Nigel Farage with Dermot Murnaghan on Sky News, 6 January 2013

"So what do you put it down to?" Sky News' Dermot Murnaghan asked UKIP leader Nigel Farage with regard to UKIP's rise in popularity from 4.5% a year ago to 16% today, "is it Europe, immigration, or does it go beyond that?"

Farage: "It goes beyond that. I think the people see us as actually standing up and saying what we think, not being constrained or scared by political correctness. They see us as a party that unashamedly wants to stand up for Britain and for British people.

"And I think on the top-line issues that you mentioned - Europe and immigration - we've been abused for a decade for even daring to talk about these things. Well, now the arguments that UKIP has made are absolutely at the heart of the national debate in this country."
