As German Chancellor Angela Merkel fights for her political life while the immigration crisis theatens to split the coalition which governs germany, former UKIP leader and the man who did more than anyone to ensure Britain voted to leave the corrupt, failing EU, NIGEL FARAGE European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker – insisting he should take credit for the ‘catastrophe’ that is the European Union’s migration policy.
The former Ukip leader said the EU’s open doors on immigration has been a “complete disaster”.
Speaking in European Parliament on Tuesday, Farage said: “As citizens look on at changes in their communities that none of them ever asked for, governments will be blamed. But I think it is unfair that everyone is blaming Mrs Merkel for what has happened in Germany.
“Credit is due, I think, to the man on my left, Jean-Claude Juncker. It was he that opened the doors back in 2015 to a million people crossing the Mediterranean.
“So, I think, credit clearly is due to Mr Juncker for this catastrophe. As borders and walls are being constructed all over Europe, isn’t it about time that everybody here faced a couple of realities?”
Ms Merkel’s political future has been in the balance for several weeks, since her interior minister, CSU party leader Horst Seehofer threatened to take his party out of the government coalition if the country does not adopt a stronger stance on immigration.
With migration at the centre of discussion at the EU summit at the end of June, European Council President Donald Tusk urged Brussels leaders to get “tough” on migration, warning that “time is short” to resolve the crisis.
What a turn round from a few months ago, when Merkel and Tusk, with the boy Macron in France and Juncker the drunkard were trying to bully anti immigration government to fall into line behind Brussels policy and welcome all comers without any identity checks at all
