Nigel Farage wants to speed up the process for leaving the EU. According to the terms of the Lisbon treaty, a country’s referendum is not legally binding. When a Member State decides to withdraw from the EU, it shall notify the European Council of its intention by invoking article 50.

David Cameron today made it clear he won’t trigger article 50. It’s his intention to step down by October and delegate the activation of article 50 to his successor.

“They’re very worried and the worry is not the UK. The worry is that in Denmark, the Netherlands, and other countries around Europe, suddenly the opinion polls say the referendums there on staying members of the Union look like 50-50. There’s a feeling today in Brussels that maybe the project is about to collapse.”

In a June 28 flash interview with the BBC news, Mr. Farage said to agree with Mr. Juncker words to speed up the EU leaving process. The UKIP leader said the “period of indecision can’t be good for anybody.”

“I rather agreed with what the European Commission President, Mr. Juncker, said this morning. He said: – Look, you voted to leave, I disagree with it, I don’t like it, but I respect Democratic decisions. So let’s get on and implement it.”

Nigel Farage was mocked and booed by the European Parliament in Brussels while delivering his speech, especially when he accused the MEPs of being “in denial” over Brexit and of European bureaucrats never having “created a job.”

Jean-Claude Juncker has quarreled bitterly with Nigel Farage in the European Parliament, emphatically asking him “Why are you still here?”

“If we’re going to wait for a successor for David Cameron, further thinking, we’re not going to invoke Article 50 or start the serious renegotiation of our trade relationship later on this year. Actually, that is a period of indecision that can’t be good for anybody. We should trigger article 50, let’s get cracking. Let’s change our relationship with Europe, not be members of a political union, for having a sensible trade deal and be good next door neighbors.”

Mr. Farage pointed out to the fact every country in the world has easy access to EU’s single market.

“You can’t have access to the single market, we were told, without free movement or without paying contributions. Rubbish. Every single country in the world has access to the single market. The question is, what are those terms of access.”

The UKIP leader demands a free-trade agreement with the EU. He said both parts benefit from easy access to markets.

“We are the Eurozone’s biggest trading partner in the world. They sell us 70 billion pounds of goods every year, more than we sell them. There’s a German general election next year. If the German car industry thinks it’s about to lose half a million jobs, Mrs. Merkel will lose. In the end, economic pragmatism and tough negotiation will win us the right relationship.”

Mr. Farage About His Day at The European Parliament

“I just happened to be the pantomime villain of the day. They’re very upset about BREXIT because they want to build the United States of Europe. What I saw today convince me that the Referendum result was the right one.”

Mr. Farage Explained What Changed Since the Beginning of The Long Lasting EU Membership And The Type of Agreement he Wants to Negotiate With The EU.

“Forty years ago, my parent’s generation voted to stay a part of a common market. That gave us tariff-free access to the European market, in a world of high tariffs. Because of globalization, and change over 40 years, those tariffs are now so small that our cost of membership outweigh any benefits we get from it. We are better off with no deal at all. <...> The point about free trade, as opposed to membership of this political customs union, is when you trade freely with each other you just removed tariff barriers. You don’t do anything else. That’s what I want our relationship to be with the European Union.”
