Proclaiming his support for new British PM Theresa May, former UKIP head Nigel Farage explained “she has said ‘Brexit means Brexit’ and I believe her,” before announcing plans for his European Referendum Tour during a much at the Republican national convention yesterday. Farage told Politico that he would start a tour of European cities in September to help spread the appetite for referendums on EU membership beyond the UK.
“One of the joys of not continuing as party leader is having more time, so I will be traveling around Europe helping other independence movements, but I won’t be telling them how to vote,” Farage said. Continue reading »

Nigel Farage, UKIP leader and passionate advocate for the UK to leave the European Union, announced unexpectedly today that he is stepping down as party leader, just days after he led a successful, and historic, campaign to Leave the European Union. Speaking in Westminster, Farage said the Brexit referendum was about Britons taking their country back, and having succeeded at that, Farage now “wants his life back.” His resignation completes the recent chaos in UK politics which has seen both the Conservative and Labour parties scramble to find new leadership in the aftermath of the Brexit vote.
Farage has resigned before, in May 2015, following the U.K. general election. On that occasion he returned a few days later when the party rejected his resignation. This time however, he said, “I won’t be changing my mind again, I can promise you.” Farage said his reason for getting into politics was to get Britain out of the European Union, and with that achieved, “I feel I’ve done my bit.”
He said UKIP had “clearly established ourselves as the third political force in this country,” and should the Brexit exit negotiations not prove satisfactory “then in 2020 watch this space.” Continue reading »
“Lyin'” Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, tries to prevent photographers from snapping Nigel Farage, who looks on with justifiable schadenfreude.
Why is Juncker doing this? Apparently to remind the photographer that Farage is a non-person whose image must not be seen in the newspapers.

In his first appearance in European Parliament since the Brexit vote, UKIP leader Nigel Farage was greeted with raucous jeers and boos (presumably for enabling The Brits to exercise their democratic right to self-determination). Once EU President Martin Schulz had demanded (ironically) that they listen, Farage began his ‘victory’ speech by reminding his so-called peers of their laughter when he first suggested UK should leave The EU – “you’re not laughing now… are you!”
“..and the reason you’re so upset, the reason you’re so angry, the reason you’re not laughing is simple – you as a political project are in denial”
Other MEPs were vocal…

The European Union is an “empire that is hugely bureaucratic,” warns Marc Faber, telling CNBC that he thinks that “a Brexit would be bullish for global economic growth,” because “it would give other countries incentive to leave the badly organized EU.” The Gloom, Boom & Doom-er explained that Brexit is a risk Britain should be willing to take, and that it would not be a disaster, “on the contrary, it would be the best thing for Britain that would ever happen!” Rubbing further salt into the wounds of Europe’s establishment, outspoken pro-Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage exclaimed that he said he would “destroy the old EU”, together with 5-Star leader Beppe Grillo.

Same thing happened to two people I personally know.
Outspoken UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who has received numerous death threats during his tenure as a European parliamentarian, spoke for the first time last night about being the victim of an assassination attempt after his car was sabotaged, causing a terrifying motorway crash. As The Daily Mail reports, Farage careered off a French road after a wheel on his Volvo came loose while he was driving from Brussels back to his home in Kent. When the police arrived at the scene, they told him that the nuts on all of the wheels had been deliberately unscrewed…
The “frightening” incident which took place in October, near Dunkirk, followed a series of poisonous feuds within his party over recent years, both in London and in the European Parliament, where he sits as an MEP. Continue reading »

Nigel Farage unleashes another of his must-watch rage-fests aimed at the collapse of democracy in Europe. Amid the stunning “democracy crisis” in Portugal, where, as we detailed here, the government has lost its majority but the anti-EU opposition is being prevented from attempting to form a coalition, Farage fumes “this is the modern day implementation of the Brezhnev Doctrine. This is exactly what happened to states living inside the USSR.”
One of his best…
Transcript… (via Order-Order.com),
“This is the modern day implementation of the Brezhnev Doctrine. This is exactly what happened to states living inside the USSR . What is being made clear here with Greece and indeed with Portugal is that a country only has democratic rights if it’s in favour of the [European] project. If not, those rights are taken away.

