Brexit Party MEP Alexandra Phillips rips into 'revolting' EU – 'It is anti-democratic!'

Ms Phillips claimed the European Union was “deliberately made to be anti-democratic”, admitting she was “revolted” by the Brussels political system. The Brexit Party MEP slammed the EU for their treatment of Greece and Italy when the economic crisis happened. She also told talkRADIO’s Mike Graham the entire European system was corrupt.

Ms Phillips said: “It is anti-democratic, not undemocratic but deliberately made to be anti-democratic.

“That is what I find revolting.

“When the massive economic crisis happened, the Eurozone crisis and everyone saw the way the EU treated countries such as Italy and Greece.

“Essentially saying to democratically elected leaders sorry because you’re probably going to want to leave the euro to devalue your currency and get back on your feet we can’t have that because it is going to threaten the project.

“We are going to have to remove you and impose such strident austerity.

“At one stage you had about 100,000 Greek families relying on food banks.”

Mr Graham added: “The streets were burning, the streets were on fire, there were riots going on.”

The Brexit Party MEP responded: “At the same time the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the EU.

Last week Alexandra Phillips slammed the European Union’s future plans during a European Parliament plenary session.

She said: “The vision for the EU over the next six months a simply astonishing, open borders with two more countries Albania and Macedonia and ambitions to keep the UK shackled to EU rules.

“Why on earth would we want to do that?

“If those policies were not bonkers enough you want Croatia to also join the failing single currency.

“You would be locking your country and your people inside an economic prison.”

Ms Phillips continued: “The Euro is the EU poster child for weak growth, high unemployment and stagnant wages.

“Don’t do it, keep the Kuna!”

“As Brexit has shown citizens want freedom, not being dictated to by a faceless super state.

“The UK is leading the way out of this fanatical democratically bankrupt project.

“I am telling you unless the EU can show the will to reform many brave nations will follow.”
