Christine wrote about how UK Independence Party’s Nigel Farage really let the European Parliament have it after Britain voted to leave the European Union last week. Farage was brutal in saying that his fellow colleagues are in denial about the failure of this legislative body, how they can’t do their jobs properly, and rubbed the results of the Brexit vote in their faces. He recalled how the body laughed at him for even considering a referendum on the UK leaving the EU. Well, the people of Britain had spoken: they want out.
During an interview with CNN’s Richard Quest, Farage commented on whether there are similarities between the Brexit vote and the presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in the United States. Farage said that Trump talks about issues that no one wants to talk about, and that a Trump administration would be better for the UK than a Clinton one. He also said that there wasn’t anything on Earth that could convince him to vote for Hillary Clinton (via Free Beacon):
“My problem in politics is far greater than Donald Trump’s,” he said.
“We literally have lost our sovereignty, lost our borders, lost our ability to regulate.”
The United States’ problem was illegal immigration, Farage added, while Britain’s problem was legal immigration.
“In many ways, you must hope he becomes president,” Quest said.
“Well, I think for the United Kingdom, I think Trump will be better for us than Barack Obama’s been,” Farage said. “Of that, there’s no doubt.”
“And against Hillary Clinton? Or are you not going to take sides at this early stage?” Quest asked.
“There’s nothing on Earth could persuade me ever to vote for Hillary Clinton,” Farage said.
“You sure you don’t want to think about that for a second?” Quest asked him after a pause.
“No, no, absolutely not,” he said, laughing. “She represents the political elites. It’s almost as if she feels she has a sort-of divine right to have that job.”
Mr. Farage, there are many here in the U.S. who feel the same about Mrs. Clinton. Granted, some in the Republican Party are going to vote for her, in doing so granting President Obama a de facto third term. Some people say he’s no better than Clinton, but there is something more appealing about a Trump White House working with a Republican Congress (I know maintaining that is going to be a fight) than a Clinton administration working with a Democratic one. One thing for sure is that the Second Amendment is going on the chopping block should Clinton win this November. Moreover, the Supreme Court could have a solid liberal majority for the next generation. We know what we’re getting with Clinton—and it should horrify any conservative Republican.
