‘You’re a coward!’ German MEP attacks Farage and says Brexit will bring ‘disaster’ to UK

17 May

In his speech today he mocked eurosceptic leaders who met in Koblenz, Germany, at the start of this year to discuss their strategy for upcoming elections across the bloc. 

The summit brought together Ms Le Pen, Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders, the then chief of Germany’s AfD Frauke Petry and Matteo Salvini of Italy’s Northern League. 

Mr Weber blasted: “We look also, of course, in the context of the Brexit negotiations to the situation in Europe. 

“Might I remind you that at the beginning of the year in Koblenz we saw the right, the anti-Europeans, the alt-right saying that this was going to be the end of the world, the birth of a new world, the birth of an entirely new set up.” 

Referring to defeated French presidential candidate Ms Le Pen, he mocked: “ She’s not here today, many of her supporters are not here today either, but I would like to say that we should cast our thoughts back and think what we were told would happen and see what is actually happening now in 2017.”
