Please know that most Britons are appalled by Farage and
i am so sorry you all had to listen to that despicable man. I am a Londoner. He has never represented my views on Europe!
Thank you for the support, I've never felt so let down by my country. Farage does not speak for us.
Really not interested. Who are you again?
a better man than you, cupcake
And yet an MEP?
Agree with almost all you say & I'm
But EU must see that it needs to reform quickly
Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
thank you for this & I'd like to apologise for the ignorance of the English as personified by Farage
On behalf of the 48%, thank you!
pity our politicians that create this crisis where as eloquent! Farage does not represent me
Fair play mate, your words resonate with me also
That's a nice blogpost. Thank you. And, for the record, a number of us Brits had our heads in our collective hands too.
Dr Penny Sarah Carey
thank you for your thoughts. Those were not the thoughts of all Britons on either side of the vote.
thank you for the response, us 48% appreciate it. Farage does not speak for us.
it wasn’t just London. The more people say this the more it will be believed. Other parts of England wanted to stay too.
please know Farage does not speak for Britain.
dignified. Please assure the rest of the EU that Farage does not speak for the majority of the UK - Remainers OR Leavers.
The moment Scotland realised Farage was coming back to the UK...Scottish independence went up 25 points.
The Ace of Knaves
thank you. Ashamed to be British. That oaf Farage is a disgrace
If you read one thing about
and EU politics, then make it

Can you tell which one of all the things about Brexit and EU politics that he writes about in the letter, that you mean?
He is married. He has a ring on his finger.
Thanks. Their speeches (in translation) are not easy to come by; some of the translators were very mumbly!
thank you for injecting a measure of dignity into the unfolding mess
In spite of FARAGE shambolic theatricals we know government is there to protect the weak and tobreinforce civil society
Please do jot cease to remark this. FARAGE TRUMP LE-PEN BORIS: they are in politics to see what they can get from it.
says a man with no interest whatsoever in the continuation of the status quo.......😬
there's a vacancy here for PM. Have you thought of applying?
Aisha S Gani
thank you for the response!
you need to read this.I think moving ahead lies in better education for everyone across the board.
Andbybettereducation Imeangettingwith thetimes. Sparkthecreativity inyouryouth that you have dismissed!
Christ I left the oven on.
(heart surgeon) is man amused at hearing Farage say "Most of you have never done a proper job in your lives "
Ian, Ian, European
Thank you! It is good to know that we haven't lost friends in the EU and in
just because of
you're responding to this unimportant picture but not to all the voices against
Sgt Arthur Wilson
that odious lying creature does not speak for me, nor millions of other British citizens. He is frankly an embarrassment.
Thank you for acknowledging that so many of us DESPERATELY value and want to remain EU Citizens *PLEASE HELP* our plight
Paul J Fleming
It is sad that such a cretin is insulting people in the EU, seemingly trying to alienate them against UK. :-/
For Fox Sake
, we appreciate support from friends across Europe and recognition that this man does not represent majority.
Thank you for understanding that this "person" does not represent the British people.
Young people in Wales also.
Thank you for this other rhetoric: allows us better understand what so great decision the Brits took, sending EU to hell..
thankyou for both the comedy and the insightful article...I'm an Englishman but also a proud European
In all honesty, Humanity doesn't need a bunch of knit-wits who have no technical backgrounds and cant solve human problems
A man handed a useless overpaid job by daddy having a go at a surgeon for not having a proper job
I felt the same and apologise for this massive fool being in any way associated with me, as a UK citizen. I despise him now.
In addition, 75% of people my age do NOT want to leave Europe. Our country has failed us... Please don't be too harsh.
75% of 36%.
thank you, thank you. & i stand with you, for as long as i am able, & against the ghastly politics of UKIP & the far-right.
Please know that farage doesn't represent most of us and it's baffling he is even in the EU commission :/
leave won tho, so he does.
Surely - on some level he does. Leave won!
He wasnt part of the official leave campaign ... hes there beacuse he won a seat in the last election
Not just London, Scotland etc: young people _nationwide_. Polls show majority of <50s voted remain. Great article!
It was a secret ballot - NOBODY knows the age profile of voters on either side.
Yeah, agree. I made a point of saying ‘polls show’ for that reason (but of course could be wrong).
Fair enough. I have just seen too many asserting what is impossible to know!
