Farage looks to capitalise on Tory unrest with advert

UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage has moved to exploit unrest within the Conservative Party with a rallying call for disaffected Tory voters to join his ranks.

Mr Farage has taken out a full-page advert in The Daily Telegraph urging those unsettled by David Cameron's policies or insulted by a senior Tory figure's alleged description of activists as "mad, swivel-eyed loons" to defect to his party.

Mr Farage's letter ends with an additional call for Labour and Lib Dem voters to join his ranks too. Credit: UKIP/The Daily Telegraph
