Elton John Distances Himself From UKIP

Elton John says that he does not support the U.K. Independence Party [UKIP], the country's right wing, populist party. Its leader, Nigel Farage says that he spent time with Elton and his partner David Furnish, who teased that the pair might support UKIP.

"Elton will not be favoring any party," a rep for Elton told the Guardian.

In any case, Farage only said that he and Elton "got on very well."

"I was invited by Elton John and David Furnish to their house for a dinner which was held six or seven weeks ago. There were 15 or 20 people there. It was a private dinner but, yeah, we talked about politics and current affairs and all of these things and, yes, actually the press reports were right: I got on very well with Elton John indeed."

In the past, Elton has given support to England's liberal democrats.