This is just fantastic, thank you so much.
as a Leave vote, thank you for your genuine and reasonable response
And me as well.
Low Budget Targaryen
thank you for seeing through Farage's facade that he truly represents all of us and not just his own lies
Occupy UN 4 Animals
dude I totally understand animal cruelty, I made my choices long ago.
is not EU. can't battle all fronts.
you was laughing your head off
You summed up the feelings of many of us.
Occupy UN 4 Animals
well said, ... also has the EU done anything to stop wild bird trapping?
EU was a way to get multilateral agreement and action. Unilateral action= less impact
animal cruelty is far from being a EU only drift. It's global.
actually I do care. 35 years vegetarian.
is not subsidized by anyone. Thanks.
i voted remain. please save us from these idiots?
and you want to be controlled by these idiots, 😂
As a heart surgeon could you give Nigel one And perhaps a brain
What a fantastic idea!
Thank you for speaking for 48% of Britain.
That awful man does not represent anything decent. We have been lied to and the EU used as a convenient scapegoat.
I need some new Farage adjectives. Suspect I’m over-using odious and toady.
how about 'cunt'?
Thank you from Wales, Dr Andriukaitis. That man does not speak for all of us here.
thanks - we also voted to
as well as
do cite these cities
also voted remain and I am beyond angry.
these cities didn't vote remain it was just a method of counting. Almost 50% wanted to leave neway
thank you for remembering us in other parts of the country.
And Brighton and Hove, don't forget us :)
Bath and Bristol too.
Bristol! basically any city that actually has experience of immigration and feels okay with it :)
did not let you down either.
I love farage!
why do you love Farage?
he's a racist shit mate. Don't be fooled by his hero of the common man BS
your in the minority.
please take him
do you love Trump too?
don't love him and don't hate him
then take him. We’d love you for it.
He'll been gone soon Dan... he seems to have wedged himself firmly in Trumps Arse.
With this little soviet propaganda style discourse, you convinced me even more that the brits voted correctly
don’t speak for me. It reminded me what an awful mistake Leave made.
Farage spot on as ever (With thanks to
You may want to investigate Mr. Andriukaitis's background... Just saying.
His&his coleagues' background is not relevant to us"little people"of EU, who feel ruled by non-voted for bureaucrats
You mean like the non elected politician we are going to have run our country in 3 months... Well done
Richard 48% Gadsden
You're accusing someone who was born in a gulag and persecuted by the USSR of soviet propaganda. Have some courtesy.
I don't know him,obviously it isn'tpersonal.As an ex-communist subject myself,I"m vaccinated against "courtesy"w.politicians
And if there will not be a change from regulation without accountability, EU as we know it will dissapear
I get The point when you mention Soviet why don't you check where he lived and why he was there between 1941 and 1957
not all British people fall for hateful and divisive rhetoric.
the embarrassment in the UK was palpable :-(
Thank you from London
Thank you, I am sorry you had to witness that extraordinarily shameful display by Farage yesterday. Please be assured that
Thank you and I'm ashamed that there is such high-profile ignorance on display here. What a farage!
Dude, are you serious?
Je suis Européene
You're as offensive as your little pal Farage.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts & for your support for those parts of the U.K. which strongly wish to remain in the EU.
thank you. Strange times for us here
I am so so so sorry for this dreadful man. He does not speak for me. I’m surprised you didn’t all spit on him.
thank you for the measured and intelligent observations.
thank you for seeing past his puerile, vitriolic words. He is an utter disgrace & not representative of most people in UK!
Thank you for this graceful and generous response on behalf of all of us who take pride in being European.
Thanks for the support and appreciation of our sense of humour. But young people in ALL of the UK wanted a different future.
Mark Paget Skelin
I only wish the UK had more upstanding and decent politicians like you, instead of Farage. We apologise for him
farage does not speak 4 all of those wanting 2 leave either sum of us did do our own research. Thank you.
Thank u. I too believe future of EU lies in social justice& security. My heart breaks to think UK might not be part of that
how we must look to the rest of the world is beyond me at the moment all v depressing
We're a country divided by lies. I hope Europe and the EU realises it still has many allies within the UK still.
Thank you from one of the 48% of Britain - now in despair & fearful of the future.
Sorry we turned the free money supply off
The games up, Vytenis—good luck finding another bunch of mugs for you to rinse
How much do we pay you?
I am pleased that you understand that he doesn’t speak for many of us. Thanks for this.
