Yesterday, Little Miss Messy placed a brilliant comment on our Detlev Schlichter post. She kindly copied a response she had received from Mr Farage’s office in regard to the state’s role in the banking system. We reproduce her comments below.
We have then posted Mr Farage’s recent speech in European Parliament. One of the few voices of reason yet again.
Here are Little Miss Messy’s comments:
Excellent article from Schlichter – makes total sense. I very much doubt the state will get the hell out of money and banking in the UK. Con/Lib/Lab won’t and…
Here is an email exchange I had with UKIP:
What does Mr Farage think about the state getting out of money and the banking system?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for asking this. Strangely enough, the state (a sovereign, democratic state, that is) should have more control over money and banks. The Bank of England should be nationalised, for example, and monetary policy should be controlled by Ministers of the Crown. This would actually be very good for genuine private enterprise, because the current system is run by huge, privately-owned corporations for their own benefit.
We need a firm, patriotic hand on the financial tiller, less regulation, in general, and a currency based on real goods – an end to debt-based fiat and “quantitative easing” (i.e. artificial inflation)
