British sovereignty best served by UK becoming 51st state, says Farage

BRITISH sovereignty can only be saved by the UK becoming part of the United States, Nigel Farage has claimed.

Farage, who believes that as Donald Trump’s best mate he is perfectly placed to serve British interests that coincide with Trump’s, says only America can stop Britain being engulfed by the monolithic power bloc of the EU.

He continued: “To survive as an independent nation we need a functioning economy and army and sadly, after the damage that will be done to our nation by Brexit, we will have neither.

“But under the proud wing of the American eagle we can retain everything that makes us British – speaking English, bland food, bombing the Middle East – without all the political fuss.

“We’ll still have the power to decide on the issues that really matter to Britain, like the legality of fireworks and choice of official state bird, while boring bits like taxation and foreign policy are passed upstairs.

“Sadly we’ll lose the NHS and the BBC, those great Marxist institutions, but nothing else bad can happen to us because we’ll all have guns.”

Brexit voter Martin Bishop said: “You’d think, based on everything I’ve said for the last ten years, I’d be against this. But surprisingly no.”
