Timothy Stanley, in the American Conservative, writes, “To meet him (UKIP’s party leader Nigel Farage) is to instantly like him—if you like that sort of thing. To centrist politicians raised on a puritan diet of political correctness, he is like some horror from the mummy’s tomb. But to those who wear a hangover with pride, Farage is a tonic to politics as usual. “
UKIP’s populist strategy, according to Stanley, is built on a platform that offers lower taxes, withdrawal from the EU, and, crucially, a new emphasis on reducing European immigration, ending the bias toward unskilled European immigration and welcoming skilled workers from the rest of the world.
