Nigel Farage has responded to Jean Claude Juncker’s ‘State of the Union’ address, saying Juncker has ignored a “seismic political event in Europe” referring to Italy’s populist Government which poses a “direct challenge” to the Commission.
Farage went on to say “You talk about a ‘sovereign Europe’. What you are talking about is a deeper centralisation of power.
“It’s all about centralisation! Power, power, power!”

He continued: “You appealed to our sense of European patriotism, so why is it that patriotism at the nation-state level is considered to be insular, bad, nasty, xenophobic… and yet patriotism at a European level is a good and virtuous thing.”
