Nigel Farage disowns Ukip's entire 2010 election manifesto
Rowena MasonNigel Farage has disowned his party's entire 2010 election manifesto after he was asked whether the UK Independence party still wanted to introduce a dress code for taxi drivers, regularly deploy armed forces on the street and repaint trains in traditional colours.
The Ukip leader said all the party's policies were under review and he would not commit to new ones until after the European elections in May.
Speaking on BBC2's Daily Politics, Farage argued he was not in charge of the party in 2010 as he was just a candidate – despite having previously led the group between 2006 and 2009. "I don't defend the 2010 manifesto. I didn't put it together," he said.
