UKIP 'momentum' in Eastleigh

UKIP 'momentum' in Eastleigh
UKIP have the "momentum" to win in Eastleigh, Nigel Farage has told PoliticsHome.

In an interview the UKIP leader said he had "no doubt" his party could win.

“Yes, we can win here. Of that I have no doubt; I think the polls, the Ashcroft polls and everything else frankly are nonsense. ... Given that we have momentum I think we’re there,” he said.

Earlier David Cameron launched a fierce attack on Labour'sby-election candidate, accusing him of a "disgraceful lack of patriotism and pride".

The Prime Minister took aim at John O'Farrell first for his comments on the Brighton bomb attack and later for his apparent support for the Argentineans during the Falklands War.

Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions, Mr Cameron said: "This candidate, endorsed by the leader of the Labour party, a shocking lack of patriotism and natural pride."

On Twitter this afternoon Mr O’Farrell responded concerning his comment on the Brighton bomb attack. He said “I wrote an honest memoir and volunteered this fleeting bad thought from 1984 to illustrate how hatred can poison politics”.
