Farage: After my latest Strasbourg speech, even the Greeks want to join UKIP

Some, of course, are questioning how dare I say such mean things to their Prime Minister.

But the majority seem to be coming to me for an alternative voice to the political establishment in Greece which is either tied to the Euro or dangerously extreme.

Most meaningful to me, though, are the emails, tweets and private messages I am getting from the Greek people thanking me for what I said in Strasbourg that day.

Just as UKIP is detested by the establishment and gets support from real people in the UK, that same enthusiasm is spreading across Europe.

Our Head Office reported to me that they’ve taken many calls from Greeks wanting to join UKIP. We have an overseas branch, we are delighted to tell them.
