Verhofstadt: Brits Chose Brexit to Affirm Their Right to Be Stupid.
The UK finally left the EU’s institutions, with a deal, on December 31st, 2020, four-and-half years after the public voted 52 to 48 per cent to leave the bloc.
Speaking to LBC’s Iain Dale on Monday, Mr Farage rejected the notion that the UK was as “divided” as it was on June 23rd, 2016, pointing out that the actual proportion of Remainers who fully backed the European Project — “who wanted that flag, wanted that anthem, wanted people like [European Commission President Jean Claude] Juncker telling us what we can and can’t do” — was only “tiny”, and that many who voted to stay a member of the bloc did so out of fear of change.
Indeed, successive votes since the referendum — the European Parliament and the national elections — had demonstrated an increasing share of voters backing parties that pledged to deliver a full Brexit, defeating candidates advocating for a second referendum.
“The truth of it is that a very large number of people who voted Remain can now see that actually it’s more than possible for us to sign up to trade deals with the rest of the world, more than possible with a bit of will to come to, in most areas, a reasonable agreement with the EU itself,” Farage said.
Vad EU populistiska politiker tycker är vi väldigt medvetna om. Alla som tycker att EU är en korrupt lekstuga med diktatur stämpel. De anser att vi är korkade.
