After decades of campaigning for Britian to leave the European Union, Brexit leader Nigel Farage delivered a dramatic, flag-waving, farewell speech to the European Parliament on Thursday.
“So this is it, the final chapter, the end of the road, a 47-year political experiment that the British frankly have never been happy with,” Farage said.
Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union will take place at 11 p.m. GMT Friday.
“What we proved is that the British are too big to bully, thank goodness,” he continued. “If we want trade, friendship, cooperation, reciprocity, we don’t need a European commission. We don’t need a European court. We don’t need these institutions and all of this power.”
“And I can promise you, both in U.K. and indeed in the Brexit Party, we love Europe. We just hate the European Union,” Farage added. “It’s as simple as that. So I’m hoping this begins, the end of this project. It’s a bad project. It’s not just un-Democratic, it’s anti-Democratic. And it puts in that front row, it gives people power without accountability. People cannot be held to account by the electorate. That’s an unacceptable structure. Indeed, there’s a historic battle going on now, across the West, in Europe, America, and elsewhere. It is globalism against populism. And you may loath populism. But I tell you a funny thing, it’s becoming very popular.
“If you disobey the rules, you get cut off. Could we please remove the flags?” European Parliament Vice President Mairead McGuinness interrupted as Farage’s microphone was turned off. “Resume your seats. Put your flags away. You’re leaving. And take them with you, if you’re leaving now.”
Undaunted, Brexit Party members continued to cheer and wave their flags as they walked out of the room.
On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck said, “Nigel Farage, who has been fighting this battle since the day he got into the EU, gave one of the best speeches I’ve ever heard. And you’ve got to hear the end, because … what the EU does at the very end is incredible. It makes the point. This is the shot heard around the world.”

Brexit hero Nigel Farage and the British just did to the EU what our founders did to the motherland centuries ago, except they did without a war. Farage delivered an AMAZING, patriotic, flag waving speech to the EU on the night before England leaves the political union forever. But what the EU does at the end of his speech is CRAZY.
