MEP applauded as she exposes Nigel Farage’s hypocrisy in parliament

An MEP was roundly applauded in parliament after she exposed Nigel Farage’s hypocrisy as he sat meters away.

Dutch politician Esther de Lange told parliament not to “take his grandstanding too seriously” after she revealed she needed to “get something off her chest”.

Pointing to the former UKIP leader, she told those in Strasbourg: “This is a man who led his party and country to the Brexit vote – only the next day to admit he lied and tricked and jumped his ship and leave his party.”

She said: “This is not leadership, it’s a circus.”

Farage smirked as the Parliament applauded the MEP’s sharp intervention.

“I’m glad you’re here, Mr Farage” she continued, in a jibe at the UKIP group’s low attendance.

Turning to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel she said Farage doesn’t want to be “part of a ‘German’ European Union, yet he’s made sure two of his children have German passports!”

“This man wouldn’t know hypocrisy if it stared him in the face.”
