Nigel Farage explains the connection between Brexit and GameStop: people across political lines have had it with the inept, corrupt, failing ruling class.

Farage says the GameStop revolt is a “watershed moment for the financial markets,” because average people are fighting back against corrupt institutions and starting to realize, “We can do something about it.”

“A populist revolt that is apolitical it brings the right and the left together and that is why this is not going away anytime soon,” Farage said. “Frankly, people have had enough.”

The revolt is against the “we know best” attitude of the ruling class, where it’s always “one rule for them, it’s another rule for us.” 

“They can’t close down our accounts forever,” Farage said. “Investors are mad, they are going to go on buying this stock. If that means that a couple of hedge funds go bust then so be it.”

“What we saw yesterday was a total abuse of power,” said Farage. “It was a disgrace.”
