to farage[ brexit verb]
- Appearing on his radio show on LBC on Sunday morning, the former Ukip leader, Nigel Farage; who resigned at the beginning of July, argued it was imperative for people to learn languages in order to properly integrate into a country and has been interrogated and ridiculed about why he chose not to learn Flemmish, German or French while working in Brussels as a Ukip MEP.
at last..straight talking and common sense...well done Mr Farage..
“I don’t see how you can integrate if you don’t speak the language of the country,” said an LBC caller, to which Mr Farage responded: “I couldn’t agree with you more … I think the language is absolutely fundamental.”
“Just on that specific point, I was wondering why you spent more than twenty years living in Belgium and yet you don’t speak a word of Flemmish, German or French?” asked the caller.
“I speak a bit of French,” Mr Farage responded. “I’ll have you know Richard. I’m very good with a French wine list alright. I know my way round a menu.”