Well written, although I wish people would include Manchester 61% & Liverpool 59%, 2 major cities that also voted to remain.
A great piece, pretty much emulates the remain camp in this UK perfectly.
Speaking directly to the people of Europe from the 12th layer of Dante's inferno. The EU commission.
Scotland a Nation
An EU Citizen all my adult life. I paid prof fees into the EU & Still do so England has no right to remove me
Please note that millions of people in England & Wales also wanted to remain!
fancy taking over leadership of Britain?
thank you for your fantastic response, be assured you weren't the only person facepalming at what he was saying.
eilir jones M.S.U.
please remember the people of Wales
John J Oliver
I was not there and I to was hiding my despair. Such an embarrassment for so many Brits.
Mr Farage does not speak for me nor most of the people I know. He is an embarrassment. One day we shall be back. ☺
Thank you. I really enjoyed reading that.
You cannot be 'fully' with us when you have missed the mark on pretty much everything in regards to how we voted.
we appreciate support from friends across Europe + recognition that this man does not represent majority in UK.
Farage is the most odious man in Britain. I apologise to you on behalf of the UK for having to listen to him. Thank you.
The Angry Budgie
an image that sums up
How much for a 100 foot high poster of Farage reading 'This Man Does Not Represent Us'?
Why waste paper and printer ink!
The Angry Budgie
need to paint it on the white cliffs of Dover too! Failing that, on a tour bus to drive round Europe!
we in Scotland had our MSP with our views. Not Mr Farage who is really a joke to us in Scotland.
thank you - half of us wanted to stay in the EU and are behind you 100%-please understand that this is not a united decision
thank you for sharing. The last paragraph made me cry. The EU means peace, we need to grow together, not apart.
A man who claims to campain for British values, yet seems to display absolutely none.
Thank you for seeing that not all Brits agree with this (unfunny) clown, and I’m sorry you had to hear his bilious ranting.
Thanks for sharing! You're now featured on
Thank you. ❤️
Thank you for your thoughts. You represent the hopes of the British people more than Farage ever will.
thanks for your thoughtful sentiments. Farage is a disgrace to Britain
Thank you. It’s important to remember it wasn’t just “Scotland, Northern Ireland and London”. It was half of Britain.
Thank you.Farage's petty insults to MEPs show he was always serving himself, not UK. No hint of diplomacy,not an ambassador.
thanks from the UK
Jane B: 1 of the 48%
also voted by 70% to
. I am ashamed, humiliated, sickened by Farage's conduct. So sorry.
Sorry you have had to put up with this smug, rude, condescending, selfish example of the worst of our society
this is excellent by
Ça n'intéresse personne ce que vous pensez !
A very dignified comment on a terrible situation for many of us. Thank you
I am so sorry. Our politicians have let us down, and we have let you down.
Thankyou. Please continue to think of those of us who remain committed to Europe but live in England.
hate,racism,phobias etc. all a result,in my view,of decades of governments ignoring,denigrating,belittleing their peoples.
farage is a very rude ignorant man, similar to oswald mosley, a british fascist from the 40s..😡
Ça n'intéresse personne ce que vous pensez !
Chris Webb ️
thank you for seeing that a lot of the U.K. doesn't want this and the lies that that were spread being so clear.
I like the way you think.
Quite a story, you're sure you weren't just sleeping, as normal?
We are Celtic
Well said 👏🏻
please know that Farage appalls and doesn't represent very many of us. I respect his right to speak, but wish he would not.
He does not speak for me. Nor any of my friends.
Mad as BOF I was 48%
I thought you were crying with laughter. Please recognise that this man DOES NOT represent the majority of Brits
Thank you for speaking for the young, the educated and the professional citizens of the UK who overwhelmingly voted Remain.
Farage is a dangerous fool. The EU has to stop forcing citizens to pay for private banking debt and bondholder gambling.
Mr Vytenis Andriukaitis Ça n'intéresse personne ce que vous pensez !
Thank you. Many in the UK were deeply embarrassed at Farage's immature & offensive behaviour. He does NOT represent us.
Thank you. Farage does not represent me
we need your ethos in Westminster and we can't find it (or answers) anywhere in our politics. Appalled at what we've done.
Legend of Relda
Thank you. I am so embarrassed and angry that horrible man is meant to be representative of my country.
As you say,
represents so much of the best of Britain. Farage represents so much of the worst.
