We are adding 10% to the national debt every year says the UKIP leader. Speaking to BBC Breakfast he argues that we are literally stealing from our children.
He also talks about the aftermath of the Rotherham adoption scandal, advocates a bonfire of quangoes, deregulating employment law, embracing shale gas and celebrates an opinion poll that shows UKIP is scoring 21% in East Anglia. He suggests Eastern England was the "hotspot" for UKIP.
Recently in a sign of UKIP's rise Nigel Farage had the top 0810 slot on Radio 4's Today programme. Yesterday he had a 12 minute slot on Andrew Neil's Politics Show. Polls differ on how well UKIP is actually doing but its new popularity is producing a much greater media profile. That is only like to grow in advance of 2014's European Elections when UKIP is expected to perform well.
The UKIP leader was talking to Andrew Neil about possible Tory-to-UKIP defections. He defended his party against charges of incompetence in London, nastiness towards Sayeeda Warsi and narrowness of message.
