NIGEL FARAGE dismantled Tony Blair’s dire predictions of the UK post-Brexit economy and said Brexit is winning “all over the European Union”. Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage dismissed Blair’s proposal of a second Brexit referendum at the end of the negotiations

saying the former Prime Minister was wrong about all his past predictions. Speaking in an interview with Euronews, he said: “The dream of Brexit isn’t just winning in the United Kingdom, it’s winning in Catalonia, Hungary, Poland and all over the European Union as

we speak. “There is a major historic change that I believe we’re not even in the middle of. “Blair bases everything on a series of economic predictions and I would just point out he was wrong about the Exchange Rate Mechanism, he was wrong about Britain joining the

euro, he was wrong -albeit non-economic- about the war in Iraq. “People like him in the referendum saying dire things will happen, we’ve just finished the year of 2017 with growth higher than predicted, with manufacturing production at the highest for 30 years,

foreign direct investments at record levels. “I think Britain is doing pretty well.” The UKIP MEP flew to Brussels to meet EU Chief negotiator Michel Barnier to have a conversation about Brexit ahead of the start of the trade talks. Mr Farage demanded the meeting after

the EU Chief agreed to meet with many Remainers such as Sir Nick Clegg, Lord Adonis and Kenneth Clark, last year. In an interview with Freie Welt TV, Mr Farage condemned EU representatives for their disrespect of the British people. He said: “Logic says that the

European Union should recognise a sovereign democratic will of the British people and respect it. “They don’t. Mr Verhofstadt, who is the European Parliament’s chief negotiator, deplores the decision. “Mr Juncker’s right-hand man, Martin Selmayr, said last week that

British people are stupid. “You know, we’re not very keen on being talked to like this.”