Farage is absolutely correct about those ‘migrants’.
I have word from several of my contacts that these migrants just go into supermarkets & stores eat and drink whatever they want and leave a mess.
They also just take with them whatever they want.
And the police can’t deal with the situation anymore.
– Nigel Farage destroys the euro groupthink in just 4 minutes. (Sovereign Man, July 8, 2015):
Standing before the European Parliament yesterday, it took Nigel Farage just four minutes to completely destroy every argument supporting the Eurozone.
A few years back when he spoke at one of our Sovereign Man events in Santiago, he anticipated everything that we’re seeing right now.
Today it’s not nearly as controversial to say that the Eurozone experiment has failed. Anyone aware of what’s happening in Greece should say the same. But very few people really understand why.
As Nigel explains in the video below, right from the start, the system was never intended to help the Greek people. Continue reading »
– UKIP’s Nigel Farage voted ‘Briton of the Year’ (RT, Dec 28, 2014):
The Times named Nigel Farage of the UK Independence Party ‘Briton of the Year,’ calling him a game-changing politician who broke into and shaped the country’s politics in 2014. The decision prompted a storm of controversy in the media and on Twitter.
Farage has managed to lure many disillusioned voters away from the political establishment and has exploited every opportunity he can – which may mean his party will hold the balance of power in Westminster in the coming election.
This did not go unnoticed with the influential newspaper The Times, which announced its decision to honor Farage “for good and ill.”
– “Political Earthquake” – Nigel Farage “Big Winner” In Local Elections (ZeroHedge, May 23, 2014):
Yesterday we highlighted the European people’s growing ‘revulsion’ against Europe and overnight we got yet another confirmation that the status quo – despite record low bond yields and record high stock and real estate prices – are losing their grip on control. Having taken the lead in the polls last week, UKIP’s Nigel Farage has scored a major victory in local elections in England with early results pointing to considerable gains for the euro-skeptic party:
- UKIP GAINS 20 SEATS IN EARLY ENGLISH LOCAL-ELECTION RESULTS
- U.K. TORIES LOSE 20 SEATS IN EARLY LOCAL-ELECTION RESULTS
As Reuters reports, one MP noted “I think Nigel Farage for quite a lot of those people is just a big sort of two fingers stuck up at what they feel is a sort of hectoring, out-of-touch elite.”
Britain’s anti-EU party UKIP made strong gains in local elections in England, siphoning support from Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives as it capitalised on discontent about immigration and mainstream politics.
– Nigel Farage’s UKIP Takes Clear Lead In EU Election Polls (ZeroHedge, May 2, 2014):
Nigel Farage’s UKIP has opened up a clear lead in the run up to next month’s elections for the European Parliament. According to ComRes, 38% of Britons certain to vote say that they would cast their ballot for the party, compared to 27% who would vote for Labour, 18% who would vote for the Conservatives and 8% who would vote Lib Dem. UKIP is damaging Conservative hopes as 67% of 2010 Tory voters are now saying they would vote for UKIP. However, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns for the euro-skeptic party, as – somewhat expectedly – almost one third of Britons think that UKIP is a racist party; even as 48% believe UKIP has sensible policies.
– Nigel Farage: I admire Vladimir Putin (Guardian, March 31, 2014):
Ukip leader praises Russian president’s handling of Syria crisis, but describes Germany’s chancellor as ‘incredibly cold’
Nigel Farage has named Vladimir Putin as the world leader he most admires, praising the Russian president’s handling of the crisis in Syria.
But the Ukip leader had less kind words for Angela Merkel, describing the German chancellor as “incredibly cold”.
He also said he saw little to choose between the leaders of Britain’s three major parties, telling GQ magazine he does not give a damn whether David Cameron or Ed Miliband wins next year’s general election.
– Nigel Farage Booms “Europe Is Now Run By Big Banks, Big Business, And Big Bureaucrats” (ZeroHedge, Jan 15, 2014):
With Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras settling into his role as EU President, UKIP’s Nigel Farage stunned the “Goldman Sachs puppet” with a 150-second tirade of truthiness he has likely never experienced. Farage sacrastically remarks how Greeks “will be dancing in the streets” at Samaras’ ‘successful’ negotiation on MiFiD reminding him that “60% of youth are unemployed and the neo-nazi party are on the march.” Europe is now run by “big business, big banks, and big bureaucrats,” Farage goes on, suggesting the smarmy-looking Samaras should “rename his party from New Democracy to No Democracy.” People do not want a United State of Europe, the outspoken UKIP leader explains, they want a “Europe of sovereign states,” and concludes ominously, “the European elections will be a watershed.”
…And you come here Mr Samaras and you tell us that you represent the sovereign will of the Greek people? Well, I’m sorry, but you’re not in charge of Greece, and I suggest you rename and rebrand your party – it’s called ‘New Democracy’, I suggest you call it ‘No Democracy’.
Because Greece is now under foreign control. You can’t make any decisions, you’ve been bailed out, and you’ve surrendered democracy, the thing your country invented in the first place.
And you can’t admit that joining the euro was a mistake – of course Mr Papandreou did that didn’t he, he even said there should be a referendum in Greece and within 48 hours, the unholy trinity (troika) that now run this European Union had him removed and replaced by a ex-Goldman Sachs employee puppet.
We are run now by big business, big banks and in the shape of Mr Barroso, big bureaucrats…

