UKIP leader Nigel Farage was in Belfast yesterday and while his politics will not have universal appeal, it is welcome to see the leader of a national political party visiting the Province.

Mr Farage, who visited the News Letter during his time in Northern Ireland, has come to Ulster on several occasions in recent years and his was the only national party to contest – with almost no success – the 2011 Assembly elections.

As a unionist newspaper which over recent years has reported on the breadth of unionist politics without taking sides amongst the parties, we welcome the commitment of UKIP to treat Northern Ireland as an integral part of the United Kingdom.
