Farage Confirms UKIP is Turning Left

Who said it: Ed Miliband or Nigel Farage? Speaking to Guido this afternoon about his new super tax on luxury goods, the UKIP leader confirmed the party is making a significant shift to the left:

The country’s got a big, big problem and in the course of the last decade the ‘rich’ have got remarkably richer. I think Patrick is taking us in a slightly different direction and I think that is a recognition and a realisation that for millions of people life is a lot worse now that it was ten years ago. Coming out of this conference this morning for a couple of hours and going down to the factory and meeting all the men and women working that they are a lot worse off than they were.

Vote Purple, go red.
