•Nigel Farage paid a visit to the President of the Czech Republic today, his first official meeting with a Head of State as Leader of UKIP.
Nigel's meeting with President Vaclav Klaus, a committed Eurosceptic, was held at Prague Castle and later the discussions were described as "fruitful and productive".
Speaking to the Czech press after the meeting, Mr Farage praised Klaus as the sole European head of state who takes a truly eurosceptic stance. He said their discussion centred on their concerns that Europe uses every crisis as a pretext to take away another piece of democracy from its members.
