Farage predicts EU-XODUS

NIGEL Farage, one of the motivating forces behind Britain's referendum decision to ditch the European Union, has predicted more countries will leave the organisation.

In a triumphant speech to the European Parliament, where he represents south-east England, the leader of the UK Independence Party told the assembly its members were in denial.

"What the little people did, what the ordinary people did, what the people who have been oppressed over the last few years and seen their living standards go down ... they rejected big politics, and they said, 'Actually, we want our country back'."
