Nigel Farage is everywhere. The man who has now become the face of the Brexit vote, spoke with Fox News and had a litany of interesting, honest thoughts – the EU project, economic trade, Russian President Vladimir Putin, US President Barack Obama, and the UK’s new found independence.
Farage said that the EU referendum was not decided by economic factors in the UK, but was simply a vote for sovereignty.
“It was decided by a basic argument of sovereignty.”
“Should we make our own laws in our own country, and crucially, should we control our own borders?”
“People said, ‘Enough. We want to govern our own country. We want to make our own laws. We want our own Supreme Court do be supreme and we want to control our borders.’ And that now is what must happen.”
The best part of the interview came towards the end, when Fox News sneakily tried to lump in ISIS and Russia as the major threats facing Europe’s existence – forgetting the fact that it was Russia, not the US, that had the stomach and strategy to take the fight to ISIS, while Obama was simply bombing sand with a priority placed on arming Al-Qaeda in hopes of overthrowing Assad.
For Obama, black Daesh flags flying over Damascus were of no concern, as long as Assad, the last secular leader in the Middle East, was gone.
The Ukip leader noted that President Vladimir Putin “behaved in a more statesmanlike manner” than President Obama did.
“Obama came to Britain, and I think behaved disgracefully, telling us we would be at the back of the queue…Treating us, America’s strongest, oldest ally, in this extraordinary way. Vladimir Putin maintained his silence throughout the whole campaign.”
