Jackson, Mississippi – UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage addressed a 10,000+ strong crowd at the Coliseum in Jackson, Mississippi, telling them to “put on their walking boots” and urging them to form their own “People’s Army” to defeat the U.S. political establishment.
Mr. Farage – who led his party (UKIP) to victory in the 2014 European Parliamentary elections, to a whopping 4m votes in the 2015 UK general election, and mostly importantly, to Britain voting to leave the European Union in 2016 – has used the “People’s Army” moniker to describe his party’s supporters for years.
Introduced by Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump, he told the crowd that UKIP and Brexit campaigners had defeated the UK political establishment including the big banks, the corporations, the political classes, the pollsters, and the “liberal elite” by talking to people about controlling their country, their borders, and having self-respect for themselves.
He hit out at U.S. President Barack Obama, who visited Britain during the campaign and threatened to send the country “to the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the United States if Britain voted for Brexit.
