Some of you may have already forgotten about the historic Brexit vote, where the British people voted to leave the corrupt and failing European Union. Although it was only a few weeks ago, so much has happened that it seems like ages.
Yet the choice for the UK to leave the EU will have significant repercussions for that continent and the world. Nigel Farage, one of the strongest proponents for Brexit, will be attending the Republican National Convention. He will have some valuable insight to share with the delegates, lessons he’s learned from the historic move.
UKIP European Member of Parliament (MEP) and former party leader Nigel Farage will be heading to Cleveland, Ohio, next week to attend the Republican National Committee Convention. USA Today reported that Mr. Farage said the UK’s vote to leave the European Union (EU) holds lessons for America.
“Having criticised President Obama for getting involved in British politics, I am not about to endorse anybody…But I do know a lot of people in the Republican Party, and I’ll be interested to hear what Donald Trump has to say in his big speech,” said Mr. Farage who will be attending as an observer.
Donald Trump praised the Brexit vote, saying the British people took their country back. No doubt Farage will praise the move of conservatives to do the same in the United States. His unique perspective as a British leader will provide insight in how both nations should move forward in the coming years.
With the threat of terrorism abroad and the need to jump start both nations’ economies, his words will be of great interest to convention-goers.
