Farage is "the biggest waste of money in the EU": video of Belgian ex-PM's put-down

Guy Verhofstadt is not happy with UKIP.

Perhaps getting his own back for Nigel Farage's infamous tirade against his fellow countryman Herman von Rompuy, former Belgian PM Guy Verhofstadt launched a blistering attack on the UKIP leader in the European Parliament. Farage has previously boasted about his total expense and allowance claims "pushing £2m", on top of his salary of £64,000.
