Pro-Brexit Lawmaker Nigel Farage Lets Hostile European Parliament Have It: 'You're Not Laughing Now, Are You?

"No, no, no — as a policy to impose poverty on Greece and the rest of the Mediterranean, you’ve done very well."

British politician Nigel Farage, one of the leading voices behind the Brexit movement, delivered a blistering speech to a hostile European Parliament Tuesday, scolding and mocking MEPs over their “denial” that the European Union is failing.

“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,” he said. “Well I have to say, you’re not laughing now, are you?”

Farage told MEPs that the reason they are “so angry” is “perfectly clear.”

“You, as a political project, are in denial,” he said. “You’re in denial that your currency is failing. … Just look at the Mediterranean."

When members began booing in disagreement, Farage sarcastically added, "No, no, no — as a policy to impose poverty on Greece and the rest of the Mediterranean, you’ve done very well."

Farage later openly mocked members of European Parliament, telling them they have never held a “proper job,” ran a business or actually created a job.

Cameras captured some of the telling reactions from MEPs during Farage's unforgiving verbal assault.

The lawmaker concluded his speech by warning the body that a failure to come to a trade agreement with a sovereign Britain would have serious consequences for their countries. However, he claimed even “no deal” on trade is still better than the deal Britain previously had with the EU.