Thank you for this. Might you read this open letter to Jean-Claude Juncker (and MM Tusk & Schulz):
Farage does not speak for me or millions of British people
Thank you! Your integrity and compassion put our elected representatives to shame. I’m just sorry they set such a low bar.
trying to keep a straight face while watching the Talking Saveloy?
Would just like to say that we are not all like that dickhead.
Enjoyed reading your blog. Indeed there are many of us in the UK who are troubled by the rhetoric of Farage and others.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate these words. A million thank yous.
nice post. Please don't judge the whole UK too harshly due to the actions of this toxic buffoon.
Funny - that looks almost alike my reaction watching live the press conference yesterday as I heard about the extension...
Well put: thoughtful and supportive comments.
please remember it us not only he people of London who voted remain - the people of Oxford did too
Thank you on behalf of the millions of us who value our relationship with our European friends and neighbours.
And thank you, Carrie, for saying so
well said and shame on Farage. Lots of Brits living outside the UK also voted to remain!
I share your despair, imagine how I feel having to have this man represent me in europe, I cant put it into words.
Sneering and arrogance is what got us here. You guys need to learn some humility if you’re going to fix this
Many, young and old alike, across Britain are with you and we all held our collective heads yesterday. Thank you.
Lets hope this can be fixed somehow
I presume it was tantamount to hearing a totally deluded mental case, who had lost all sense of decorum, speak.
thank you! Many ppl, young or not, here in England want to see a better future too. Please stand with us against this wrong!
, the reaction from the EU elite made me sick! MORE EU! Quick! was the only ansfer, without selfreflection
no I'm not interested....
Saw the speech. At least you acted democratically.
that's how you feign despair, not hide it.
At least 48% of us just thought what a moron!
Your body language echoed what many of us felt at hearing such rubbish from a fool. It made me smile. Thanks.😃
The voice of rationality and sense - thank you
Well said! :-)
millions of UK citizens are fed up with controlling, centralizing, undemocratic closed shop EU, which will be dead by 2020
and while were at it you lot still won't listen, you reaction to this defeat is for full political/fiscal integration
Iain M Spardagus
Thank you, Vytenis, for your understanding. Farage & his cronies do not speak in my name but I apologise for his boorishness
Much appreciated! Why don't we call it what it was, a
Thank you. So many of us potentially have to pay this price of idiocy.
As from someone from London who voted remain I want to say sorry.
I am nearly 41 so not so young. Suspect quite a few older people voted remain as well.
Tree House Bookshop
Relieved that you know he doesn't speak for the UK as a nation...we despair of him too.
wasn't even part of official
campaign. UKIP represents few of us in the UK. Sorry about him.
This has become a viral meme on Facebook! :) Created by a UK organisation!!
what are your thoughts on scotland remaining in the eu?
Thank you for your support and please don' think for one minute that people like Farage reprssent us all...he doesn't !!!
Young people who wanted to remain in EU in areas that voted leave who want to see a different future. Don’t forget them.
I just hope our friends in Europe don't think Farage is representative of reasonable Brits, regardless of view
Dr Ian Hamerton
Eloquently put, although the face palm said it perfectly too...😉
Also, the majority of young Brits didn't even vote.
I take it your closely involved with the murder investigation, seeing as you know why Jo Cox was killed?
your reaction was the best. I too was doing what you was from behind my computer
As a British citizen I agree with your sentiments. Farage is an arrogant pompous egotistical ass, who is an embarrassment
As a British citizen who voted to remain I am tearful when I read this. We shall be losing so much.
Farage is a numpty. We wanted flexible limits on immigration as we value our green space, why didn't you concede to that?
The simple truth is, that UK leave the EU because of his ruling class, which is in great fear.Fear to loose grip,privileges.
young People want ? But They were to lazy to vote
Some Young people want. Don't close your eyes for the Young people that did vote.
You are 100x more honourable than an opportunist like Farage will ever be. Thank you for your support; best wishes to you.
please remember Manchester the cradle of the industrial revolution did not vote to leave our friends in Europe
The Farage behavior there was so insulting... .
You may be heart surgeon raised in Sov gulag who helped write constitution but have you written LIT
Citizen of Europe
Thank you! Farage does not represent me or the tens of millions of decent people in the UK who view Brexit with horror.
