Happy Brexit Day!: Campaigners Celebrate Leaving EU After 47 Years

Nigel Farage has hailed today as a “massive victory for the people against the establishment” as the UK prepares to leave the EU at 11 pm.

“What happens tonight at 11 o’clock, we pass the point of no return,” Mr Farage said on Good Morning Britain on Friday. “Once we’re out, there’s no way this country will ever rejoin. This is a big moment in history.”

Happy Brexit Day!

While Brexit campaigners like Patrick O’Flynn criticised the left-liberal Guardian for calling Britain a “small island” on their front page this morning, by quoting George Orwell who said: “England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality.”
