Farage on PM's EU pledge: 'We've heard it all before'

After the Prime Minister's announcement that the UK will have an in/out referendum on Europe if the Conservatives win the next general election, UKIP leader Nigel Farage said:

"There is absolutely no reason to carry this on past the general election, and perhaps the biggest issue which will emerge over time is the issue of trust".

He went on: "We've heard this all before and frankly I don't really trust him, I don't trust his motives. He's just trying to defuse this issue and get UKIP off his back and it's not going to work".
