UK: Surprise! Farage attacks Corbyn at UKIP National Conference

United Kingdom, Doncaster
September 25, 2015 at 03:50 GMT +00:00 · Published

The leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage launched a blistering attack on Jeremy Corbyn at the party's annual conference at Doncaster Racecourse, Friday.

The UKIP leader entertained the Doncaster audience with a series of rhetorical questions underlining Corbyn's policies, saying that because of the mentioned reasons, Corbyn is "a 1,000 miles away from those Labour voters that have come to UKIP." Farage went on to tell his audience, he believes that because of Corbyn's policies, "a whole new flank of the Labour vote in the Midlands, in the North, in Wales and right across this country is there for UKIP," meaning that "Corbyn is a gift to UKIP."

Farage also attacked Corbyn's relationship with fellow Labour party politician Diane Abbott, saying that it was her who elected Corbyn, to back rumours of both Corbyn and Abbott having been involved in a romantic relationship in the 1970s.
