United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage, who also led the Brexit campaign, told off the European Union parliament with much glee on Tuesday. Britain voted to leave the EU in a historic vote last Thursday.
“Isn’t it funny. When I came here 17 years ago and I said I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the EU, you all laughed at me but you are not laughing now,” Mr Farage told Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
“You have imposed on them a political union and when the people in 2005 in the Netherlands and in France voted against you, you simply ignored them and brought the Lisbon Treaty in by the back door!” he told MEPs in an emergency debate on Britain’s Brexit vote.
The other members of parliament booed him when he had the nerve to ask them “to give Britain a good trade deal when it leaves.” He responded:
“Why don’t we just be pragmatic, sensible, grown-up, reasonable … and cut a sensible tariff-free deal?” he asked.
In a speech interrupted several times, Mr Farage warned: “The UK will not be the last member state to leave the European Union.”
It seems a tad odd that out of everyone in the room, Farage acted like the grown up. He told them they are in denial over their failing currency, which they booed, but he told the truth: €1 = £.82
The British pound collapsed right after the vote became official, but instead of the doom and panic people predicted, the currency has bounced back.
