The right-wing UK Independence Party (UKIP) is taking on establishment politicians in Britain, said the party's leader, Nigel Farage.

"Something big is happening in British policies," Farage told Newsmax TV's "America's Forum" on Wednesday. "UKIP is a brand new political party, and we are taking on the UK establishment."

UKIP beat Britain's Labor and Conservative parties in a European parliament election in May, winning 23 seats. Following that win, Farage said they were now prepared to "break into Westminster," where Britain's Parliament is located.

Members of the establishment party all went to "the same schools, colleges, they're all social democrats, they're no patriots," Farage explained, adding that they also weren't "prepared to put Britain first."

UKIP is not like the tea party in the United States because "the tea party was fighting from within the Republican movement," while Farage said his party represents a "brand new political party" in the UK.
