Yeah it is funny but I've seen that clip used before in the same way.It's rather ironic that the EU looks curiously like a Fourth Reich isn't it?

Having seen footage on the news tonight of the infantile behaviour by MEPs ganging up and 'bullying' Nigel Farage I'm beginning to think we made the right decision to leave. As for the MEP from Scotland, fawning up to the same body of people .........

It's particularly odious when Euro-Sceptics compare the EU to the Nazis when it was Churchill's fear of UKIP-like nationalism pluging Europe into another war that prompted him to propose the EU in the first place. See video.
One of the reason's German is one of the loudest voices in the EU is because Britain continues to send people like Farage, Godfrey Bloom, Daniel Hannan and Roger Helmer who don't bother to vote on anything, or turn up most of the time to the European parliament.

It wasn't completely true when Nigel Farage said none of the EU Commissioners have ever held a job in the real world either. Apparently Martin Shultz, President of the European Parliament, actually owned and ran a small bookshop for 12 years !

Farage could just as well be slagging off the Tory Party minsters for not having had jobs as be could the EU. It's a meaningless extraction. The man stood up in the EU parliament and crowed. He stood there amongst 100s of highly intelligent people representing 28 partner countries and behaved liked a small child. The lack of maturity and understanding was terrifying. And he was representing the UK.
That speech was one of the most embarrassing things I've seen in my whole life.

Hear, hear Zebedee. I was squirming with embarrassment just watching him on tv. And he expects good trade deals from them? All he can say is German car makers will continue to want to sell us cars. Fat chance any of us will afford to buy new cars now.

6 years after the bankers threw the world economy to the wall - that is, 6 years of austerity for the rest of us to bail out the bankers, so they can continue to reap their astronomical lottery win bonuses - it was inevitable that the country would start blaming foreigners for their woes, and see the rise of nationalism.
I honestly can’t actually see any party really being that keen to pick up the mantle of government for the next decade at least, what a terrible legacy they’ll have. Just watch the Tories sit back, have 10 years off and then blame Labour for everything they’ve caused.
Iceland, on the other hand, jailed their bankers. Their economy, which tanked more completely than ours did, is now fully recovered. And they’ve got a better football team than us too. That’s what you have to put up with when you let people with socialist leanings loose.
At least we can rest easy in the happy knowledge our merchant bankers, Farage’s old work-mates, are among the best looked after in the world, and look like remaining that way indefinitely.

Outers promised that we would be out of it .
They did that so they could claim we were going to get rid of all the foreigners which was the only reason this exercise in witless mob rule has gone what we now all see to be the wrong way
If you did not understand this why did you vote ?
I notice there almost no-one left to defend this National catastrophe after only a week and sorry kiddies but this is going to get a lot worse . Can I remind you that every single one of my predictions has come true and in fact project fear has turned out to be project understatement.
No surprise , on the one had you had liars on the other you had the treasury the bank of England the Institute of Fiscal Studies and so on. I can take no credit ,anyone with half a brain could see what was coming
I squirmed with embarrassment to see Europe treated to that ridiculous little man Farrage being so ill mannered . “ You have never had a proper job”…… jesus are we reduced to that , what next “ I pay your wages sossiffer “
All the liars must pay for this starting with Maria Caulfield .
Remain until I die .

Like it or not, PN is absolutely right. Farage is an embarrassment to the British people, and he makes me feel ashamed to be British. We're in this mess because of Farage's UKIP party's continual bleating over immigration. Horrible trumped up little man. He'll get his come-uppance, soon hopefully.

This is all good , by the time the deal is being done the very suggestion this was a good idea will be the laughable sick joke it always has been and we can at least save what ,we can , services , pensions civil society.
