Farage 'really unhappy' with the EU

A British Eurosceptic MEP has unleashed a volley of insults against the President of the European Council.

Nigel Farage, who leads UK Independence Party (Ukip) MEPS in the European parliament, said Herman Van Rompuy had "the charisma of a damp rag".

Mr Farage told the Today programme that he was expressing his anger "dangerous people" who continued to expand the powers of the EU.
