I do not agree with the views and sentiments of Nigel Farage but I do believe that it is very important for other politicians to rise above this level of discourse. Statements made by the former Belgian Prime Minister only serve to devolve the level of discussion to that Farage is operating on.
Yes, these statements create more harm than good. People tend to speak down to people with whom they disagree. This is not conducive to any forward movement or growth for anyone. Instead of bringing others down, people should try to foster change for the better. Words do nothing especially words of negativity in the time of hardship.
Government leaders should not publicly ridicule each other over disagreements. Britain's vote to leave the European Union has already created a lot of friction between the country and Europe. Leaders of these countries do not need to add fuel to the fire by making harsh public statements about each other. Instead, they should be working together to ensurer a smooth transition as Britain leaves the EU.
No, I do not think the statements made by former Belgian Prime Minister about Farage lying in EU referendum campaign creates more harm than good because it would be more harmful if other EU countries follow Great Britain's lead and leave the European Union. The former Belgian Prime Minister is ridiculing Farage to show that he is a deceitful person and that the move to leave was a bad decision for Great Britain.