Ačiū ir sėkmės! (Hope I've got that right.)
thank you for this! mostly for your clear response to the tragic isolationanism and populism playing out its part.
thank you from those British business owners looking to develop and grow our European and Global partners.
yeah thanks for that...now keep your fucking nose out,we don't give a fuck for you or your doomed eu😅😅😅
Thank you for this, a very good read.
This 'thing' is exactly like Oswald Mosely and some of us know it!
thank you. As one of the 'indecent' 48% who voted to Remain please remember Farage does not speak for us.
My home city, Norwich, voted to remain. Thank you for your kind words. Farage does not speak for us!
he's telling you wot the a proxy think just you don't want to hear it knobber
David G. Paul
we’re sorry you have to listen to that bile spewing from such a vile “human” - we don’t all think like him fortunately
Europe's new Top 3 must tackle real fears: Rising inequality, fair access to public services & accountability
Not Al Murray
thank you. I was ashamed and appalled by Farage yesterday, and indeed the other Leave misrepresentatives.
40 Yards Scouting
That excuse for a man Farage does not represent us - your reaction to his diatribe was brilliant! Our cities voted stay! 🇪🇺
Farage talking about "independence" is an insult to the peoples of the Baltic states who know the true meaning of the word
eloquently said, Mr. Andruikaitis. bravo.
I must admit, I'm kinda disappointed you didn't just give him a good slap.
I'm not British-I just live in one of its former colonies. I still want to apologize for Farage's idiocy. So, sorry.
if only the brexit vote was just to kick him out of the house
1/2 Spot on: EU Health Commissioner
Europe's "future lies in social justice and security. This is the way fwd"
Farage doesn't speak for me or a majority of the
he is a parasite
as it says on yr pic, you are unstoppable. That's why we voted to leave you and your ilk.
I like this picture even more now I have read your words! Thank you
what a brilliant response. Thank you.
Dean Maxi Coupland
We sincerely apologise for what Nigel Farage said yesterday. He doesn't speak for us. Thanks for sharing the article.
Hahaha - I spotted and saved that at the time.
thank you 4 sharing this Liverpool also wants to stay in EU. I feel robbed of my EU citizenship by lies & deceit a sad time.
The arrogance of the smug, conceited and complacent passenger riding the EU gravy train for all its worth
thank you for your words and understanding I like many people in the uk are grieving . country of my birth is alien to me ..
This is fantastic, thank you.
nope, wasn't interested then and still not interested today 🇬🇧
nottingham wants in too help us
He does not speak for us in Wales.
voted remain. We hope that this can be stopped. We want to be a part of Europe.
thank you - the whole country feels like it's bereaved right now.
Hear, hear! Common sense and decency in all this mess, how refreshing. Thank you.
is an embarrassment to the U.K. And to humanity.
We Remain voters share your anguish!
Thank you, Sir. Calmer and wiser words than I've been able to muster.
well said sir. If you want to change the rules of the club, you change them from within, by finding common ground.
Thank you, sir.
has never and will never represent my views, or I trust, those of the people of Britain.
Thanks :) The majority of the future of the UK (sensible, intelligent, young people) want to remain - please bear with us
As did we all, please know that there are very few Brits who actually like the man, most think he’s a disgrace!
Dewi Osian Clarke
Thank you for your words of support. Farage does not speak for me. He is nothing but a vile preacher of hate.
Farage does not speak for me. Many of us truly value being part of the EU and are fearful of what lies ahead.
upside down head
Thank you Vytenis. Great words. I am so embarrassed by this whole affair.
thank you for sharing your thoughts. Farage does not represent this country. We are fools to have allowed him to be an MEP.
My Dog Has No Nose
Thanks for the insight and comments of solidarity. Is there anything you can do to save us from this nightmare?
thanks for recognising the different between, leave, remain and racism 👍🏻
Wise words. It might look like UK is overrun by self-serving liars, but lots of us still consider ourselves EU citizens.
the people that wanted Brexit don't know how to make it happen, and the people that do know how don't want it....
great stuff - do you fancy a job as Labour Leader, you can get a passport if your quick......
Thank you. Not everyone in England is like Farage. Half of us are nice.
Thank you Mr Andriukaitis. Apologies from the UK.
I'm so very very sorry about the madness
Nice words. And believe me, millions ALL over England voted to Remain, desperately sad we didn't win !
thank you for sharing your thoughts. We cannot forget over 16 million and 48.1% people in UK voted to
Complete rubbish. What the EU needs is reform, which has been rejected. If there is no reform it's not worth being part of.
