The European Union’s Guy Verhofstadt attacked Nigel Farage from his Facebook page after the ex-leader of UKIP took part in a protest on The Thames against the EU’s fishing policies.
Farage threw some dead fish into The Thames to try and make a point about how the United Kingdom should not be following disastrous EU fishing rules during any sort of Brexit transition period, and Verhofstadt expected his anti-Farage outburst to be met with endless backslapping in his own Facebook Remoaner echo chamber.
Luckily there were a few Brexiteer voices to try and set the record straight.
Verhofstadt accompanied this video with the comment:
Instead of throwing dead fish in the Thames, Nigel Farage should have done his job as a member of the fisheries committee in the European Parliament, as I told him already years ago!
As we have already pointed out, there followed sickening levels of sycophancy from those who seem to view Mr Verhofstadt as some kind of EU superhero who will simply stand in front of Brexit and stop it by yelling ‘stop it!’
Luckily, there were still plenty of people who were willing to look past the bluster and bulls**t and give Guy both barrels.
The UK’s voice in the EU Fisheries committee had no power ! So what was the point! The EU have exploited our fishing grounds for years, ruined coastal communities & businesses here! So you can all shut up about Farage!
‘The fisheries committee’ The EU Fisheries committee is a joke, maybe he got tired of being ignored by you undemocratic morons.
Guy. I wish he had thrown you in the Thames.
What a bully Verhofstadt is. I bet he is squeaky clean NOT. I am so pleased we are leaving this dictatorial organisation. Nigel Farage is is 1,000 times the man Guy is and it is clear he is jealous and upset because Nigel instigated Brexit!
All i see here is a lynch mob, that have been waiting in the wings for something like this that they can suddenly shout their mouths off at. Farage is for me a great mouthpiece for Brexit, and I hope he will continue to be.
The issue is the fact that Fishermen in the UK cannot fish for no more than a couple of baskets of fish, which they are restricted to by the EU, and you lot can only condemn Farage and totally miss the point.
This is exactly what the EU want. They make the bullets and you fire them, lol, get a grip people, its the fishermen we should be thinking of, viva Brexit.
Who the Hell is paying the EU’s wages? The United Kingdom tax payers are at the rate of £350 million a day plus what they are getting out of our sea. They are TRYING to get Farage out of the way because he is a threat to the agenda.
Maybe Guy needs to take a step back from this social media echo chamber and remember that the British people voted for Brexit and all that it entails, end of story.
