UKIP founder Alan Sked launches New Deal party

The founder of UKIP, who served as its first leader, has formed a left of centre, anti-EU party this week but it has already pledged to boycott the 2014 European elections.

Alan Sked said his former party had "gone native inside Brussels" with its MEPs taking money and expenses from the EU, but he claimed "they don't do anything".

New Deal advocates Britain's exit from the EU, pledges to renationalise the railways and scrap some of the coalition's benefit changes.

Mr Sked spoke to Andrew Neil after they looked back to archive footage of him launching UKIP in 1997.
