Britain's eurosceptic leader Farage forms parliament group

Leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) Nigel Farage gestures as he speaks during a campaign event at Kelham Hall in Newark upon Trent, central England on May 31, 2014Britain’s increasingly popular eurosceptic leader Nigel Farage scored a new victory on Wednesday, putting together a group in the European Parliament after winning the support of a French far-right defector. Marine Le Pen, leader of France’s far-right National Front, also is expected to soon announce the formation of a rival eurosceptic group, a source close to the matter told AFP. “I am very proud to have formed this group with other MEPs and we undertake to be the peoples’ voice,” Farage said in a statement. His UK Independence Party (UKIP) last month tripled its seats in the EU assembly from eight to 24, ahead of both Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party.
