EU Parliamentarian: UK Victimizing Iran for Sake of EU, US

TEHRAN (FNA)- Nigel Farage, a renowned British politician and the leader of the UK Independence Party, believes that the UK government is taking side with the European Union (EU) countries and the US in its diplomatic relations with Iran and intends to victimize Iran for the interests of its allies.

"It seems to me that the UK is collaborating with the USA and the EU to victimize Iran for exercising her rights as a sovereign nation and for daring to pursue policies, which do not accord with collaborators' plans for supra-national world-domination," Farage told Fars News Agency in an exclusive interview on Monday.

The full text of the interview with UK parliamentarian Nigel Farage follows:

Q: How do you evaluate cooperation between Iran and UK?

A: It seems to me that the UK is collaborating with the USA and the EU to victimize Iran for exercising her rights as a sovereign nation and for daring to pursue policies, which do not accord with collaborators' plans for supra-national world-domination.

Q: Do you agree that Europe needs a redefinition of its political - economic system?

A: I do. Politically, the EU (which is NOT "Europe", I hasten to add) has become a totalitarian state and its economy is deteriorating rapidly. This is because democracy is only possible in a nation-state, which has a common language, and because the EU's regulatory burden, cultural homogenization, absurd single currency, unaccountability, coercion and centralization of power are at variance both with the wishes of the citizenry and with reality.

Q: If you were Prime minister, instead of David Cameron, what would you do to solve the UK financial problems?

A: Reject EU-control, at once, stop mass-immigration, re-shape education, restore industry and employment and trade freely with the world. None of these things can be done while EU-collaborationist parties retain control of government in Britain.

Q: We have seen that some radical figures have asked for military option against Iran in terms of its nuclear program issue. What is your take on this? Do you think this option can help or it can worsen the situation?

A: I think it is an utterly inexcusable and scurrilous threat to make and should be totally unthinkable for any civilized nation. It cannot but degrade international relations towards the level of a brawl.

Q: By the way, we want to explore you idea on Iran and Britain's relations during the last century. What ups and downs has it seen? and do you think that the relations will be re established? if so when?

A: The deterioration of relations between Britain and Iran occurred very suddenly, fifty years ago, when the western collaborators decided that Iran posed a political and economic threat to their political and economic ambitions in the Middle East. In my view, that remains their chief concern - whatever they may say about nuclear weapons, which are rather their latest convenient excuse - and this is why they have provoked the Iran-Iraq war and are hoping to destabilize Iran. These serial destabilizations are an end in themselves. Each one of them has criminally retarded Iran's political and economic development, which was precisely the point of instigating them. On the other hand, an independent Britain - free of her present supranational entanglements - would be able to conduct transparent and cordial, fair and mutually profitable, diplomatic and trading relations with Iran, as one democratic nation to another. This could occur in a very few years from now.

Q: Are you confirming actions of Shell Company regarding not-following world boycotts against Iran? Why?

A: I think these boycotts are morally indefensible, counter-productive and sinister - as I have said - and I applaud anyone else who says so.

Q: What is your opinion on independence of Scotland from the Great Britain?

A: Scotland was united with England and Ireland in 1707 and is entirely integrated within the UK. Most of the Scottish people are, in reality, English - they and their ancestors (including their much celebrated poet, Robert Burns) never spoke Scottish - and the present impetus towards secession from the UK is the result of a plot, by supra-nationalists and foreign powers (represented, among others, by a certain Canon Kenyon-Wright) to emasculate the UK and to disperse her, in the EU, as a clutch of impotent EU-provinces.

Q: How do you evaluate Iran's position and its importance in the Middle-East?

A: Iran has a remarkably strategic position, between the Middle East and India. She has an Indo-European language, great mineral wealth and enormous potential for education and economic development.

Q: BBC, often, is trying to show as a neutral medium, but some experts and audience believe that this network has some sensible political considerations in its news coverage. why is that? Is the reason dependency of the corporation on the British Government?

A: Yes - and on the supra-nationalist collaborators, who control the British government, with the result that the BBC is in flagrant breach of its founding Charter and is subtly, but shamelessly, acting as a conduit for supra-nationalist propaganda.

Q: What is your opinion on austerity plans in Europe?

A: On the one hand, they are a desperate and ruthless attempt to prop up a failing economic bloc. On the other hand, they are a cynical exploitation, of that failure, designed to divest the EU's subject states of all their remaining self-determination and democracy.

Nigel Farage is a British politician and is the Leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), a position he also held from September 2006 to November 2009.
