    Caps on EU migrants are illegal. Got that Dave?

    The Great British Public should not fall for Cameron's parlour trick. Any current plans to cap EU migrants will be illegal under EU law and are not deliverable until after successfully severing our ties to Brussels by getting out of the EU

    Quite what does UKIP stand for? Brexit and Nexit

    UKIP these days is less Brexit (though still that) than Nexit. In other words, they're a force for real change. And even though they're working out a manifesto, the party is up for some truly thoughtful ideas. It's Nexit Nige...

    Apres moi, Le Farage

    Experience has proved one thing beyond peradventure. If your idea of politics is to slag-off the opposition by insult and muck-raking, the electorate will punish you for it. UKIP thus wins every time the old political parties and media show their true and fading colours
