Nigel Farage is the Leader of the UK Independence Party. The party campaigns for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, and now has a full manifesto. The party supports selective education, opposes massive immigration, but is a non racist party. The party also supports lesser government and fewer taxes, and is sceptical of human contribution to global warming. Sadly, the Conservative Party in the UK has moved further and further to the left under the leadership of David Cameron who described himself as a 'social liberal', is a fan of the EU and green taxes.
The UK Independence Party is extremely similar to the Liberal Party of Australia. It is a conservative liberal party. The party came second in the European Parliament elections in the UK in 2009.
Farage is a an admirer of Australia and John Howard, and a big supporter of the Commonwealth.
Watch him in action here and here and here and here
His excellent book is Flying Free.
I would strongly recommend this book as part of my new Book Of The Week article.
