Nouse interviews UKIP’s Gowain Towler

“We threaten the establishment, we threaten what we call the legacy parties, and, the fact is, most of the media establishment, if it’s print, they are already loyal to a party that pre-exists. If it’s broadcast – ITV, essentially, isn’t interested in politics. It has to cover it a bit, but it’d far prefer not to. Celebrities are far more interesting, which is true – whereas the BBC has its charter. BBC news coverage, I think, now, gives us a fair crack of the whip. I do.”