Thank you, be assured that we are not all like this, and the North West (Liverpool and Manchester) also voted to Remain
Thank you for writing that. I for one am still distraught that so many Brits believed we'd be better off without the
this is one of the most wonderful things I have ever read. Thank you for supporting the British people
Out its out nazi-drunk.
Garage is a poisonous toad and most of us cannot understand how he came to hold any influence. Sorry. I want to Remain
you are widely revered in the UK! Keep on keeping on! X
so full of admiration for your words and your deeds.
Well said Sir!! Farage's smallmindedness should not be the defining narrative!!
agree wholeheartedly..thank you for your insight+encouraging words..as for Farage..embarrassed on his behalf😧
Yon birkie coof
don't let Farage and his golems steal EU citizenship from Scots. We didn't let the EU down
so sorry that you had to endure the ignorant tirade from this awful man and thank you for your gracious response.
Claim about NHS was made by Vote Leave, Farage was not part of that group
I feel grateful that you can listen to this ridiculous, offensive man & recognise so many Brits had their head in hands too.
I'd dearly like to know his stance re TTIP.
Thank you from all of us who still want to be part of Europe.
Please, please remember this idiot doesn't speak for all of us. We're so ashamed :( He's abhorrent. Don't leave us with him.
I support your thoughts, well said.
also 'Can't Sleep Farage will eat me' Simpson spoof.
we need a Farage as Grinch Who Stole Christmas meme, but I've no photoshop skills.
"Britain is changing. Young people ... want to see a different future" And many of us older ones too! Don't forget us!
Thanks for ur article. EU regs help make eating safe for coeliacs like my relatives + friends. Shd we worry?
I can only apologise for this individual. British politics are a mess and unduly influenced by the media. It's a malignancy.
A lot of us in Britain were in despair at the speech too, friend.
It was the most arrogant political speech I have ever heard. Apart from Trump, of course...
Your actions perfectly captured what 48% of the UK feel about this dreadful little man- thank you & good luck!
Thank you for your thoughts, your understanding of the situation puts Nigel Farage in the shade.
Oh Vytenis, thank you. So 48% of voters agree with you, but 52% don't. Do the maths, Move on. XX
Nigel Farage is doing you a favour with his honesty. Listen to him if the EU is to survive. Don't shoot the messenger
< 38% of us voted for Brexit. Farage does Not speak for Britain! We are proud Europeans.
kind humbling words, I personally (unrealistically) hope a way is found for us here who wish to remain EU citizens to remain
Rachel of Leeds
this odious man does not speak for the whole of the U.K. Please find some way to save us from this horror!!
Thank you, very thoughtful. I find Farage despicable and cowardly.
Can everybody please watch this
actually if you think about your own blog the young of the regions you say didn't want change. They voted for no change.
Young people throughout England want a future in the EU. It isn't just London.
Damn sir, you speak sense and truth. Keep doing this fine work.
dante & the lobster
sorry for exporting such a bigot to the European Parliament - what sad drivel Farage speaks.
i do not want to listen.thanks
Farage's behaviour brought shame on the UK. Absolutely disgraceful and ungracious. 48% of us disagree with him.
don't worry, we look like that whenever he opens his mouth
wise words are a few of the reasons why I Love and want to remain in Europe
Thankfully the majority in the UK voted for
& since we live in a democracy, that's what counts
and we await the next chapter!
please do not forget those in England and Wales who voted to remain in the EU (and share in your despair)
Steven J. Gibbons
as a fellow European and doctor, I apologise for this man's vile, childish conduct. Pls don't think we're all like that. 🇪🇺
I'm English, I voted remain... and I cringe every time Farage is given a platform to speak on, especially since Friday
Thank you. Please remember, much of the UK doesn't want to leave & in the light of all the lies, we are now the majority.
you looked exactly how I felt! Farage doesn't speak for all of us, especially those who want to stay. Sorry for that speech
Dr Zoe Norris
please don't think he speaks for all of us. I am so embarrassed Europe thinks he does right now
wise words. Thank you for voicing them
not sure money will not make it into NHS so whats the lie?
looking at the CVs of the rest of the commissioners F. has got a point.
that there was a plan at all
like the plan Dave had if he lost Resign and let others mop it up
Love you, Vytenis ❤
you overstate the role of the leave campaign. Folk know the EU. We've had >40yrs of it with no say. Course we wanted out…
Very well said indeed. Thank you for recognising that many of us are ashamed to be 'represented' by Farage.
thank you. As a despairing Englishman, your kindness brought tears to my eyes.
he should get facepalm lessons from
he's a horrible little shit and he no way represents most people in my country. I Apologise for his behaviour I'm ashamed
Mikkel B. Ottesen
Good read. But honestly, don't you agree that the growing EU-sceptisism is a sign the EU has been ignoring for too long?
