Nigel Farage: The UK Are Being Taken For "Mugs" By The EU
Nigel Farage has taken a swipe at the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker after he claimed that Brexit will not come "at a discount or at zero cost" for the UK.
Nigel Farage has called for the government to get tougher on the European Union after European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has warned the UK it faces a "very hefty" bill for Brexit.
In a speech to the Belgian Federal Parliament he promised that Brexit will not come "at a discount or at zero cost" and reports suggest the UK could have to pay the EU up to £51billion after Britain's exit talks start.
Farage said: "Isn't it bizarre that we pay all this money in so that the Germans can sell us lots of motor cars and the French can sell us champagne and wine. Oh and by the way they can regulate and they can overrule us.
"We've literally be paying for Brussels to take away our independence and much of our business. We have been the mugs in all of this and it's clear to me that Jean-Claude Juncker thinks we're going to go on being mugs.
"I'd rather put that to a stop to it."
