This morning, Nigel Farage delivered his well-deserved victory speech in the European Parliament after the UK voted to leave the European Union.
Nigel overcame Jean-Claude Juncker, Martin Schulz and a chamber full of jeering MEPs with what must be regarded as one of his very best speeches – this is what we were all fighting for:
“Isn’t it funny? When I came here 17 years ago and I said that I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain to leave the European Union, you all laughed at me – well I have to say, you’re not laughing now, are you? The reason you’re so upset, you’re so angry, has been perfectly clear, from all the angry exchanges this morning.
You as a political project are in denial. You’re in denial that your currency is failing. Just look at the Mediterranean! As a policy to impose poverty on Greece and the Mediterranean you’ve done very well..”
