I am mortified. Someone take him out of there.

God, it is so embarrassing.

He is horrifically rude.

Fontella Tue 28-Jun-16 10:32:12

Are you watching online? Where can I watch it?

zippyswife Tue 28-Jun-16 10:32:14

He has just pushed the self destruct button.

Somerville Tue 28-Jun-16 10:32:42

And it just goes from bad to worse.

Insult a group of people and then tell them we're better than them and then say we could still be best friends??!

Somerville Tue 28-Jun-16 10:33:23

It's on the BBC news channel. I'm watching it online. You can start it from the start of the programme.

zippyswife Tue 28-Jun-16 10:33:33

It's on the bbc news channel. I've never been so ashamed to be British and part of this. I voted leave and am more regretful than ever (already been rightly flamed elsewhere but you're welcome to go ahead).

Sky News? just turned it on Marine Le Pen is talking now, what did I miss?

DixieNormas Tue 28-Jun-16 10:34:43

it won't play on my phone and ds4 is watching Tumble, what long earth has he said now

Great. It just goes from bad to worse.

I missed the very start, but I hear he was booed even as he stood up.

He insulted the rest of the chamber. Saying that most of them had never done a job in their lives.

He was told off rather mildly.

He then went on to say the reasons why the EU needed to agree good trade deals with Britain. These are that the EU needs Britain more then we need them. hmm Then he said that we can all remain the best of friends. shock

i think that was the final nail in the coffin.

FreeButtonBee Tue 28-Jun-16 10:39:03

I had to turn it off. I was going to kick the screen.

RaptorInaPorkPieHat Tue 28-Jun-16 10:41:37

Oh Jesus.

Awful awful man.

zippyswife Tue 28-Jun-16 10:43:43

I cannot believe what he has said. Suicide.

Tatiebee Tue 28-Jun-16 10:44:25

What an embarrassment.

zippyswife Tue 28-Jun-16 10:44:45

Never thought I'd hear myself say this but the DUP woman Diane Dodds at least has put it so much better.

Glitterkitten24 Tue 28-Jun-16 10:44:47

Soo embarrassing!!
He was smirking as he sat back down- he's playing the pantomime villain and loving every minute of it.

RaptorInaPorkPieHat Tue 28-Jun-16 10:47:33

He really doesn't grasp that you don't get a good exit deal by pissing them off.


Moonax Tue 28-Jun-16 10:47:38

Watching Our Nigel makes me wish I could divorce myself from the human race. Ugh. Way to help out, Mr Farage.

Somerville Tue 28-Jun-16 10:49:21

A Scottish MEP speaking now.

DailyMailEthicalFail Tue 28-Jun-16 10:49:31

Actually, I think they needed to hear some of that.

He pointed out that the reason the UK voted Brexit is that we have been slowly drawn into a political union that we didn't vote for and never wanted. And that other countries have been similarly deceived.

If his style of presentation was somewhat smug/childish/silly, well so was Junkers earlier?

Somerville Tue 28-Jun-16 10:50:33

He's asked for cool heads and warm hearts.

And reminded them that Scotland didn't let them down. (Also mentions NI and London)

zippyswife Tue 28-Jun-16 10:51:52

I don't get how he could possibly have thought was the way to behave? We need to negotiate a good deal now. How do you achieve that by being so vile and insulting.

BaboonBottom Tue 28-Jun-16 10:51:56

Junker was a knob earlier when he shouted at Lord hill. The Dutch lady was lovely and knew her stuff
