Brexit – Nigel Farage’s final speech to European Parliament cut short after he waves flag

(For my Canadian friend et al) – This was in my inbox this morning :

Nigel Farage’s farewell speech to the European Parliament was cut short after he said goodbye by brandishing a Union flag along with his Brexit Party colleagues.

Farage’s mic cut for ‘disobeying the rules’.

“We love Europe, we just hate the European Union,” said Farage, labeling the EU an “anti-democratic” institution that gave technocrats “power without accountability.”

The Brexit Party leader then spoke of a “historic” battle taking place in the west.

“It is globalism against populism and you may loathe populism, but I’ll tell you a funny thing, it’s becoming very popular,” said Farage.

“I know you want to ban our national flags, but we’re going to wave you goodbye,” said Farage before his audio was cut.

Shortly after Brexit Party MEPs began waving the flags, McGuinness cut Farage’s microphone and ordered the Union Jacks to be removed.

“If you disobey the rules, you get cut off, could we please remove the flags,” said McGuinness.

And that in a nutshell is the very reason why Britain is leaving the EU.

My opinion :

THANK YOU Nigel Farage, you have achieved a great thing no one else could – Tomorrow we will leave the EU and the democratic vote of 2016 will be honoured. (And that’s some achievement my saying that, as I started out as a Brexit remainer)

Four long years were wasted with heal dragging, time wasting and squabbling, whilst more important matters in the UK weren’t addressed at all – MANY UK citizens at home and abroad, have suffered as a consequence.

EU mic cut, is symbolic of the shape of things to come for our friends in Europe, at the hands of their EU rulers. Hopefully they will find their own Nigel Farage’s, and get out whilst they still have the freedom to. Reports I’ve heard are that these processes are already in play, populists across Europe are poised to take back their sovereignty and borders.

A new era and new hope for UK is almost upon us. Let’s hope the people made the right decision …

    1. Yes, totally agree.

      I think winning the “populist” vs “globalist” thing important too, Farage even made a joke about it 🙂

      Hopefully UK is doing the right thing, only time will tell.

      1. You’re right of course Leslie.

        But, it’s all based on Johnson, Cummings and conservatives doing a good job, and not selling us out. For all I know it could be the same Oligarchs pulling the strings behind the scenes. Fingers crossed not though 🙂

      2. Hmmm … not sure if I “fuck like a champion” or think “luxury communism now” is a sane idea …

        So, probably, I’d make a perfect PM !

        I’m probably about Boris’ age

        Joking apart – I don’t know if I told you, but I met him once. He was on his bike (when he was mayor) and passed us near London bridge. Took me a split second to realise who he was, he smiled, I smiled – seemed like an OK chap to me.

      3. OK, I’ve got a few years to get ready for it, already started my politics training via Youtube, so should be up to speed by then 🙂

        I don’t think we can trust any politicians, but some are better than others (and have better or worse people around them)
