Farage: Bypass EU Bully Boys
Speaking on his LBC show this morning, Nigel Farage has said that the only way to beat the EU bully-boys may be to “go around the back” of the European Commission and instead talk to leading EU Industrialists:
What perhaps we ought to try to do – maybe it is too late – or at least, what we should have tried to do – is to go around the back the European Commission and get away from the glass and steel structures with the tens of thousands of bureaucrats.
I’m very struck that the French wine producers, German car makers, Belgium chocolate manufacturers – they don’t want their relationship with their best export market messed up.
Is it too late to try and get the Paris farmers to tell Macron if you go with Barnier if you hurting us.
However, Lord Digby Jones, a leading Brexiteer businessman said that the success of this strategy would depend on persuading big business backers of the Remain campaign to support it. Mr Farage’s comments come ahead of a series of keynote speeches from Theresa May’s cabinet, outlining her roadmap to Brexit in which she is set to outline her vision for a post-Brexit Britain and to make the UK a “truly global, free-trading nation”.
