What makes a well-travelled chemistry teacher decide to become a politician for the UK Independence Party? Tim talked to David Kurten, who has taught at state and private schools from Botswana to Bosnia, and Bermuda to New York, to find out. In a wide-ranging interview, David explains that why - with the EU Referendum won - he believes there is still a role for UKIP, and how a hard Brexit is essential for Britain’s future. As one of two UKIP members elected to the London Assembly in March, he also explains how the party needs to distance itself from extremists if it’s to prosper.
