Nigel Farage predicts breakup of EU within 'ten years'
Mr Farage told LBC Britain has set the standard by reclaiming independence from the trading bloc and said countries such as Italy will have to leave the Eurozone in the future. The Reform UK leader added Brexit will not be reversed and the younger generation will begin to see the democratic benefits of independence from the EU.
Mr Farage said: "The Brexit wars are over.
"The bitterness, division the agony of the last four and a half years of much of our establishment trying to overturn the democratic will of the people, that is over.
"Just look at what is happening in Brussels, the Polish and the Hungarians vetoed the budget.
"You have got a Eurozone that is driving the south into deeper and deeper poverty.