... very, very well put. thank you
it's ok. We share the same view. Any tips on how to get rid of him? (Legally preferably...)
Helen Ross #ISL
Well said! Scotland is with you in your opinion of Mr Farage.
this man in no represents the views of all the population of the UK. Totally gob smacked by his behaviour
I apologise. This is not in my name.
Would you like to be our PM?
I should be out saving lives, not sat here on this gravy train ???
That stupid and boring post made me like Farage even more. He's offending all the right people.
Thank you for your wisdom and care.
A pretty level headed view, thank you for that
don't judge the English by Farage he brings shame on our nationality we are better than that
My sympathies. Very nice words. Tell me: Why are the EU- Institutions unable to explain the advantages of the EU
Germany: top news
"For those interested what I really thought while hiding my despair yesterday…" #1 in
The sentence about London, Scotland and NI saddened me a little, every area had remain voters, even if they were a minority
Thank you Sir. I'm deeply embarrassed that Farage has any place in public life, especially in the EU. I remain European 🇪🇺
You are a mere expert. If I ever need heart surgery I will ask Farage, Bo Jo or Gove to make up some lies about me instead
please please know that there are millions of us here that think Farage is a despicable man, and we are ashamed
Genius & Me
Interesting piece, also interesting 75% of my sons school voted remain in a mock ref. they are the future of UK
Thank you. I am a proud European, devastated that we 'bremainers' failed to make the case nationally. My city voted to stay.
thank you. Please don't think that awful man represents us, or that only Ldn, Scot and NI want to stay! (48.1%=16m people!!)
Well said, sir!

thank you for mentioning Jo Cox ❤
young people across the UK want to stay! Not just those in Scotland, Northern Ireland and London
Thank you for your eloquent article.
lied to the country and you summed up how most Brits feel now. Ačiū
Thank you. You have more grace, dignity and intelligence than Farage could ever muster.
Je suis Européene
Thank you from another part of the country that wants to remain - Bath and Bristol.

An Eloquent, Dignified & Heartfelt essay sir.
I agree with this but I do feel like the towns in England (except London) who voted remain are being forgotten.
What a toad. I'm so embarrassed to be in the same country as him!
Vytenis, pls will you speak up for
hiding our despair is what so many of us Brits are currently doing. So sorry for some of my countrymen. 🇪🇺
thank you for sharing your thoughts on this
As a resident of
I would like to point out that
, not just
Can only agree with you, the man is a cretin.
grown in wales
well said sir
Mack M : Jones
well said - only a % of uk voted leave - not us Vytenis - invite us back in find a way we want our EUcitizenship back
So embarrassed by Farage's speech. Please remember he does not speak for me.
I am so sorry for the incredibly offensive and humiliating 'speech' that Farage delivered. He does not represent Briton.
thank you!!! (From a Brit)
it's not just young people that want to stay in Europe I'm 62 and am passionate a out remaining
interesting, thank you. Is the EU capable of reforming itself and inviting Britain to remain within 2 years?
thank you for writing this.
I'm British and I can't stand him, he doesn't speak for me!
Thank you, we appreciate your understanding and apologise that you have to work alongside this man.

And yet Britain is going the same way Lithuania did in 1990, leaving a failed union behind. :3
The only thing I am ever interested in EVER seeing Farage do is to apologise to
AND Gibraltar where 96% voted remain!
Thanks for thoughts V. You know Farage doesn't represent UK -but many voters misled last week or just angry.
*me included. Though I don’t think I class as young anymore.
Good thoughts. It was also a majority of young people not just in the devolved nations and London who wanted to stay.
I'm ashamed to be from the same country as that disrespectful man and for the terrible decision 'we' have made
We voted to Remain here in Cardiff, Wales. Farage doesn't speak for me or anyone I know.
