedy. And they wanted money for themselves and they wanted power. And so they resorted to lies and deceit. And they staged the most spectacular bureaucratic coup d'état that the world had ever seen. But they didn't need to use any bullets to do it, they were much cleverer, much more scheming than that. Though what they did is they put in place a new treaty. It was called the Lisbon Treaty. And then, and then, they gave 27 people total unlimited power. These would have been the people, these would have been the people that made all the laws. Of course, they already had a flag and they already had an anthem Of course, they already had a flag and they already had an anthem but they went about building a new state. But they ignored the people. And what they did, whether they knew it or not, is they recreated the very evil system that the people in Eastern Europe had lived under before. But the incredible thing was... the incredible thing was that many of the new bosses had also worked for that same evil system before. Well of course the plan was flawed and their fanciful monetary scheme collapsed. But still, the new bosses wouldn't listen to the people. No, they made life tougher and tougher. They put tens of millions into poverty, they denied people a say. And in the end, those people had to resort to violence to get back their nation states and their democracy. And the morale... and the morale of the story is they had learned nothing from history. Members of the European Parliament, before you give this Commission power remember, remember that 60 years ago an iron curtain came down on Europe but now with this Commission, there is an economic iron fist and it's been felt in Greece today. We cannot build a new country... (Speaker's mic silenced by Jerzy Buzek, president of the European Parliament...) Thank you, Mr President. If you want a happy ending it's up to you.
