• UKIP leader Nigel Farage on SKY News reacting to the prime minister's 'Europe speech':
"By actually putting on the table for the first time in forty years the idea that this country can have a national debate about whether we're in the European Union or whether we leave the European Union marks a fundamental change in the national debate in this country.
"The genie is out of the bottle. It's not going to be put back.
"For years we were told that the only people that wanted to leave were a few wild-eyed extremists in UKIP and now, there it is, at the centre of the national debate in this country."
