‘Stop whining!’ says serial whiner Nigel Farage to Remainers
Serial whiner Nigel Farage has told Remainers to 'stop whining' in the wake of the European election results.
The Brexit Party leader, who spent much of the campaign complaining about the lack of publicity he received and getting upset about a spilt milkshake, now has turned his attention to Remainers.
It was pointed out to him by Euronews that just 5.2 million backed the Brexit Party, down from the 17.4 million mandate that Farage once claimed he had off the back of Brexit.
But Farage snapped back: "It's funny, these Remainers never accept the results of anything - they don't accept the referendum, they don't accept the elections."
That's the same Farage who said before the referendum result that "in a 52-48 referendum this would be unfinished business by a long way."

Commenting on the latest European election results, he continued: "If you look at it with the Brexit Party, the UKIP vote, and the Conservatives - those who are committed to Brexit - and even the Labour Party, officially, are committed to Brexit. It's 58% of the vote versus 38% of the vote.
"Will they please stop whining?"
The Brexit Party leader used other interviews following the European elections to complain that Remain parties had "massively more publicity" than his.
