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.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage claimed a "sea change" in British politics as they gained more than 140 council seats in the local elections.
There is no question that the day belongs to UKIP and Nigel Farage. The party has gained over 100 seats and won about a quarter of the vote.
In an article for ITV News, the Conservative MP Adam Afriyie calls for a guarantee on an in-out EU referendum to deal with the UKIP threat.
