Nigel Farage has insisted that the UK Independence Party would not be "bought off" by the offer of a position in government.
Speaking on Sky News, he rejected a call by Tory MP Michael Fabricant for the Conservatives and UKIP to form an election pact.
The UKIP leader said:
There is a problem, Michael Fabricant thinks we can be bought off with me being offered a post in government and then UKIP then packing up their tents and going home, well that is not going to happen.
We are a different political party with a full manifesto.
