Nick Clegg accused Nigel Farage of peddling "dangerous fantasies" in an ill-tempered BBC TV debate on Britain's future in Europe.
Mr. Farage accused the Lib Dem leader of "willfully lying to the British people about Brussels' grip on UK laws.
He also claimed EU immigration had hit the "white working class" the hardest.
Instant polls said Mr. Farage had won by a bigger margin than he did in their debate last week....
The UKIP leader accused the Lib Den leader of being "hell bent on getting Britain involved in a war....
He said he did not want Britain to be part of an "expansionist" EU foregin policy, claiming that the EU wants it own "army and navy"....
The pair again clashed on EU immigration, with Mr. Farage saying it was "good for the rich because it's cheaper nannies and cheaper chauffer and cheaper gardeners but its bad news for ordinary Britons."
The UKIP leader said the scale of immigration over recent years had "shocked" the country and increased segregation in towns and cities......

The Labor / Conservative boycott of these televised debates is backfiring.
Perhaps the UK electorate will figure it out soon. The only things Belgium produdes are beer and chocolates, and the EU is ultimately doomed, and was from the start. Why let the Eurocrats take UK down (not that the C-C boys aren't trying their best locally, too, of course).
Thanks Nextrush. Euroskepticism ping.

Too bad someone with foreign citizenship can’t be President. Oh, wait . ..
It looks like Enoch Powell rose from the dead and now everyone “gets it”.
Yes. In Britain, as in America, the left and the transnational class have declared a class war. So what’s your point?
He’s a neocon, what do you expect?
That’s the way it goes when the Conservative Party isn’t Conservative.
Cameron dug his own grave and I hope Farage whips him good in the EU parliament elections and the next general election.
Britain and America have the same problems. Divide and conquer on all issues. If you oppose ILLEGAL immigration or gay marriage you’re a racist, etc.
I hope the UK gets out of the EU.
Farage was the one who said it, and he is not the “transnational class”.
I work as a strategic consultant.
Open borders is for keeping labour costs low.
Everyone knows this.
I let the people decide.
Mt line of work will not be in danger btw. So I am quite...
But, we are talking low skilled jobs, menial labour etc,
Ïn a country like Spain.
50 percent of people under 25 has never had a job.
To me that is a frightening fact and will cause trouble.
When the EU benefits stop.
That’s merely the market reason for people crossing the border; the politics are something else again.
