Posted on 05/25/2014 5:11:49 PM PDT by Beave Meister
Nigel Farage tonight claimed victory in the European elections, becoming the first 'insurgent party' to top a national vote.
With results still being declared, Mr Farage broke cover to predict he will humiliate the Westminster parties, pushing Labour and the Tories into second and third.
Support for Ukip has surged by more than 12 per cent, outstripping a more modest boost in votes for Labour, while the Lib Dems faced near-wipeout, with some calling for Nick Clegg to resign.
Mr Farage said: 'Ukip is going to win this election and yes that will be an earthquake because never before in the history of British politics has a party that will be seen to be an insurgent party ever topped the polls in a national election.
'We go on surprising people. I am delighted with the way the campaign has gone. It has been a pretty remarkable journey.
'We have formed the people's army to fight the establishment. I love Europe, it's the European Union I have a problem with.'

Its all good. Love Nigel Farage.
What this means. UKIP is like our Tea Party, except it is a organized
party. UKIP main issue is immigration.
The Conservatives (Our RINO’s) have done nothing about the radical
Muslims invading England.
UKIP is storming England.
This vote is an historic event in England.
Great news. I just posted an article about the hysterics coming out of their current Marxist gov’t over their elections.
Third parties can’t win. Ask the GOPe.
Good to see the bnp lose there seat and a conservative one like ukip gain ,
Bnp are a real neo nazi political party similar to the npd of germany ,
hell bnp was started by john tyndall who was the deputy leader of the national socialist movement in the uk
“I love Europe, it’s the European Union I have a problem with”
Great, on-point statement by Farage.
You don’t have to give up your sovereignty in order to have good ties with the rest of Europe.
Mr Farage suggested he aimed to destroy the Conservative Party, not make pacts with it.
OTOH, I think Farage is the real deal, not a racist drop in his pint. In other words, good bloke.
GRRRRREEAT news! These establishment liars/criminals/socialists/totalitarians, foreign and domestic, need to be DEPOPULATED from the body politic.
Is the media still trying to make UKIP about one guy?
UKIP’s main issue is getting the UK out of the EU.
If they don’t get out of the EU then the immigration issue is a moot point.
Farage is almost always on point. He rarely slips up.
This is what the tea party needs is someone who is sharp, well spoken and on point and who doesn’t go off into the weeds on every little issue.
What's not to like?
Tyndall was the leader of national front then
Correct, which is why the name of the party is the United Kingdom Independence Party.
Congratulations to UKIP, good luck in the general election. I wish we here in the USA had a Nigel Farage to lead our "Independence" party.
