'You may have crushed Greece, you ain’t gonna do it to us!' - VIDEO

Speaking during a Brexit debate in the European Parliament on Wednesday, the former Ukip leader attacked the European Union for its constant threats against Britain. 
 
Mr Farage said: “We can spend two years with this farce, there is a big, big world out there and I am beginning to think that perhaps Mr [Yanis] Varoufakis is right when he says about negotiating with the EU it is a technocracy that is desperately clinging onto its own exorbitant and illegitimate power. 
 
“You may have crushed Greek democracy two years ago, you ain’t gonna do it to us.”
 
Mr Farage also took Jean-Claude Juncker to task for leaking information about a private dinner with Theresa May to German media.
 
He said: “Imagine you invited a very important guest around for dinner and you’ve made all the preparations and there were some very important confidential conversations that needed to be had and you thought everything had gone well. 
 
“And yet within hours, your guest had told the outside world that you the host were deluded. 
 
“That you were living in a different galaxy and then all the contents of the conversation were blabbed to an opposition newspaper.”
 
Ridiculing Mr Juncker for claiming the English language was becoming obsolete on the continent, the Brexiteer continued: “And to add insult to injury you say the food wasn’t actually very good either and then a few days later, in a display of extreme petulance you even degrade the national language of the host. 
 
“Which by the way is looking a big silly because last Saturday’s extravaganza, known as the Eurovision song contest, saw 90 per cent of the songs sung in English.
 
“Now if you were the host and you’d been treated like that by somebody that you thought was important and somebody you thought you could trust I think you’d be asking yourself were you dealing with a reasonable person.”
 
And as the Brexiteer accused Mr Juncker of being “bloody rude” he was rewarded with a stern glare from the EU boss. 
 
Mr Farage continued: “Now I don’t know Mr Juncker, whether this is how you carry on in Luxembourg, I doubt it, because in any other part of the civilised world frankly that behaviour would be considered to be bloody rude and the act of a bully. 
 
“Well, I’ll tell you something your attempt to bully the brits through this negotiation is not working. 68 per cent now of the British people want Brexit to happen. 
 
“And all of that on top of a ludicrous ransom Mr Barnier wants that I’m told has now doubled to 100bn Euros. 
 
Mr Farage added if the Commissions “farce” continues, the UK would be forced to talk away from the table without a deal by the end of this year. 
 
“Either we get some grown up reasonable demands from the European Union or the United Kingdom will be forced to walk away before the end of this year,” he said.  (Express)
