No matter what happens in Europe, you can be sure Nigel Farage will take it as a sign of his Europhobic ultra-nationalism is what people really want. In an article run by the Telegraph, the UKIP leader rejoices at the fact that many Greek No-voters were young:
The result is a tired, stumbling European Union that is dying on its feet before our very eyes. Credibility for the project is fading fast as citizens right across Europe awaken to the reality of its authoritarian instincts that seek to run roughshod over public opinion.
With younger generations now turning against the EU project, we can see support for the EU’s dream of a United States of Europe fading fast. An outdated European Union has been found out and rejected emphatically by young Greeks in the 21st century.
It is all too clear to see why: both the euro single currency and the European Union itself have done great harm to the prospects of young people who are now realising that we do not need a single currency or a political union to be friends, neighbours and trading partners. Far more important than this European Union is the concept of national democracy, of which this Greek referendum and its result are a beaming example of.
This, however, is not even close to being the truth. The No-campaign was fought by populists with the very clear message that Greece should stay in the euro and at the heart of the European Union.
