In an impassioned speech, the un-resigned UKIP leader Nigel Farage told Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to take “courage” and quit the euro after the latest emergency bailout talks broke down.

Farage said it was time to “get back control of your country,” adding the banks would “give you no more.”

He addressed Tsipras at the European Parliament in Brussels after Greece missed the final deadline to repay its debt on Tuesday.

Subsequent talks broke down, and Greece has been given another deadline to try and reach a resolution.

If no proposals are accepted, eurozone leaders have scheduled emergency talks on Sunday night to discuss the effects of the potential Grexit.

“They will give you no more, these people. They can’t afford to. If they give you more, they will have to give other eurozone members more,” Farage said.

“Your moment has come and, frankly, if you've got the courage, you should lead the Greek people out of the eurozone with your head held high.

“Get back your democracy, get back control of your country, give your people the leadership and the hope that they crave.

“Yes, it’ll be tough for the first few months but, with a devalued currency and friends of Greece all over the world, you will recover.”

“The European project is actually beginning to die,” he added.

“The plan has failed. This isn’t just Greece we are talking about today. The whole of the Mediterranean now finds itself in the wrong currency, and yet virtually nobody in the political arena has the courage to stand up and say that.

“I feel that the continent is now divided from north to south. There is a new Berlin Wall and it’s called the euro.”

Tsipras has always remained adamant that Greece will not leave the single currency, and responded to Farage by saying he was “determined” there would be no clash between Greece and the eurozone.
