Farage defends deal with Polish MEP in EU grouping

UKIP's leader has defended a decision to take on a Polish MEP in its grouping in the European Union.

Nigel Farage said all parties have to make compromises and told Andrew Neil: "I accept it's a Brussels-type deal."

Thee have been concerns about the MEP's previous comments about domestic violence, while his leader's reported comments about women and Hitler have attracted controversy.

UKIP is part of the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy group in Brussels, where a Latvian MEP left last week, and a Polish MEP joined it this week.
