Here, by Martin Durkin.
Mr Farage, I realised, is a passionate man. He has a romantic attachment to history and Britain and Europe. Surprisingly perhaps, he really loves Europe (he’s worked for a French company; his wife is German) and clearly enjoys going there. More than anything, however, he is passionate about his political beliefs. When he speaks of liberty, he does it with a certain something in his voice and a glint in his eye.
That bit about Europe applies to many of us in UKIP. It’s not the place, people, nations, cuisines or any of that that we despise. It’s the system of governance that we want to leave, nowt else.
