UK Independence Party MEP Steven Woolfe has given his first, exclusive long-form interview to Breitbart London following his announcement to run for the party’s leadership this morning.
Outgoing leader Nigel Farage MEP was not present at Mr. Woolfe’s launch this morning, in an attempt to stay neutral at this point in the contest.
Mr. Woolfe told Breitbart London’s Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam about his background being from a council estate in Manchester, and how his ethnically diverse upbringing has informed his world view.
We must not lose our British dream – the chance to succeed regardless of postcode or race for the next generation. https://t.co/JhcYqt8QFu
