Watch! Nigel Farage responds to Tony Blair during high-spirited speech

By Timon Dias

The people’s champ is at it again, speaking today at a UKIP spring conference in Bolton. Among other things, he reaffirmed UKIP’s revolutionary character and its imperative roll in 2016’s global populist uprising. But, responding to today’s biggest UK story, he dished out a few at Tony Blair (from 05:40 onwards), who today called for the people of Britain to rise up and prevent Brexit, no less.

“(…) All of which, I think, makes it all the more amusing to see that Tony Blair is standing up today and saying that the British need to rethink Brexit. He seems to think we’re going to change our minds. He clearly hasn’t grasped, that if that referendum was held tomorrow, the margin would be at least three times bigger than it was during June last year. Blair is yesterday’s man.”

And indeed, as The Telegraph’s columnist Asa Bennet describes: if anything, Blair’s arrogant shenanigans are a blessing for the Leave camp. He can only further popularise the anti-establishment movement.

    At its deepest level, warts and all, this is about Western culture. Said defense is claimed to be racist. So be it. It needs defending if humanity is to continue progressing.

    Nigel Farage is the best politician on the British scene. Let’s hope he becomes Prime Minister of the UK.

    Gatestone Europe, please keep posting Nigel Garage speeches.

      Nigel Farage, please come to Canada before it’s too late for our country.

    Tony Blair may be “yesterday’s man” but the damage he did while in office lives on today and will continue to be a factor for decades to come.

    It was Tony Blair who opened the floodgates to large scale immigration to the UK from Muslim countries.

  • Nigel Farage, the Oliver Cromwell of our times.
