Andrew Neill gave Farage a pretty easy time but he did lay two traps before him; and predictably Farage gave disingenuous answers to both. When Neill offered him the chance to say that immigration was bad for Britain, it was almost possible to see the brain saying "Look out. It`s politically incorrect to say `yes` if you want to poll a wide cross section of the vote" so he shirked a direct answer to the question.
Then when Neill tried to persuade Farage to say that threequarters of his support came from disenchanted Conservatives, he waffled about the details of the Eastleigh byelection which although it gave a different answer to the Com Res Poll and didn`t admit that UKIP are Miliband`s greatest allies, ComRes made it quite clear that this is the case.
Now of course the last thing he wants is for his own supporters to start thinking rationally about the outcome of the 2015 election because I believe the last thing most UKIP voters will want to see after that event is a Labour Government and that they will be held directly responsible by the rest of us if this comes about. If it happens, this will see UKIP dead and buried.
I am quite content for the electors of this country to vote for whom they please. I certainly shall not be voting for UKIP. Those who do must bear the consequences of their actions. This performance by Farage was politically skillful and thoroughly misleading

" I believe the last thing most UKIP voters will want to see after that event is a Labour Government "

You make a great presumption about understanding kippers, based on what I might ask?

John Parkes. On the contrary, Farage rebutted Andrew Neil's suggestion that three quarters of UKIP support comes from disenchanted Conservatives by pointing out where our votes are coming from, using evidence of the voting booth and Lord Ashcrofts polls, not Neil's assumptions .... and he did it several times.

He also clearly said that he thought that excessive immigration since 1997 had not had a positive effect on our towns and cities and he was sorry that it had happened.

Nigel Farage and UKIP are not Conservatives but offer disillusioned Conservative Members and voters a centre right party with common sense policies and are unafraid to confront the issues which the three main parties fudge.
UKIP will put Britain and the British people first.

Some interesting remarks above. Are you saying then `radsatser` that most UKIP voters do in fact want to see a Labour government after the 2015 election? If you are not then I believe my view is valid. If you are then you should say so now so that those who are tempted to vote UKIP will know exactly what they are voting for.
`Boudicca` seems not to have heard Farage`s reaction to Neill`s question and his subsequent breakdown of the figures at Eastleigh,
`robertnow` I fear is just mouthing a UKIP cliche with which no doubt we shall soon become very familiar

I wouldn't vote for the misleading, obfuscating, demagogue Cameron and co and his Not The Conservative Party if you paid me. I no longer vote for the lesser of two evils, but it seems that john parkes is still prepared to, so along with the rest of the "my party right or wrong tribe". If Labour win the next GE it will be the leadership and distrust of Cameron that will ensure that victory

So there was obviously another interview because this isn't a description of the one I saw. Agenda driven waffle. The whole poll and bit on SDP was done by Dilnot who is DP's comedy turn, so that was agenda driven as well. We will be taken seriously, and if part of the progress is to put Miliband in power and destroy the conservatives, then fine it's the country we stand for not the party

john parkes

I despair when I read comments such as that made above by `Rayvesey` above when he believes that to elect a Labour government in 2015 and destroy the Conservative Party at the same time will be for the good of the country. Fortunately I do not believe the majority in the country adhere to the concept of rabid bigotry and an unwillingness to look outside the narrow confines of any one political pressure group. The more the line in his post is publicised, the louder will sound the death knell of UKIP.

The message needs to be transmitted loud and clear to the Vichy Tory Party in 2015 that so long as they model themselves as New Labour-lite, they can expect to be permanently in opposition. Trying to scare people with the pathetic spin that if you don't vote Tory, Labour will get back in just doesn't work any more because people know that the Cameron clique are very comfortable implementing the statist spendthrift authoritarian principles of the left.
