Farage Warns Tories: ‘You’re Next In Juncker Firing Line’


Former UKIP Leader Nigel Farage (pictured above) has warned Conservative MEP’s that their party will be next in Jean-Claude Juncker’s campaign against so-called ‘anti EU extremists’.

During his annual State of the Union address, in Strasbourg, Mr Juncker, the President of the European Commission, proposed new funding rules for parties, in a bid to thwart the growing Eurosceptic attitude around the political project.

The Eurocrat told a packed Hemicycle chamber, in the European Parliament’s French home they “should not be filling the coffers of anti-European extremists”.

Mr Juncker added: “We should be giving European parties the means to better organise themselves.”

The move was heavily criticised, Mr Farage exclusively told Express.co.uk, in Strasbourg, Mr Juncker’s declaration was an “assault on democracy” and must be stopped.

While outside the chamber, Mr Farage encountered Mr Campbell Bannerman, former deputy leader of Ukip and now a Conservative MEP, where he told his former colleague to beware of Mr Juncker and the European Commission’s assault. Mr Farage said:

“Wait to you see what they’re going to do, they’re doing it already!

“They are already closing down Eurosceptic foundations – you lot are next, you lot are next.

“If they are doing that already – and you ask them for points of law – it’s arbitrary…

“And when Juncker mentioned the words, ‘We don’t want to fund extremists…”

Mr Campbell Bannerman conceded his party was in the “firing line” from Mr Juncker’s “scary” attack on democracy.

Reflecting on Mr Juncker’s speech, Mr Farage told Express.co.uk he fears Brussels is poised to launch an all-out assault on European democracy.

He said: “I genuinely believe you’re going to see an all-out assault on genuine democracy across the European Union.

“We’re going for a full ‘United States of Europe’ – one strong president, a finance minister that should intervene in peoples’ economies, a strong European army, active foreign policy… More, more, more, in every regard.”

    It strikes me that anyone might be in Juncker’s fire line, if they start going on about Democracy. You will not ever hear the EU saying that they are against the idea of Democratic will, but you will see their take on what the system means to them. They re-mould it to their own idea of Democracy, and what comes out is a very mouldy mess. Put simply, Democracy does not live in the EU. When having to re-mould something like Democracy, it is necessary to get rid of the word in the title, and to then do the knife job in the text.
    It should be noted at this point, that here in UK/GB we don’t have real Democracy. For goodness sake, realise that we have a ‘British Democracy’, where many votes don’t count with our FPTP system. It happens that 30% or 40% is all that is required to win an election.- The 60% or 70% that is split over several Parties, just get thrown in the bin, along with a true majority of a vote. How is that possible to be called a Democratic election when the minority wins, over the majority ?
    The duty of UKIP with its new leader, and assistance from Nigel Farage, is to make Brexit happen of course, but attention to the voting system is just as important as PR can, for once, bring in a Government that represents the wishes of the people. Government may well be a coalition, but is that such a bad thing ? It has been seen to work well in other countries, and on a protracted time scale, so why not in UK/GB ? It would guard against extreme policy decisions, and with good, fair media coverage, the best Party would be increasing its following !
