With assholes still puckering across the Atlantic after last Thursday’s stunning vote when British voters told the European Union to go pound sand, UK Independence party head Nigel Farage went to Brussels and openly mocked the EU Parliament on their own home turf. In the must see video of the week the boos and catcalls of the indignant technocrats weren’t enough to drown out a man who helped to deliver that which they all despise: democracy.
The most vocal architect of Britain’s seismic decision to leave the European Union thumbed his nose at the EU Parliament Tuesday as members booed and turned their backs on him, in the most visible clash of ideologies between Britain and Europe since last week’s vote.
Nigel Farage, leader of the far-right UK Independence Party (UKIP), gloated unapologetically and antagonized a battered union in Brussels, calling for free trade with the bloc while insulting members in the same breath.
“Isn’t it funny? When I came here 17 years ago and I said that I wanted to lead a campaign to get Britain out of the European Union, you all laughed at me. Well, I have to say, you’re not laughing now, are you?” he said.
To those who are onto the dirty secret that globalism is a dangerous scam it was wonderful to see the vote go down as it did. It was a running drop kick in the nuts to the establishment and the full fury of the elite will be brought down upon the British for their insolence. However, now that it has been seen that a people can use what remains of democracy to cast off the shackles of their oppressors the idea will not be contained very easily.
The Brits made a damned good effort to take their country back last week, come November 8th Americans can take theirs back as well.
