(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 …
