UKIP leader Nigel Farage says 17 years ago you laughed at me, you are not laughing now.
UKIP MEP Nigel Farage slammed the European Parliament in the first session since ‘Brexit’ in Brussels, Tuesday.
Rising to loud jeers as well as some claps, Farage told MEPs “I said that I wanted to lead a campaign go get Britain out of the European Union, you all laughed at me. Well, I have to say; you’re not laughing now, are you?” President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz soon intervened asking for members to exhibit decorum.
Speaking at an emergency session to discuss the Brexit vote, Farage took aim at German Chancellor’s decision to allow in Syrian refugees, stating it “has led to massive divisions between countries and within countries.” Continuing the UKIP leader accused the EU of imposing of “political union” on the UK “by stealth, by deception, without ever telling the truth.”
“I’ll make one prediction this morning; the United Kingdom will not be the last member state to leave the European Union,” added Farage.
