UKIP Leader and prominent 'leave' supporter Nigel Farage took it upon himself to barrage Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for supporting 'stay' in last week's Brexit vote.
In an interview with the Globe and Mail, Farage claimed that Trudeau was out of touch by supporting David Cameron's bid to stay in the EU.
Farage: “Let June the 23rd go down in our history as our INDEPENDENCE DAY”
“I’m afraid that the whole international political community rallied to Mr. Cameron and the status quo,” Nigel said.
He then proceeded to put things in perspective for Canadians and the importance of the Brexit vote.
“I mean I’d love the Canadian Prime Minister to tell you guys that you’ve decided to make NAFTA a political union, and that you are going to transfer all Ottawa’s authority to someone else, that you are going to have foreign courts overruling you,” Farage blasted. “How long would you last? A day? A week? And yet that’s what the Canadian Prime Minister was effectively recommending to us. I wonder sometimes whether foreign leaders genuinely understand what the European Union is.”

“Whatever Trudeau said, the fact is that the United Kingdom now has an opportunity to chart a much freer course in the world,” he added.
Farage also insisted that Canadians should be happy and supportive that Britain voted to leave the EU.
“I think Canadians should rejoice that the country in the world that they are closest to in every way, just got back its democratic rights, rights that Canadian and British people stood side by side in two world wars, fought and died for,” he said.
