Nigel Farage (remember him?) has claimed that Donald Trump is riding high in the Republican polls because he's adopted Ukip's anti-establishment rhetoric.
In a speech to the conservative Heritage Foundation thinktank in Washington DC, the Ukip leader said:
I do think some of the things he's picked up on in the last few weeks are very similar to the kind of things we've picked up on in British politics – the feeling that there is a centralised bureaucracy in Washington, maybe not connecting with some of the concerns of ordinary people.
Farage, whose previous forays in the US have been inadvertently entertaining, rejected the notion he was the "British Donald Trump".
In terms of Donald Trump, I would avoid any comparison but I like to think of myself as the updated Henry VIII.
Trump is topping some opinion polls among Republican voters for who should win the party's nomination for the White House, but his campaign has been dominated by frequent assertions that Mexican immigrants arriving in the US are drug-using rapists.
