UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage drums up support in Eastleigh

First published in Politics

UKIP leader Nigel Farage was in Eastleigh to drum up support for his party’s campaign which he said would be fought on immigration.

Mr Farage – pictured with stallholder Gary Williams in the town market – said: “Our number one issue is that this country faces a second massive migratory wave”

He added the pressure on housing, education and services from immigration “poses a major problem” for the country, especially if people from other countries claim benefits.

“If we can rally our support like we have in the last three by-elections in Rotherham, in Middlesbrough and in Corby then this seat could become a four-way marginal,” he added.
