Hard drinking, chain smoking, rough diamond Mr Farage is the antithesis of many of the politically correct bores who currently grace the green benches.
The soundest small ‘c’ conservative in the UK at present, with popular positions on Europe, immigration and individual freedom, Nigel is the most exciting politician on the right since Mrs Thatcher.
A defender of common sense values and respected outside Ukip by many grassroots Conservatives, he will be a huge asset to the conservative cause if elected in May.
Ukip polled just 5.5 per cent in South Thanet in 2010 but with Nigel fighting the seat this time, he is looking good to take the seat and play a crucial part in the OUT campaign on the EU referendum.
He has confirmed that if he fails to win the seat he will stand down as UKIP leader. It would be a travesty for British politics if Nigel quits politics.
If you are conservative and live in South Thanet you should vote for Nigel.
