This is my core strength here, as the new leader of UKIP. I can take away any sense of toxicity that might be out there and portray a much more friendly outgoing inclusive face of UKIP. Ultimately, we've got to win. We've got to get results. We have to face up to the fact that our reputation hasn't been universally accepted.
We've now got an opportunity to take that and win. That's what matters.>> I'm probably the most experienced person in the field. I've been the chairman of the party, the deputy leader f or the past 6 years, and I think it needs someone to step in now and create an air of unity to bring the factions together and ensure that UKIP remains on the pitch.
And makes the most with the great opportunities it has in the future.
