Farage: ‘The European project is beginning to die’

“If you’ve got the courage you should lead the Greek people out of the eurozone, with your head held high,” said British MEP Nigel Farage (EFFD).

Discussing the Greek crisis in Strasbourg on Wednesday, Farage urged the Greek government to “get back their democracy” and “the control of their country”.

“Give your people the leadership and the hope that they crave,” he added.

Also addressing the European Parliament in Strasbourg, National Front leader Marine Le Pen told Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras that “you cannot get your people out of austerity unless you’re allowed to escape from the Euro”.
