Nigel Farage has said he is prepared to take legal action to get into televised leaders’ debates after it emerged that David Cameron wants to freeze him out.

Senior Tories say the Prime Minister does not want to share a platform with the UKIP leader.

He reportedly wants to try to stop Mr Farage signing up, by arguing that he cannot take part in a leaders’ debate as he represents a party without any MPs.

with the last council elections they gained a quarter of the vote, and with european elections, some are predicting large wins, so why are the 3 main parties running scared?

or what is with ukip? is there a political party which is actually listening to the people? and prepared to give them more choices?

Well, UKIP want to take us out of the European Community.

This of course means the MEPs from the "major" parties will fall off the "gravy train". Let's face it, they're not there to represent the people, they are there to line their own pockets most of the time. Giving Farage airtime like this would only make the voters realise there is an alternative.

I think the gig is up on 'pro-business' politicians. Europe has been sold down the river and people are angry about it. At the moment there is no real alternative so you have headless protests like the Occupy Movement and growing popular support for parties with no real policies like UKIP.

we've also become Europe's dumping ground and now we're being told that those arriving should be given Social Securty handouts from Day One!
