Most of the interest focussed on when the Ukip leader was read excerpts from the Powell 1968 rivers of blood speech without being told the origin of the comments and nodded along. He then had to state he agreed with the underlying premise of the speech. Nothing new there!
What was new was Farage stating that a country could not control immigration as a full member of the EU. Clearly Farage is preparing to retreat from UKIP's unconditional full withdrawal from the EU core policy to some unspecified associate status a bit like the devo lite proposal for Scottish Independence which Cameron could not countenance. Barosso will do likewise to Farage's on the hoof proposal.
Another example of Farage trying to make up policy for a cheap short term sound bite. The only thing bitten will be Farage's delicate parts.
