Nigel Farage joined other prominent Brexiteers revelling in Britain’s exit from the EU, following an historic deal reached between London and Brussels on Thursday.
The former Brexit Party leader, who proved instrumental in Britain’s momentous 2016 vote to leave the bloc, claimed the deal meant “victory” for “ordinary men and women”.
Ambassadors from the EU’s 27 nations convened on Christmas Day to start assessing the free trade deal, which takes effect in just a week.
