Albeit reluctantly and not entirely unequivocally it has to be said. Farage mentions first certain arguments of the "sudden exit" advocates, I guess in order to try to appease them, but he certainly acknowledges that Article 50 is "the law of the land". (1st question in):
...the one problem is this, that under the current treaties (under the Lisbon Treaty) the only mechanism by which we can withdrawal is Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.
Now A50 can be cited to renegotiate a relationship or to lead through to a divorce that takes 2 years. I have difficulty … recognising the legitimacy of A50 because it’s part of a Treaty that should have been put to a referendum that was actually bullied through Parliament…However I have to accept that it is the law of the land.
And I would say this if legally what we have to do is to enter into full divorce proceedings by using the legal article of that treaty we will do so in an open and amicable spirit…Incidentally what he said is not far removed from the email I received from Tim Aker the contents of which I was not allowed to make public.
