Controversial UKIP spokesman Nigel Farage tells MATV about his party's plan to help pubs prosper.

Nigel Farage, the outspoken and controversial spokesman for the UK Independence Party, is on a big pub crawl.

It's not just for fun — it's part of his campaign to get elected as the next MP for Buckingham.

So far, Farage has visited around 70 pubs and chatted with licensees, giving his views on cheap supermarket booze, the smoking ban, alcohol duty and business rates.

"We're the only country in the world that makes proper beer," he says. "The rest of it is just not worth drinking."

News editor John Harrington joined him on the campaign trail to talk about all things pubs.
