Democracy at Work
Despite all the powerful forces working to reverse the leave the EU vote, democracy has prevailed as our MP’s voted overwhelmingly to give the Government power to trigger Britain’s split from the European Union.
Mr Farage was quickly inundated with congratulatory tweets after he posted a message shortly after the Commons backed the historic European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill by a majority of 372. The former UKIP leader, who strongly campaigned for Britain to leave the EU, tweeted: “I never thought I’d see the day where the House of Commons overwhelmingly voted for Britain to Leave the European Union.” Well, congratulations Nigel that day has come.
Within minutes of the historic vote calls were coming in for Nigel to be honoured in recognition for his part in the vote with one enthusiastic supporter hailing him “Lord Farage of Brexit”.
