Osborne says 'respects' UKIP after vote success

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne is pictured on May 6, 2014 at the EU headquarters in BrusselsChancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said Saturday he “respects” UKIP leader Nigel Farage as he said the Conservatives had to counter the “anger” that produced significant advances for the right-wing party in the local elections. As the Conservatives face calls to make a pact with Farage’s party at next year’s general election, Osborne warned that voting for UKIP could hand power to the main opposition Labour party. UKIP, he said, did not “have answers to the country’s future”. Farage’s party gained more than 120 seats in English councils in local elections Thursday and are widely expected to finish top when results from the European parliament vote are announced Sunday.
