A very merry Christmas from everyone at Fortune & Freedom.

If it has been a tough year for you, I hope the video below will add some cheer.

That’s what Nigel Farage did for me back when the 2008 financial crisis, and the European sovereign debt crisis which followed it, were raging.

His ability to stand up, tell it like it is to those who don’t want to hear it, get at the heart of the matter, and do it all in a rather entertaining way made the whole thing a little more bearable. Unless you were serving in the European Commission at the time…

If you’ve enjoyed your year of rather wild and wacky news, and our coverage of it each week, I think you’ll enjoy this highlights reel…

We hope you’re looking forward to Part 2 on 1 January 2022.

And if you’d like to hear from Nigel and other guests more often and more conveniently, why not sign up to the new Fortune & Freedom podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music or Google Podcasts?
