Far be it from me –

Nigel Farage accused of basing Ukip policy on the views of a cabbie

File photo dated 20/11/14 of Ukip Leader Nigel Farage two-thirds of Ukip supporters think their party will be in government after the general election, according to a new poll. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Sunday January 18, 2015. A quarter - or 24% - of Ukip supporters think the party's leader Nigel Farage will become prime minister in May, while 67% believe the party will be in Government, according to a new ICM poll published in a report from independent think-tank British Future. The report shows that expectations are higher among the 10% of the public who say they will "definitely" vote Ukip - with 35% of them expecting Mr Farage to be prime minister, compared with just 27% who say that David Cameron will occupy 10 Downing Street. The new research finds that most people overall - 54% - think the Conservatives will be in government after the election, while 25% think this is unlikely. But in a country that has become disenchanted with politics, more than 39% of respondents would prefer it if every party could lose the election. See PA story POLITICS Ukip.

Nigel Farage is again fighting fires he himself started after being accused of basing Ukip policy on a brief conversation he had with a cab driver.

During an interview with LBC host Nick Ferrari the Euro-sceptic party leader regaled a story of when he caught a ride with a ‘very bright, well educated, terribly nice fellow’, who Mr Farage claimed told him: ‘Your society in Britain is rotten and it needs changing. We are going to take over and introduce Sharia law.’

Mr Ferrari instantly questions how wise it is for the leader of a party with a ‘commendable 14 per cent rating in the polls for the upcoming general election’ to base policy decisions on a conversation with a taxi driver.
