Nigel Farage on the Rise of UKIP, the fall of Europe and the parallels in the US

Welcome to Capital Account. Nigel Farage is a UK politician with a strong following in the US. He has seen his own party, UKIP, grow from a fringe faction to a viable mainstream alternative. By turning his European Parliamentary position into a bully pulpit for a growing movement of euro-skeptics, he has managed to ride the alternative political wave sweeping across the Atlantic. Many of his speeches on the EU went viral on the Internet, particularly on the financial blogosphere in the United States, making the man and his United Kingdom Independence Party a force to be reckoned with. Nigel Farage joins us in studio to discuss all this, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the European Parliament and his relationships with other MEPs under the new Iron Curtain!