• Joint debate: European Council meeting (22 May 2013) – tax fraud and tax havens
“Thank you. Well there is a great degree of unity here this morning, with a common enemy – rich people, successful companies evading tax, which of course is a problem.
Avoiding tax, which is not illegal, but it gives this whole chamber this morning a high moral tone.
And as Mr Barroso says it is all about the perception of fairness. Because there is the added bonus of course that it drives a wedge between the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, and the Caymans.
But before we declare our virtues, perhaps we ought to look just a little bit closer to home.
And I hope that the taxpayers all over Europe listen to this. If we look at the EU officials who work for the European Commission and the European Parliament, the highest category [the most common grade is AD12] are people that earn a net take home pay of just over 100 thousand pounds a year. And yet under EU rules they pay tax of 12 per cent. It is tax fraud on an absolutely massive scale.
And Mr Barroso I would say to you, how can that be deemed to be fair? How can people out there struggling – the 16 million people unemployed in the eurozone – how can they look at these institutions, not only paying people vast sums of money but allowing them tax and pension benefits on a scale not seen anywhere else in the world? So I suggest we have a bit less of this high moral tone.
And what have these officials given us? Well, they were the architects of the euro, which is a complete disaster. Their obsession with global warming which chimes very strongly here means we are despoiling our landscapes and seascapes with these disgusting wind turbines and driving up energy prices.
But never let it be said that I cannot acknowledge success when I see it. And I am sure the citizens of Europe will all clap and cheer loudly that the grave, mortal danger of olive oil in dipping bowls has been removed by the officials. Well done everybody.”
– Godfrey Bloom of UKIP: Central Bankers Should be Arraigned as “War Criminals” (Liberty Blitzkrieg, May 7, 2013):
Coming off the heels of a fantastic performance in recent local elections, the UKIP under the leadership of Nigel Farage continues to make waves in both the UK and the Continent itself. In this case, I refer to a recent powerful performance at the European Parliament courtesy of Godfrey Bloom (UKIP), member of the European Parliament.
For many years, I have stated that Ben Bernanke was and is committing crimes against humanity, and would one day stand trial much like the war criminals at Nuremberg. It appears I am no longer alone in echoing such sentiments, as Mr. Bloom has just done so before the European Parliament.
I once said that Nigel Farage is Category 5 political hurricane. That hurricane has landed.

– ‘EU Parliament no better than banana republic’ with PR campaign (RT, Feb 8, 2013):
As eurozone leaders lock horns over the budget deal, speculation is rife the EU is set to invest millions in a PR campaign against online critics. It puts the EU Parliament on a par with so-called ‘banana republics’, MEP Nigel Farage told RT.
“The words ‘legal’ and ‘European Union’ don’t fit together. Nothing matters here, there are no rules,” says the UK Independence Party’s Nigel Farage of the EP plan to spend huge sums of taxpayer money on social network smear campaigns against those who speak out against it.
