Nigel Farage: I will resign unless we win election seats

Ukip's Nigel Farage has said he will resign as leader of the party if his prediction of winning several seats in the next General Election does not come to pass.

In his main address to conference goers in Torquay, Mr Farage said he believed seats in the Commons in 2015 were achievable if the eurosceptic party clears its next hurdles in European and local council elections this May.

Asked about his comments at a press conference, Mr Farage said: "I said in my speech we could get several MPs, or a good number of MPs, in Westminster in 2015 provided, and I made it absolutely clear, that would not happen unless we clear this hurdle effectively on May 22.

"I stand by that, this is the election Ukip has waited 20 years for... I would have thought so [resign] ... good lord yes, I would be out the door before you could say Jack Robinson."
