It seems Nigel Farage’s excuse for his comments is “I have black voters”.
Will that continue to be true, if those voters realise what he has been saying about them?
The Archbishop of Canterbury has launched a scathing attack on Nigel Farage, accusing the UKIP leader of racism over his migrant sex attack claim.
Justin Welby went on the offensive after Mr Farage said remaining in the EU could trigger migrant sex assaults similar to the New Year’s Eve attacks in Cologne.
Home Affairs Select Committee chairman Keith Vaz told the churchman: “I would regard those comments as being racist, and a lot of people would.”
Condemning “without hesitation” Mr Farage’s claim, Archbishop Justin told Mr Vaz: “I would agree with you.
“I think that is an inexcusable pandering to people’s worries and prejudices, that’s giving legitimisation to racism.”
