UKIP leader Nigel Farage today accused ministers of mounting a “nasty Big Brother” billboard campaign against illegal immigrants in an attempt to stop defections to his anti-EU party.
“What the billboards should say is, 'Please, don’t vote UKIP, we’re doing something',” Mr Farage said. “That’s what it’s all about, of course it is.
“I think the actual tone of the billboards is nasty, unpleasant, Big Brother. I don’t think using messages like this will make any difference. What will make a difference is enforcing our borders properly.”
