According to Farage, the BNP was wiped out thanks to his time spent as the leader of UKIP, where he managed to convince their voters to come and join his alternative right-wing party.
It was me that almost single-handedly killed the rise of the British National Party in the UK.
They were between 2006 and 2009 looking like becoming a very serious political party and I spoke directly to their voters and I said 'look, if you support an outright racist agenda you keep voting for the BNP. But, if you're doing it and holding your nose doing it, don't vote for them, vote for me. We've got a non-racist, non-sectarian agenda'
I think nobody in British politics has done more than me in modern times to get rid of the far-right more than I have.
