MUST SEE: Nigel Farage rips into Brussels bureaucrats who never had a real job: “You're not laughing now, are you?

StaffRebel Columnist

Nigel Farage was at his finest today when he unleashed a thunderous assault on Brussels bureaucrats in front of the EU Parliament.

The aftermath of the Brexit vote caused Farage to open with the line, “You’re not laughing now, are you?”

After a brief chorus of boos from those opposing Farage, EU President Martin Schulz told them to shut up. “One major quality of democracy is that you listen to those even if you don’t share their views,” he said.

“Isn’t it funny, you know 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 – well I have to say – you’re not laughing now are you?” Farage barraged.

“But the biggest problem you’ve got and the main reason the United Kingdom voted the way that it did is you have – by stealth, by deception, without every telling the truth to the British or the rest of the peoples of Europe – you have imposed upon them a political union,” he added.

Farage: “Let June the 23rd go down in our history as our INDEPENDENCE DAY”

After a few other points, Farage attacked those in the EU for never having a real job in their lives.

“Now I know that virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in your lives or worked in business or worked in trade, or indeed ever created a job,” he blasted to a series of jeers.

After concluding his speech he sat down to one of the biggest grins you've probably ever seen on a politician's face.

If this is the price of unity, Europeans are wise to divide.

LOL. Un accountable, overbearing bureaucrats who lord over a rubber stamp European “Parliament” (making our extremely PM-centric system blush) is what you call a “strong and unified Europe” Jay?

Drew, you know some French, yes?

Well said sir. Jay he is far smarter than you will ever be.

Canada is certainly the place to find a Frenchman like “Nigel Farage”. Europeans used to poke fun at people with a foreign name. Monsieur Farage has shown to Britain and to Europe that nationalism does not depend on loyalty.

We desperately need a Nigel Farage in this country. If we had someone with half the balls that he has to lead the Conservatives we would destroy Trudope and the rest of his socialist followers.

When asked how he knew the sky was falling chicken little responded “I know the sky is falling because it hit me in the head”. The Dow 30 was + 269.48 and the TSX was +152.90 to which he reluctantly admitted “I guess the markets always tend to overreact and I shouldn’t confuse bird shit with liberal spin although the there are parallels”.

You have a laugh at his expense when you say: “Nigel Farage was at his finest today”.

As in the photo, he looks idiotic, and out of place altogether.

The cat that swallowed the canary? I do not know.

Certainly the laughs of those who believed in a strong and unified Europe have been silenced this past week.

Anyone but O’Leary, or Trudeau, or Mulcair, or Green or any other globalist loving progressive. We need a Farage. Is there not one person in Canada with enough fire in is belly to correct the course of this country? Is there not one person in Canada who is willing to stand on principle and show the courage to lead? Have we reached the tipping point where public sector unions and special interest groups rule the day? Who will bail us out when the economies of Ontario and Alberta fail as they most surely will. Who will support the retards who voted in these Liberal, NDP, socialist douchebags when they have sucked the economies dry? I look forward to the day when the collapse comes and teachers and bus drivers and government employees are rioting because their pensions are cut. I will cry Grecian crocodile tears for them as I eat my cat food for lunch in my unlit hovel because I couldn’t afford my taxes, hydro, water, health, breathing, haircut, food, sleeping, waking, hearing, dressing, pet, drinking, working, driving and any other fucking confiscatory tax imposed upon someone for just being alive. Now we pay millions if not billions of dollars to support immigrants to this country as a feel good moment for the current PM and his followers. I say we strap them all onto the blade of an industrial wind turbine and let them see what failure looks like in 360 degrees.

There’s an odd mix of cheers and jeers from a crowd of bureaucrats that should universally hate him since he is threatening their livlihoods. Perhaps some of them realize that the jig is up. Lots of British politicians are good public speakers, which is why British Parliament is actually entertaining to watch, unlike our sorry excuse.

Belgian bureaucrats who have never worked a day in your lives, meet Justin Trudeau who has also never worked a day in his life.

Jim Clark—- Great Summery, You are right on.

I watched this speech three times. This man is a great leader. We have Farage. Now we need Trump and then O’Leary and we can kick out all the muslims and all the illegal Mexicans and WE WILL HAVE CANADA, AMERICA, AND BRITAIN BACK AGAIN.

Bombings gon be starting here in Canada soon. Many will die and Pierre Trudeau’s semen stain will have endless excuses. Anger will grow exponentially. WE WILL WIN.

O’Leary 2019

Nigel Farage My new hero, i do love it when people are not afraid to speak the truth and to hell with political correctness.

Won’t see this clip on The National with Peter Mansbridge.

Interesting to see Martin Schultz reminding those present to maintain the facade of democracy.
I wonder how many years it has been since their last reminder?

The greedy stealers and rip-off artists in the eu parliament are quite upset at the people voting to rid UK of this eu scourge they have been subjected to for many years. We, in Alberta, have to do the very same thing with ottawa-ripp-offs and leave calling ourselves Western Canada. Unfortunately, we have 3 years of this traiteress witch at the helm who is bent on destroying us and doing it with a smile, pure evil. If natural gas prices keep going up like they are doing now, damn near $3.00, what the hell will it be like when this evil nutley brings in this garbage carbon tax and increases by $1.00 more, good God, we will be in the middle of winter FREEZING IN THE DARK. PURE EVIL. PENSIONERS MAKE $1,100.00 OR LESS AND YOUNG FAMILIES ARE GOING TO HURT LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW.
