Ukip's eurosceptic party leader Nigel Farage has dodged the question of whether or not he will resign if his party loses its bid to get Britain to leave the EU.
Farage, who said today that he will be focusing all his efforts on the upcoming in/out referendum, refused to answer the question when ITV spoke to him following his keynote speech at Ukip's annual party conference today.
He told ITV News: "Well no, we're going to win the referendum".
Ukip leader Nigel Farage has told party members that "this is the moment to put country before party" as he added more fuel to his campaign to get the British public to opt out of the EU.
Addressing delegates at his party's annual political conference the staunch eurosceptic said Britain was facing a "once in a lifetime opportunity" to distance itself from European regulations and voters needed to consider what would be best for the country.
He said: "This is the moment to put country before party. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get back the independence and self-government of this nation.
"Our message is clear, we want our country back."
Ukip leader Nigel Farage has said the election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour's new leader has been a 'gift to Ukip' and will see his party pick up more votes in future.
Speaking on the first day of the Ukip party conference Farage said Corbyn's turnaround on his previous eurosceptic stance would cost him in the polls.
He said: "I believe a whole new flank of the Labour vote is there for Ukip, I think Corbyn is a gift to Ukip."

Nigel Farage will launch Ukip's annual conference on Friday by telling activists they must focus on securing Britain's exit from the EU in a planned referendum.
The party leader believes there is a 50/50 chance of Britain voting to leave the EU and is to pledge all his time to campaigning in the in/out referendum.
"I'm not deserting the party but winning the referendum is absolutely key and that's where our energies must go," he will tell the conference in Doncaster.
"Ukip is committed to leaving the EU, and we have always said that we would work with anybody who shared the same aim."
Ukip secured nearly four million votes in May's general election but only claimed one Westminster seat.
UKIP have released a joint statement from Nigel Farage and Chris Wells, the Leader of Thanet district Council, in response to the announcement that Manston airport would be used to ease traffic congestion.
UKIP neither wants nor needs the Ramsgate area, including Manston, to become a lorry park.
This is a simplistic and short term approach to the ongoing crisis in Calais and Dover.
UKIP-controlled Thanet District Council is only interested in getting lorries moving so that business can flourish, not simply transferring the parking problem from Dover into the neighbouring districts.
