Europe News: UKIP leader Nigel Farage has scaled down his ambitions for the party and will now settle for his back garden seceding from the EU.
â€śOnce my back garden is out of the meddling influence of the EU it will be free from the grip of the bullies from Brussels,â€ť said Farage. â€śI shall be free to ignore the stifling EU fishing regulations and catch whatever I want from my pond.â€ť
â€śI shall also be able to grow all the oddly shaped fruit and vegetables I want. My back garden will serve as a shining light of independence amidst the murky, oppressive fog of Europe.â€ť
Addressing party members from the doorway of his shed, he predicted UKIP would cause a political “earthquake” when his garden secedes from the EU.
Farage is also demanding a full free and fair referendum on the continued membership of the EU for his front garden – and is urging his gnomes, cat and bins to consider forming a pact with anti-Europe Conservatives.
