The leader of the French far right-wing Front National (FN) party has said that she would welcome collaboration with UKIP with "open arms".Marine Le Pen told BBC Newsnight ideas UKIP leader Nigel Farage defends are "very similar" to those of her party.
In a statement, UKIP said it was "not interested in any deal" with Ms Le Pen or her party because of "prejudice and anti-Semitism in particular" in the FN. Link
Marine and Nigel also seem to share an open admiration for Putin so is it just a question of time for UKIP to join a coalition with Front Nationale or is Farage running petrified with being seen as linked to the French version of the National Front / BNP?
