Marine Le Pen says Front National and Ukip 'closer than they would like to admit'
Henry SamuelMarine Le Pen, leader of the French far-Right party, has said that Ukip has far more in common with the Front National than it would like to admit and that the two parties could join forces to bring down the EU's "Berlin wall of Brussels".
Speaking from her Paris headquarters, Miss Le Pen, whose party is expected to score well in forthcoming European elections, said Ukip is avoiding an alliance due to "electoral considerations".
"They say they're not in agreement with us. My foot," she told the Telegraph. "OK, we don't have the same economic policies [but] they share our point of view on the European Union and immigration: everyone must control his borders, European technocrats must disappear, the European Soviet Union must collapse, everyone must have their own currency, their economic policy and decide in their own home."
