Brexit Leader: 'Putin Behaved Like More of a Statesman Than Obama'
The politician who spearheaded the Brexit joined Your World to talk about UK's independence movement and the fallout from the vote.
Nigel Farage said that the referendum for the UK to leave the European Union wasn't decided by economic arguments.
"It was decided by a basic argument of sovereignty," he said. "Should we make our own laws in our own country, and crucially, should we control our own borders?"
He said that the UK's population was rising by half a million people every year just because of the EU's open border policy.
"People said, 'Enough. We want to govern our own country. We want to make our own laws. We want our own Supreme Court do be supreme and we want to control our borders.' And that now is what must happen."
Farage called for "a Europe of sovereign nation-states being friends together, not a false political union."
The Ukip leader also said that Russian President Vladimir Putin "behaved in a more statesmanlike manner" than President Obama did.
"Obama came to Britain, and I think behaved disgracefully, telling us we would be at the back of the queue...Treating us, America's strongest, oldest ally, in this extraordinary way. Vladimir Putin maintained his silence throughout the whole campaign."
