UKIP will win the next elections for the European Parliament, UKIP economics spokesman Godfrey Bloom said today, after leader Nigel Farage confirmed that he will stand for parliament in the 2015 general election.

"It was, I reckoned, a no brainer that we were bound to come first in 2014 and that's clearly, I think, what's going to happen," he told the Sunday Politics.

He said the party's priority was now to get elected to the Westminster Parliament so they could challenge Mr Cameron directly.

"I'd love to see Nigel Farage get at his throat at Prime Minister's question time. That's our ambition," he said.
