Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has delivered a brutal assessment of the EUs top nominee for president, claiming that she has ambitions to build an “updated form of communism,” and branded Macron as a new “version of Napoleon.”
In the wake of Ursula von der Leyens last-ditch pitch to politicians in the European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, Farage unleashed a damning verdict on the credentials of the EU Councils top nominee for Commission president.
The Brexit Party leader warned that von der Leyen was a “fanatic for building a European army,” who will make NATO redundant or at the very least a diminishing military influence on the world. Farage also suggested that her main objective, if officially elected, would be to create an EU that will make nation-state parliaments irrelevant.
She wants to build a centralized, undemocratic, updated form of communism.
It wasnt just von der Leyen that felt Farages fury, as French President Emmanuel Macron also came in for a drubbing over his public appearance at Bastille Day on Sunday.

Earlier, von der Leyen had revealed during her speech that she was prepared to extend the UKs exit from the EU beyond the October 31 deadline if there was “a good reason” to do so. Her comments prompted howls of derision from pro-Brexit members of the European Parliament.
