UKIP may have experienced some pretty significant wins over the past 24 hours, however all you have to do is listen to one of their average supporters to realise how far they still have to come, writes Oliver Wheaton in Metro.

A supporter who recently called in to radio station Leading Britain’s Conversation (LBC) seemed to be just as loud as Nigel Farage but had very little information on UKIP policies.

When host James O’Brien asks Jack, from Welling, what the party stands for, the hapless supporter is at a loss for words.

After struggling through some meaningless rhetoric about immigration, Jack stutters through several David Brent-like answers, such as: ‘Loads of things.’

When Mr O’Brien continues to press Jack for one UKIP policy he is met with several awkward pauses.

Poor Jack at one point even asks the host himself about UKIP’s policies, suggesting he didn’t exactly come into the debate as an informed voter.

James O’Brien and UKIP leader Nigel Farage have clashed before on LBC, in which Mr Farage was criticised for saying he would not want a Romanian immigrant as a neighbour.
