European far right and neo-fascist parties are ecstatic about Britain's vote to leave the European Union.
European far-right parties have praised the UK's decision to abandon the EU, hoping their countries will follow suit and have their own referendum. Marie le Pen, leader of the National Front in France, has hailed the UK's Brexit as a "Victory for Freedom!"
Le Pen, whose anti-immigrant party is considered the third force in French politics after receiving 29% of the nationwide vote during last year's regional elections, added: "That which no-one dared to dream about a few months back is now a reality which is clear to everyone: yes, it's possible to leave the EU," reported the Guardian.
Elsewhere Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders sent his own congregations to Britain and Ukip leader Nigel Farage after Britain opted to leave the EU by 51.9% to 48.1%.
