Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I'm not a fan of Nigel Farage.  He's a conservative British member of the right wing UKIP.  Some of the UKIP's core items are free trade and a flat tax.  Furthermore in general I support the concept of the EU, and even the Eurozone.  While some of this rant borders on extremism, the part about the Euro leaders replacing elected leaders with bankers and the problems with that is pretty amazing.  The reactions of some of the people in the background are priceless.



Well here we are, on the edge of a financial and social disaster, and in the room today we have the four men who were supposed to be responsible.  And yet we’ve listened to the dullest, most technocratic speeches I’ve ever heard.

You are all in denial.  By any objective measure the Euro is a failure.

And who is actually responsible who’s in charge, out of you lot?  Well of course the answer is none of you.  Because none of you have been elected none of you have any democratic legitimacy for the roles that you currently hold within this crisis.
And into this vacuum, all be it reluctantly, has stepped Angela Merkel.  And we are now living, we are now living in a German dominated Europe.  Something that the European project was actually supposed to stop.  Something that those that went before us actually paid a heavy price in blood to prevent.

I don’t want to live in a German dominated Europe, and nor do the citizens of Europe.  

But you guys have played a role. Because when Mr. Papandreo got up and used the word referendum, our Mr. Ren you described it as a breach of confidence, and your friends here got together like a pack of hyenas rounded on Papandreo had him removed, and replaced by a puppet government.  What an absolutely disgusting spectacle that was.  Not satisfied with that, you decided that Berlusconi had to go.  So he was removed and replaced by Mr. Monty.  A former European commissioner, a fellow architect of this euro disaster, and a man who wasn’t even a member of the parliament.

It’s getting like an Agatha Christie novel.  Where we’re trying to sort of work out who’s the next person who’s going to be bumped off.

The difference is we know who the villains are.  You should all be held accountable for what you’ve done, you should all be fired.

And I have to say, Mr. Von Rompuy.  18 months ago when we first met I was rather wrong about you. I said you’d be the quiet assassin of nation state democracy.  But you’re not anymore, you’re rather noisy about it aren’t you.  You, an unelected man, went to Italy and said “this is not the time for elections, but the time for actions”.  What in god,s name gives you the right to say that to the Italian people
