VIDEO: Nigel Farage and UKIP, 17 Years Ago

The BBC has dug up a video of Nigel Farage and an early UKIP rally from 1997. 

Seventeen years ago, UKIP leader Nigel Farage was 33 years old, and UKIP itself was just 4 years old.

And sure, the colour of his hair may have changed, but that raspy, rebellious tone is already present. 

“What started as a murmur in the pubs and clubs and wherever people congregate in this country is now beginning to reach a crescendo roar and what people are saying is get Britain out… 

“I joined the Conservative Party when I was 13 or 14 years old. I was excited by much of what Mrs Thatcher was trying to do during the 1980s. I felt that I was always going to be a Conservative. It didn’t seem possible to me that the Conservative Party would so actively betray all that this country stands for.”
