Remember when Nigel Farage wasn't racist, just tired?
Who could forget his apology two years ago after suggesting people may be right to be worried if a Romanian family moved in next door.
Now Farage has come up with an even more wonderful justification when confronted with claims of racism in his party during a BuzzFeed UK Facebook Live townhall event.
Speaking to Jim Waterson, he dismissed claims about sexism and racism in Ukip - exclaiming that people had just had "one too many drinks".
Following the comments, Farage was cofronted by an audience member who said: "Don't just stand there and say it's one too many drinks. You fuel the hatred for your party."
