June 23rd will from now on be known as Independence Day in the United Kingdom (UK). Early on Nigel Farage, UKIP Leader, conceded defeat for Brexit, as early exit polls projected a loss. But when the votes were counted, and Brexit in fact won, Nigel Farage declared a ‘victory for ordinary people’. Honesty, decency and belief in the nation won out. Here’s the story from the Daily Mail:
Nigel Farage hailed a ‘victory for real people’ after the EU referendum delivered a stunning win for Brexit.
Projections show the Leave campaign will prevail in the historic ballot after stacking up votes in England and Wales – despite massive support for Remain in London and Scotland.
The Pound – which soared in value earlier after Nigel Farage admitted he thought Brexit had lost – has nose-dived against US dollar to its lowest level for 31 years.
Speaking at a jubilant Leave EU rally in central London, Mr. Farage said June 23 would go down in history as ‘our independence day’.
In a remark that could prove controversial after Labour MP Jo Cox was shot dead last week, Mr. Farage said the country was separating from the EU ‘without a single bullet being fired’ .
‘Dare to dream that the dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom,‘ he said.
‘This, if the predictions now are right, this will be a victory for real people, a victory for ordinary people, a victory for decent people.
‘We have fought against the multinationals, we have fought against the big merchant banks, we have fought against big politics, we have fought against lies, corruption and deceit.
‘And today honesty, decency and belief in nation, I think now is going to win.
‘And we will have done it without having to fight, without a single bullet being fired, we’d have done it by damned hard work on the ground.’
Mr. Farage praised Ukip donor Arron Banks along with Labour and Tory MPs and those of ‘no party’ who have taken part in the Leave campaign.
He went on: ‘And we’ll have done it not just for ourselves, we’ll have done it for the whole of Europe.
‘I hope this victory brings down this failed project and leads us to a Europe of sovereign nation states, trading together, being friends together, cooperating together, and let’s get rid of the flag, the anthem, Brussels, and all that has gone wrong.
‘Let June 23 go down in our history as our independence day.’
Way to go Britain! I hope this is an early indication for Americans and November elections. Like Britian, America needs to vote against big politics. America needs to vote against lies and deceit. American needs to vote against corruption. In other words, America needs to vote against “LyingCrookedHillary”. It is time to STOP BIG CORRUPT GOVERNMENT! Like the UK, it is time for ordinary people in America, to restore honesty, decency, and belief back to our great nation – The United States of America.
Thank you President Obama, for warning the UK they would be “back of the queue”….(in the back of the line) for any trade deal with the US if they chose to leave the EU!
What an insult! But guess what? You motivated the Britains to go vote for the exit!
