LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – In the heart of Britain’s anti-Brexit capital, only Nigel Farage and his band of Brexit brothers and sisters could have organized a political rally so electric it began – at times – to resemble those of President Donald J. Trump’s from the 2016 presidential campaign period.

Klaus, an historic figure in Eurosceptic circles, was the icing on the cake of an event otherwise made noteworthy by rip roaring speeches from Widdecombe and Farage, and a logistical and organizational feat scarcely ever seen in British politics before.
“He’s the grandaddy of Euroscepticism,” Farage told Human Events of Klaus after the rally, as staff and friends tucked into scotch eggs and gin and tonics at a West London pub – very Brexit.
