After accepting the Ukip local party officials nomination as candidate to stand in the South Thanet seat in next year's general election, Nigel Farage told the audience:
We can't for one moment afford to be complacent because we swept the board in 2013 and we swept the board here in 2014.
We did and that was magnificent. But don't think that the heavy artillery from the Conservative and Labour parties will not be fired on this constituency.
They will, they will, they will try very, very hard. They don't want Ukip breaking through into Parliament and they most certainly do not want me breaking through into Parliament.
Somebody said I'm David Cameron's worst nightmare. Well, that's not good enough. I want to be Ed Miliband's worst nightmare, too."
Following his speech, Mr Farage smiled broadly as he walked past branch members to applause and chants of "Nigel, Nigel, Nigel".
