Nigel Farage ‘not sure’ if he’s ever met a black person

New evidence that Nigel Farage may indeed be colour blind

UKIP will scrap laws preventing racial discrimination at work, says Nigel Farage.

Asked if he would retain a ban on discrimination on the grounds of race or colour, he said: “No, as a party we are colour-blind. Luckily,  we can still make out light and dark shades.”

Mr Farage was being interviewed by the black former head of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, Trevor Phillips, for a C4 documentary. Concerns over discrimination at work were possibly valid 40 years ago, the UKIP leader says, but not nowadays.

“For instance, my butler tells me my cleaner and under-gardener are black but I only know they’re cheap. They’re everywhere though aren’t they? Even on TV apparently,  are you black? I can’t really tell.”

UKIP is determined to slash red-tape from British life, with anti-discrimination only the first target. “Take the law on murder for example,” says Farage “I know it’s wrong, you know it’s wrong. We don’t need a law to tell us, so that can go.”

“If I talked to my children about race, they wouldn’t know what I was talking about. Again.” he said.”I’d need to explain what a black person is first. Look … just in case it turns out you are black, could I take a selfie?
