There's an interview with UKIP's leader Nigel Farage over at A Tangled Web. Personally I agree with a lot of their policies, but outside of the European elections a vote for them is a wasted vote, until such time as an alternative to the first past the post system is implemented. DSD who conducted the interview did ask one question which I had submitted, namely why do UKIP put candidates up against genuinely eurosceptic MPs such as Bill Cash. I wasn't impressed with his answer which seemed to be putting ideological purity ahead of achieving anything. Even if UKIP don't endorse the views of Eurosceptic Tories it is obvious to me that from the point of view of the typical UKIP supporter they are clearly preferable to Eurofanatic alternatives.
