In reponse to former EU Commission president Jacques Delors' (pictured) address
to the European Parliament today, UKIP MEP Nigel Farage
"Delors was unrepentant about the introduction of the failing Euro. He showed arrogance of the most staggering kind with his comment that 'the EU will allow us to better master history'.
"He fails to understand that all multi-national empires have a guaranteed end.
"He should study about the Austro-Hungarian, USSR and Ottoman Empires before he speaks again."
Nigel Farage walked out of the Parliament chamber during the playing of the EU's "national anthem" following Delors' address.
