MEP Seb Dance holds handwritten sign accusing Nigel Farage of "lying" during a debate


UKIP’s Nigel Farage has been accused of “lying” by a fellow MEP, during a European Parliament debate on Trump’s travel ban.

As Nigel Farage addressed the parliament, and defended President Trump’s immigration policy, Dance sat behind him, holding a protest sign.

Dance, a Labour MEP representing London, held aloft a handwritten sign which read: “He’s lying to you”, with an arrow pointing towards Farage.

Dance was instructed to lower the sign by a parliamentary clerk.

He later explained that he was acting out of frustration. “I was fed up, frankly, with nationalist and populist messages being paraded around”, he said.

A complaint has been launched by UKIP, who describe Dance’s action as “a defamatory personal remark”.