Here's what you want, mate.
I for one, am so angry and disappointed in my country this week. I despair along with you.
I had 2 smile watching u I voted Brexit bit i am not totally anti. We need 2leave. Sadly. I am German bit British. <3 x
I wish to convey my embarrassment at the message emanating from my country of birth. We are not all like Mr. Farage. Sorry.
simply Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.
I agree with your sentiment and feel many British people have been misled by a poor campaign from both sides
I'm so, so sorry that this clown speaks for my country. Thank you for your grace.
farage doesn't represent us, 37% of eligible voters will remove EU passports from the rest of us all. Reform should have won
Andriukaitis grew up in a gulag and fought for Lithuanian freedom. Farage was a hedge fund manager.
That's the closest I've come to crying since this whole grisly debacle started
Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts, it´s always good to get the full picture...
I'm hoping you don't think this idiot speaks for everyone who voted leave
Karl a Hjatland
thank you, and I apologise that you were inflicted with Nigel Farage
'Oor' Linda Indy2
Thank you for your kind words
Country Boy John
An awful lot of people in the UK despair of Nigel Farage as well
They do. I for one, cannot abide the poisonous little creep.
Absolutely irrelevant. Stay cucked. :^)
Thank you. My husband & I live in Brighton on the south coast: we voted with the almost 70% majority here to Remain. So sad.
- the intolerance he wishes is mirrored by the tolerance of many here in the UK. We welcome you
Thank you. It's nice to hear that the 48% of voters aren't being overlooked by the European mainland.
Im sorry for my country
thank you for seeing past that awful man. Most of us were offended by his behaviour yesterday.
Sir, we also watch on in horror at this buffoon. Please stick with us & support us as much as you can.
Thank you for your solidarity and thoughtful comments. You're welcome in Glasgow for a pint and a chat any time
> opposed to the EU. This man and his dreadful racist dogma do not represent me or majority of Britons.
please add cheltenham to your list. And if anyone can do anything to help prevent this I beg you to do so. Am crying again
I replied on your blog but it didn't work! Anyway, very well said. I voted out but I'm a socialist so have always been >
thank you. As a 48%er I feel desperately sad. Not sure how or if we can come back from this.
Thank you. Millions of Brit citizens deeply value their relationship with Europe. Nigel Farage does not represent us.
Thank you please understand this man is not speaking in our name. We did not want to leave.
What a wonderful person you are.
is beneath contempt.
Dr Randy Rzewnicki
Here are some thoughts from DG SANCO Commissioner
. He's a man who speaks from the heart, and for the heart.
🌷 thank you. Not only London (in England) significant numbers across England esp Manchester, but still outvoted. Devastated
Wish we had politicians like you here. On behalf of ~50% of the UK: our apologies.
Corbyn to send letters of apology to all of you for having to be anywhere near the man.
he thumped his chest. The man is hideous and does not represent the views of people of this country. I wanted Cameron and
please be assured that this ridiculous man does not speak for the vast majority of us, we're embarrassed and ashamed.
thankyou on behalf of UK people who do not support Farage. Our politics atm are shameful.
I was SO EMBARRASSED by that odious little creep of a man and honestly felt awful for all of you having to sit there while
not just Scotland, London & Northern Ireland. Manchester voted remain. Not just 'young' people; I'm 39, that's quite old!
thanks. Farage is a dangerous idiot. Our country is now in a downward spiral thanks to him and his henchmen
like others have said, I was also appalled by the speech Farage made. A sportsman accepts a 'win' with dignity & good grace
boring!! Get over it. You lost, end of!. The people voted out of a socialist dream. Watch the EU crumble
Get over it! my favourite phrase. Am doing my best George although think that this is far from 'end of'...
couldn't give a shit, mate
just a pointofview
why would anyone be interested in your thoughts - who r u anyway
judging by the retweets far far more than are interested in yours
thank you for this support. 48% (16mil) of us wanted to stay. Farage does not speak for me.
All very well Vytenis, but the EU has had over 30 years to carry out your advice and made little progress
Curioso Gina Devon
Trust me, Farage does not speak for me or my family.
Indeed. He is despicable. Where I lived 78% voted to Remain. Everyone I know is devastated.
: RJ :
Thank you - and we stand with you, too. Thank you for not judging us on the strength our so called “representative”.
congratulations for handling it so well. I was squirming in shame & I had the option of turning off!
